DH and I got each other a new fridge after our old one bit the dust a couple of weeks ago. That was $800 we weren't planning on spending so we're not getting each other gifts this year. I'm kind of glad not to have to try and find a gift for him. He's impossible to buy for.
I'm sorry you had to get a new fridge. That stinks, unplanned expenses like that. We just had to have our car fixed to the tune of $750, so Christmas just got brought down a notch for us, as well.
