My husband doesnt care much about birthdays either. If I want something, I have to spell it out loud 3 times a day 2 weeks prior to my birthday.
He usually gets me something after I told him what to get ( usually part of the cooking/baking utensils). Nothing romantic or surprises or other thoughtful gifts either

I don't think crap present giving is hereditary, my mum gives crap presents - last yr she gave df a fire blanket for xmas - but I give df awesome presents, I order stuff months in advance always make a good cake, get dd to do a card etc df has been pretty crap in that dept more often than not though. I just tell him what I expect now, not specifics so much but general stuff like I want a cake, a card, dinner out, and a present u had to think about preferably something u need to order in advance. He is getting better I think, we'll see come Xmas..

Not much thought goes into it here. He walks into shops and sees a pretty thing that i might like and buys it (the day before my birthday usually)

I'm pretty lucky, but in saying that I do to DH what I've done with my family since I was little, write a birthday wish list! The year I was pregnant with DS I forgot and a few days before my sister and some of my friends rang in a panic as they hadn't received my list!

I'm lucky if I get ANYTHING for my birthday - let alone something crap!
I've left countless clues as to what I want for Xmas... But I can't see me getting that either.
*sigh* it does just suck a little when I put effort in for his bday. Guess after 4 years of it I should just get over it!

I've been with DH for 9.5 years and it's grtting worse. I always put in so much effet for DH's bday
I'm not getting anything for Christmas...
I got him an Akubra style hat, all leather. It's crocodile Dundee style with real croc teeth etc; he saw it in a hat shop for $180, found it on eBay for $70. I'm paying my dad back weekly for it though....

Aw, that's beautiful Hoping28.
to those who are in the same boat. Maybe they'll surprise us this Christmas after all.
I'm going to have a chat with DH tonight.
Oh, and thank you GFP for the birthday song.

@Sparklydreamer - you should wrap that book back up and give it to your DH for his next birthday
