  • My husband does pretty good in the gift giving category.... But, I think that is because I am such a tightwad, I never buy anything for myself. So, the options for gifts are endless!! ;o)

  • I told my husband that I wanted a slow-cooker or a crock pot (are they the same thing?) for Christmas and he told me to go out and buy one for myself--either would make about as appropriate and exciting a gift as a mop (his words) and so he refused to take that suggestion. But. . . that's what I want, and I'm a practical-minded person. . . I can't think of anything else to request!

  • I'd ask for a crockpot on any given day js but not Christmas lol.They are nice to have.

    Grly..obviously I didn't kill my husband over that toaster but we were very clear that a toaster is totally not an appropriate christmas gift from him...His brother laughed @ him and took him out that night to get me something more appropriate..he got me some books and a nice throw blanket..

  • Hilarious. I thought it was a DeBeers commericial at first.
    I got a lawnmower one year, wrapped in newspaper and black electrical tape. He's an Engineer he can't help himself.
    Now, he just acts surprised at the gifts I open I bought for myself on Christmas morning. I bought you that? OH nice!!!!!
    ....Toaster...so funny...yeah, no gifts with a electrical cord. Big NoNo.
    I buy my own gifts, I'm not into dirt clods or practical gifts for Christmas or Birthdays.

  • My husband is getting me a snowblower. I actually requested this we have at least 8-9 blizzards every year and shoveling afterwards is not fun. I am getting a John Deere and can't wait until it gets here. lol
