    I'm sat at home, off work unwell and i'm thinking about what to buy dhb for Christmas. Usually every year he knows of some computer gadget that he wants - not this year though! So I thought about buying him a selection of clothes for his new job. How much do you spend on your partner at Christmas? £100? £200? More? :eek: !!!

    Hi Emma, Christmas for me and my H2B normally does along this route... we set a limit of say, £50, then one of us goes over and the other matches it, then the other goes over and we match it again, last year we ended up spending over £550 on each other - madness!

    So this year we have set a £50 limit and are going on a skiing trip in Jan as our 'treat' to each other.

    I think the main thing is just to have fun on Christmas morning / boxing day, whenever you open your presents :)

    Having 4 kids means me & hubby dont usually get much, maybe £50? BUT the bugger this year has got me a motorbike OMG (hence being so good on CD this time round lol). I was gonna get him a book & some clothes but WHAT DO I GET HIM NOW!! lol
    I say do whats affordable, no point stressing out or upping a visa just for pressies :)
