  • We dont buy gifts for each other. We get for the kids & other family & save up for things we need around the house & our annual anniversary get away. I dont need more knick-knacks, & if I want or need a new outfit- I'll go get it myself. This is the system that works for us. (When we were just dating- gifts were always a surprise for ea. other)

  • I hate demanding something and then getting it. This year I made a wish list, some wishes were out there like the Mercedes, some were $5 items and some were about what I thought he really could get me. With a list of 15 things with pictures and websites linked I was still surprised (not by the new wheels) and some of the smaller items surfaced from in lawas and friends who asked my husband what to get me.

  • Yes. Al;though he has awesome intentions he somehow always picks out stuff that is not my taste. For instance, he knows i love pearls so for christmas he got me a pearl necklace. Now, i adore regular old fashioned white pearls and he got me these tear drop shaped pink ones. I will treasure it always and wear it for special occasions but it is not me. He seems to like it better when i just tell him what i want anyway. That way there is no guessing, no extra searching, and he knows i will never be disappointed. Cute thing is, he gets me what i tell him i want and then he'll add a little special surprise gift just to have something be a surprise. =)
    These days, our gifts are usually something that concerns the baby. Like cameras, books, diaper bag, etc...

  • Mine pays a lot of attention to little things I say or things I admire when we're out. He has a folder of photos in his iPhone of pictures he's taken of things he's seen me admire or heard me mention needing/wanting when we're out and about. He takes the photos on the sly, but it's soooooo sweet. Still, if he comes to me and asks, I tell him. He isn't supposed to read my mind. I just give him a list of 3 to 5 things and he chooses something and surprises me. We also keep a wishlist on Amazon.

  • We don't buy each other for holidays because we get it as we need it or buy when on sale.
