No. No. NO. These are necessities, not gifts. A gift is something I want to cherish. Something that I will remember came from you, and something that you have put a lot of thought into.
Believe me if that beautifully wrapped box contains an iron or a vacuum cleaner then I just may show you what you can do with it. HAHA, I'm only kidding...not.
For me, and I don't know about the rest of you ladies out there, a present doesn't always have to be tangible. I mean a picnic, or fancy dinner, tickets to my favorite band, a weekend away, a holiday to Tuscany... these are presents I'll cherish, even though I can't hand them down to my grandkids one day. I love surprises and getting a gift that my husband has put a lot of thought into is always better. After all with 28 years together, he should know what I like by now.
Actually I am lucky, my hubby did surprise me with a holiday to Tuscany for our 20th anniversary. It was truly magical (I think I'll do a little blog about that next week.) So other than the occasional faux pas he usually gets it right.
How does your hubby rate in the present stakes? I'd love to hear your uppers and downers.
Feel free to spread my words of wisdom, maybe your husband will see it. I pop out my Hunky Hero Tips from time to time. These are subtle and sometimes not so subtle tips that my girlfriends and I make up for the men in our lives ... wine is usually involved.
Did you see my last Hunky Hero Tip #34 I shared a quick bit advice to the men in your world about shoes, and why us ladies love them.
Or how about my Hunky Hero Tip that compared men to a good glass of wine? Hunky Hero Tip #45
Have you got a hunky tip you want to share? I'd love to hear it.
