The problem is not that I'm picky, quite the contrary, I'm not choosy enough. I'm so excited that anyone thought enough to get me a gift, I can't say I've ever gotten anything I wasn't grateful to receive. Maybe that's what it boils down to. I'm one blessed person, and I know it. I may not drive the fanciest car or live in a castle of a home, but I have everything I could ever need, so when people ask what I want, I honestly struggle to think of anything.
That's why four years ago, I was actually surprised that my husband got it right without my even telling anyone the one thing I wanted but thought was too expensive to ask for. Not jewelry, not fur, not even spa treatments (although I wouldn't say no to the last one). No, after eleven years of marriage, he knew me well enough to know what I go crazy for and sprung for an e-reader.
I realize this is a fairly common gift now, and even at the time, e-readers were already growing in popularity, but the prices were still very high, and I was amazed he'd sprung for such an expensive gift. I finally understood how other women felt when they opened a little black box and saw the sparkle winking back at them, except my ultimate sparkly wasn't a diamond--it was a way to get instant reading gratification, anonymity, and portability. I was beyond happy and gushed about it to anyone who would listen.
Sometimes they get it right, and I have to thank my husband for my best Christmas gift ever.
