With Valentine's Day fast approaching...do you find it difficult to buy your sweetie a gift? Well, we all know what they REALLY want...lol but let's just think about the material things for a minute.
I really struggle with finding something for Dear Hubby. He is a tricky one. He likes probably almost anything I buy...but sometimes I discover he didn't really use it or like it in the first place. I suppose the WORST gift I ever bought for him and yes, I am admitting this....was a George Foreman grill.
Looking back now, I can see this was a bad choice. ( I even broke my own rule, no appliances!) We were dating at the time and I thought this was a great gift. I thought he loves to grill and during the winter months, he can use this George Forman grill inside the house.
What I didn't realize is that men love the challenge of going out there in sub degree weather and firing up the grill to cook a steak. They change the "Brrrrr!" into a "Grrrrrrr!" and head on out there waving their spatula's like it's a sword and the plate the shield. This whole scene, to me, is outrageous and silly. Not to a guy.
I think his favorite gift (besides the other kind of gifts we haven't mentioned here...ahem!) would be a DVD I created, set to music that meant something special, using photos of us from when we were dating, etc. He really appreciated it and still likes to view it together every now and then which is neat because we always feel gushy and mushy and say "awwwwwwww" look at us back then. Most of the computers now come with these programs already loaded onto them and they are very easy to drop and drag your photos into. But if you can't make a DVD, how about a scrapbook or photo album?
There's always a special dinner you can make...or you can go out. But if you're like me, and you live in cold temperatures, I don't like going out in the snow and freezing weather. We usually go out to a fancy restaurant but this year we are going to see a movie at our church called "Fireproof."
What was the best Valentine's Day present you gave your man? The worst? I'd love to hear about it.
