Option 1, because like you said, it has the least amount of variables, and then she could drive the both of you out to dinner or something! But realistically, I don’t think there’s a way to fail gifting a convertible of all things, your wife is one lucky lady!

hereformybaybee :  I like option 1 the best- but agree with PP that you really can’t go wrong at all.

I like option 1 the best too. Surprises don’t have to be public to be special. I think it will be a more special moment for you as a couple.

 hereformybaybee :  For #2.. how would you get her the keys?

I’d go for 1 or 3.  That way you’re there and can tell her that yes, this is indeed her car.  Otherwise she may spend a couple hours on the phone with the insurance letting the know her old car was stolen.. lol.

Plus this way you get to see her expression. 🙂

You’re a very sweet man, I’m sure she’ll be blown away.

I would only do #2 if you can be there. Like, if it were me & my car was gone, I would panicking & the last thing I would think is that my husband left me a new convertible instead haha.

Option 1. I don’t like #3 because it’s too public and showy for my taste. # 2 seems like it would just be confusing, and from a safety aspect, I wouldn’t want to draw attention to your wife when she is alone in a parking garage.

1 is great. Private and sweet. If she loves surprises I would go for 2.

Happy birthday to her!

hereformybaybee :  for option one, you could get her to pick you up and tell her “I have a surprise for you, can I give you directions?”

that way you can control the surprise and show her her new garage 🙂 (with car?)
