Is It Wrong To Buy Yourself Gifts From Your Significant Other? [POLL]
I find it hard to be a good gift giver. I can never be 100% sure if the gift receiver will like the gift or if I just wasted my money. I often find myself buying myself my own gifts, is that wrong?
My hubby loves to buy me things, but he usually takes me along to pick out what I want. On Valentine's day, he took me to a jewelry store and said, "I want to buy you a watch, so pick one out." I love this. Because he feels good for getting me something nice and I feel great because I have something I like.
Well, last week I decided that I wanted some new earrings. So I took his credit card and bought me some. When he got home, I told him: 'look what you bought me. Do you like them?"
I didn't get the reaction I was looking for. :( He looked at me weird and said "yeah I guess." I realized that maybe I crossed the line. I figured since I usually get to pick my gifts out anyways that it'd be fine.
Fortunately, he let me keep them. But next time, I won't go behind his back and buy myself a gift from him. Was it really that wrong for me to do?
