You have all made me realise how lucky I am! When we first met I used to be given a record by someone he liked and on my 21st we went to a show he liked. I decided that this would have to change and it did.
Now I always ask the family to give me a list of things they would like as they all have their own homes and tastes. They give me a big list so that they will get a surprise. They ask me for a list too. We name what we want but try not to be too specific unless it is a book or something which has to be so. DH reminds them when Mothering Sunday is coming up and I remind them of Father's Day and his birthday.
For special occassions, birthdays with a 0 or significant anniversaries he takes me to my favourite antique jewellery shop and lets me choose what I want.
Sometimes he gets it a little bit wrong but usually he does OK.
It is his birthday in a few days and he has chosen a camera but I have also bought him a few surprises.
