  • when my husband and I buy gifts for eachother for Christmas we always establish our limit first. As in, this year we will only spend up to (blank) amount on a present for eachother.

  • Well since I don't have to ask my husband from money I just take out the money I need and go get the gift.

  • i just tell mine i need this much money for all the gifts I'm buying, he gives it to me and i buy his with it. He always has me buy the kids' separate so he can go with me that's the only time he does any Christmas shopping!

  • I run the finances and he trusts me to make sure we don't go broke, so he likely wouldn't notice. If he did< i'd simply tell him I'd done some Xmas shopping and he'd be like "Oh ok". done ;)

  • My husband is really hard to buy for. One year, my son and I sat down and made him a scrapbook of the two of them together. It was the only time I have ever seen him cry over a gift. He still tears up when he looks at it, and says it was better than any gift he has ever gotten.

  • When we do buy ea other gifts, I go shopping on my own or do my shopping online for him...
    We ea have a set amount set aside for ea of us to spend on ea other (WHEN there is extra monies that yr) so
    I am never to worried about spending to much or to less on him...

  • We have seperate accounts, but we each have access to each other's account so we both know what is spent and what we have. We keep some cash set aside for these things. If I order something online I will use my mother's debit card and just give her cash, because the website may give away the gift idea. We don't spend more than "blank" amount.

  • I buy things for hubby with all of my other shopping. If there is something big he wants it usually electronics and we purchase it together.
