Earlier in the week I posted about getting a Food Processor for Christmas from my husband.
Here's that post.
I also posted it on two groups that I am a member of.
Here are some of the other responses.
~Only if it's a really good coffee maker :)
~Appliances for Christmas...hmmmm. Only if he wants to WEAR it!
Or...one of those massage chairs would be OK...that COULD be considered an appliance ya know. :)
~I don't know, last year my Mom asked for a really special blender and was really excited that we bought it for her. She was considering another small kitchen appliance this year but I know she doesn't like vacuums for her gift. I don't mind getting small kitchen appliances either, but it has to be something I want like a Kitchen Aid stand mixer (been wanting one of those for a really long time).
~I LOVE getting appliances at any time and think they make a great gift. Who wouldn't want a kitchen aid mixer stand, but with prices averaging $250... I consider this a luxury item. With that said, I think it's nice to get "luxury" appliances. No, I don't want my gift to be a new dishwasher, unless it's going to be one of the really cool high-tech 2-drawer ones that I wouldn't normally be able to buy. I'll take a really useful appliance over jewelry or lingerie any day.
~I'm all about the Kitchen aid stand mixer too. I got one for Christmas about ten years ago...LOVED it and still do! I think if it's a high-end appliance that you wouldn't usually grab for yourself while you were at Wal-mart or Target, then it's okay.
If you put a moratorium on Christmas appliances and he still got you one, then doghouse for him.
~I'd love to get an appliance.. but only if i didn't have it at home already. Nothings worse than have 2 of the same appliances. lol.. then its ReGift time!
~OH HE BETTER NOT! lol we actually quit buying each other Christmas gifts we just get for kids we did buy a new TV last month! flat screen TV so that was our gift we usually get something in house if we buy gifts 19 yrs ya run out of things after a while lol
~I'm all about the practical. But if I want an appliance, I put it on my wish list so it's exactly what I wanted. I've learned to keep wish lists so I'm not disappointed and we don't have a miscommunication. I've also started asking for gift cards. I am tired of junk in my life.
~I love getting practical gifts, appliances included. I would be happy with a new toaster or toaster oven this Christmas =).
~Not unless they are in the wish list. As far as I'm concerned, my gifts have to me for ME. not for the family or whatever, for me. I never buy myself special things or expensive things, Christmas and birthdays are the one time I get them! I prefer to get one or two presents but something I really want than lots of surprises I don't like.
Let me say thank you to everyone that left a comment in the various places this was posted!
I want to add that last year "Santa" left me a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and I love it!!! So, I guess getting a Food Processor from "Santa" isn't all that bad. IF I have a gift that is just for ME as well. :)
