Like I mentioned yesterday, I am teaming up with Holly from Bits of Everything to bring you a week of gift ideas. Today’s theme is Gifts for Guys.
Trying to decide on a gift for my husband is next to impossible sometimes. He likes to hunt, but he’s picky about what he gets. Forget trying to surprise him with anything. I have managed to surprise him a couple of times, but it isn’t often. I usually like to get him one big gift and then something with meaning to go along with it. I decided that I am going to show you what I gave him two years ago for Christmas. I originally posted this in 2011, but figured it could use a refresher. I call this “The 12 Dates After Christmas”.
My sister and I made these together. I came up with the design and she came up with the poems that went on each card. The basic idea behind them was to have a date idea for every month so that he wouldn’t have to worry about figuring out a date idea. My husband loved this idea because it takes all the pressure off of him to come up with something!
Let’s talk about the fact that he still has all of the cards. How cute is that? He even still had them tied nicely in a bow. I dug them out to take new pictures for this post and it made me smile that he still had them.
If you want to learn more details about how I made the cards, you can go back to the original 12 Dates After Christmas post and see the full story. Oh, and one more thing. You can never go wrong with getting your husband the Duck Dynasty dvds. If you are stuck on what to get him. Get him that. He will be “happy, happy, happy” 🙂
