  • Take out an extra $20 the next few times at the grocery store. Tel him you had to buy a few things for you kid(s).

  • Tell him you need clothes or something, or a girls night out, or exaggerate the price of several things.

  • Tell him you want some money to go and have a "girl's day" with one of your friends. Ask for more money than you know you are going to spend then tell him you had a great time(but don't tell him anything else). (You can always have a great time finding a gift for him and visiting with a friend. Maybe go out to eat lunch w/her?)

  • Seems kind of obvious to me, but tell him you need some money to buy him a gift. If he says he doesn't want anything, come up with another way to make the day special.

  • Justn talk to him and if you talk to him he might just be ok with it. But dont just go spend money because you can.
