I'm sorry, but I'm a kid at heart and like getting birthday gifts. Even if it's something small/inexpensive. It's the thought that counts. But over the past few years my siblings decided that it was too much to buy for all the kids and the adults so we (they) decided not to exchange. Now, my fiancee and his family are doing the same thing. I really think the reason is that they can't be bothered to come up with a gift. People wait until a few days before the birthday to say, I can't think of a thing to get you (never looking at my Amazon wishlist with dozens of low priced items). The only people who still think of me are my parents (they send a card and a check) and my fiancee (but he always asks me to help him pick something out so it's not really his thought). This has been bumming me out for a while. Am I the only one who thinks this stinks?

I think it totally stinks!! It is so simple to make a B-day special, even with little to no $$ spent. A home made card, home cooked meal, wild flowers, romantic massage etc... my Hub grew up in a house where b-day's were no big deal so he has had to get used to me!! I like the hoop-la of it all. He always makes me feel so special ;-) Talk with your man, with out being fussy, and ask him to make an effort to make you feel super special. He will probably understand and try to fix it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOLL!!!!!
