My husband is pretty good with his gifts…two years ago he got me a sewing machine I’d been eyeing (that I use all the time), last year he got me a pair of beautiful gold hoops, and this year he got me a Canon Rebel DSLR camera so we could take good photos of McBebe (once he or she arrives). 

The worst was a “Killer clown bobble-head” figurine from my father when I was 18 or 19. He knows how much I dislike clowns…

New car stereo from my husband this year! I was jumping up and down lol, so happy. He took my car to get it installed while I was in the shower/getting dressed. He’s not usually a tricky guy but he surprised me REALLY well with that one!

Worst ever would be…hmm. I can’t really think of any down right horrible ones so that’s good. I always hated getting clothes as gifts when I was little though. Like why on earth would someone get a 7 year old sweaters for a bday instead of toys? Just didnt understand it.

@pinkshoes:  Oooo pretty!


Hmmm, best birthday gift… I don’t know.  An upperclassman gave me a piece of cheesecake when I was a freshman in college.  That was a pretty fantastic gift! Haha!

We’re pretty low key about birthdays.  We usually do cake/pie and/or go out for dinner.  Which is great for me!

I think jewlery is always good. I was going to suggest a piece of jewlery that you could wear for your wedding, like maybe some pearl earrings to match the necklace… or like you said a necklace that you could wear every day. Massages or a gift card to your fave store are also great options too.

But the best gift I received…hmm, lol I guess I never really got anything real big. I’m blessed to be carrying a baby this year for my birthday so I’ll go with that:)

Favorite all-time presents:

  • Blue-topaz and diamond accent (diamond chips really) pendant in the shape of a key (wayyy before keys became popular). Pendants make great every-day necklaces
  • Gift sets from LUSH.  Seriously.  The sales people there are super helpful.  Everyone knows I love their Flying Fox stuff and am a shower person, not a bath person, so when they tells the sales staff that, they pick out awesome stuff.
  • Diamond Candles!  A ring in every candle, plus the candles are soy, smell wonderful, and are as big as yankee candles
  • Couples massage. Aww yeah.  He got his fully body done, I got my back done.
  • Edible Arrangement. Mmmmm…
  • A trip to a nail salon! What a wonderful gift that will be.. haven’t done this yet, but I really wanna go with FI and get my nails done and have him get a no-polish pedicure.  Sand them corns, file them nails, etc.
  • A big bottle of my favorite liqueur and my favorite mixer with it

Well, my FI (boyfriend at the time) gave me my favorite LV purse a few years back- that was one to remember!!! However, he just gave me UF Football Season Tickets (I am a die hard fan) and this is far and away the best birthday gift EVER!!!!

I think jewelry, handbags, or something technology-oriented (for example: an ipod nano to take to the gym) are always pretty safe bets!!
