@Artificial-Sweetener:  Hahaha mine are less ‘personal’ but still guilty as charged. I get him video games ALL the time that I know we both want to play.

Yes, I do this. This year I bought him new travel coffee mugs. I gave them to him already and I have already stolen one.

I told people last year that “my husband wanted” a power sander, a hedge trimmer, and the dremmel saw max. he got all 3, lucky him!

Serves him right though, seriously if you can’t think of anything you really want, you get household crap. I’m 99.9% sure this year he’s getting a lawn mower from my mom lol. One less thing we have to buy ourselves!!

I so far haven’t done it but one year he got me a sewing machine… And proceeded to have me take in a number of his shirts. I mean, I love the machine, but I think we both know he got it half so he can have shirts that fit.

My laptop is a touchscreen, and DH was OBSESSED with it, and LOVED poking it!

So last year, I got him an iPad. Now he does it about 90% less, since he has his own device to poke!

@springbride23:  Hahaha I do the exact same thing! He is guilty of it too though and I don’t mind. He bought me GTA V as a housewarming gift haha and we both enjoy playing it.

One of the gifts I bought him for Christmas is Diablo 3 on PS3 and it is totally self-servingTongue Out

Guilty! This year I bought him a double edge safety razor and an art of shaving 4 element kit. He can shave in the morning and be stubbly by bedtime, so here’s hoping!

I got a real-life version of Scrabble (non-digital. I know, right!) and addressed it to “The [name] family” 🙂 I also got him something he requested (Cards Against Humanity expansion packs) which we will of course both get good use out of. 🙂

@aggie2010:  OH yes I did this too!

Bought us a new 93 piece flatware set from Costco on a cyber monday deal and addressed it to both of us from Santa lol. Santa is coming early though, I have to make him open it on Saturdy so I can wash them in time to use them for one of many holiday dinners on Sunday.
