- Bought the wife a onesie – should I start packing
Originally set a £20 limit for xmas this year, you know, novelty presents type stuff. She has since bought me a nice bottle of whisky and a bike tool kit. Uh-oh, guilt followed by panic buying ensues and I’ve got her a nordic pattern maternity onesie (she’s getting a cardigam picked out by herself). (yes she is up the duff) I’ve flipped up haven’t I? Silent Xmas dinner?Posted 4 years agothegreatapeMember
When I was about 12 or 13 and having spunked all my paper round money at the school tuck shop my family got this for a joint present
This year I bought my wife this as she keeps going on about going to the Glasgow velodrome for a shot so I imagine I’ll be in the shit too

Clarins eh? hmmmmmm.
Think i’ve sussed it – onesie is a present from little S mk1 – to ‘keep mummy all snuggly’ until mk2 arrives. This projects schmoltz on the item thus reducing its likelihood of rejection I now have 4 days, as pointed out above, to get something decent.

A couple of years ago Mr Mule Senior gave Mrs Mule Senior a toilet seat and a blot for the bathroom door for Christmas.Posted 4 years ago
Fortunately she has a good sense of humour and laughed about it for about two hours. Although, to be fair, he had also bought her a very large emerald pendant necklace – which I sould imagine softened the blow slightly.MoreCashThanDashSubscriber
We aren’t buying for each other this year. Apparently.
I have got her a couple of small presents. Was about to enter the shop to buy some nice jewellery for her yesterday when for the umpteenth time this year I got an urgent text to see if I could drop everything to pick the kids up from school as she was busy at work
The words “Well, sod you then” may have escaped my lips as I left the shop empty handed 👿Posted 4 years agothetallpaulSubscriber
I’ve dropped enormous hints for a Chocolate Orange. Christmas would not be right without one present.Posted 4 years ago
Your wife is very lucky 😆
Apparently we were not buying for each other (joint trip to Bruges instead), but on a child free day out she spotted some earrings that ‘I could buy her for Christmas’.
She expertly diverted me away from Richer Sounds shortly after.
