For my birthday this past january I was expecting to go out for dinner and for the usual presents like always but he made me dinner (he's a chef and bought me a cake from the grocery store, no flowers no card) I thought it was sweet and didn't think about
Aw, I'm sorry that happened to you, Jakesmom.
yes it was sweet that your husband got you cards, flowers and balloons, but every year is a bit "unthoughtful"= not thinking. Just doing what is EASY and convenient. You are a grown woman and after being together for sometime, I would want my man to notice things I like. I would hate if my man, as a ritual, bought me the same thing year after year. I mean, what if he bought you the same exact neckless every year...nothing different, same exact neckless. Yes it would be nice, but do you want the exact same neckless every bday?? Would anyone?
I guess like the other poster said, go let him know the you would love the spa treatment, then every year, about 2-3 weeks before your bday give him a list of a few things you would like. If he then buys you balloons, flowers and cards...kick him to the curb...lol
Maybe he is buying you what he likes, so for his next bday get him balloons, flowers and cards....he would love them.
Happy belated birthday!!!
