It’s hard enough trying to figure out what to buy your boyfriend for Christmas, and when your man has everything, you might as well just give up. At least, that’s what Gwen Stefani has decided to do after multiple failed attempts to buy the perfect gift for Blake Shelton.
Stefani recently sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on his popular late night talk show to promote her re-released holiday album You Make It Feel Like Christmas, and the singer revealed that she and Shelton are not giving each other gifts for Christmas anymore.
The Hollaback Girl singer explained that she and Shelton want to give each other gifts, but they just keep ruining the occasion. So, they promised each other not to buy gifts, but then violate the agreement. However, the gift exchange still turns into an epic fail.
“It’s so hard! He has everything,” Stefani told Kimmel. “I feel like we’re both sitting there going, ‘Promise me you’re not going to get me anything. Let’s just not get gifts this time.’“
Stefani then shared the story of a recent online shopping experience. She said that she found a jacket and showed it Shelton, but hesitated to make the purchase because the item was so expensive. However, she went ahead and decided to buy it, thinking she could return it if the jacket’s quality wasn’t worth the price.
But, when the jacket arrived, and she tried it on, Shelton showed up and saw her. It turns out, Shelton had bought her the same jacket for Christmas.
She also told the story of the time she thought of buying Shelton a leaf blower, so she checked out the Home Depot website and tried to send some links to her assistant to get help on picking the right one. But, she accidentally sent the links to a group chat.
Stefani then realized that Shelton was part of the group chat, so she ruined the surprise. But, to make things even funnier, he had just bought the same thing a week prior.
No gifts this holiday season means no engagement ring for Stefani. And, as for those rumors that they have already gotten married, Stefani says that Shelton is still her boyfriend, and she has no idea when there will be a wedding.
Gwen Stefani also told Kimmel that when she and Blake Shelton started hanging out over three years ago, they bonded over their love of Christmas music, and after that their relationship started to blossom.
