Christmas Showdown

Does anyone else feel as if they are in a competition with their significant other when it comes to getting gifts for each other.  Who can get the biggest and best gift for each other??  I worked hard this year with the budget given by said hubby to get him items I thought he would really like.  Now all of the guys at work are like, "ohhh you should get him a recliner, or a great pair of socks, or..." Its tough... it is the thought that counts right??  I think one big (expensive) gift and a couple of other things are good for xmas.  No need to go all nuts on each other. 

What do you think??  Do you and your partner get this way about Christmas (holiday) gifts?? 



  1. I concur. My husband, the Big Tuna and I agreed on a budget and then he went out and bought me a mini laptop. Now I feel like I need to fight my way through the crazy crowds and buy him at least a pair of socks.

  2. Oh yes. The budget. Why set one when you are just going to blow it out of the water. I know its not a competition but at the same time you want it to be equal and fair. No one likes to get "cheated" on Christmas or any other holiday for that matter.
