What does mom want for Christmas? Yeah, you.

Like about everyone else, we're on a budget but trying to keep the season festive. Our DD is 3 so naturally she gets he most gifts. Hubby got 1 electronic and a poster. The dogs are getting giant bones in their stockings and the cat is getting toys made by DD. I have nothing in my stocking or under the tree. Hubby asked what I want for Christmas and all I can think of is a maternity belly ring (which I don't really want, I just don't want my piercing to close) and things for the up coming baby. I'm putting lots of work and thought into DD's gifts and the best part for me will be watching her open them. But I feel kinda lame not even being able to think of something I'd like for me. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this spot. What are the rest of you "everything for the family" moms hoping to get that's really for YOU? Not like cocoa butter that you only need cause you're pregnant. Lol

  • I cant think of anything.. I think its because I stopped expecting gifts many many moons ago because I stopped receiving gifts maybe at the age of 11-12. So every year after that I never expected anything or thought of wanting anything because I know I wont get anything. Funny thing is I grew up with 3 other siblings that all got something from my parents and family and I was the one without anything. Once some family member gave me the most insensitive gift at the age of 12 I think. I was so offended that christmas changed for me completely.

    Now all I can think of is what I am going to get my DD who is 3.

    sorry for the long reply,.

  • I felt the same way. I just could not think of anything. Until Today!! I went to TJMaxx and i bought my Mom two beautiful Sterling Silver necklaces & earrings and there was a gorgeous silver toggle bracelet with a light grey dangling pearl and the toggle has diamonds at the tips. I could not resist, so I bought it for myself! Some times (rarely as I do) you have to treat yourself! It also saved my DH a trip out looking! Go check out their Jewelry if you have one near you, I flipped out! I also got my Son who is 4 a new winter coat with all the super heros like spider Man & the hulk on it for $20!

  • Who me?

    I actually laughed out loud upon reading your "cocoa butter" comment, OP! I completely get that.
    I would like some Black Phoenix Alchemy perfume. I know I will not be getting that though.

  • I really don't know. I never really think about myself. As for other people I think about things they can use.
