I'm back after two days of technical difficulties kept me from posting. From anything on the web, actually. Sorry to disappear.
Monday I had to go into the part time job for a few hours. While there, I got to talking (who me?) to one of my co-workers. She told me that her husband had gotten her a Kindle for their anniversary and how much of a surprise it had been. She'd been expecting something else and I think the fact that he was able to completely surprise her pleased her as much as the gift itself.
I had a similar experience. My husband and I don't usually exchange anniversary gifts. Instead, we try to take a trip. Not only did we take the trip, but he also surprised me with an iPod Touch. I'd wanted one for a while but hadn't gotten around to getting it. Surprise number one.
He did it again for Valentine's Day. Hubby has never really celebrated this holiday and in fact, shows his love for me throughout the year in other ways. This year, however, I received a lovely Citizen watch. It's gorgeous and, according to one of my friends, so totally me.
Gifts are nice. I love getting them but I think when the man (or woman) in your life really puts some deep thought into what would make you happy and then goes to lengths to surprise you, that is the better gift.
Have any of your significant others surprised you? What's your favorite gift?
