SO and I decided to just do stocking stuffers this year, and then next month we are going in together on a couch. Honestly I think we might have to make this an annual thing, even if we skip the 'big gift'. I have never had so much fun with Christmas shopping as I have had picking out these small gifts.

I thought I would throw this out there as a fun way to either save a few dollars, or just make the holidays more fun. Or to take the pressure off from feeling like you have to get the most perfectest, romantic gift of ever. Really what's more romantic than laughing together?

Keep calm and carry on.

Glad you guys are doing the responsible thing! It is very easy to get caught up in the shop til you drop stuff
Sounds like you guys are perfect for each other!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you two.
