Nope, I’m the surprise ruiner in our house. 

However, my husband will buy anything he wants.  We get into it every Christmas, that he’s not to buy ANYTHING between Rememberance day and Christmas.  I always end up having to go return and rebuy his gifts because he’ll come home with what I’ve bought him.  Not because he figured out my game though.

I always get stuff delivered to my parents house if it’s for my FH and I think he’ll be able to tell what it is by the return address. If you don’t have parents nearby, could you start having things delivered to your work or a friend’s place?

OR I tell him not to look at the return address and he’s pretty good about not looking– he likes surprises.

Also, I like to wrap small presents in large boxes and add books to the box to make it heavier than it actually is. They might have an idea about what it is but when they see the huge box, they get totally thrown off. But that is only a good idea if it’s a REALLY awesome present– not if it’s a DVD or something like that. (My ex did that to me once. It was a DVD in a HUGE box and I thought it was going to be something else.)

Or if it’s a big present, I’ll hide it somewhere at the last second (like in a closet), and put a little note about where to find the present in a box and gift wrap the little box. Kind of like a scavenger hunt type thing.

As you can tell, I like to have a lot of fun with surprising my FH and family. Good luck at Christmas!

I have this problem too!  I thought I was the only one.  I know in my case it is because he is extremely observant — he misses nothing.  He can remember what he has mentioned he wants or that I have noticed he might like and also knows me well enought to guess which of those items I am most likely to buy.  And he is always right.  Ugh.

ditto @SapphireSun: i am the surprise ruiner in the house. it just comes with my type-a, computer junkie self + predictable DH. i try to act surprised for him tho 🙂 it’s not fun to ruin the surprise all the time.

it’s easy for me to surprise DH, cuz i never tell him what im thinking, or ill tell him other things to throw him off… and he does a good job of not snooping around like i do 😛
