I have a matter I need advice on 🙂
It will be my BF’s birthday soon and I am planning on getting him really cool cufflinks. I know he’ll just love them, because the design with the open clockwork.
I was initially planning on getting the silver ones, because I think that those suit him best.
But I’ve found an offer for half the price, which is really convenient because I can’t spend a lot of money at the moment. The problem is… the discounted ones are rose golden. NOT my fav color for a guy.
I’m really hesitant whether he’ll like the color, but I actually can’t afford the other ones.
What should I do? Just get them? Should I consult him whether he would like the color or not? I don’t want to give away what I’m getting him, I want it to be a big surprise, so I’d rather not consult him. My mom and sister thinks he’ll love it regardless the color.
What do you think? Would you like this color for a guy? They are cufflinks after all, so there must be guys who like it. And what do you think about consulting him? It’s better to keep it a secret right, otherwise he might guess..

@sfp: Keep shopping for cheaper silver ones. Unless you know for sure your guy would be comfortable wearing what is essentially pink toned jewelry, I wouldn’t take the chance. I don’t know how silver would cost more than rose gold though?

@beachbride1216: they’re cheaper because I can get them from a special sale but they only have this color available. So that kinda sucks, because I really love the design, just unsure about the color but at the same time don’t wanna ask him upfront. Hence my dilemma 😉

I ended up showing them to him after all, and he chose the darker ones. I’m glad I asked him! Too bad the surprise is ruined, but I’d rather get him something he really likes than take a wild guess (and wrong one apparently, see I was hesitant for a good reason).
