Darling Husband bought me a ridiculously expensive purse (I commented on how much I loved it a few times) and he bought it as a combo b’day/valentine’s present. I was shocked he bought it and thought it was a sweet gesture. But, the truth is – it’s insanely impractical (I need a new ‘everyday’ purse and this one is too small to be that). He wants me to keep it and use it for special occassions – but, it’s not exactly a special occassion purse either. The reality is, it won’t get used often and I feel it’s a crazy waste of money to be sitting around.
Darling Husband says: I really want you to keep it and I hope you do, but it’s fine if you want to return it, too.
I believe him (years ago, when we were first dating, he bought me an expensive and ugly purse that I ended up returning and bought a watch and purse (that I both love!). So, I don’t think he minds that I return it – but there IS part of me that doesn’t want to discourage lavish gift giving in the future 🙂
Also – there’s a watch he has been oogling and I’d love to return the purse and put that money towards buying him the watch…. that is really what would make me most happy 🙂 yet, at the same time, I’m touched he wanted to spoil me with ‘stuff’.
