Will you tell him or pretend you like it?

Tell him because he'll notice if I don't wear or use it and ask. We are completely honest with each other.

I'd pretend.... Especially if I knew it was expensive . But my husband keeps all receipts.
This is purely hypothetical for me .... When we window shop through the year, amazingly, if I ooohed over anything, it magically ends up under the tree.

I would pretend to like it but I am terrible at hiding things from hubby.  He would know right away that I didn't like it.

i would keep it because ultimately it is the thought that counts.  He tried, he put effort into it, he put himself into it...that is what matters.

My husband has honestly never gotten me something I didn't like. He knows me very well. But if he did I think I would tell him I liked it. I love him too much to hurt his feelings. I don't think he would get me something I didn't like though.

Pretend to like it.  He's given me jewelry before that I had an allergic reaction to and he still gets all pouty that I don't wear it.  He usually only notices that I want something if I tell him within a month of Christmas, though, otherwise I get jewelry, which is nice except that he gets me really nice stuff and I hardly ever get to go anywhere to wear it so it just sits in my jewelry box.  This year I had  two of my kids tell him what I wanted so he wouldn't waste more money.
