    Default Christmas Present

    Okay. So. My husband and I were talking about Christmas and how he would like to visit family in Florida since I have December 24-28 off. We could fly out the night of the 23rd, and fly back Sunday the 28th on a direct flight that is like only two and a half hours.

    I was like...great...I will book the flights. They are $400 a person after taxes and fees, so the total is $1,200 for all three of us. He freaked out. He was like...We can't pay for plane tickets, plus an $800 purse (louis vuitton), plus $500 for a PS3 for the kid...plus gifts for my side of the family (which I cover through extra work and have a separate savings account for, so it doesn't come out of the normal monthly money pot).

    Sooo...I told him that I would forego the vuitton. And I really mean it...I have the one that was my total favorite (Marilyn )

    IS that crazy? What would you guys do? The Vuitton or the trip? Vuitton lasts a lifetime...the trip lasts four days.

    Well, your going to see family... personally, it would all depend on how close I am with the family I'm going to see. If their not-too important relatives, screw them, i would much prefer an LV. But if I truly care for them, I would rather have a much treasured memory over a great bag. Ooh Gosh, I hope I don't sound cold-hearted...

    If the parents in question are very old [assuming its mostly parents you're visiting or something]... I'd go.
    Ditto if its close cousins or siblings.
    If you're visiting people you aren't super close to... I guess I'd vote bag?

    Viva you are killing me!! LOL!

    I agree with everyone else, if you are close then I say go! If not, then I would get the FAB LV!!

    Or you could keep checking for online specials and then you can have both!!

    I'm with bham2007... you can always buy the bag after the trip... if it means so important to your husband I'd say the trip over the bag. Don't get me wrong I love bags and would love to get an LV for Xmas but won't trade that for my husband's happiness. :)

    ...or else you can always forego the PS3.... lol!

    I have lost 7 family members in 2 years. You should def. choose family. A bag you can get anytime.. a life can be taken anyday. And trust me... when you haven't seen family in a while.. whether close or not.. it's a horrible feeling when they are gone. All the what if's, and I should of's come into affect. I would def. choose the family. A bag is just a material object.. family isn't.
