mine TRIES. he really does. but for some reason, he doesn't ever want to give me what I've told him I would like - instead he wants to give me a"surprize" - which he knows I HATE - and he ends up going a little "off" ...

i don't expect a gift but if I were to get one then yes he is a good gift giver.
At christmas we don't usually exchange but if we do he usually does awesome... me on the other hand not so much but that also has to do with next to no cash flow at this time.

My dh is the type of guy that will choose something he would like to buy me and then takes me along to pick it out. He rarely picks something out for me on his own.

He does surprise me though. If he wants to buy me jewelry (for example) he will surprise me by just pulling into a jewelry store parking lot and saying, "let's pick something out for you."

Aw Jen, that's sweet.

I hate surprises too Mindy. To me they are always a disappointment that makes me have to act happy.

DH is a great gift-giver. He'll take me out on shopping trips and buy me stuff that he knows I want.

Yes, he is. At Christmas he asks for a list but he also looks for things on his own.

BTW - I told him how naughty you are. He said he'd be bringing your present back.

I would say my DH is a good gift giver. He doesn't normally surprise me, but if I give him a list, he would go out of his way to buy everything on the list.

Although, I have to say last Christmas was a surprise, well, sort of...

I asked for a new DVD/CD player for my scraproom. He got me one, but it was a Blu-Ray that had the latest techology for watching Netflix and YouTube on it. While that was a surprise, I felt I really didn't need anything that fancy, but he was just sooooo excited about it that I kept it!! LOL!

I know - I am ashamed... but my dh should know better than to tell me - its TORTURE

Have you warned him? Don't tell me you got a present for me because I will hunt it down in every way possible.

i guess I kind of think of it this way too, how would hubby feel if he knew I knew what he got me when he wants it to be a surprise and how would I feel if I knew hubby snooped?

My Hubby is a really good gift giver. I do not peek on purpose. I found an anniversary present one year, made me cry I was so upset. I couldn't tell him since he had hid it where I should not have ever seen it. One Christmas I overheard a friend who helped him shop for my gift, I never let on, and that upset me alot. A few years ago he told me where he hides my stuff because I couldn't find something he bought for his Mother, he didn't realize what he was saying. I will not ruin the surprise, he gets as big a kick out of it as I do.

My DH is a great gift giver. In the past 3 years, I have sent him a link with the color and size of what I want. Or a book or jewelry.

I tell him just stick to the list and I will be happy. Anything added to, will make me happier; just don't skip the list and substitute. I think I make it totally easy for him!

He usually is. We (the sis-in-laws and I) claim it's because MIL trained them so well.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. For me though it's more about "am I a gracious receiver?" I try hard to remember that it's not about the gift. Also, do I really think that everybody has always loved everything I've gotten them? I'm sure there are things that I've been really excited to give people that haven't been loved. I try to keep in mind the time and thought my hubby puts into my gifts.

Yep, when he used to buy me gifts. I loved gifts when we were dating because it was HIS money. He got me a MacBook, jewelry, clothes, etc. My friends were jealous.

Now that it's OUR money we don't really do gifts! I am a bargain shopper and he's not so I'd get mad when he bought me things full price! Lol. I just buy my own gifts all year.

Donald is an awesome gift giver. He gets me off the wall stuff that I would have never thought of, that are prefect! One year he bought me a panning for gold kit. I would have never in a million years thought to buy it, but we have had a blast with it. (Even found a tiny bit of gold flakes)

Yesterday he took me shopping and got me a kindle fire. Then today I sent him an etsy link with a case I *needed*, lol. It is now ordered. I know he will surprise me, too. He will flip when he gets his gift. I am not the best giver. I get him stuff he needs, like clothes. This year I got him what he wants and he doesn't have a clue...at least I don't think he does.

It depends on what the gift is for... if it's anniversary related, yes. He gets me very unique and perfect gifts to celebrate it. (This year's selection includes a set of cancelled stamp covers from the ship my father was stationed on during my earliest memories and a new goat hat to wear during the Army Navy Game. DISCLAIMER... we got married the afternoon before the Army Navy game, my Dad was in the Navy and I'm a big fan of Navy football and the Navy in general). Christmas is hit or miss, but my birthday is usually pretty good.
