Yesterday, Eric sent me the e-mail every girl dreams of getting.
I’m so excited to be in love at the holidays!!!!
I tried to downplay my excitement when I e-mailed him back.
(I love Sky Mall.)
Oh, you don’t like my list? Fine! I tried again….
He called me ridiculous. I told him I was kidding about everything but the headphones.
I’ll send him the real list this weekend.
Anyway, I didn’t ask him for a list because I am a really good gifter and am comfortable flying without a map. And anyway, guys are easy to shop for. Give me one occasion when cologne, sunglasses, ipods, digital cameras, DVDs, watches, magazine subscriptions, nice jeans, or blowies won’t suffice. Not possible! But I love Eric so much, I want to give him something really special. I think I’m going to choose one thing off that list…and then let him hit it in the shower.
(OK that’s a joke. He knows he has to wife me before I’d get my hair wet for him.)
Since this is my first Christmas with a serious and official Facebook boyfriend, I’m very curious to hear your thoughts on wish lists. Do you give your SO one? I mean, in all honesty, I know exactly what I want, but I also like to feel surprised on some level. I’m very curious how other people do this! Does your person ask? Do you ask for a list in return? How long is your list? Do you want everything on it, or is it just suggestions? And have you ever cried because you’ve gotten something horrible?
I know you all will have great insight into this, so please let it rip in the comments!
