My wife just doesn't get it.


Recommended Posts

Go buy it yourself.  Better yet, go in and get fitted for one.  That way you know you will have it for many years to come.  Just a thought.  I would prefer for my wife to not get me anything golf related that way I can go buy the EXACT item I want myself.  Works out better for us I guess.

At this point is not even about getting the putter, is about her getting me something that I really want. 

But yeah it seems that I'm going to have to buy it my self.

Agreed, buy it yourself and instead of tangible gifts for bdays go out to a restaurant you normally wouldn't splurge on, or something like that.

Yeah, I don't think I could accept it after the first 2 failed attempts either, but I don't think it's our place to criticize your wife, since you married her and love her.

That's why my wife and I don't exchange gifts. We have shared accounts, so it's the same as taking our money and just buying what we need/want.

And we can also avoid those unpleasant surprises and don't have to pretend to like a hideous gift.

True love is knowing someone’s faults and loving them anyway. That said, does your wife like to play pranks/ surprise you? She might be setting you up to be genuinely surprised...

My wife and I exchange lists: so there’s still an element of surprise, but anything we get each other is something the other wanted.

Nothing wrong with that.  You can announce to her that you have a great dea for your present, and make like seem you are taking care of everything so as to make things easier for her.  

My wife pulls this one on me all of the time.

I don't even mess around with "hints".  I'll send my wife an email or text that says "This is what I want for my birthday and here is where you can get it". Then I include a link to the exact item I want. No guessing for her and I'm not walking away feeling disappointed. 

That's exactly what I do. Works out every time.

Honey I know my birthday is coming, don't get me anything. I am going to get me this new putter and wouldn't feel right you spending more on me after me getting a new putter

I have used that one before.. also my wife after 26 years knows that for my birthday I go hunting. If "I" decide not to go then I'll let her get me something.. if I go hunting that's what I want and what I get.. done.. And NO she does not go with me, it's my birthday and she does not get to f that up..lol..

Then this sounds like the ultimate prank of pranks if it's been going on for their entire marriage [emoji39].. if that's the case then that's just absolute cruelty.

My wife and I have pretty much foregone giving big gifts. Instead of saying "thanks for buying me X" we just say "thanks for letting me buy X". It seems to work out much better that way.

the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

My approach is get my wife the stuff she wants so that she doesn't get on my case for my own golf spending habits lol.

Yup , sounds familiar [emoji106]

One year she actually gave me a frying pan for Christmas. That was the last straw, now I text, email and tell her point blank, this is what I want, this is where to get it. If I don't get it from her as a gift for what ever occasion it is, the next day I go get it myself!

When I read treads like these, I realize how spoiled (blessed) I am !!!

While back, she saw what I was using with Microsoft Flight Simulator X, so she bought me a $450 stick, throttle and rudder set

I wanted to learn how to play guitar (10 years ago) I now have 4 guitars, 1 Strat, 1 gibson, 1 nylon string, 1 steel string and a BASS, still can only play a couple of chords

Got my first "boutique putter" about 12 years ago, a Byron oil can anser 2 model, I now have 12 Byrons

While waiting for our stereo to be finished, we walked to Roger Dunn, I tried the newly release PING G25's, 30 minutes later my order was in,,,,,,,,

I do same for her, she got hit by the golf bug HARD two years ago, her first set is PING LE irons 7-SW, 4 thru 6 hybrid, Cobra F-8 Ladies driver and customs GSS Byron Anser 2 style

Maybe because we both had horrible prior spouses and we are now making up for lost times!!!!!

"Giving hints" to your wife LOL

🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

Complete multi-sentence description, in writing, with links to said potential gifts and images is the only way to go. And it works both ways - my wife is the one that started that with ME and it's worked out just fine. 

People out here "giving hints" and expecting that to actually work... I'm dying over here.
