A great idea I found online is writing a bunch of letters, to be read in certain circumstances - for example:hey everyone,
just wondering if anyone had ne great ideas for anniversary/bday/xmas presents!!
all my suggestions will blow the budget lmfaoWe usually "suggest" our own present ideas to each other nowadays lol... but that's married life for you. Sometimes it's even less creative with the promise/approval of a budget within a certain category (eg. gaming PC or handbag) but works for us and means we don't end up buying something which goes to waste.
One time I did try to buy my wife a lovely handbag for her push present thinking I had scored a rare/unique combination but turned out she bought the exact same bag for herself anyway... so we had to return one for store credit lol.
