    I probably wouldn't be so upset if this was a one off but it's the same for my birthday I have to get my own present and forget about the possibility of a cake! Even anniversaries and mothers days get ignored, I didn't even get flowers when our first child was born. He just goes on with life and I feel very unappreciated! It's not even about the present it is the fact that he shows little to know interest in making me feel like I matter to him

    Also the fact that I had no idea what I was ordering and if it was right and I asked for help which he didn't give just kept watching YouTube and so now I have 2 things coming that don't match and won't work together and they won't even be here until after Christmas

    I can see how this would get you down... Perhaps your hubby is just oblivious... Try being more direct. Eg "for my birthday I would like you to chose a present for me all on your own of approximately $50."

    Yes I'd just be happy to be getting something also, as I rarely get anything aa gifts at specific times of the year. The worst thing is he half heartedly jokes about what I might want for Christmas beforehand, getting my hopes up, but on the day nothing is given. He claims not to believe in the commercialism. Hmm! I still insist on giving gifts to him, as I stand by my beliefs, not his. But he'd be more than happy if I also gave nothing!

    Yes i would be very upset if this is how all occasions are. You need to have a chat with him perhaps and explain how you're hurt and how you'd like things to change for special occasions. What to you do for his birthday, fathers day, xmas etc? It should be equal

    My DH never buys gifts for me as he is always busy at those times and can't go to town to go shopping. It doesn't upset me as he will sometimes make me something or I'll send the kids shopping with their aunt. However, if DH told me he would get me a present and then expected me to order it and didn't help when he was asked a question I would be annoyed. You either buy a present for someone and do all the work or you give them the money and let them choose it in their own way. So long story short - yes I would be annoyed. Especially if it wasn't important enough to be out together.

    Honestly, I don't care about Christmas presents. I can buy my own stuff now that I'm an adult and I know Santa isn't real. ;-) I never expect anything and sometimes I'm surprised with a gift which is nice but I don't care at all otherwise. I just love being with family and doing all the cool christmas stuff with the kids. That's the important thing at Christmas.
