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..

Ungrateful!! I hope he dumps you!!!

J/k LOL

He should be smacked upside the head for buying you a space heater. That's a crappy and thoughtless gift. It's a shame he didn't make the effort to buy you something you wanted. But like another poster said lesson learned. Next year buy him a trash can and see how he likes it.

You're not being ungrateful but you should apologize. Just for the sake of the relationship I think you should rub his wounds. The fact is that men's hearts are in the right place but theyre clueless. You'll probably get something better for Valentines Day.

I think there's a way to relay dissatisfaction without being disrespectful...one time I got my older cuz a $20 Macy's gift card since he shops there...I have a lot of 1st cousins I'm close to so I was working on a budget. I knew it wasnt much but atleast it was a $20 coupon basically. He said, "seriously, what am I supposed to do with this?"...to this day I haven't given him anything including for his baby shower. Now do somethin with that.

he actually thought about you when he picked out those gifts and thats what matters.  you shouldve reacted like he had just given you priceless jewels.
wait a week and then tell him he has to take back the heater because it caused the circuit breaker to fail.

Say sorry but I don't get why it is a big deal about the DVD's. You can download the rest of the seasons. He gave thoughtful gifts to you. They aren't perfect to you maybe but many men aren't good at gift giving.

As for the space heater thing, you could've waited. I would've waited at least a day to say something. You could have told him that you love/really appreciate the gift but you don't think you are going to be able to use it because xyz, however you're happy that he even thought to get that for you and that shows that he pays attention. The way you said it wasn't absolutely bad but you could have said it better. I would've at least.
You could have even suggested taking it back with him and finding an alternate gift with him.
I really don't get the dvd one. That was stupid. If you finish the season, you can buy the other ones or watch it online. You can't watch the show because he didn't get you the entire collection? Ermm

What an ungrateful prick. I've gotten gifts I didn't like before but never would I be so rude to someone who even thought to get me something. He could have pulled you aside and said he appreciated your thoughtfulness and next year he can give you some pointers on what to get him so you're on the money. Something like that. I would have snatched it back and told him that I'd give it to someone who needs it. If he can't figure out what to do with it, someone else will.Sleepy

Anyway OP, I don't think I would have done that. First of all I'm not spending that much money on a man and secondly, the gifts he got for you were thoughtful and sweet. You could have waited and made a joke out of it later so he'd know for next time.

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

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

Date Posted: Dec 26 2012 at 9:50am
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.

I dont have the heart to crush anyone by telling them the gift they got me sucks,so i have a closet of gifts i dont like. They serve their purpose during work White Elephant gift exchanges and assorted relatives' birthdays. Just be careful not to regift it to the same person who gave it to you

:-( I didn't think it would crush him since he is not the sensitive type. I apologized profusely though. But I would use the Hell outta some headphones lol. Mine are taped together or I can just keep these gifts for the future I guess..

Posted By: petiteone29
Date Posted: Dec 26 2012 at 10:26am
i would have told him how much i appreciate him being so thoughtful with the heater. I would have let him know that Dexter isnt a show id normally watch but maybe we could watch it together. Then i would ask him if he minded if we went to the store to exchange the heater and get the headphones i really need.

Or just keep everything and go " browsing" in the malls today and show him some things you really want and he will buy them for you. So you will have lots of gifts.

My mom and sis got me the worst gifts ever, even my 6 yr old was like "mom you can't wear that." lmao I acted like I loved it tho, I would never say anything to hurt their feelings. But then again they do this every year, I would think they know my style better than anyone but they get me the weirdest outfits and jewelry. Maybe if I told them my gifts would be things I could actually use but I just don't want to hurt anybody. Tuff situation but for yours I would've waited a few days at least before bursting his bubble and lmao @ him mentioning failing! LOLLOLLOL

i feel you, op. a heater and a dvd collection to a show i don't really watch and not even a collection.....why would he? 
i like to get people gifts they will enjoy. yes the heater was a nice gesture, but if he got that, i would expect that in addition to something else. you guys were only together for a year, so normally people are still in that "go all out" stage.
i don't know if i would've told him flat out i didn't like the gifts, but would've found a way to express myself on them. i am more interested in the reasoning behind the gifts versus the gifts themselves.

he got her the most recent season. so she has to figure out how to watch season 1-6 of a show she doesn't watch.Confused that is a weird gift.

nothing. but there is a difference between getting something for someone that is on sale and that they genuinely like/you would pay full price for it v. this is cheap sooo...this is what i'll get regardless of if they'll like it.

I can understand about Dexter...its really not a show you can jump into. as far as the space heater, I think he thought that would be a good gift for you since say you're cold a lot. it is better than a snuggie.

I think that the way you said it as well as the timing was not right . you should apologize.

I don't like Dexter either, even though I thought I would. I used to dvr it and had like 3 seasons on dvd recorded before I realized I don't even like the show (I never watched any).

 I'd hate for OP to get the 6th season next xmas, and the 5th season next, etc; then end up with 4 seasons of Dex and 3 years married before her guy finds out she doesn't even like Dexter lol

LOLat this because I'm think/hope hub is going to give me  2 crystal glasses for valentine's day. But it would only be a great gift for me because I broke one of our anniversary glasses on our anniv this year--glasses we got as a wedding gift from SIL and we use them every year ONLY to toast our anniversary.

I have been saying for years that I will be crushed when they eventually break because I will think it's  a bad sign. I almost hate I started the traditionCry. He knows how I felt about that  so I think he's going to get me some more so I won't be so nervousLOLLOL.

people have a problem admitting that sometimes you get crappy gifts. it doesn't make you a bad person or the person a bad person. but some gifts are  crappy.

^^I agree. And of course one person's crappy is another person's treasure--with the right timing LOL (like my glasses story).

A space heater would have been a great gift for me when I was in the office because I stayed cold and that would have been so romantic (FOR ME) if my guy thought of getting me that because he knew I was cold at work. But in general, I wouldn't say it's a great xmas gift.

now what's really sad is when you've been married for almost 20 years and your husband gets you a chocolate cake for your birthday. Had me asking my own sister "when did you start eating chocolate?" She said: I didn't.LOL

 She never liked anything chocolate, even as a kid. We both don't know how her husband never picked up on that in so many years. Just from observation, I think my husband has observed that she doesn't eat anything chocolate.

no an asus tablet. it's some sort of pen so that he doesn't have to use his fingers. it was a throwaway. i didn't think he'd like it so much tbh

she made a post about a "friend" and then later confessed it was about her. S.N.- why do folks admit the OP is about them? I don't get that. If you started the lie keep it going. I mean duuuhhh. I digress.

So she had some dude she was messing/sleeping with who didn't have a job. He would come over her house drink her beer smoke her weed. Then she said she bought him two polos and he was driving her 3-series. Woo chile, BHM came for her. She was foolish though for admitting that to BHM.

I make threads sometime and put in the postscript that it's about me when it isn't because that can  get more replies LOL .  Usually I'll say something like 'this isn't about me but if it's more fun, assume that it say it is'
