Sunday Confessional: I Hate My Christmas Present

This week's confessional comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to offer your advice in the comments.

A few months ago I was shopping with my boyfriend, and we walked into a bedding shop where I found a gorgeous duvet cover. I made some inquiries knowing it would be way too expensive for me, and it was. So we left the store and I never really thought about it again. I remember telling him "it was beautiful but i can't really afford it, and I don't even own a duvet to wear it!"

Then comes Christmas time. He asks me "I can't decide what to get you. One is practical, the other isn't." I quickly responded, "Do not get the practical gift." He laughed. Well jokes on me because the stupid duvet cover is exactly what he bought me! He even let it slip a couple of weeks ago before he even bought it and I said: "Please, do not get me that duvet cover for Christmas. I like to buy those things myself. It would be like me getting you a lamp or chair as a gift." He seemed to get it, but he still bought the thing!

And even worse! I bought him an amazing dslr camera that I can barely even afford! In return I get this stupid bedding that cannot be returned for a refund. And I still don't have a duvet! Argh. I want to tell him that I'm disappointed with my gift, but I don't want to seem unappreciative. I just feel like he didn't even take the time to think about what I would like and got me the first thing that came to mind, even after I told him I didn't want it. We've been together for a year, not that that matters, but, you know.  A friend of mine thinks he should get me something else to "make up for it." I just feel disappointed and like my hands are tied.

There's lots of great stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
