Who here bought their SO a Birkin bag for her birthday? Getting hints about one....

Is this a red flag? Sure feels like it.

    TC?
    If I bought my wife a Birkin handbag, I would be hit on the head with it.

      That's the start. When you're holding your head in pain, you'll be repeatedly punched in the balls.

    My wife has two. One for the yacht and one for the private jet.

    It’s one thing to drop hints about wanting to get a dog or wanting to have kids or get married...it’s completely different when they are dropping hints that you should drop the US average household income on a hand bag... definitely a red flag

    Get a high quality replica for $1,500. She will never know the difference and it’s the exact same.

      Quality materials cost money.

      Not $1500, a replica is a replica. The cost of materials in an original Birkin would not be $1500... its just the huge markup

    Have you researched how to buy one? Unless you already shop at Hermès, it’s very hard to buy one new as the stores gets very few, and offers them to long time customers first. You need to get on a wait list. Easier to get them 2nd hand.

    If she:
    - doesn’t work or her ambition is to be an ‚influencer’
    - is much younger than you
    - is selfish

    Then:
    Let her hunt a new sugar daddy 😁

    Send her a link to the Planet Money episode about the bags instead.

    Buy it and keep it in your closet as an investment. Second hand might actually be more expensive lol.

    Also your TC better be like 1mil+ to just casually afford that. Wtf? Like I’d rather get something cooler for that price.
