A dress? I surprise him with it. Towels, I'd convince him they're necessary, because that means I'd be getting rid of old ones. Usually I don't even mention im going shopping unless he calls while I'm out.

I would tell him that we need something and then go get it.
I get a sort of "allowance" from my husband, for my personal use. If I want something that is more than $60, I ask him first. We are on a very tight budget and he is the sole provider, so I don't think there's anything wrong with us checking with each other before we buy something that isn't a necessity.
