What do you get your husband when he's one of the most powerful men in the world?
Dec, 15, 2015

Oops, it looks as though Michelle Obama has let slip what she's getting President Obama for Christmas this year! 

On Monday, the first lady made an appearance at the Children's National Health System's holiday event and dished on details of her Christmas shopping after one of the patients quizzed her. 

"Another President Christmas-present question," the first lady responded while laughing. "All right, press, don't tell him. He's going to get some workout stuff. It's not going to be very interesting this year, honey. Sorry."

Hoping for a more-inspired gift, Obama asked the child what they thought the president should get; and the patient responded with the most practical answer. Ties. 

"More ties?" Obama laughed again. "Ties for you, babe." 

Now that one member of the First Family is out the way, the first lady can focus on daughters Sasha and Malia, but they won't be too hard to shop for. 

FLOTUS also reveled that her daughters want cash for Christmas, along with their must-have holiday dish; mac and cheese! 

"It will be some version of [money]," Obama said when one kid told her he wanted money. "They don't want me to waste my energy picking out stuff they don't want. So they'd rather just have the money."
