So he ended up getting my the coach purse :) We went to the coach store so I could see the size/colors in person to make sure I liked it.... I did but they didnt' have it in stock. That's ok - I was still really on the fence about it because of the price and told him that. I told him I thought it was still too much to ask for... He said if I didn't tell him what I wanted then he was just going to pick something for me. I was going to go with tan boots but I have large feet and shoe shopping isn't pleasant - we went to the Sears on the mall so I could try on the ones I saw online but they didn't fit right, so that was a bust.
Anyway, the next morning he got up before me and ordered the purse. He didn't tell me about it - but he kinda kept asking me leading questions the next day so I flat out asked him and he said yes. I said "I hope you used that 25% off coupon code!" which he didnt... We called Coach when we got home and they are sending us a gift card for the $75ish price difference, so maybe I can combine that with a 30% off coupon at an outlet store later on next year for a new wallet or something.
We don't usually do gifts for each other either... We will usually fill each other's stocking with knick knacks and our favorite candies... I did get him a couple of cheap-o gifts to unwrap Christmas morning but I'm not sure he knows I did that so he probably won't get me anything. We usually go do something together... Like we may go to the zoo for the Christmas lights and go out to eat somewhere nice.
