All year I’ve been taking [mental] notes of things he’s looked at in stores, when watching the show, Shark Tank, I quickly noted when he would say out loud, “I’d buy that”. When he picked something up at a store, only to put it down before we got to the register. I made all these notes in my head, but it all failed me when it came time to remember them.
This month crept up on me. It wasn’t ’till a few days ago that I realized it was indeed the month of April. Usually, I resort to Google for ideas but this year, Google needed back up.
So with Google and Pinterest working tab-by-tab, my quest for the perfect gift began.
Here were some ideas that stuck out for me, and for reasons that will explain itself.
1. Be careful what you ask for.
5. For the man who prepares for the worst … and with this can … should hope for the best.
9. “Duct tape can fix anything, he says. Well, here’s a taste of his own medicine.
Needless to say, I did not purchase any of these gifts for him. Even though, in my opinion, these would make great gifts, some would make even better gag gifts, I could hear him in my head saying, “Oh honey, thank you …”
Wait for it…
“… but, why would you spend money on this?”
“Thank you BUT” … those are hurtful words. Words I try to avoid.
It has happened too many times before. So this year, I played it safe, with something I know he would purchase for himself.
What are some quirky gifts you’ve purchased for someone?
