Great Mate Debate: One Big Gift
Matt got Tracie an expensive couch she had her eye on. Since then, Tracie didn’t get a Valentine’s Day or birthday present. Matt says it’s because the couch was expensive and it was her “one big present for the year.” Tracie says that you can’t buy something for the house and think you get out of gift giving for the next year.
Both Slacker and Steve think that Tracie is being a little selfish, but they also agree that it really kind of was a present for the house. Slacker mentioned that he and his wife buy a vacation and that counts as all of their presents for the year…although they still celebrate important dates.
I think Matt getting Tracie the couch set was an amazing thing he did, but I don’t think it should count as a gift for the whole year. I can understand money being tight, but love is about surprises and being in that moment and if you spot something you want to get for that person, you just do it, not going, well I got you a couch set, so that should hold me tight for a year.
Whose side are you on?
