First Christmas after Dday, he got a football jersey. The family wouldn't have understood why he wouldn't have received anything. It was simple and brainless. I think he was happy to receive anything...more because I thought of him. Not the value of it. He still has that jersey. I barely remember that Christmas.

I bought him a new bed. He has bitched about our bed for 3 years so I got us a new one.
I have no idea what he's getting me. He can't give me what I want so it doesn't matter.
I'm like a vacuum bag
That holds all that old dirt

Nothing. And I didn't get him anything either. We were both zombies at that point and I was just grateful that I could manage to put some sort of Christmas together for the kids.
This year is our second, so I don't know yet. He has always been a run out the night before so I don't get in trouble type of present buyer, so I am not setting the bar too high.
We shall see. He knows holidays are important to me, so maybe.......

He's getting a lump of coal. Someone has been very naughty (with an emphasis on HO HO HO).

Can I ask: WHY?
I guess that sounds like I'm sending him on a trip, doesn't it? We're still in R.
The book is a 3 volume set he's been wanting for a long time. The travel mug is because we don't have any currently that have lids, and that's what he asked me to buy him. Oh, and I bought him a bag of Bridge Mix.
He actually said he doesn't want me to get anything for him at all. I'm kind of ok with that. We're in a 'good place', I guess, but I'm really not feeling like lavishing him. My heart is still skiddish.

Almost 4 months from dday--he is getting nothing and I want absolutely nothing from him. Even told my 21yr old I would give her the money to take her little(10 & 8)sisters out to get my gift because I dont want him participating in that either. His gift is he is still in the house and not living on the street
I got him a Keurig coffee maker.
I would change the tag "to me from Santa" lol

Can ya'll guess what will happen should *I* not receive those things?
He will be getting his balls on a platter for Christmas....just a guess.

Ok so maybe I'm going a little passive aggressive on this but he's getting a "happy" themed gift. We are a little over 2 months in this and i get the excuse- I'm not happy, haven't been happy for a while so
Movies with happy in the title (pursuit of happiness, happy Gilmore), books with happy in the title and maybe some wall art with sayings about "happy". Working on this little happy gift this weekend! Maybe he will find new ways to get that happy back that don't include his honey bunny slut!

Last year I was pregnant and we were moving. I got him sweet fuck all! It was a gong show just trying to move! He was being a dick and dragging his heels. It was so embarrassing as my parents had to intervene to get us out of our rental in time!!! I begged him to pack on the weekends - I have him 3 months notice that I wanted to move too but he just refused and quite frankly threw a fit over it!
This year he bought a toy online with my blessing - that is until I saw it was 2.5 time more expensive than I thought.... I have no energy for this little man child! :(
Me - BS mother of 15 month old identical twin girls (conceived during HB)
Him - serial cheater
R? Still not sure if this is a deal breaker...

My WW spent last Christmas texting her OM, so it kind of ruins Christmas for me. However, I am going to get her something nice, like I always do.

Herpes, I can only hope.
I'm no longer with him. I left his sorry ass.

I've struggled with this. It's the first Christmas since DDay and we are in hellish limbo. His A is still going on and it's just brutal around here.
He had picked out his own "big" gift already...had pre-ordered it, in fact and then said, "hey...I know what I want for Christmas!". So he is getting that from me and the kids. The kids each like to pick something out for him. From me, he is getting a pair of leather gloves (because he asked for a pair and I'm having a hard time coming up with anything on my own in this moment), and candy and some odds and ends in his stocking.
As a family we have always really enjoyed Christmas, the kids don't know any of this is going on...so we are doing our best to keep up appearances....

in R 3.5 years and it's working but he is putting 200% into it (as he should) to make it right again.
The truth hurts, but I have never seen it cause the pain that lies do.

Since he likes to build Xmas villages during the Holidays, I have been buying him figurines and different buildings for the last few years. He's got some collection thanks to me!!
