With money always so tight, it seemed foolish to purchase gifts for eachother for holidays and birthdays throughout the year. We have made it a point to spend time with each other, maybe go out to dinner together, and maybe even treat ourselves to a bath or curling up on the couch for a movie. Our no gift rule also takes the pressure off for Valentine's Day, birthdays, and all other gift-appropriate holidays. :) I would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks! I love that you do something together that will benefit both of you! How wonderful!
Very nice point! I love that the two of you enjoy exchanging presents with eachother. It definitely sounds like you are a die hard romantic. Your love for your wife shines through very clearly. :)
I love it. We make 2-3 three cards for each other on birthdays and try to do small things for each other throughout the day, with each card. This year, my husband did the dishes before I woke up in the morning and left me a bag of Doritos! Love it!
I'm sorry you feel that way. We have never had gifts for each other in our five years together other than simply making time to spend some time together on special days throughout the year. His love and attention mean more to me than any gifts.
Peachpurple. Allow me to be somewhat nosey. I have been in times in my life where I was "up in the clouds" I did not pay attention to really important loving things. And you know what? My wife did. Oh wow I appreciate it so much. Think about it. Love
