Who's a better gift giver?

Of course, every gift that you get from your fiancé(e) is wonderful and special, but is one of you just a better gift giver than the other? Does one of you always try to get hints about what the other wants, or do you know exactly what they want?

Who’s a better gift giver? You or your fiancé(e)?

    She's good at material items, I'm better at sentimental gifts.

    I'm more prepared and get my stuff done quicker. I usually know the right gift to get everyone. My FH is usually scrambling around last minute. But I think we are both rather good at gift giving.

    That’s a hard one... we both are really good... I’m going to say I am just because it’s such a toss up Smiley smile

    I'm going to go with me. I actually find things I think he will like and on Christmas morning it's a complete surprise while he just gets whatever it is I say I want so I always know exactly what I'm getting.

    I’m super terrible at gift giving and he’s amazing, lol! This year I did pretty good but usually I try to be creative and end up getting him something he never uses 🙄

    We are both the worst. We always send each other links to things we want so there is no disappointment. As if that isn't boring enough, we can't wait to give them to each other so we generally get our gifts weeks in advance. Gift giving and secret keeping is not our forte.

    I am by far haha. I actually get him things I think he would like both materially and sentimentally. Personally, I think the best gifts are thoughtful and actually what the person likes and would use and such. He does not do that at all. He will do it at last minute and will only take an hour to shop haha

    He's very good at thoughtful gifts and I guess I'm too.

    I don't remember the last Christmas gift I got from him the last gift I got was like 2 years ago. Ever since then the budget got tighter. He does get me gifts and stuff but if hasn't been on Christmas. I do try to buy him gifts thigh from hygienic stuff, manicure stuff, and hair products, to drones and games.

    I'd say we are pretty even in this department.

    I am. He tries, but it doesn't always work out. This year though, we agreed we weren't going to do anything and he told me last night that he ordered some stuff for our daughter without telling me, and he got something for me >: (

    We're about equal whether its material or sentimental gifts.

    We're both equal. He's good at getting things I want, and I'm more sentimental.

    We usually talk about some of the things we like then go on from there. Some of our gifts we get for each other are a surprise though.

    We're both pretty good at giving each other gifts. We're pretty good at listening to each other so every gift is something that is useful/something we know the person will want.

    My husband is the best gift giver. He takes the time to listen and always gets something so personal and sentimental.

    It's fairly even.

    We both are, but sometimes we find ourselves kind of in a competition, we are always trying to top each other’s gift whether it’s a material gift or a more sentimental one
