Darling Husband is notorious for crappy gift giving, he knows it, but for some reason he just can’t help himself. The sweet man tries so hard, but it is like when the pressure is on his brains slide out his ears. Later, when he has a chance to put some real thought into it, he comes up with some great stuff.
Last year for Valentines, he sent me an expensive floral arrangement. Um, somehow, someway, he completely forgot I hate flowers. I would totally rather have a new purse than flowers that will die, eh, that is just me. This year for Christmas, I got yet another back massager. Apparently the two that he got me the previous years were not enough, LOL.
Boy, I can’t wait to see what he comes up with this year, LOL.
What was your worst/craziest gift?

@tksjewelry: My husband bought me a scarf and a bottle of wine one year. i was like really? so impersonal. thought the scarf is nice.
I personally love getting flowers but i prefer them to be potted so i can plant them and try and keep them alive. though i would take a purse over flowers too!

For Christmas this year I got a regift!
A good friend of mine had bought a crockpot for me as a wedding present, but it didn’t work so we returned it for a gift card (space is tight and we agreed to purchase it later). Yep for Christmas he purchased it with the gift card and wrapped it up. It was pretty much my only gift…. He also bought me prunes (wtf) and dried pineapples….
Honestly I don’t ever want another gift from him EVER. Just seeing gifts wrapped makes me all excited and I can’t even describe how bummed I am after opening them. It’s the worst feeling. I’d rather have nothing.

Darling Husband is terrible at presents. He always says it’s not about the item and that he thinks it’s terribly materialistic. We used to have so many fights over this:D Mind you, I have never asked him for an expensive gift but the kind of gifts he gives me… ends up in the drawer never to be seen again. Got a CZ necklace once and he knows I don’t wear jewellery and that if I DID wear jewellery, it would be the real stuff (sounds snobby but that’s just me and I already have some genuine stuff so really not interested in more when I don’t wear them anyway).
Sometimes he gives me nothing (literally NO present 0_0 ) and sometimes, he takes me out to choose some make up or ..honestly, I don’t even remember. Basically never had a cool present from him ever!
I tell myself that he does the dishes and lots of household chores which I hate and that he shows his love differently:P

My fiance tries SO hard, and I love him for it 🙂 But he doesn’t have the best track record. I would say the strangest one yet was one of those decoritve waterfall things that plugs in and goes on an end table. It was for my 24th birthday and I had no idea what to do with it. Still don’t actually.

Mr. LK is smart and adheres to my wish list when it comes to buying me things. I provide plenty of visuals and web links. LOL And he knows that all jewelry purchases should be approved by my sister-in-law. She and I have the same taste, so she is an excellent resource for him when he is shopping. 🙂

@totheislnds: A purse would be SWEET! I would love it even better as a gift card and two hours by myself to shop freely and pick one out. Last year it worked for me, I got a puppy as a guilt gift, Bahaha
@PinkMagnolia: That was exactly what I thought about the THIRD back massager!
@redband: I think he will learn the “gift giving” thing, took my brother FOREVER, but finally one day it dawned on him like an epiphany to get his wife cool stuff. He found out what the rewards were
@Bostongrl25: I know, Darling Husband really does try and I feel so bad for him because the second I open it, he knows how bad it is. At least I know he puts thought into it, eh, fingers crossed that he gets it someday and I don’t end up with a whole closet of back massagers, LOL.

One year I got a pink hammer and a homemade snuggie. I already had a snuggie I really liked, so I’m not sure why he had to make his own…

My house is under construction… so I had to find somewhere where you can get an idea of how BIG this rose is! The thing is: I LOVE IT!

Ugh, be happy you get anything. Mister doesn’t even do that. I have to figure out what I want, order it, pay for it, and it never gets wrapped. And because our budget is tight I feel obligated to ask if its alright if I buy anything. Ugh.

@lovekiss: My SIL is awesome and would be great with that, the stupid Army decided that we lived to close and moved them all the way across the country 🙁 I can’t wait till they move back.
@PinkMagnolia: I want a picture of that! He made it himself!?

@happyface: WTF!? Holy Criminatlies that is HUGE! (let me wipe the tears from my eyes)
@Caizn: Fingers crossed for you that it changes, sorry, that is sucky.
@owlandpebble: You just reminded me, one year from an ex on my bday, I got an electric razor, a gym membership, and a wood burning set. I just looked at him and said “Seriously!? Do you really thing that I am out of shape, hairy, and bored?” the horror on his face was PRICELESS! His wife gets great gifts now because of me, LOL, she still thanks me.
