What kind of gift giver are you to your partner? Do you get stuff they need and asked for specifically, or something you think they’d want? I try to be thoughtful and personal, but sometimes things just flop. Jared is always good at going over the top and being really creative in gift giving. One year early on in our marriage when I was getting really into photography, he bought me a whole darkroom setup and we attempted to convert our tiny second bedroom/laundry room in Hoboken into a working darkroom. It actually proved a bit more difficult than we thought, but it was so sweet! Another year he surprised me on Valentines Day with a beautiful painting above our mantle by my brother in law Paul Ferney. It was so sweet and totally unexpected since we aren’t big gift givers on Valentines Day in general.
So…today Jared is making a little video appearance on the blog talking about the best and worst gifts I’ve given him. I figured you always hear my opinions on stuff, it would be fun to hear his side of things. Enjoy!
