    I have a suggestion that I learned from observing one of my friends. I always thought $$$ amounts, and coming up with lots of cash to buy something really nice, like a Movado watch, or, a new bike, or some big ticket item. Anywho, I learned a really important lesson from one of my friends one year while shopping with her for her husbands birthday. I was so impressed! She went to Fannie Mae (best chocolatier in CHICAGO) and got him just a couple of his favorite truffles (only a few in a little baggie) – not like me, I’d be buying a pound of them for my husband, and who really needs a pound of truffles health wise anyway? I had never thought of just getting him a bit of everything that he likes. Nothing pricey, just SO thoughtful. Now, I’ll stop by Fannie Mae and get him a few of his favorite chocolates- thin mints, then go by the card outlet store and get him about 1/2 dozen different birthday cards (some funny, some romantic, etc.) and go out for dinner or make him a great dinner, etc. I just love doing it this way. I guess she changed my view on gift giving, it’s not about how much you spend, it’s about all of the thought you put into it. One year, I typed out 365 reasons why I love him so much, cut them out and put each one into a Hershey Kiss so he’d have a kiss a day. Some of my messages were very private and personal – needless to say the kids were not allowed to to go near them 😉 Also, a really nice letter just telling him how much he means to you and how much ya love him, etc. is kewl. Also, you could make a CD of his favorite songs, or your special songs. My husband had 3 Movado’s at one point and they just sat in a drawer. So, I’ve changed that way….. PS, I’m still JEALOUS “Don’t Hate” BAHAHAHA, about your beach vacation! You are so funny!
