So my Boyfriend Got me a Comforter for my Birthday After 1 Year of Dating...
I'm not trying to be selfish and I really don't want to come across that way so if this is just irrational thinking then please let me know people

...I just really was expecting something a little more sentimental after a year. I'm glad he thought of the gesture and tha he took the time off his lunch break the day before to go get it for me, and I really love him, i just thought I'd get something a little more personal and intimate.

What do you guys think about this? I'm curious

I think that was a great gift. I mean your bedding is very important since you sleep on it every night. A comforter is intimate. You will sleep with it every night. A great comforter makes you feel warm, happy and relaxed.

He also got me an external hard drive off ebay and a cool halloween costume...then later said it was part of my birthday.

I wasn't even pushing for the hard drive or even the costume and if I would have known that included my birthday gift then I wouldn't have gotten it.

Most men just don't know. Always should be a practical item and a sentimental item, even if it's just a single flower.

Hopefully it's a really nice comforter?

Don't put too much thought into it, really, some people just have a hard time buying gifts. At least it's something you can use, maybe? I guess it could have been worse... My bf for Xmas a couple years ago gave me a 100 dollar bill... after I gave him a couple gifts a week leading up to Xmas and a few more on Xmas day... granted, all small to mid-value gifts but still, the effort. And I got a freaking hundred dollar bill. I was a bit upset, we talked about it and the following year he did amazing. Maybe just let him know how you feel?

This^^^. Think how nice it will be if you two stick it out
and have that comforter keeping you both warm 25 years from now.

On the other hand if you don't make it,
it will be a nice donation to Goodwill . ;-`)

OP, I don't know how old you are, but were you secretly hoping for an engagement ring maybe? Something that perhaps shows he's in it for the long haul? After a year, I could see thinking that way...and if so, you probably got your hopes up a bit. hf

I think its according to if its something he can easily get access for cheap -- does he work at Walmart?


I agree, if my husband gave me a comforter or an iron or a broom I would be upset.

For a gift, you want something for you.

If you love him, then don't say anything because perhaps that is just the way he is. This means never expect anything nice for a gift and then accept this as a personality flaw and move on. I am sure you have personality flaws that he has decided to accept.

That is the give and take in a loving relationship.

Good luck.

I probably would have rather had the 100 dollar bill...i know that sounds bad. he said he got it at target and i know it was about 40/50 bucks probably closer to 30/40-45 with his discount card

He maybe a bargain shopper and not realize he has to spoil his girl. Like I said, it's a personality flaw and just accept it and move on if you love him. You may never get good gifts, but I assume he has other nice traits otherwise you would have dumped him already.

Kinda like Homer buying Marge a bowling ball. But we know Homer loves her.

to an above poster, im definitely not going to say anything. i dont want to hurt his feelings. he got me a blanket and thats my gift and thats the kind of person he is. i dont see how im being selfish as another poster said because i really dont know how to feel about it.


im only 22 and yea jewelry would be nice and that 30 bucks could be spent on a nice little necklace or something. or even some survival prep stuff! just something a little more personal i guess. he says he wants to get married and i think hes a great guy, so maybe i was expecting something a little more
