Anyone else totally see where this FML was headed right away? Anyway, FYL, but I find it's best not to complain about items ON Christmas Day, but rather before so they know what not to get you. Otherwise this happens ;)

Pretty sure he wouldn't buy her a present she would definitely hate. Probably wouldn't benefit him very much.

But see, OP has an opportunity now. If she wears that bracelet every day for a while, then tells her boyfriend "I thought these were stupid until YOU bought them for me", crisis averted.

@26 and half the other commentors on this entire thread, are you all totally ignorant or is it that you just can't read? OP ranted about the bracelets BEFORE she knew she was getting one. Geez people...

I don't understand how everyone thinks Pandora bracelets are,'creative'. Sorry to burst the happy little bubble about a ridiculously expensive ugly bracelet, but it IS cliche. How about actually putting some thought into a gift? (The charms aren't creative either. I don't know why people think anything premade is creative on your part) Making someone a gift is much better than just buying them a hunk of metal that has no actual value besides what society places on it because, ermahgerd guyzzzz i

77- I agree with you about the Pandora bracelet; I don't like them either. Jewelry can be a great gift on Christmas. While it is cliche, it's also very romantic. If OP doesn't like jewelry at all; and some people don't, that's totally fine; her boyfriend would have either noticed or knew already. OP just sounds like an ungreatful brat to me, not someone who doesn't like jewelry.

84- Yeah I may be a little biased on this currently. My boyfriend is well aware I hate, hate hate hate, jewelry, and still proceeded to buy me a necklace after I told him a hundred times not to. (Lol I'm not trying to be ungrateful in saying I wish he'd bought something else, I just wish he didn't spend money on something I don't want). Now I have to wear a heart around my neck instead of my usual 'the one ring' on a chain. :'(

87- You're not ungrateful. Especially if you asked your boyfriend multiple times not to et you jewelry. This doesn't sound like OP's case at all. Although, we wouldn't really know!

78 - Not everyone thinks Pandora bracelets are 'creative' or gets them for that reason. My sister bought me one when our cousin died and got me an angel charm to represent him. Each of my charms have a meaning behind them. It's not just a fashion statement for some people.

You don't know what cliche means do you... cliche means that it is a thought, idea, theme, et cetera that has been overused to the point of losing its original value. I dont believe anyone thinks that it has lost its original value, i.e. it's still decorative, still costomizable, still a "pretty" metal bracelet. Itjust happens to be more common place than it used to be.

I think OP deserved it. Sometimes when girls want something from their boyfriend... They would mention it but then say "oh it's not like I really want it", making them sound like they don't want it but they actually do. Get my drift? Maybe the boyfriend thought of it that way?

87- wear both? And the jewelry does have value to it. The thought of someone who wanted to spend far too much money on you for something not nearly worth it. Like Nicki Manaj concert tickets.

I never use to like pandora bracelets until my long term boyfriend got me mine. He had gone to the store, spent time choosing charms that had meaning and I would like. I think it is extremely thoughtful, and greatly appreciate that he's spent a lot of money on me. Some people need to be thankful that they have people who care, and are willing to spend their pay check on someone other than themselves.

Today, as my girlfriend and I were exchanging Christmas presents, she began ranting about how pointless and cliched Pandora bracelets are, and how she would never spend that kind of money on a stupid charm. I got her a Pandora bracelet. FML

Poor guy! People worry their significant other wont like the present and instead of 'I'd appreciate anything you'd get me' he got that. F his life.

I give the guy major credit for still having the balls to give her the present and not regift something last minute and return the gift and get something else. The bracelet was from the heart and has mo meaning to it that the price tag

My argument isn't invalid. I meant drop hints way before Christmas before he actually decided to buy it for her.

Reply

It could have been just a random offhand comment she made after seeing a commercial for it. Besides, most people drop hints about things they actually want, not things they DON'T want. I do feel bad for him, of course, but I think people are placing a little too much blame on her. It's just an unfortunate coincidence.

Agreed. They look like the sort of thing little kids make, with no regard to symmetry or composition, except it costs heaps of money to look like you're wearing a preschool creation. OP's boyfriend should have taken some cues from the rest of her jewellery and gone with something similar in style, or at least have asked what she thinks of the bracelets before he bought it.

Reply

Well you don't want to always get someone something that looks like everything else they own. He probably wanted to get her something different so it actually stood out from her other jewlery.

They may be stupid to you but some people actually like them. My charms all have special meaning behind them. They each were given to me & represent someone special to me.
