    Is it ok for your partner/boyfriend to tell you to go and buy yourself something for your birthday and they'll give you the money for it?

    This has just happened to me and I'm a bit upset by it as it's seems a bit impersonal, but I don't know if I'm overreacting.

    How about giving him a list of things you would like (can even go to the extent of emailing him the links) and then he can pick out of them?

    Or suggest a day/night out as your gift and he can organise it - my husband's christmas gift isn't until September because thats when the band he likes are playing locally. Could be a date night for both of you or if it's something you like and he dislikes then go with a friend
