What do you buy for a man who has everything?
It’s July and another anniversary is here. Every year I have some trouble deciding what to buy for the man I married some years ago. Normally buying gifts is never an issue for me – I love spending money on my loved ones and friends, and I am constantly on the look out for possible gifts whenever I go shopping, which is, on a weekly basis.
But buying gifts for John is hard. I’ve written about it before and here I repeat: this man has some rare qualities, one of which is that he does not care for material gains, especially gifts. If he likes something, he buys it himself. If he does not like something, even if it costs a fortune, he will either refuse taking it or giving it to someone who happens to be standing by. Many of his colleagues have witnessed this, and no exception for me. So What shall I give him to mark this special occasion?
Apparently according to tradition, each year you can get your partner different things on the anniversary. This year, depending on whether I am traditional or modern, it’s crystal or watches. There you go, you now know exactly how many years I have married this man.
No watches, John made it clear. Crystals? Possibly.
Failing that, we can always go out for a nice Italian meal, or Chinese :-).
Then in three months time, it will be his birthday. Again, what do you buy for a man who thinks he has everything and expects nothing from his wife? Perhaps smiles that I am always prepared to give :-).
Are you ever in a dilemma as to what gifts to buy for someone special? Any suggestions?
