I'm married to a corker. Really am. He's my best mate, kindest person I ever did have the pleasure to meet and I absolutely adore him. He's a bloody wonderful father to our 5 DCs and a fanflippintastic role model of what a human should be.
He spent last night clearing up my DM's bathroom and changing her bed as she was taken by ambulance to hospital due to a very nasty virus.
I don't want to come across as a smug twat, I had a shite first marriage before I met him. Money's tight but I'd like to do something special to show my appreciation and love for him this Christmas. Any ideas what I can do to give him a glimpse of my singing heart?
*disclaimer: I have had about 3 hours sleep and am on pretty strong post op painkillers so am being a soppy bastard 😄
or cook him his favourite meal for when he gets home with lots of candles to make it romantic, his favourite beer/wine and leave some home-made vouchers on his place setting? Have to say one of my fave things is sometimes i come home after s**t day and my DP leaves a note at the bottom of the stairs telling me to meet him in the bath! hes then usually lit candles, filled the bath with bubbles and poured me a glass of wine and we have a lovely soak together and chat and it makes me forget the day. Probably sounds ridiculously soppy but its a small and simple gesture that means alot to me
Tbh, there is no gift that would mean more to me than my boyfriend sitting me down and telling me everything you have just said. I'm not knocking the gift but making time to really tell me that I'm appreciated and loved would mean more than anything else.
Lovely ideas. Thank you Think I'll write him a letter and make him a surprise dinner. DH is, as I type, rocking a teething toddler to sleep in a sling whilst I stuff my face with Ben and Jerry's in the kitchen. Think I might add a quick fumble to my list of appreciative gifts for him!
