I remember last year him saying that he wanted to get me a designer handbag but he never did. I don't work so my husband brings in all the money (I'm a stay at home mom which is a full time job in itself) and his birthday is here and he got himself an apple iwatch and I saved up $70.00 for him to go shopping as well... that's like $700.00 and all I got was a winter jacket last year (which I needed because I didn't have one) should I say anything? Should I be mad? $700.00 is a little excessive and I'm kinda really pissed off. What should I do?

there is no "his money" "my money" everything is "our money"
I have 3 boys. I knew that me going to work was WAY freaking easier then staying at home with the kids. Men or Women... whomever stays home to raise them has a huge and much more important job.
If you are this upset with anything, not just money, you need to talk it through. otherwise it just will create resentment. Women are HORRID at letting this shit go. I am unfortunately divorced. My ex wanted it, I did not. during the divorce she brought up shit going back to our wedding which is so obsurd. she would never talk about anything. since we never had any big issue, just a lot of little issues that built up, had she been willing to talk through them we might still be married.
tell him what is upsetting you. Tell him you plan on going shopping. You would rather he understand but you are going to do it anyway (assuming you can afford it).
If he is a decent husband he is going to understand and expect you to buy something a lot more expensive then what he got. I would make sure she did.6
