I’d let her know that my idea is a nice card and maybe a damn watch or something.

Wow. It sounds like she wants some major house chores done rather than have her husbands friends over for some real quality time. Like, have a beer, or eat some dinner and relax.

AAAAGH! It’s like a task list and registry all rolled into one….for a birthday?!? My mind has been boggled.

ETA–I love how the “task” for your fiance starts out, “just hang out” and ends “Oh yeah and fix his car too.”

I guess I might kind of see how, espeically since he is gone a lot, this mght make sense in her head but the going from her head to a mass email is a little crazy.

Ha! We are doing this for my FI’s dad’s birthday present, on his yacht, but we are family! I couldn’t imagine asking friends to do this!! Cray cray! 

ETA: Defnitely the woman version of the “here honey I got you a screwdriver for your birthday” gift from the BF/Hub/FI!

Ugh. I’d probably just fire back a quick, “thanks for the advice” and then get the guy whatever I wanted.

I felt like she was kind of on the right track with the install the car stereo thing – since they’ve got money, maybe tangible gifts aren’t the best.

but then…it turned into “I need some couches moved around” — uhh….yeah, no.

Did people actually ASK her what Steve wanted?

@daydreamwanderer: I had the same thought.
