    This is the first xmas that OH and i have bought for eachother in 4 years.

    And we had a limit of £50. We cant afford anymore than that.

    Anyway,

    Ive only got him 4 pressies for that and i feel a bit bad.

    I got him a remington hair clipper set. (Hes been bugging me for it for months)
    £25

    A set of like 20 razor tips for his mach3 that come with some moisturiser etc.
    £20

    A goofy t-shirt
    £7

    And chocolates!!
    £3

    I feel bad, but i know all the pressies the kids and i got him he will love cos its things hes moaned about for ages...hence the boring top 2. And presents he'll find funny...the t shirt. And something he can eat that always goes down well.

    Do i look stingy???

    You're not being stingy at all hon! :hugs: That's great for £50 and you know it's stuff he'll like. I bought my OH a book from Oxfam as one of his presents!! I know he'll enjoy it though and that's the main thing so I don't feel stingy at all. We don't have a lot of money and we're planning our wedding for April so I only spent about £30 on him (and that was technically more than I can afford as I'm out of work and don't get JSA!). I'm sure he'll be happy with what you got him and will appreciate the effort! :hugs:

    Beca :wave:

    Its not stingy at all! You got him something he both needs and wants! :hugs:

    He'll have something to open on Christmas morning, that is from you that you spent time picking for him. I'm sure he'll love it :)

    That sounds like a balanced lot for £50!! :) I 'balanced' my DH's presents today by buying him a little something.....

    (Was about to list what I got, then realised he can read this :dohh:)

    I tend to go for something the person wants, something useful, something cool/unique that is a 'bonus' and something they can eat (though DH doesn't like sweets etc!) so that sounds like a perfect little bundle :)

    All DH is getting from me this year is a shirt, an inexpensive tackle box for his fishing lures and a wallet; each gift cost about $10. The last couple of years I spent a couple hundred on him, but this year I don't have my own money anymore!

    I havent got my hubby an awful lot either, it was his birthday yesterday and got him an xbox (2nd hand, cheap or what) so wrapped up a few games that came in the bundle, got him some smellies, motorhead tshirt, xbox guitar controller and thats about it. We're trying to pay off debt atm & once we've done that we're gonna treat ourselves to a new telly (or at least try) so we didnt want to spend a fortune. I feel tight too but dont wanna bankrupt yourself. Its more about the kids anyway isnt it x
