This DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!
My DH's family is the worst for it. They say, 'im not giving gifts this year (they say it EVERY year) so dont buy me anything'.
I actually find it quite offensive wen they say this. I Acutually like giving/recieveing gifts at xmas. This year ive started saying, 'tough, ive already got you one'.
Dont get me wrong i get that money is tight sometimes but im not talking $100 per person. I spend UNDER $10 on most gifts. AND i DONT expect a gift from you but IM gona give you one!!!
Another thing that really gets my goat is when family members say 'im only buying for the kids this year'. WHAT just cos im an adult that automatically means i HATE xmas and presents!! GRRRRR
I LOVE christmas. Giving/getting gifts, speding time with family, eating WAY too much, being generally silly
OK vent over!!
