    I always remember plus I know my mates likes and dislikes. I am the perfect gifter. I lack all sorts of other skills , but I am the King of giving fantastic gifts.

    Easy-peasy. Get him a rechargeable power tool and wrap the tool and charger seperately- or a TV and remote, etc., etc. Or just tell him how much he means to you, either day. That one never gets old or shopworn, and costs less and means more than anything they sell in stores.

    If he looks at everything in the store, maybe he will remember…or collapse.

    Maybe he can discreetly get Mike to ask? Now that I think about it – discreet? Not one of John’s strong points!!

    Mine is the day after Christmas, and I insist on separate gifts. My husband and kids are very sweet on my birthday. While it was a stinky day to have a birthday when I was younger (no one was around, everyone was too tired, nothing is open, etc), now I use it as an excuse to not cleanup or cook or deal with the after-Christmas mess for one day. :-)
    p.s. I agree with bluskies about telling him what he means to you. I always love that. <3

    This is why they invented pen and paper.

    I had the same issue with my late aunt — her birthday was 12/26.

    Throw him a curveball — give him his B-Day present on Christmas, and his Xmas present on his birthday. And tell him you love him both days.

    Sexist stereotyping.

    John should adjust to the times. Everyone just creates an e-wish list at their favorite stores.

    Mine is Christmas Day, our anniversary is the day after. My honey being there with me is gift enough. Forty-six years and counting.

    My birthday was 4 days after Christmas – which I am eternally grateful. I was named for a man that fell off a donkey, If I was born on His birthday, my name was to be Carroll or maybe even Carol.
    Yes, my parents were that cruel.
