Not all men are thoughtful . Many women would be glad that their husband remembered their bday ,lol !

How about just asking him to get something in particular you want and say thanks later ? Instead of making it an issue, try working around it

Did he ever get you gifts then? did you say you'd take the massage?

Maybe you could agree to him getting you a recurring gift (massage or something) every year so he doesn't need to try to get creative?

comes home with flowers and balloons from the grocery store and gives them to me along with several cards (romantic, funny, etc.)

I am not materialistic but would appreciate one small thoughtful gift.

Welcome to the board, Lynnk23 ~

I'm interested in your answer to Crab's question about whether he's always been like this or not.

I would try dropping some hints. Point out some things in a catalog or online that you like. However yes it is strange that he gets you thoughtful gifts for Mothers Day, a day invented by the greeting card industry , and no thought for your actual birthday.
