S#*t. I am in serious gift stress overload right now.
We’re wrapping everything up for the year here in the studio (so we’re working at full speed all day!), there are holiday events every night, and then I fly out this weekend to Sydney !!! Ok, so too many things to be excited, grateful, happy about… But. You see, I’m trying to work out the perfect gift for my guy.
First, I have to say it feels like he’s the man who has everything (aside from that jet boat that seems a little out of my price range…). Second, I made it worse for myself.
I made a complete bluff and said to him, out of nowhere, “I have the perfect gift for you!” At the time, I really did think it was the best thing, but now it’s too late to organize and arghhhh!!! There are a million things that could go wrong. They could ask me to empty my suitcase at the airport, and then voila, he sees it. I could order it online and it never arrives. I started to freak out so much, I declared to everyone in the studio that I was getting him a pinky ring!! Yes, an AMAZING idea. For someone who (a) wears jewelry, and (b) you can see being excited about a pinky ring. He’s neither of those.
And then Steven gave me some great ideas, but then I was all like, “How the hell am I going to pack a Bonsai plant in a bag to Sydney?!! And then bring it back?” (Maybe I can just get one and leave it here and then get him something small as well to give him on Christmas day..? Oh ah eesh. I don’t know!!!)
So, please. I need your help. And I need your suggestions to be something I could easily hide from someone I live with and that will also fit into a suitcase that is bound to be overweight anyway. Easy, right?
p.s. I really hope he’s not reading this and finds out I was completely bluffing, haha…
