So I guess I’m in a little bit of a pickle, haha. You know, this happens every year. I get so confident about knowing my husband so well, and I’m sure that I know each of his ins-and-outs, until it’s his birthday. Until. It. Is. His. Birthday.
Every year! It just happens over and over again. I think I know him so well, and then when it comes time to buy him the one gift that shows how well I know him, I start to panic. I mean it could be so easy. I could just go to Survival Cooking, find the best ranked cooler or tent or grill, and buy that for him and say, look honey, you love cooking and camping and I am going to allow you to do that with great new toys.
Or, I could do something that he would never expect. That’s what I’ve been leading to this year. I was looking at all sorts of things that he is never talked about buying or talked about wanting, but I know that he would want them if he was given the opportunity. Things that he’s almost too shy to ask for. For example, I watch. He is far too shy and not vain enough to ask for a fashion accessory, even a practical one like a watch. However, I think that is exactly the kind of thing that he might want. I was looking at the best watches under 500, and I have to say that there are some that have his name written all over them. Not literally, but I could get it engraved!
