What R U getting your FI for X-mas?

Recommended Posts

Hehe I like the G-raj. That is so funny!

 

I have no idea what to get FI this year. He has everything. Anything he wants, he buys (he is a student now so this irriates me but whatev, his money). I had the idea for us to just do a small surprise gift for each other, like under $100. Since we are going on a cruise right after and also we spend a lot travelling back and forth to Boston as we are long distance right now.

 

But then he went and got me a personal trainer (I always wanted one). And that was effing expensive. So now I don't know what to do! I know he doesn't expect anything big, but all the things I was going to get, this professional camera, GPS watch, thing to watch movies on his blackberry, 2 new suits, he went and got on Black Friday. So now I have no ideas.

I freaking hate when they do that, especially right before Christmas!!! Obviously they know we are going to get them something... so why can't they just wait??

I'm tryin to find an AFFORDABLE leather coat for Tom. I'm headed to Wilsons Leather at the outlets soon to see what the prices look like!

 

But we're keeping it pretty low-key b/c if our house sells, we're going to have to spend a lot of money on the move.

Stu got one last winter that was really affordable at Kohls... It might be worth checking out. Hope this helps wink.gif

He would love something sports related, but I just don't know.

Casey, Really all humidors do the same thing. It is basically just a choice of size and color. I got my husband one that is like desk sized and has a glass top and about four drawers. It holds a ton of cigars and I think it was about 150 dollars.

 

For you girls that are getting mad at Fi's for buying stuff I made a rule a few years back that starting in November NO BUYING STUFF FOR YOURSELF!!!

One year I bought four things for my then FI that he went out and bought for himself within a week of Christmas I was so mad! So, now we have a rule that you can't buy anything for yourself until after Christmas.

We have the same rule (well...I made the same rule!!) FI was absolutely ridiculous for doing that!!

I should have enforced that rule!

 

But then I thought about it, and we basically each tell each other what we want (sometimes even go shopping together) and the other person buys it. There isn't as much fun in that!

 

Which is why I figured, we should each just buy ourselves stuff we want, and do one small surprise gift. He then ruined that by getting me the personal trainer! (Which I am happy about though).

I wonder if that's something that he would really need to pick out himself, KWIM?
Does he smoke Davidoff 4000s dominican or cuban? If they're cuban where is he getting them from? My FI wants some.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
