Of course I expect a Mothers Day gift, anyone else?

Posted by   + Show Post

All the posts I see everyone seems to just say they expect time with their kids or like a hand made card.

I expect something from dh and the kids in the form of a gift. This month has been tight financially due to circumstances but I am still getting a little something.


Anyone else celebrate holidays with gifts? Has it become a faux pas?

Oh and dh expects a gift on fathers day. He even has added to his Amazon gift list all year so I can choose form it and he can still be kind of suprised.

I don't expect anything. I haven't gotten a gift from DH since early in our marriage. After that things got really tight financially and now I will at least get him and other people cards and stuff but I don't even get that. My kids are too young to even understand the concept so I don't expect anything. I have to say it kinda bumms me out to know that I'm not gonna get anything. I feel like I would like to at least be acknowledged in the fact that I do a lot for our little family. I know my mom will probably at least get me a card but I don't think anything else will happen. ....I would love to be wrong and totally surprised but chances aren't good for that. Hope everyone else has a happy mothers day!

If history repeats itself, I'm certain I'll get something. I have a very considerate husband <3

I didn't expect a gift, but I got a tablet. Our anniversary is Friday, though. Dh kind of killed two birds with one stone. Lol.

What kind? I have wnated some for a long time but everytime I have fun money I wind up spending it on something else.

Are they hard to care for, like referring to washing your hair and stuff?

I got hair extensions ;/ lol I love them though but I will be getting flowers.

I feel extremely loved and appreciated everyday! MY Dh is awesome, he buys me gifts just because! ,But on Mother's Day my dh and kids spoil me, and why not, it's Mother's day! :)

Quoting jandyrodax:

No, I don't expect a gift. Sometimes I get one sometimes I don't (depending on finances). Either way my husband shows me love and appreciation all throughout the year. I don't need a gift on a specific day to show that I am loved or appreciated.
