More to Gush About

I enjoy the holiday season, the nice cool weather, when we have it, the yummy smelling candles and spending time with family.  But also because I really enjoy making/finding and wrapping gifts for my loved ones. I’d like to think I do a somewhat-good-job at the whole gift giving thing. Sometimes?

I try to anyway. However, there are times when I can’t seem to figure out exactly what to get and this is one of those times. Well, I have something but every time I look at it I get more and more doubtful. The gift I’m speaking about is for a special someone, yup- for he who is known as boyfriend. OK, that was a bit dramatic of me, but it’s still odd for me to even type out. His actual name is Matt and I adore him. He, of course, is great at the whole gift giving thing. He bought me the Cogsworth Funko Pop figurine! (Pictured above) It’s been one of those things I kept meaning to just order online but never got around to it. He just surprised me with it, a thank you for cat sitting his adorable kitties. And then he surprised me with a Pastry Pet that he got on a recent trip to Seattle. Meet Nilla the Mini Donut Cat, made by MarninSaylor. It’s so cute!!! These unexpected gifts make me smile, he makes me smile.  I hope to become as attuned with him and the things he likes as he is with me. I get excited whenever I learn something new about him so I don’t see being unsure about his gift as a bad thing…I just hope he likes it.

That’s all for now…more to gush about next time. I wish you a happy holiday, I’m looking forward to the new year and I hope you are too.

Thanks for reading.

    You guys are so cute together! I’m so happy to see you happy and I was pretty overjoyed that you finally got photos with him and you were willing to share them on your blog haha ❤️

    I think that in time you will come to notice your boyfriend’s quirks and the little things he likes, so you’ll be able to weave that into a gift. I find that paying attention to little things definitely helps. I’ve gotten Nick a few little surprises just by knowing and paying attention to what he likes. ? We had a really tiny discussion (like less than a minute!) about socks, and I knew that next time I got him a gift it would some funky dress socks haha. It was a good idea. But generally, men are hard to buy things for haha… I don’t blame you for struggling a bit. Some men are easily pleased and some aren’t! ?

    Hope you have a lovely holiday!

    @Georgie, Awww, ❤️❤️

    Yes, I’m constantly asking for photos now and planning out blog entries with it.
    Guys are hard to shop for, and Matt tends to buy himself the things he wants right off the bat. And some of the things he’s interested in have some specifics and I won’t know enough of those specifics….yet. But I hope the gift I picked out makes him happy.
    And socks are wonderful, and they make great gifts. I shouldn’t worry too much though, and just continue getting to know him. But his gift to me is a weekend trip to Austin so I’m now worried by the size of my gift. >.< Thanks for rooting for me! Happy holidays to you too!

    Aw, I love it when our boyfriends surprises us with something like that. You guys are totally adorable.

    I honestly can’t believe how far we all have come in life. Tristan and I will be celebrating our 4th year anniversary together on January 8th. I can’t believe how far we have come.

    Thanks so much!
    Congrats on the anniversary!

    Time just moves so fast now, I can’t believe it.

    I’m looking forward to the rest of 2017.

    Aww, this is a cute entry! I’m so glad that he makes you happy 😀 It’s funny how significant others can be hard to get gifts for. I’ve been with my husband for 11 years, and I still struggle sometimes! I hope he liked it though!

    @Cat, Thank you. 😀

    I feel like it’s hard because guys usually get the things they want themselves. I kept trying to figure out what I could get him and I switched between several different things. I landed on some custom MTG metal keychains. He liked them. But I’ve already given him 4 keychains or things to hang from somewhere. XD I really like keychains but that doesn’t mean other people need their favorite things on a keyring. But I’m happy he liked them.

    @Rae, He really is amazing. One of the most understanding and nicest human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know. Let alone actually get to spend time with.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Your blog is so freaking adorable!

    First of all, I really find your blog so really adorable and I am so thankful that I stumbled in!
    You are so right about that! I am having a hard time choosing a present for my other half as well! If it’s easy to buy some gifts for girls like us then to the boys it’s just another way around! Hahaha!

    Such a lovely post! Have a nice day babe and I hope you could visit my blog if you have time!
