WONDER OF A GIFT, MEET MY HUSBAND

WONDER OF A GIFT, MEET MY HUSBAND


















































Exciting campaign 'Giving Extra to Someone Special' provided by my new Santa this year, one of the English banks found us talking about the perfect present for that special person just in time. You know, the one that makes us all nervous to get it just right. I happily grabbed the opportunity (and Amazon voucher for the purpose) to show just how well I really know that special someone by getting him that perfect gift and you better believe I am going to tell you all about it. Before I’d hop on any idea let me tell you how my clever reasoning worked...

Men (from my 5'3" perspective) dream of fancy things but are afraid to admit it. They're into toys but don't want to be seen as immature. And they actually like to be able to USE them outside the sitting area so no mugs with inappropriate bumps and lumps, slippers that loose pieces by the third day, books they go after the title and credits because that's when you're still watching. I mean a long lasting toy he can show to his mates and score some good points, a gadget of a fair value and within his knowledge how to operate it. Girl, you got yourself into a case to handle because the obvious will not work around here that's for sure. Socks? Yes, he's got at least 50 pairs but does it give me right to add to the collection? I could play with cotton content and the thickness of fabric, that could be fun but I've learnt through past purchases that clothes are only right to give him if he's over 70 or specifically pointed at his fingers freezing up on the steering wheel. All the clothes Damian was given were a hit but the awe kept him so surprised he still thinks he might have to give them back so I don't attempt to dress him, at least not over caroling season. You gotta have some self control! 

So he weights it gently carefully removing layers of my loving. Smile is a good sign as he goes further unpacking unnecessary blend of plastic and paper. Here comes his gift - a pair of wireless speakers (thanks to fabulous reviews with only one owner saying: 'these headphones are too tight for someone with not a particularly big head and they fully enclose your ears.' Oh man, how was I going to go round this?). More comfortable than pair of socks, more glamorous than pants purchases happening regularly. Just give him a minute to bask in their silver glow. Hit or total miss? Special gift or specifically unfortunate? I got a little wild with my choice but I kept the wow factor, likes and level of his expertise in mind at all times (only being distracted by dropping this mohair shawl into the basket). Think of the possibilities! Perfect for running after a busy toddler while listening to his favourite tracks, learning how to play electric guitar with his online course, watching movies while we girls have more important stuff to do. And they go with almost everything I bought him the previous years in case he's tempted to forget. x
