I need you to stop being so selfish.

And you answer with something to the tune of, “Oh honey, you don’t need to get me anything. All I want is a hug”.

They clearly want to make me happy and show me how much they love me, right?
Why would I be such a meanie and let them anguish over what to get me?
I decided to do my guys a solid and post a list of the stuff mami really likes to make the process super easy.
