Great idea Ruby! Include sizes and colors, maybe website links?

We had the parents over to dinner Christmas Eve. My brother and SIL were in town so they came too. She walked in with a TWO pound box of Sees!

Sigh, I know the stuff is expensive. I know she didn't know I was diabetic (diagnosed for less than a week). But she did know I was working on losing weight.

We opened the box that night, took it to the in-laws/extended family the next day and husband took the rest to work with him.

Whew.

Sorry Sassy. This disease is hard enough as is:(
I'm not married and my kids know better than to offer me such things and ask if they're unsure. I agree though. This should be a no-brainer. You just don't give a diabetic a bag of sugar, chocolate coated or not.

Just an idea. Most men I've known have a hard time shopping for us. Maybe if you buy a small diary type book and make it you wish book for him to look through. Jot down things you'd like to get as gifts.

Hope things get better for you!

Did anyone get non-supportive gifts from their loved ones like chocolate, sweets, cookies, etc? I got a bag of chocolate from my husband. While I know it's the thought, it feels like gifts like that should be an automatic no-brainer from people who are supposed to support and encourage us. emoticon
