Ok so DH finally caved in after 7 years and bought me my dream Christmas present, a kitten. He's delightful and I love him. This means that I won't have anything at all to open on Christmas morning as the present from the DC and any others from relatives will be Boxing Day. This makes me feel a bit sad and grumpy. WIBU to expect a tiny pressie on the day? Just a mug or a £5 sweet bracelet or similar.

YABU - kittens are the greatest gift of all and trump everything else :D

A sweet bracelet?
You're what, 5? grin

FWIW, if I gave a present early I would also give a wrapped present on the day. So YANBU!
However, I would find it acceptable to wrap up flea powder. Be careful what you wish for! grin

You don't need permission from the internet.

He is beautiful and all his gear and jabs have cost a fortune I know. Here he is btw

I dunno. Get him to wrap you up a carrot or something confused

You're lucky. I get utter shite on Christmas Day. I don't usually even bother opening the few that I do receive. I'd love a kitten as a present sad

Food PJs or toiletries.. How easy is that?

YANBU. DP and I went on holiday instead of doing presents last year and we didn't see family until the 27th so I had nothing at all to open on Christmas Day and it was SHIT.

We've all made sure to exchange gifts before the day this year so I won't have a face like a smacked arse again grin

Ffs, that's MY kitten! grin

You never know what he might have planned, so don't count him out yet. I will admit I am envy of your kitten though. I might feel better if I saw a picture though

Matching set sweet necklace and bracelet.

Ok, the kitten is adorable.

Give me the kitten I want it, I want it and I will give you a present to unwrap on Christmas Day. Deal? fsmile

Dh once got me a Hello Kitty colouring and sticker book for Christmas. I can't describe how offended I was.

They ended up in the bin confused

Marmiteandjamislush Mon 22-Dec-14 18:42:10

Ok now I'm v envy! Idiotdh, what are food pyjamas? <Pg and starving>

elephantspoo Mon 22-Dec-14 18:42:30

Could you imagine if they invented kittens that never grew up!

RedPony Mon 22-Dec-14 18:42:38

Ooo matching kittens grin

hmmm, have you any idea of the chaos that will ensue if you open presents with a kitten in the house? You will still be finding bits of shredded wrapping paper in unexpected places for years afterwards.

Be thankful for the peace and quiet and that you will not be facing a huge repair bill for your vacuum cleaner..... grin

Ha hidden that's weird!

GraysAnalogy Mon 22-Dec-14 18:44:21

Awww such a nice cute kitten!

OP spare a thought for us who won't be getting anything at all

hiddenhome Mon 22-Dec-14 18:45:27

I laughed when I saw your kitten bed grin they are nice and comfy though.

I would love dh to get me a Ragdoll kitten.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Mon 22-Dec-14 18:45:47

You send me your kitten & I'll send you the slippers I'll no doubt get. Deal? fgrin

MsIngaFewmarbles Mon 22-Dec-14 18:46:40

DH and DS will both have presents to open so we won't be depriving him of the joy of wrapping paper destruction smile

DH and DS can play with DS's scalextrix and I will cook lunch whilst quietly sulking in the kitchen and downing a bottle of prose co

hiddenhome Mon 22-Dec-14 18:49:22

I know, but you have a kitten. Surely that's better than a boring dressing gown or whatever. Your kitten will snuggle around your neck and you will feel happy smile

DingDongMerrilyOnSherry Mon 22-Dec-14 18:51:15

Get DH to put a bow on the kitten for Christmas morning.

I did say I was acting like a spoilt child!
