In more recent years, the amount of effort I put into his gifts has slowly declined. For his birthday, I told him I'd buy him a recliner. The gift required no creativity or effort, and we STILL don't have a recliner for him ... his birthday was in March.
I decided that I needed to get back to my cheesy, flirty gifts. I started with a little gift for the 4th of July.
Blake is a fan of explosives; no surprise to anyone who knows him. I picked up a few fireworks from the grocery store parking lot last night and attached a tag that reads, "Life with you is a blast."
They are not the "good" fireworks he goes across the state line to purchase, but he was excited about them nevertheless.
I once made a similar gift for my friend Evan. For her version, I swapped out the fireworks for candy.
Happy 4th of July!!!!!!
