Okay, so I know that a proposal isn’t coming for Christmas this year, and I’ve accepted that…now. I believed for a long time that it would happen by the end of the year, though. So when my boyfriend asked me what “practical things” I wanted for christmas, I was still a bit bitter and said that I didn’t think he should get me anything because there was nothing that I need. He just responded with “OK”
I ordered him a fancy keurig coffee pot for christmas this year because I know he has been eyeing it, and it just occurred to me that he might have taken what I said seriously. I want to clarify that I will not be upset to get nothing— I asked for it and was being a bit of a brat. I AM,however, worried that he will feel bad if I give him a 150.00 gift and he didn’t get me something.
I don’t really know what to do now :-/

You didn’t say specifically that you didn’t want to exchange gifts, you just said that you didn’t want anything because there’s nothing you need. I’m sure he’ll get you something. I wouldn’t worry. Since he was so quick to say “OK” he probably bought you something already.

I should add that one year we decided not to give gifts for Valentine’s Day because money was tight, but he STILL gave me flowers anyway (which he does every year). So that is why I think he might have still gotten me something for christmas.

Some people love to give gifts and can care less if they receive them. Just tell him you love giving gifts, if that’s the case, and that you’d rather give than receive.

He’s probably still going to get you something.
