His Vday "happy"

Sunday, February 20, 2011

I like to be creative when it comes to giving gifts.  Most of the time, I think of the occasion and what that person likes — just like most of you, I'm sure.  And, with that gift I give, I want it to be unique and something they will use.  
(Not something they will re-gift later.  Come on, admit it, we've all done it!

With last Monday being Vday, I wanted to get something for Terry that I knew he would love and for it to be unexpected.  Of course, it was unexpected because we decided our trip was our gift to each other.  But, I'm not one who always abides by those rules.  I LOVE to give.  And I put a lot of thought into his "happy" and he was thrilled to see what he got when he opened it, two days early because he found it.

Tactical Operator (Shooting Times), Guns Magazine, Guns & Ammo, Combat Handguns, Handloader
He LOVES guns.  (What hunter doesn't, right?)  And a few weeks ago, while in line to check out at the grocery store, he was flipping through some gun magazines.  So, I decided I would get him a year subscription to one of them.  Only problem, I had no clue which one he would like better.  Have you seen all the gun magazines they print??  I picked five different ones and got them ready for him to open and told him whichever one he liked best, his gift was the subscription.  Of course, being a man, he can't decide between two of them.  So — I'll probably get both of them for him.  

He loved his gift.  It makes me light up with happiness when I give something that is a complete surprise.  Especially when it's a hit!!

It's been a great weekend, y'all.  Let's get the work week started!


  1. Love it! Go ahead and get him both! I love giving gifts that keep on giving!

  2. I think he and Lan could be long lost brothers!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
