…Because my b-day is coming and FH consulted with me because I’m kinda weird to shop for (There’s not a lot of stuff I want in advance, most of my desires are impulsive, as bad as that sounds.)
I AM SO EXCITED FOR THESE.
Unfortuately the shipping to Korea was insanely pricey so I have to wait until we visit home later in the summer to actually wear them. We agreed it wasn’t worth the extra $40 when we’re visiting home super soon and I can pick them up then instead. But I’m SOOO excited, they’re basically my dream shoe. I’ve been wanting to rock the heel-less thing, the star is adorable, and light blue is my favorite attire/accessory color.
I am literally already planning outfits around these in my head. <3
So without further babbling… brag about amazing gifts you’ve gotten from your SO! Bonus for pics.

My FI gives some of the most thoughtful gifts. I LOVE it. For our last anniversary, he made me this:
I was SO impressed! Apparently he spent hours trying to find the perfect frame and paper color for inside the glass! He wanted to match my house, but also have it be simple enough to match our future homes together (awwww). The best part of the present? Every time he comes to see me, he changes the ‘reason’! It’s the gift that keeps on giving.. 🙂
What makes him a great gift giver (to me) is the thought behind the present. I had surgery last week and have been in bed since. A few days ago, he brought me a giant stack of wedding magazines and a pink sock monkey. (Waaay back before we even started dating (I was 15, he was 16), he had surgery and I brought him a care package with chocolates, cupcakes, and a sock monkey, which he still has..So he remembered and this was “my” get well monkey!)

@AllieANT: That is so lovely, what a nice guy.
I have received some stunning jewellery and big ticket items but it’s the small things that really touch my heart like flowers after getting home from hospital or small little trinkets that has made him think of me. He recently spent hours walking around Beijing (on a study tour) trying to find a Sephora store because he knew how much I wanted a certain eye cream.

Our first Christmas together – we’d been going out about two and a half months at that point but were very serious – FH got me this beautiful heart pendant. It was extra special because I was heading home to NZ without him for two weeks and we knew we were really going to miss spending our first Christmas day together. As cheesy as it sounds, I loved being able to wear his heart round my neck! (neither of us had been in a relationship before, and I was so proud to go back home with something that truly showed how much he cared). Even nearly a year and half later I still wear it almost every day.
Pictured here with my engagement ring, together these are my most precious symbols of our relationship.
