The Perfect Gift...

...thats the aim when we go buying presents, frequently things get in the way though, price, avalibility and probably the worst mistake, misinterpretation, & getting the wrong one. I find the last ones the worst as I'd get soooooooo excited at the thought of their face when they see it & then the disappointment of their disappointment.
But sometimes, just sometimes, with a lot of listening & a bit of luck that perfect gift is achievable, & I think we might have one of those this year, or maybe even 2 of them :-O Of course I cant say who or what just incase they read this, though I dont think they do.

I've had a few gifts over the years that were perfect for me, but probably the most important & memorable one was on Christmas Day 2005

We were going to Christmas dinner at Ryans parents, he'd already told me that my Christmas present was there, a tv for my craft room, as it was too heavy for him to carry home. It sounded a bit suss to me as his parents bring the kids presents over in the car on Christmas eve anyway, but I went along with it.

We arrived, settled down & Ry told me to close my eyes & hold my hands out. I heard he & his Mom whispering & I was told to open my eyes. I looked round, his Mom was in tears & so was his sister. There in front of me was Ryan on bended knee holding out a ring in a box asking me to Marry him.


  1. Awww - how wonderful K - you have a sweet sweet man there!

  2. Aw! Goosebumps! Goosebumps!

    Whoever has to beat that gift has a way to go :)

    I know what you mean about being so excited about finding a perfect gift only to have that disappointment at getting it soooo wrong.

  3. That's an amazing present - how wonderful - a lovely happy memory for this time of year

    Must hugs

  4. Aww! And what a lovely way you were dressed when you got your ring too. Great that you had the moment captured on film to always remember it. A perfect "Perfect Gift". x

  5. Truly the perfect gift..and how romantic!!! And wonderful that you have it on film too.
    Just hoping that my gifts this year are "the right ones".
