I know some of you ladies are wondering what I came up with for my boyfriend's birthday. Well, ta-da! Here ya go:
I got him a gift basket filled with some goodies I thought he'd like:
-- Value Pack of Hanes White T-shirts (I always steal them from him because I like to sleep in them!)
-- Sharpies (He likes to carry them around wherever he goes.)
-- Pack of Car Towels for Drying & Detailing (He's a car guy & loves to keep his car clean. Last time I helped him wash his car I noticed he didn't have anything to dry with except old t-shirts!)
-- Super Street Car Magazine (Like I said, he's a car guy!)
-- Cycle World Magazine (He really wants a motorcycle & is getting his motorcycle license next weekend.)
-- Bottle of Arizona Blueberry White Tea (I introduced this to him last year & it's been his favorite since then.)
I loved putting this together for him. It might not be much, but like I said, I had a small budget & knew that there was really nothing that he wanted. I do plan on cooking him a nice dinner sometime this week, I just haven't had the chance since the last couple days have been super busy.
Sadly, I feel like I didn't get a great response from him for this gift. My friends loved the idea & thought what I got him was great, but some of the things he said when I gave it to him kind of got me down.
Regarding the Sharpies he said, "Wow, I have so many of these already." Well, I know! But, none from me! Sheesh.
Regarding the Car Towels he said, "Great, and I don't even have a car." (He's currently saving up to buy a new car because he sold his last year. He's been driving his dad's car for now, but he STILL likes to keep it clean. I thought it was sweet.)
Regarding the Arizona Blueberry White Tea he said, "You got the small one!" (Apparently 7-11 sells them in two sizes & I got the small one. Bad me.)
I might be reading too much into his comments, but I guess you had to be there. This is just how he is; he's so hard to please! Either soup isn't hot enough or the music isn't loud enough. He can be rather picky & that gets to me sometimes. There's nothing wrong with constructive critcism, but to criticize a gift I got him? Really, there's no need for that. I already felt bad for not being to spend more on him.
Anyways, I'm just venting. I'm PMS'ing right now so everything is getting to me. Don't start thinking my boyfriend is an ass because he is far from it! Trust me, I don't take crap from anyone, so I wouldn't be with him if he didn't treat me right.
Despite my poopiness, here's a couple pics of the moment I gave him his gift. He's all smiles which is great. He did love the car mag & started reading it right away. At least I got one thing right!
