0 Buying a gift for someone special?

I love gifts. I love the challenge of figuring out how to fit in whatever I have received, into my home somehow. And it's really great to see what's under the wrapper - it gives me a perception of how the giver views me ;)

My birthday is just two weeks after Christmas. So yeah, it's been a couple of exciting weeks. Time to take a breather to talk about my bf - who's just so sweet.

"Wow, he must have gotten you something really nice and romantic" ...ahh..so you think. But year in and year out, it's just amusing to see him panic as the Birthday date draws near. Sometimes he just fails miserably and it's going to be something belated or nothing at all.

Note that I'm not fussy about not getting anything at all - he just insisted that it was a must-thing for him to do. Who am I to stop this gallant notion?

This year, I decided to give him a break...or so I thought....

I gave him a subtle hint....mm..ok, maybe not so subtle but still he fell for it and thought he was the genius.

I had the plan in motion a couple of months before - whenever we pass a shop with this cute doll, I would point out to him how I'd love to have it but would always delay buying it, saying that I didn't have the time yet. I did this until December ;) Wuhahaha..it worked! ..Well..not exactly...

I didn't expect it to come in for Christmas...kakaka ;p and so, when my Birthday arrived - it was the same old story...he panicked, picked me up late from work, full of apologies and those pity puppy eyes. Now, who could resist not forgiving someone who does that?

Well....at least I got what I wanted..mm...now, to convince him that I need another one, but with a different design ;)
