  • im not a stay at home mom but we are tight on money and what i did for my man was i made a picture collage for him....i went to walgreens.com and uploaded my pics and i put all the pictures i had of my son and my BF on it and wrote "your the best dad ever" on the bottom of the collage and it turned out really cute but my BF likes stuff like that so i think that he will really enjoy it and then just have your kids help you make a card i dont know how old they are but my son is only 7 mo. so the pictures will do for him...... i hoped that helped a little bit.....good luck

  • We don't do anything. My husband hates holidays so that solves the problem. He doesn't care when we do get him anything. His birthday was on Thursday and I got him a card from me and 1 from the kids and he just kind of glanced at them and that was it. A couple years ago I spent 20 minutes picking out an anniversary card for him and he never even opened it. It's still sitting on the shelf on my desk.
    He also sees no point in doing anything for my special days (like Mother's Day, my birthday, etc). I don't even get cards usually. Nobody even wished me a happy birthday last year.

  • I let my hubby choose his onw gift. I give him a limit ( whatever our buget will allow ) and let him get what he wants. we do the same for mothersday. that way we get what we really want. and my oldest makes him a card.

  • calling it his money is bs. it's yours too, you're married to him. get over that mentality and use his money for a nice small gift.

  • Once you are married, there is no yours and mine, there is only ours. As my husband said at a party while he was laid off raising the kids and I was working three jobs, "I want to get a job so that I can rest. I have come to know that being a Stay At Home Mom or Dad if the hardest job I have ever had. I want to get back to work because it is so much easier."
    You should have seen the men's faces at that party. The money is not "his", it belongs to both of you. You have more than earned it.

  • I am a SAHM and I know what you mean about not wanting to spend his (our) money on a father's day present. Instead of getting him something, we are going to do something together. So far the plan is: bowling alley, pizza, and a movie he's been dying to see Gran Torino.
