You comparing your gifts to his is what makes it sound ungrateful

I'm sure he thought he was doing good when he picked out those gifts.

you sound very ungrateful.

he didn't get you what you wanted---
he got you what you thought you needed.

you didn't really have to hurt his pride-- like you did-- but that is neither here or there at this point.

learn some tact.

hmmm seems like he wanted to give you something practical and useful instead of something frivolous. i use my space heater all the time while at school so while not glamorous, it is useful.

what tv show is it? 

i have told my dh when i don't like something and he tells me. are our feelings hurt? yeah for like 5 minutes and then you get over it

Hey I have a question. My boyfriend of a year and a half got me some very ummm practical gifts. An area heater and a one season of a DVD set that I don't have any of the other seasons too. The heater is understandable cause I am always cold but honestly I don't like space heaters and they tend to mess up my circuit breakers lol. Also it was something I would have got for myself if I needed it.

I got him Polo boots andPolo shirt and asweater. Stuff what he liked that I saw him eye before and was inline with his style. I eau super proud of my gifts!!!!

I nicely said "Babe I can't really use the heater and I don't have the rest of the seasons of the show" no shade or nothing. But he still acted really cold and said something about failing. Now I feel really bad. But I didn't want him to waste his money either. Honestly I had been hinting about what I wanted but he didn't catch it.

Should I apologize, am I ungrateful? Or should I just let it blow over?

What say you BHM

Oh and he has got better stuff before lol. This is not an often occurrence. For some reason though his random gifts are good while Christmas or Bday is off..

**excuse typos. Using my phone
I was going to say be upset and don't apologize, until I saw that last line.. Yeah, your behind is being ungrateful.. Next time, just tell him what you want. A lot of men don't take hints too well..

I w/ you OP. I don't understnd when ppl will send the same amount of $ on impersonal gifts that they could've spend on something they know you really want, esp if you've hinted/alluded or flat out told them what you wanted.

Yea, you should apologize. I didn't even do that to the golden corral chick.

Next year, tell him what you want. Even the little kids know that.

Wow.Did you want him to go out and get you something else? What is the point of telling someone you're not happy with your gift unless its something crazy...those sound like personal gifts. I don't get it. Valentines day is comin up if I was him and cared I'd just throw some money at you

Honestly. While there was thought behind it. But why soil I lie? I can't do anything with one season of a show that I don't watch. I don't want him to waste money. Actually I really hinted and even did at one point say I wanted some headphones. They were cheaper lol.

And I went all out cause he is awesome in a lot of other ways. But my thought process was why lie? We ain't the sparing feelings kinda people lol. I did apologize though. And lol at me being hella ungrateful. I wasn't comparing the cost of the gift. But mores the thought process.
