I’m sure you know it’s not really about getting gifts, and I’ll admit I’d be a little bummed too. I’m not expecting to be showered with lavish gifts, but sometimes even a small token says a lot! That said, is there a reason you keep buying for people who don’t want to exchange?

Blueeyedgirl212121:  girl, I know this doesn’t make up for it but buy yourself something nice when your expendable $$ recovers. Something just because.

And your fiancé can eat peanut butter and jelly for a few days to get you something. Doesn’t have to be pricey, but you certainly deserve something. Tell him your sad you have nothing to open. He should take the hint.

Or screw the hint, just say it outright.

Are you sure your Fiance parents didn’t buy you any gifts? seems kind of rude to just send your Fiance presents and nothing for you. 

Maybe you can speak to your Fiance and put a $20 limit on gifts for each other? make a game out of it? I don’t tend to get alot of presents either but I do love giving presents and I would be bummed out if i got NOTHING.  I know my husband is on a tight budget and I’ve asked for pj’s and cozy socks.  hopefully he’ll stick to that and not try to get anything expensive. 

Good luck and try to enjoy the Holiday Season.

How come you can afford to buy all of those other people things, but you can’t afford to get your Fiance anything?  How do you know that the gifts addressed to your Fiance aren’t a combined gift for you both?  They may just have put his name on the address.  You both could just have a very small amount of money each to buy each other something.  It doesn’t have to be expensive.

LittleKBee:  + 1 I am a little confused.

Why wouldn’t you budget so you only spend a portion on your family members and have enough left to buy each other gifts?
