When I buy gifts now that Fiance and I are engaged, we BOTH pay for them. Whether I put the purchases on my credit cards or if we pay in cash, we BOTH pay (and we usually go pick the gifts out together). So, of course, I put both of our names on cards and stuff. Yet, when people open our gifts they always say, “Thank you, Pinksapphire!” and completely leave FI out. We bought FCIL’s daughter two outfits and an art set for her birthday. When I gave her the gift, FCIL said thank you to me, and then FCIL’s Darling Husband said thank you to me. They didn’t say, “Thank you, Pinksapphire and Fiance!” I felt bad because FI helped pay for this gift and he helped pick it out. It’s not like he gave me the money and I went to the store by myself and got a gift without him, or that I paid for it myself and just put his name on the card. We went shopping TOGTHER. I picked the clothes (because he doesn’t know fashion) and he picked the toy. We split the cost. Idk, I just feel like Fiance deserves a thank you too when we buy stuff for people.
I’m all hung up on thank you-s tonight, so maybe I’m just being emotional, lol!
