Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry! I'm the type of person that loves holidays and special occasions, so I would have been really upset by that. But I like to make a big deal out of thoughtful, personal gifts for others too so I say that I may have high standards for people (in a lot of ways, really lol) but I don't hold anyone to a higher standard than I hold myself! And I try not to do anything expensive. DH went a little overboard in terms of how much he spent on Mother's Day and I'm not going to try to top that or equal that, but I will put extra effort into how personal or thoughtful the gesture is, just to show him how much I care and that I appreciate him.
