Black and White and a Gift Dilemma

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully

It’s officially one week until Christmas, and I decided to brave the shopping crowds and winter slush yesterday for some quick Christmas shopping. I found gifts for grandparents, parents, and sisters…I even found the perfect set of chew toys for my parents’ dogs…but I am struggling to find the perfect gift for Darrin! Ah! He is so good at picking out gifts for people. I love date nights, so he’s gotten us tickets to musicals and plays that come to Minneapolis. He bought me a lovely zirconium necklace for our one year wedding anniversary, ordered and framed for my birthday the official posters for each Broadway show we’ve seen together {romantic, right?!}, surprised me numerous times with a romantic dinner and a movie night…he even picked out my beautiful wedding ring all by himself! He’s a gift giving genius!

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully

I know I shouldn’t be complaining about this…I’m darn blessed and don’t deserve him, that’s for sure. But my goodness, I wish I could come up with a better Christmas gift idea than wool socks! Don’t get me wrong, Darrin loves wool socks, but I’m trying to find something a bit more creative…and my time spent wandering the mall yesterday did not spark any of that much needed creativity. Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for “Operation Darrin’s Christmas Gift 2013.”

Hopefully your holiday shopping has been a bit more productive! 🙂

Have a great Wednesday!

    Does he have a good toiletry bag? It might sound silly, but I bought one for a boyfriend once and he loved it!
