Am I the only person in the world who would rather their SO not buy them expensive things?

The boyfriend made reference to an ipod he was bidding on on ebay, about 170 dollars. I asked him to please nto spend that much money on me- because I know he was going to get me a used 10gig from a coworker for my birthday, but it turned out to be non-compatible. Turns out that that one he was trying to get for himself, but then we had a conversation on what would be too much. The ipod he had been trying to get for me would have been 75, i said that was probably around the cap. I think he is kindof... not weirded out, but puzzled by this.

(I'm currently not employed, but if i get the job I'm working on getting, I'll be making 9-10.5 dollars an hour. He makes 10.5, but as soon as he's done training for the promotion he got, he'll be getting 16. We're both in college, I'm on scholarship.)

Anyone else like this?
Anyone able to explain why?

And... suggestions for one year anniversary celebration? it's coming up, and I've never gotten to a year with anyone before.
