January 21, 2011

When birthdays roll around, some husbands buy their wives flowers, or jewelry, or perfume. 

Mine bought me this:

    My grandmother sent us 10lbs of raw peanuts. I am working my way through them! I love foodie gifts! They really are the best…who needs flowers when you get good stuff for your tummy! Enjoy!

    I’ve always thought Ryan is a catch. This just confirms it.

    I get salsa from texas and random gifts like that too! =) I’m planning on getting the hubs a case of UTZ chips b/c he misses them so flipping much.

    GREAT gift! Enjoy your weekend love! =) and your kombucha!

      We had never even heard of Utz before we moved to PA!

    I love Ryan for that too. It’s awesome.

    I’m trying to think of unconventional gift, but none come to mind. Although my brother got me fake poop once. I kid you not.

    That is just awesome!

    My parents always buy me a Chick Fil A calendar for Christmas. I dont even have to ask anymore and I always look forward to it!

    For our anniversary last year my boyfriend bought me a case of various wines. That and a shower radio to um use in the car since the actual radio was broken.

    My sister got me a pineapple and a mango…to go with my new pineapple corer and mango pitter. I loved it! 🙂

    I’ve gotten a crinkle cutter and a spiralizer and they were the best presents ever!

  15. January 21, 2011 11:46 pm

    I got a DNA test from my parents once to see if my sister and I were identical or not 🙂

    Ooooh great gift!!!

    I once got a t shirt that says ” I ❤ Bob Saget" on the front……. My friend thought it was funny….. I guess it is?

    Ha, great bday gift! Mine got me a new camera and kitchen gadgets for Christmas.

    Anna, Happy Birthday! I won’t say belated because I think birthdays should be celebrated for an entire month. Mine was January 12 and I just had my third party today with one (or more if I can arrange it) more to go. Go for it–cake, good food and presents.

    Best,
    Bonnie

      Thank you! Happy Birthday month to you, too! 🙂

  19. January 22, 2011 12:28 pm

    Happy birthday to you!! Mine is next Sunday 🙂

    For Christmas Nick got me a new shower head. That’s definitely non-traditional!! haha, my old one was wacky and the pressure was awful, so even though the gift was non-traditional, I LOVED it! He got me other great stuff, but still…a shower head?! hehe

  20. January 22, 2011 1:58 pm

    Ooooh, that’s an awesome gift! I want that.

    The most non-traditional gift I got was having someone pay off my car for me…that was fab 🙂

  21. January 22, 2011 2:21 pm

    That’s awesome!

    Jason got me P90X for my last birthday. I think he felt bad getting me an exercise dvd but I really wanted it.

    • January 22, 2011 2:36 pm

      He shouldn’t feel bad– that’s an AWESOME gift!!!

  22. January 22, 2011 4:45 pm

    i like meaningful gifts and gifts that are on my list of things I WANT!!! 🙂 Great gift!!!
