    On Christmas day he told me he had a spa package gift card coming. Well I asked today if he had actually paid for it since I was purchasing his gift a android tablet. Well come to find out he never bought the spa card (honestly I would not be able to do the spa since I have a back injury) Then after I figured it out I asked if he would mind if I bought some fabric for christmas he had the nerve to say "Are you paying for it!!" Well I guess I learned my lesson.

    I guess he thinks it really is the thought that counts.

    I've never been to the spa but the fabric sounds a whole lot better.

    Ouch! How about a quilt "spa" retreat. It sounds you might need a little break.

    Hmmm. I would have immediately rephrased it to him then..

    Hubby: No I haven't actually purchased the spa gift card yet

    Me: Oh honey that is great news because I would much rather have this fabric. To make it really easy for you I already have the page up now for gift cards unless of course you want me to just go ahead and order the fabric now, in that case I will need your credit card.

    Things like this and a singing Christmas tree one year are the exact reasons that I tell my DH that I want a gift card to a specific store each year. The surprize part is that I never tell him how much to make it for. The reason for that is that he's far more generous than I would be. If I leave the amount to him I always fare better.

    My husband and I buy our own gifts then give them to each other to wrap, label and put under the tree. Works well for us, no returns, no sad stories.

    A spa visit goes away but fabric last forever! But if you quilt too much you might need a spa visit to recover!

    I got the same gift from my husband that you got from yours. This is why several years ago, I started purchasing my own gifts. It works out great; I'm never dissappointed!

    Instead of a spa certificate you should suggest a divorce certificate instead.

    I would have not have had an issue with it if we had discussed no gifts but the turkey made such a big deal about it. After a night to cool off I made sure that everytime he plays with his new toy that I put in the That was a GREAT CHRISTMAS gift wasnt it!! I love my husband he works a fulltime job and runs a nonprofit so for him to mess up on this one time out of 364 other days I forgive him but will guilt him for a while :)
