As I mentioned (at the end of this post), G and I don't have any traditions for getting each other gifts for V-Day. We've kind of played it by ear, and each year has looked different.
So what changed that I became a gift-hinting spouse? Two things. One, I really wanted it. I know material things can't bring lasting joy, but this Etsy item was calling my name. Two, G didn't get me anything for Christmas. And to be honest, I was bummed. I was stressed over figuring out our first Christmas at home (we usually fly out to be with family), and the first trimester of pregnancy was leaving me bloated, nauseated, and feeling sorry for myself.
What about you - are you a gift-hinter? Or do you know someone who is? I think there's an art to doing it well that I haven't yet mastered.
