When a guy says that after opening his birthday present, you've got to spread the word! To all the wives of hard-to-shop-for-husbands, here's a winner:
My husband flipped. I smiled. Thank you, Twelve South!
My husband loves the way it feels (soft and leathery); I adore the way it looks (like a real antique). I wouldn't even mind if he left this on the coffee table...or on the bedside...or gave it to me! Tee hee!
As with most clever techie things, this is a "Mac only" product, but don't despair, PC friends. There's another way to make your husband's day the next time you give him a gift:
Wrap your gift in simple brown kraft paper. Grab some colorful markers and write YOU ARE in large letters at the top. Follow it with a running list that tells him all the things he is to you. A few serious thoughts, a few playful ones, but don't forget to throw a little "Respect and Admire" somewhere in there!
P.S. The Lovelies contest was narrowed down to the Top Five in each category today, and thanks to YOU, I am #2 in the paper goods category! Little ol' me! Great big YOU! The contest coordinator made a point to say that she's especially enjoying the comments people are leaving for the lesser known shops. I may be small potatoes, but your comments make me feel huge! Thank you! Voting continues through Feb 28. Be sure to check out the other creative shops while you're there!
