My wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I don’t mind telling you that I’ve been dreading it.
Not because I’ve survived another year with the wife, but because I have the worst present-buying skills of all time.
See the rest of the post after the cut!
Getting it Wrong – Over and Over
I don’t know what comes over me whenever an important occasion comes around, but I never seem to get it right.
Whether I’m rushing to choose something at the last moment or I plan months in advance, I still consistently get it wrong. I mean, just to give you a taste of my ineptitude, here are a few examples…
A beautiful lace babydoll nightie. Yes, I thought it would be perfect too until she tried it on and realized it was three sizes too small. Disaster.
Then there was the time I bought her a box of chocolates, completely forgetting about her dairy allergy – that didn’t go too well either.
And let’s not mention the time I thought it would be a fantastic idea to renew her slimming club membership as a birthday gift…
Yes, it’s fair to say that weeks after any special day, I’m still firmly in the dog house.
This year though, I’m determined things are going to be different. I think this time I’m actually going to make the right impression for a change.
A Creative Gift
I’m going to tell the truth here guys – my gift this year wasn’t my idea. A friend of mine gave me the inspiration.
He’d bought one of these for his wife at Christmas and she loved it, so this time I’m pretty sure I’m onto a winner.
No, it isn’t another wilting garage forecourt bouquet – although it is flower-related.
This year, I’m going to give her one of the absolutely unique gifts for her from The Eternity Rose.
I know that I should be choosing a gift that shows her how much I love and appreciate her all year round, not just on one day, but it isn’t easy is it?
Every guy knows just how hard it can be, especially when their usual approach to shopping is just to rush in, grab something from the shelf and run to the checkout.
Well, I’ve learned from hard experience that that’s an approach which works for buying a few snacks before the game, but not when it comes to choosing a special gift for the wife.
Still, I’m pretty sure that she’s going to love the gold-dipped rose that I’ve chosen.
Unique Gifts for Her from The Eternity Rose
It’s actually made from a genuine rose that’s been preserved to last a lifetime, dipped in 24 karat gold and presented in a stylish case just ready to display.
There were loads of choices actually, from silver and platinum dipped roses, to beautiful glazed ones in their own color with 24 karat gold trimming. But I think the gold is just perfect for my wife, and it really looks impressive.
Even better, every piece is made by hand, so I can truthfully say that I’ve chosen a gift that’s as unique and beautiful as she is.
I’m confident that this year she’s going to be pleasantly surprised – unlike the time I bought her that vacuum cleaner… but the less said about that the better.
