I did it- bought my husband a Christmas gift. What are you getting your spouse?

As most of my friends know, my husband and I usually don't exchange gifts on Christmas. It's just something we have agreed on since we've been together, as if we want something we usually talk about it and get it. Well, I went out on a limb yesterday and bought him a gift. He is either going to be thrilled on Christmas morning or strangle me. I'm sure it will be a little bit of both! LOL I was in Radio Shack buying a power supply for one of our Christmas decorations and they had a GPS for a really great price. He keeps talking about one but says that eventually the price will come down to a price that he is willing to pay. I figured it's close enough right now. Also, we own a landscape maintenance company, so I'll ask the accountant if I can write it off as a business expense even though it was given as a gift. I would assume I can since I have the receipt and it really shouldn't matter how it was given. I am so super excited and can't wait. I have already wrapped it and put it under the tree. I was talking about my trip to the dollar store when he saw the box, so I am sure he thinks it is a token gift from the dollar store. Woo Hoo! Okay, now that I'm done being way too excited... How about you? Do you exchange gifts with your spouse for Christmas? Do you have anything special in mind this year?

My husband and I always exchange gifts at Christmas time. He bought me a heart neckless and it's really beautiful and I got him a 12 cup coffee maker.

Hhhmm, I think this year will be new clothes! Stubborn man, he wears his until they literally fall off him! lol. That, and cologne! He doesn't get that much because of the price, but i'm sure I can manage it for him!

Clothing is a great idea. My husband is the same way. He just will NOT spend the money to get himself clothes unless he absolutely needs to. I'm the same way, though. I really don't like shopping, so usually with my birthday money I get myself some much needed jeans and have fun with whatever I have left over. I hope your hubby enjoys the clothes!

LOL. Yeah, I hate shopping too! It's ok if I'm out on my own, but often we go as a family and is highly stressful for me! lol. Usually, if I get birthday money, I head straight for the craft shop! lol. That is my money, I'm going to do radical restocking of my collections! lol.

well, this discussion give me thought on what to give my hubby. no, we don't exchange gifts on Christmas. I do buy him gift if i found one that interest me to give to him (not sure if it interest him too). lol usually, i treat him to a dinner or lunch during christmas because he's fond of eating - but in the end it's not really meant for him only because the kids are with us too. lol hay! i'm still thinking what to give him. thanks for the reminder.
