My Christmas Present to Myself

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:28 AM
I have spent so much time shopping for presents for everyone else this year and I haven't really thought about what I want. So when John asked me what I wanted yesterday I told him a new diamond necklace.

But then I thought about it. Recently I posted about wanting to buy my husband a new wedding band for Christmas and after that post I began looking into rings for me. I love my wedding ring but we have more money then we did when we got married so why not get a better ring for myself as well?

I couldn't believe how many diamond rings choices are on the market online that I never saw before.
My first step was finding the right cut, color and clarity that I wanted which was a long process since I was doing this online and of course I was not seeing them in person.
I love the swirl design of the diamonds in this wedding band so this may jsut be the one since it's so unique.
I found some amazing engagement rings too but changing my engagement ring is a totally different thing to me. I'd never ask for a new/better engagement ring because I do feel like that's stealing the beauty of that day. Why do I feel that way about one day and not the other, I have no idea, I just do.

I know a lot of you said that you would accept a better wedding ring. So would you ask for a better engagement ring if your husband could provide one too?

I want a new wedding band. I don't even wear mine because it is so wussy and I don't like it. I can't complain because I am the one who picked it out when we had no money. One day! :)

I would love a new wedding band. Just like you and everyone else we were super broke when we married, well we still are, lol, but as soon as my DH gets hired as a professor after graduating I am so asking for a new one!

I don't have an engagement ring because it is not the custom where he is from to give one...and I am okay with that, I just want a really nice wedding band ro compensate!

My hubby did get me a new wedding band and engagement ring. They were for our 10th wedding anniversary, though.
We also didn't have a lot of extra money when we got engaged and got married, so he wanted to replace them. I was pregnant and the originals didn't fit, so it seemed like perfect timing!

The gift I really want for myself is a Dyson. That's how I roll. LOL

We need to treat ourselves every once in while. Wedding rings will be great. At least you know you will wear it everyday. :P

I'd get a new wedding band if we wanted to spend the money on it. But I truly love my engagement ring though, I don't like the idea of replacing it.

I would accept anything Hubs thought to give me. My ideal gift? A housekeeper for a year. LOL

I have to shop for myself evry year being a single mommy and jewelry sounds like a fine idea

As much as I love diamonds, I'd rather my boyfriend spend the money he'd spend now on an engagement ring on stuff for the baby. In the future, a nicer ring would be nice if we have the money for it!
