How Much To Spend?

I got this idea partially from bwyer09's post. How much to you spend on your significant other for christmas? My girlfriend and I have been together for just over two years now and I don't know how much to spend for her Christmas present. She says that she wants to keep it under $50. There is no way that's going to happen even though I did tell her I would. I don't want her tot hink that she has to spend a lot on me. The first year I got her a really nice John Deere Sweatshirt ($50) and last year I bought he a new helmet for ATVing ($125 I think). This year I want to do a little better. The past presents have been good and she wanted both of them, but I want to get her something a little more special. There's this necklace that she has always wanted (yes she can play in the mud and then get all prettied up for going out at night), but said that if I ever got it for her she would kill me becaus eit is too expensive. It's about $375. I've been working extra jobs here and there and have enough to buy it for her, but I don't know if it's too much to spend. I think she might actually kill me if I get it for her, but I want to take that chance. It's just money.

I did the same stuff for christmas, birthdays and stuff when we didn't live together. But now that we live together and have a son, i wouldn't dare. Once your money turns into "Our money" i wouldn't dare spend any more than she tells me to on her. Until then, spend what you want, she won't be mad for too long.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to dip into the "new wheels fund" for it, but it's going to be worth it. Wheels can wait.

whats better for you- to get it and her kill you cause it cost so much(but she will really like it) or not get it, and endup getting something cheap and her killing you for that?


more times than not if she says not to spend more than 50.00, it really means YOU BETTER NOT SPEND LESS THAN 50.00!!!!

She really does want me to spend less than $50. She said that she feels bad when people pay that much money on things for her. I don't really care what she thinks hahaha. Shes going to like it anyway, whether she wants to or not. It's just money. I'd rather see her happy than new wheels on my truck. I have until the spring to save up for them anyway.

Just say it!

If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act
like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle, besides we know you will bring it up again later.

If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.
These are all very true. The first one really gets me. If I want something I say it. I hate mind games.
