I got a early gift from my husband

When my husband ask what I wanted for Christmas I told him a personalized gift, something from the heart. He got me a body pillow...... I hate body pillows they are uncomfortable.... I don't know what to make of this.... To make things worse it's one of those memory foam pillows and I'm one of the few that dislikes the memory foam. He gave me the gift early so that's why I know what it is. I don't know what to say... I highly doubt he's got anything else. He never really did put much thought into gifts unless it was for his mother.

  • Find the receipt and take it back. Get something you want.

  • I think you are being a little harsh on him. He probably saw that and thought you would like it. It sucks that you don't like it but it doesn't mean he isn't caring or anything.

  • Maybe, he really did think that it was a personalized gift from the heart- i would try to cut him a little break-

  • Most men are jackholes when it comes to thinking of their wives. My husband didn't bring me flowers in the hospital after the birth of our son, nor did he give me a mother's day gift. Mother's day was a week after my son was born. What do you think of that? I am still harboring resentment over it.

  • the next time he asks you want you want tell him something that you actually want, my husband isn't the most creative person either-for my birthday I got a new electric skillet! Yeah I was annoyed but since I didn't actually tell him anything else I didn't have the right to be upset-I am sure someone just told him that their wife wanted one or the lady at the store suggested it-that's how guys get their ideas. If you don't like getting lame gifts then help the guy out and give him real suggestions

  • If he picks better gifts for his Mom, tell him to ask himself what she would like. Then tell him that what ever he thinks she wants to get you that!

  • some people arent great gift givers..i never have been a very good gift giver, my husband on the other hand is great at it..its just not my love language, ya i think i would be sweet and thankful, but go ahead and take it back if you arent going to use was probably expensive..

  • If you dislike it that much, then take it back. And next time tell him exactlly what you want.
