I know I will end up being the one to get them their gift, and I don't really like them enough to get soemthing "good" without grumbling about it later.
I didn't mind picking out a few toys for the almost 4 year old nephew, and I get stuff for MIL and FIL. Heck, I even tell DH what to get me for my big present. I am just asking him to take care of this ONE THING by himself. UGH, MEN!
I don't understand why some men are so averse to buying gifts. Is it because they don't know what to buy? Is it because they hate shopping? Is it because they think Christmas will wait for them?
