    My fiancé got a huge bonus from his company yesterday!! It’s a long time coming and I’m so proud and happy for him! Any ideas on how to surprise him and celebrate this weekend? I’m so exhausted from numerous things going on in my life that my creative juices are failing me. I just keep going back to “take him out to dinner” which is a fine idea but maybe overdone? I’m also trying to save money right now because of a minor medical procedure I have to pay for, which was not too well covered by my insurance.

    He should celebrate by taking YOU to Mexico.

    How is dinner over done? Sounds completely logical.

    I second Kate’s idea! Money saving tip, invite him over and cook him dinner in just heels and an apron. Much more fun than a normal dinner out and it seriously won’t matter what you make. 🍾

    Take him to a nice B&B outside of the city?

    Honestly, yeah, dinner and/or alcohol is right on point. BUT, I do truly think he should be treating you. Someone just handed him a pile of money! When I get a big check I spend some of it on loved ones. I would not expect them to treat me.

    A special dinner at home is really as far as you should go (stay on your budget maybe a special dessert). It’s his big check he may have plans for you and him to celebrate. Its hard when your so happy for him but be sure that you are not taking his thunder on this with making your plan to celebrate, be ready to change your plans.

    Celebrate by sending him the link to that new Hermès bag you’ve been eyeing. That’s what I do.

    Oh you only link to Birkins? I link to beach houses and Tuscan villas. And then my husband or dad will be like, oh hell, I’ll get you both. Go big or go home!

    You know, up until those last two comments, I was REALLY beginning to wonder whether anyone was going to point out how absolutely messed-up it was that the LW was really asking how she should spend her Fiance’s money on him. Glad you caught that, JD and Kate 🙂

    @kate I told my ex (jokingly) I wanted a new car for our 12 year anniversary. He responded “what do you think the 12 year gift is, steel!!???” I googled it, it was. hahahahaha He had no response.
