Hmmmm, this is a tough one…

One on hand, I understand where this guy is coming from.

But on the other hand…it’s Christmas, dude!

Go all out for your lady!

But that’s just my opinion.

Read on and see what you think about this story from Reddit.

AITA for getting my girlfriend the “wrong” Christmas gifts?

“Me (29M) and my girlfriend (25F) recently spent Christmas together.

We’ve been together for two years, but this is the first time we’ve celebrated together. We both decided to exchange lists and we each got a couple things from the list to keep up with the “surprise” of it all.

My girlfriend’s list was very descriptive. A couple of the items were “Nars foundation” with her color, “Lush bath bombs”, and “Puma running shoes”. Just to name a few. I was happy to get her these things, but I didn’t, and still don’t, get the obsession with the brands.

It was one-stop shopping.

For Christmas, I did most of the shopping at Target for everyone, not just her. They didn’t have a lot of the specific brands she wanted, but I got her what I found and what I thought she would like.

I got her a bottle of foundation in her color, it was from the brand wet and wild.

I got her a big bag of Dr. Teals bath bombs, which I know are a good brand since I use the salts often.

I also got her a pair of running shoes. I can’t remember the brand name, but they looked fine to me and were in her size.

I also got her a couple other things, but I just listed these to save time.

That didn’t go so well…

On Christmas day, she seemed a bit confused opening the presents, but thanked me nonetheless.

Later that night, she asked if I had trouble reading her handwriting or if I was confused about the list. I picked up on her talking about the brands and I just told her I don’t think we should buy brands just for the name, rather the quality and price of their products.

Since these products are cheaper, and she got more bang for her buck, like with the bath bombs, I didn’t see an issue. The price I paid for a whole bag would have only gotten me one from the company she wanted me to buy from. She got a bit cold after that and said next year we just shouldn’t do lists since I don’t want to gift her what she wanted.

We argued for a bit more, and more or less dropped the issue after a couple days. However, I’m still getting a comment or two from her and now I’m wondering if I was in the wrong.”
