My Valentine's Gifts...

My boyfriend is a great gift giver. He knows me well and is good about getting me things I wouldn't buy for myself but that I want. Which is a lot of things, because I'm cheap frugal.

One such item is a satellite radio. It's not something I had on my to buy list, but I do love that the bf has one in his car. He got me a simple one to use in my car and borrowed my spare key the night  before V-Day to set it up as a surprise for when I got in to drive to work. He also left me some potted tulips, which are on my dining room table. He's paying for the first five months of service for me and then I'll decide if I'm going to continue. He said you can get really good deals, so while it's not something I would have sought out, I'll probably keep it up. It was a fun Valentine's surprise in the morning.

That night, I made dinner and gave him his gifts (an Arrested Development t-shirt, a photo book I made him on Snapfish, and a package of undershirts) and he gave me my other gift.  A watch from Citizen! Here are the things I love about it: the pink face; the fact that it runs on light and doesn't require a battery; it's stainless steel, a little heavy, but still feminine.

He was about as excited about his undershirts as I was about the watch...guys are so easy.

Anyway, kudos to him, especially since he thinks Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday. But as he put it, "Don't get me wrong, I like buying you things." <3


  1. Wow, what a cute watch. And I know nothing about satellite radio so I will look forward to hearing more about it. Good job.

  2. Wot that's so cute. I love thoughtful gifts like the satellite radio - it shows that he is really looking out for you and is not just picking something up from a store. I think you've got yourself a keeper :-)

  3. 1) such a cute watch
    2) keep that boy, he's so thoughful!
