I was listening to the radio this morning and this girl called in to complain about the gifts her boyfriend gives her. One year he gave her spackle because he knew she needed some for her apartment and this year, she found car seat covers while snooping for gifts. She was POed that she had given him all kinds of hints for something sparkly and he went practical.
Isn't it the thought that counts? FI got me a pair of double layer shea infused soft socks because he knows my feet are always cold and I love fuzzy socks. I got his Batman ring that he loves resized and together, we went out to dinner last night for our Christmas dinner at Margarita's. Personally I think FI's gift to me was super cute and thoughtful and practical. I know if he thought I needed seat covers, he would do that and I would love it.
What do you think about practical gifts versus maybe something you really want? (You may really want something practical too.)
