    My DH and I save up all our celebrations into one day (on our wedding anniversary) and call it Family Day. We spend all year plotting and planning each other and our kids gifts- because it's only once a year we try to make it really special. My DH is an amazing gift giver- one year he got me a live peacock, just because I said I love their feathers.

    For your DH's birthday/xmas present you should treat yourself to a special day out (go to a spa, get your nails done or have a massage) get someone to take a photo and give it to him as a present. Hey, if he loves you he should love seeing you enjoy yourself, right?

    I actually laughed out loud to that. Classic.

    And wow, a live peacock? That's impressive. Well done to your DH.

    Yes,....for my last birthday he got me the seven rings and took one away which left six to represent my 6 children, then he bought a pendant for the middle so 3 rings on each side which represented himself. He had to buy two separate necklaces to do it and combine them onto a nicer chain cos both of the chains they came on were crappy. A LOT of thought and I love them dearly.

    My bf is pretty awesome for my birthdays.I got a GHD last year and a gorgeous ring this year.
    My ex was terrible. for my 18th I got a hideous cheap photo frame & 5 $1 scratchies... some guys just don't get it!
    If I were you he'd definately be getting something I loved for his birthday.

    First of all Happy Birthday!! Second of all - What a crap selfish gift. Sorry but it is true I would be majorly ****ed off, I know it is meant to be the thought that counts but what ever.

    My DP was really good last year (trip to Airlie Beach and a few weeks later a baby LOL oops) this year was not as big but we have a newborn so a bit tight with money, still got a nine west bag I have been lusting after. DP seems to give me things that I would not buy for myself but would like.

    How you feel

    My dh just doesn't get it...... :-(

    I have never got a thoughtful gift no matter even if I tell him what I want.....

    It's just how he is.....

    This year for my birthday I got nothing. DP forgot it. He'd better do something awesome next year otherwise he'll end up on the couch for a month.
