That whole “better with age” thing is so true.
Unfortunately, I don’t get to spend this day with him, for the second year in a row. This meant that I had to find a way to give something to the ultimate non-materialist. He hates receiving gifts, and I of course love giving them.
Etsy came through for me as always, where I found a fun variety of bar soaps (get the mint chocolate from seller Daisycakes Soap) and one of the cutest collections of cards that I have ever seen (from seller smackofjellyfish). He likes the “squeaky clean” feeling that bar soap leaves him with, and I thought it might be fun for him to venture away from the blue Zest he has been depending on for so long. I left him one note for each day, and told him not to open the package full of soaps until today.
He’ll love the notes, and although he will appreciate the gesture I’ll probably end up using up all of the soaps. Men are always seem to be really hard to buy for. Has anyone else found the secret to giving gifts to someone who consistently claims he has no desire to receive them?
