did your DH get you for your first Christmas together? What about your first Christmas married? And last year? Has it changed in tone over time?

He got me 2 music boxes. One was a Precious Moments glitter globe with Beautiful Dreamer played(fav song).
The other was a white carousel from San Francisco Music Box company. I forget what song it played but it was very lovely.

Ummm I dont recall the gift our first year married but last year I got nothing from him cuz money sucks and we havent gotten each other gifts in like 4 yrs.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

The gifts get more expensive each year, which is great for me!

Lucky mother to five!

DH got me earrings our first year together.
I think the first year we were married, he got me pearls. He's gotten me quite a bit of jewellry.

This year, I asked him to get it all fixed...lol. My earrings need the pearl re-threaded. My engagement ring needs the setting tightened.

They've definitely changed though. My wish list this year was a bench for the shower and a new set of every day dishes, and a new bunch of white tennis socks.

For our first Christmas together, he got me diamond earrings. After that, I think it was a Kindle. This past year, he got me a very expensive set of makeup brushes (and I don't really wear makeup, lol). I am missing a year (it might be our FIRST first Christmas, and we were only 4 months into it, so that might be the one that wasn't super memorable). He's generally pretty good at giving gifts; I'm the one that finds it hard to figure out what to get. I think he tries to spend the same amount each year, but definitely I would prefer it if he kept going along the line of the diamond earrings, lol!

First one, I can't remember. I know last year I got him an RC helicopter. They have gotten more expensive over the years but that's mainly because we've been able to afford to spend more.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

I can't remember for sure our first dating Christmas, but I *think* it was a camera. Our first married Christmas was....drum roll....a printer. Yup, oh so romantic! I actually use it a lot so good for him! Last year was the anniversary band for my wedding and engagement ring. Each year so far they have gotten more elaborate, but I'm home on maternity leave this year, so significantly scaling back. And he got me an amazing birthday present (Coach purse and matching wallet).

He haven't had given me anything on Christmas day since we got married because we celebrate on 30th of Dec as it is our wed anniv. Though I wish we have something for both on the 25th. =P
