If you have done fuck all to help with the present buying (including your own family) then don't bitch that the present is wrong, especially when I said what I was I was buying and you didn't check when I was ordering it.

Can you tell that I am slightly pissed off?!!!

Couldn't agree more

I agree.

I do all the gift buying in our house. My OH fully supports my decisions however - if he didn't he'd get short shrift from me!

As it is, he gets a quick briefing 5 minutes before we get to the gift recipients house so he knows what 'we' have bought! grin

Thanks for your support!! I know I am right but needed to rant

Let's see if he suggests looking for the replacement (the shop being very very close to the supermarket we will be food shopping at tomorrow.

Can I just add - if you don't help with the food, don't complain about it either.

Ha Ha. DH sent me a text yeaterday that said "stop spending money I've just looked at the bank statement"

I asked him if he wanted to do the christmas shopping next year. His reply was "Erm no, as you were"

Money is the other issue in that we have 2 DC so what you spend on one you have to spend on the other. So this alternative present is going to cost an extra £20 so that's another £20 to go to the other DC. So in total an extra £40. We have saved for the presents so it's not a major issue but the reason it goes further is that I shop around and buy things on offer
