From the Depths of Katy’s Inbox…

Katy,

I’ve got word about a gift my boyfriend is getting me for Christmas. Problem is, I KNOW I AM NOT GOING TO LIKE IT.

Do I tell him and risk hurting his feelings? Or should I just go with it?!

Present-ing is the worst.

This happened to me a few years back.. but I thought I would be safe by getting my best friend involved. Turns out, neither one knew what I liked and I was stuck with some diamond monstrosity he picked up at kmart.

And even though I knew that it would never ever grace my neck, I had to act super stoked. He was so excited to give it to me and honestly, it was entirely my fault. I could have prevented that ridiculous purchase.

You just have to figure out how to tell him. For me this is usually pretty easy.. especially if he’s considering jewelry.

It’s going to be hard, but you have to be honest with him OR, get a friend in there who can let him down easy for you. That way you’re scott-free and she’s the grinch.

What do you think?!
