We filled 30 heart-shaped balloons and included a note inside each one and tied them together with a note that said “30 reasons why we love you.” My kids walked inside his work with them.
You can get a pack of heart-shaped ballloons for fairly cheap here, and then use a Balloon time tank to fill them all. Of all the birthday ideas for husband that are out there, this is a fave.
There was no way I could keep that dating fire burning as practicality invaded our lives. Something I haven’t wanted to admit for a long time, but is undeniable.
And even worse, it seemed that the harder I tried to be sentimental and lovey-dovey, the less it was reciprocated. Or, once we had a daughter, when I shared the responsibility of watching over her. Because as our marriage progressed, I found myself offering to help out around the house more and more. It took me longer than I care to admit to understand what was happening. Through giving, through doing things for my wife, the emotion that I had been so desperately seeking naturally came about. An emotion that, once had, somehow magically stays within a marriage forever. And I’m saddened to think about how much those messages bounced around in my head for so long.
What sort of gifts are you getting for your secretary or assistant this year? Why wasn’t I getting reciprocal lovey-doveyness when we were first married? From Disney movies to my favorite shows like “The Office” to practically every pop song released, love is constantly sold as an emotion we have before we’re married. And that’s why my wife just gave me that half-smile. And now that I’ve tried to change the way I look at love, the more I become shocked at the messages of love I had gotten when I was younger.“Why You’re Awesome” Birthday Gift For Husband I got this cute fill-in-the-blank birthday book for my husband and it was really fun to fill in all the blanks. Sticky Note Birthday Surprise This is a great birthday gift for husbands of all kind! I bought some sticky quotes with love notes already on them because I’m lazy like that…plus they had some cheesy ones that I knew his students would appreciate (he is a teacher so I covered his classroom and car).You can make it humorous, or you can make it more sentimental. I even left a pad of blank sticky notes on his car for his students to write on. This year for my husband’s birthday I’m planning on getting him a new wedding band.
