This year's strategy for Hubby-Wife gift-giving

My hubby and I don't usually exchange gifts for Christmas.  Usually, during the year if there's something we need or want, we just buy it.  Plus, now with the remodel/addition I just figured we wouldn't spend any money on ourselves.

But the other day, my hubby busted out with, "Why don't we buy our own small gifts this year and then we can put each other's name on it."  And I replied, "Really?!?!  I just figured we wouldn't be getting gifts this year."  And then he proceeded to tell me that he thinks Flash (Logan's Hermit Crab) already bought him a small gift.  Do you guys see what I have to deal with around my house?  Apparently hermit crabs are buying gifts now.  

Truthfully, it's a good enough plan for me, because I wouldn't have a clue what to get him. Last year, I made a photo collage of him and a lot of his BASE jumping adventures.  I know he liked it.  But, he hasn't had as many adventures this year--well except for that trip to China!  I still haven't shown you guys any of his pictures from that BASE trip.

Now, the question is. . . . . what will my hubby be "getting me" for Christmas this year?  I really would like to find a new perfume.  So, I was thinking about that.  Or, I saw a really pretty brooch in a catalog that I received from one of the clothing stores that I love.  I really can't think of anything else right now that I need or want!  A gift certificate for a massage is always nice, although I think that's more than we were talking about spending.

What are you hoping for under your Christmas tree this year?  Do you have any suggestions for "my hubby's gift to me"?

  1. I've started dreading the opening of the Christmas gift from my husband-he's a very practical gifter, and always spot on with what I "need", but those aren't always the most exciting gifts, now are they? Last year I got insulated socks and a car coffee mug.

    This year we decided to combine our birthday/Christmas presents so I got a new camera and he got a season ski pass. Both huge splurges we haven't done in awhile!

    Are you going to wrap the present "he" buys for you and put it under the tree?

  2. The camera and ski passes sound like awesome gifts!
    And Yes, I think I'm supposed to wrap my own present from him and put my name on it from him. ;)

    Hubbies are always trying to be practical aren't they? One year I got a shower caddy. I really needed one, but. . .

  3. I'm getting myself a nice scale with bells-n-whistles this year. If my hubz bought it for me, I'd be extremely hurt & offended. But since I'm charge of the gift-buying gig, it's perfect. Now to decide what kind of equivalent present Santa will be giving my hubz for Christmas!
