Bad Birthday Gift From Boyfriend

"I Hate the Birthday Gift My Boyfriend Gave Me"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My birthday was on Saturday. Throughout the week I kept mentioning to my boyfriend I liked earings, rings, basically anything girly. On the day of my birthday I said to him, "I'm ready for my present now, I know you don't have anything though." I knew he didn't, but he said stop asking, you'll see. So it made me think he had something and I better not spoil the surprise and stop pestering.

Then, he said he had to go to the store. I knew then he was going to buy me a gift. He pulled out a Walmart bag when he got home and inside was a hat and gloves and the ugliest hat and gloves at that. Plus, I have never worn a hat in my life; I hate hats. We have been together for three years and I can't believe he thought it was OK to buy me a gift on the day of my birthday. He pretty much just pulled the first thing he saw off the Walmart shelf. Is it OK for a boyfriend to do something like that? I mean, if the gloves were nice I might not be so upset or if it was a scarf, not a hat and if he even remotely thought about me before he bought it, the day of my birthday.
