MERRY CHRISTMAS ANYWAY! Honestly, I’m sure we all knew on some level that it might not happen at Christmas, so let’s share the AWESOME gifts our SOs DID get us! I’ll start:
We decided to just do stockings for each other this year since we redid the roof in November, so he got me all kinds of useful things (t-discs for the Tassimo he got me for my birthday 2 weeks ago, winter gloves, my favourite lip balm, etc) but told me to open the card last. Inside the card was written “You have an appointment the evening of Dec 27th at Harper’s Garage.”(one of our friends is a mechanic). He bought the parts I needed for my car (no small gift – front brakes, axels and CV boots) and is having them installed!!! People always laugh when I tell them the most romantic gift I’ve ever gotten was a block heater last Christmas, but it’s so true! He knew I needed the work done and don’t make a whole lot of money. Plus I drive a 2001 VW so the parts are already really expensive, without the labor.
Anybody else get a non-sparkly but still great gift? SHARE!

I’ll admit that I’m a little disappointed- but I did get some nice relaxing presents- that was the theme… Massaging slippers, candles, ocean/water soothing CD, new iHome, a temperpedic pillow, and “high performance” sheets- guess SO thinks I’m too uptight and need to relax more … Maybe he should propose already!! Lol, but I’m very thankful for the very nice gifts.

I also got a ring but not the ring. It’s a beautiful diamond promise ring. I’m a little disappointed because I was sure it was going to happen. I had actually stumbled across the promise ring before christmas with his bad hiding skills and thought it was an e-ring because it is so beautiful and I had told him I didnt want anything too big for my e ring. But im also relieved because I took it very well and was able to enjoy the holiday just as much knowing that I have a man who loves me and has made the promise to spend forever together even though we may not be in the best position to get engaged right now, with my travelling for my career and him paying off his student loans and working on moving out of his parents house.
Now I dont have to stress about how to react when it happens because I want him to think its a suprise because it really will be now.

I knew in my heart I wasn’t getting an e-ring. As the last few weeks we were looking at rings together online. Anyway it was a terrible christmas for SO and I. Somethings had happened which I had posted on another thread.
Anyway SO put a lot of thought into my gift: I wanted facial creams as my face when I get my period is really greasy.
To my surprise he got me a gorgeous apricot body scrub tub, a make up bag with various facial and body scrubs, masks and creams and a “Thunderstick” hand stick blender (which he got free with his buy two for one Flavourstone cooking set, he gave one to my mum and the other to his mum).
I was pretty thrilled actually.
