upset over jewelry?

my dh is looking to buy me some jewelry-i am not sure what exactly, but i know it's tiffany's. we are on a budget and we have alot of things that the money we could be used for, however it's at tax return and it wouldn't put us in the hole just be our extra money. i am not crazy aobut the idea....would you get upset over jewelry too or am i alone on this?

  • We don't do expensive gifts here. I don't particularly care for jewelery, and prefer words to stuff anyhow. My husband knows he'd be kneecapped if he spent a lot on anything for me, particularly if I felt the money could be better spent elsewhere --and there is always an elsewhere (household, car, travel...)

  • I'd prefer to save the money and put it towards something useful, rather than have a new shiny trinket. I understand where you're coming from.

  • I would save for something you both could enjoy

  • I'm not into jewelry and DH rarely buys me gifts, so this is defenitely not a problem for me, LOL! But I would have to say I'm with you. Can't you simply tell him you'd rather something simple and you're so glad he's thinking of you? If he doesn't listen to that, what's the deal?!

  • My DH loves buying jewelery for me, it makes him happy. (He has a girl from Tiffany that calls him when they get something new in that it's the style of things he's bought previously for me.) I think it's sweet that your DH wants to do that for you.

  • that's really sweet... but if you're just going to be upset about it give him an alternate choice. mine would be a vacation / outing instead so we can both enjoy it.
