I don’t think so. It was (essentially) a wedding gift from Macy’s, and you weren’t keeping it just because. 

Plus you can buy a Kureig other places and it’s probably cheaper than Macy’s.

I’d be pissed too if my Darling Husband did that!  Plus, the cheapest Keurig is like $100.  Unless you’re rolling in dough, that’s too much (in my opinion) to spend on an office gift.

No, you’re not being selfish. That card is not for his employees, it’s for you (the both of you)!

Well it is his gift too, right? Not sure that either of you are wrong per se. A coffee machine goes a long way towards office harmony.

For me, it depends on what your plans for the card were. Were your plans to go buy a new pair of shoes? Or was it to buy something you wanted but didn’t get off your registry?

If it was something just for your benefit, yes, I think you’re being selfish. If it was something for the two of you, then no.

We have 2 Keuregs in my office lol. But I do see your point. I drink tea so don’t use it!

@Mrs.Jansen:  

 

Err…why doesn’t he just pay for the coffee maker himself and then write it off on his taxes as a corporate gift expense?

@Mrs.Jansen:  Well then, no! The employees can drink coffee from a less expensive coffee maker!

I see his reasoning and it’s a genuinely nice thing to do but I would tell him that when the time comes for that new comforter, the money is coming out of his wallet!

Look at it this way.  He “needs” to buy a coffee maker and you “need” to by a comforter.  Either way the money is going to have to be spent.  Whether you use the gift card fo the coffee maker and cash for the comforter or the other way around makes no difference because you’re still spending the same amount in the end.  So I don’t see a reason to not give him the gift card and just use cash to buy the comforter.
