Today is my husband’s 27th birthday. We didn’t plan anything grand for the day as we already had our birthday celebration last March 4 and 5 with our immediate relatives. And because we have to save up for something bigger (aside from the upcoming hospitalization bills we have to pay for my delivery on May 2017) we just bought a pizza, went to his parents’ house (my in-laws) and enjoyed each other’s company instead of going out.
I know I have mentioned that we’re extra tight on our budget nowadays but I can’t help but surprise my husband with a simple gift. I love surprises so I love surprising other people, too!
For my husband’s 27th, I thought of giving him a new watch. It was around 3 years ago when he surprised me with a watch as his gift for my birthday. It’s a couple wrist watch to be exact that he bought from Tomato Time.
Well, here’s a side story. When he gave me that gift, I thought it was a watch from Timex! Kasi letter T yung logo! With all enthusiasm and wide smile, I blurted “WOW! Timex!” and he said “hindi ah. Grabe s’ya. Tomato Time yan!” Hahahaha! That was a super funny moment because I really thought it was a Timex watch. Lol!
Anyway, both our watches run out of battery last year and we had no wrist watch since then. We tried to bring it to repair shops for battery replacement but they’re having a hard time opening the stainless steel lid. And we seldom find a mall with a Tomato Time shop or boutique at it, so we just kept it in our cabinet at home.
So when I was still thinking of a gift for my husband on his birthday, I saw an ad on Facebook about LoveHopeFaith Group. I’ve actually heard about them since last year. LoveHopeFaith Group is a gift shop which sells stylish wrist watches and t-shirts for an affordable price. Their watches are priced at 250.00 Php where 50% of the net proceeds from every purchase will be donated to the medication of a cancer patient. So every purchase makes you a Life Saver.
I didn’t give it a second thought since it will be for a great cause! I purchased 4 wrist watches to avail of the free shipping fee. Funny, though, it was the husband whom I asked to deposit the payment through BDO since the bank is just at his office building’s ground floor. He even asked me what was that for and I just said it was for a blog collaboration. Good thing, he didn’t ask any more information though I have a hunch that he’s already suspecting that I am up to something again since his birthday is coming.
I placed my order just last March 8 and the package arrived on our doorsteps on March 13. The transaction was pretty smooth and I was even expecting the package to arrive by end of the week based on what they said after I’ve sent them the copy of the deposit slip.
That same day, I gave him the wrist watch and told him it was my birthday gift for him. It was a delightful moment and he is super happy with my gift.
You know, my husband’s just a simple man so it’s not hard to make him happy because he appreciates small things. I’m glad I married a man with a grateful and joyous heart. 🙂
Anyway, to my dear husband – happy birthday, Mahl! You are now a Life Saver at 27! I love you and may you always stay humble, joyous and humorous! God bless you!
