Why is she a bitch? She does not know that her boyfriend is willing to spend 700 dollar (wtf??) on a Christmas gift. He can't blame her, it's obvious that they didn't talk about (the amount of) presents.They should work on the communication.

...because it clearly isn't as easy as you might think? To avoid bad suprises like this? To don't feel bad about yourself if your partner bought something really expensive whilst you did not? I absolutely have no idea why you should discuss prices.

What's the point of exchanging gifts if you're each going to spend an equal amount each way? You may as well just buy your own gift. Also maybe she's downplaying what she's going to get you for Christmas in order to surprise you.

Look, it doesn't have to be equal at exact one dollar (duuh), but I think there is a great gaping hole between zero dollars and sevenhundred, don't you? And I suggest we may avoid that in the future. I am trying to convince my boyfriend to don't buy anything expensive (and for me, that's around 50 dollars) if he's not sure whether I'll like it.

I agree with Djeepee. My boyfriend and I communicate about what we want and how much is too much. While I want to get him something he'll really like, I don't want to break the bank while he's going for something smaller and vice versa. I wouldn't want to make someone else feel like their gift isn't as good or something. Point blank, it's just out of consideration.

yes, but if he is willing to spend that much money on her then they must be in a pretty serious relationship and she should at least attempt to get him SOMETHING, even if it is 'opening up to him a little more'. just a thought.

Precisely what I was thinking. In a month's time this would be a FML, but now it's the most easily solved problem in the world. P.S. - OP, I don't know you, your girlfriend, or anything about you two apart from this story, but I can tell you here and now that this relationship won't last. You're clearly on completely different wavelengths.

Hope you are talking about OP being a gold digger to ask for stupidly expensive shades just because HE was stupid enough to buy her a $700 bracelet. Surely you were not saying the gf is a gold digger? She is unaware of the bracelet and was clear she is not buying anything expensive and that he should not either. A lot of thing factor into the appropriateness of a gift. Starting with their respective incomes. Are they earning the same amount or is he earning significantly more? What are their financial obligations? Depending on their ages, he would have been wiser to put that towards a weekend somewhere really nice.

I agree with #29. Why on earth would you call the girl a gold digger. That would imply she was out for him to buy her expensive things. Obviously not, if she told him just the opposite.
