FI really hates shopping so I usually try to help out and give hints about what I’d like but this year I’m at a loss. We typically spend $150-300 on each other but have been known to spend up to $450. Being that our wedding is cutting into our funds I’d like to be under $250. What should I ask for bees?! What item do you love and can’t love without out? I usually have ideas but this year I have none.

IDK if you already have one or not (and it’s over your price range), but DH just gave me my early birthday present, yesterday–a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1-Inch).

I have a kindle fire that I love since I read alot plus I get internet,games etc and its def within your price. I also agree with pp’s a nice purse or shoes would be nice if your into that. Some of your likes and hobbies would help alot.

You could get one of those chunky fun gold Michael Kors watches. Or a Louis Vuitton Cles (coin purse). Some Tory Burch Reva flats or Thora flip flops. A pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses. Gift cert to Lululemon, Mac, Blue Mercury, or maybe like a spa or yoga place in your town/city.
I’ve pretty much just listed what I’d want lol What do you like to do or wear, etc?

My bday is coming up and on my list is; perfume, new kindle, a purse I saw on sale at Nordstrom.
One item I can’t live without, that I wouldn’t have bought myself, is my clarisonic brush. It’s amazing!

@Honey-Bee: My birthday is in a week and my FI keeps pestering me and I have no ideas–thanks for asking others for me! I think I’m going to ask for dinner and a show downtown. We moved in together a month ago and I’m still horrified at how much stuff we have, so I don’t want things.

New perfume or your wedding jewellery so that it doesn’t eat into your budget.
I’d want a Tiffany bracelet.
