@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. 🙂

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.
