Okay, so if I don’t tell someone (or, you know, type it out on the internet to a bunch of Bees), I’m going to lose my mind.
DH’s 31st birthday is coming up soon (11/2) and he thinks that I haven’t gotten him anything. I’ve told him that his present this year is saving money, and he’s okay with it.
But. It’s a lie.
I got him two things.
The first is GTA V, since he’s been going on and on about it for the past few months. He thinks he’s not getting it unless he buys it (and *fingers crossed* he won’t go out and get it for himself before I give him his presents)!
The second (and probably the one that will make him squeal) is a 4-book box set of LOTR. It’s a hardback 1977 edition in ‘new’ condition. It has all 4 books, Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, Return of the King, and The Hobbit. He’s been wanting the books for a while, so I decided to get the nicest set I could find (you know, that wasn’t $5k). Below is the actual picture of the book set I got him:
I’m unsure on what card to get him, though. Last year, his cards (got 2 by accident lol) correlated with his two gifts: As in, one card said “You used to be 29, then you took an arrow to the knee” and went with his copy of Skyrim and the other card said “I love you more than you love Xbox” that went with his headset and new controller.
I don’t know what kind of card to get this time. He likes wit, and definitely corny/funny over romantic. Neither of us are mushy people; we like things to make us laugh.
Any ideas on cards, or links to a card that would work with either of the two gifts I got him? (I’ve been searching Etsy but haven’t come up with anything yet). He’s dreading turning 31; it’s actually hitting him harder than when he turned 30 (poor guy; he doesn’t look a day over 25 though!), so I’m glad I was able to get him what he’s really wanted for a while.
Sorry that was long, ladies, but I was *this* close to revealing his gifts to him (NEVER tell me what you’ve gotten someone for christmas; I WILL ruin the surprise). LOL.
