Who is the most difficult person to buy a gift for?

For me it is always the father on law and my own dad. I NEVER know what to get them.

  • My husband because he goes out and buys what he wants so it doesn't leave me with much left to get. The only stuff he doesn't go get is way too expensive, which is why he didn't get it in the first place. LoL I'm the same way though so I'm sure he has a difficult time for me as well.

  • Father-in-law, hands down. My husband isn't much help, either, considering its his own dad.

  • The most difficult person to buy for is my husband. I always come up with what I THINK are great ideas. I haven't yet been able to buy him what I want, he always finds out and says thank you, but I know you don't have a lot of money to buy me things. My gift is watching you guys open presents.

  • Definitely my fiance. Just like other people have said they go and get what they want when they want. This year he has bought ALL of his own gifts. Literally, he bought himself at least 4 items that he wanted. I let him know when we was purchasing this last one that I was not getting him anything more. My mother trails right behind him because she always wants the same thing every year. Always White Diamonds perfume! I always think one of my bros/sis' is going to get it for her but that's ALL she wants

  • Ugh, hubby. Here's the conversation we have every birthday and Christmas:
    Me: What present do you want?
    Him: Nothing.

    So that's what he gets. . . . nothing!
