I am usually a practical birthday gift kind of gal. Not, like, microwave practical, but I (usually) ask for camera equipment or clothing when my husband tells me to choose a birthday gift. (My husband is a lot of excellent things but an intuitive gift giver he is not. I usually have to be extremely specific with what I want for gifts. I'm not complaining, I just feel like I need to clarify our situation. I'm not a brat, I swear! This just works best for us.)
I'm turning 30 next week and I feel like my 30th birthday deserves a bit of indulgence. I told my husband I want this ring:
It's beautiful and simple and exactly my taste and ... not in the least bit practical. I don't need a ring for my 30th birthday but I want this ring. My husband, bless his heart, told me I should ask for something useful.
Are you a practical gift buyer? Or do you go for the luxurious gifts? What about your own birthday? Do you ask for useful gifts or extravagant ones?
