I just realized that in 4 days it is my husband’s birthday! It is too late to order anything from the states to be here in time as mail can take anywhere from 5 days to 3+ weeks to get mail here through our military american postal system. So ordering anything from the states is out! Yes, I know I can purchase something here locally in Poland but if he wants something he usually buys it himself. Why can’t men be like us women if you got us a spa gift certificate and/or jewelry you cannot go wrong!!
So I have been trying to figure out something unique to give him (after being married 20 years I am running out of ideas)!
Well I think I finally found something that is unique and will be here in time!!
I found this great website called Because I Tried It. All I had to do was email her Jim’s name and birthday and within a couple of hours I had this PDF file emailed to me so that I could print out right here at my house. Now the one picture here is not my husband’s as he is just a WEE BIT older than that but I cannot post his as it would ruin the surprise for him (yes, he reads my blog too). I had some resume paper lying around so I printed it on that and then I framed it. Did you know that my husband shares the same birthday as George Lucas, Bobby Darin(who want’s to go sailing?) and Thomas Gainsborough! Not only that, milk was 71 US cents and 28 US cents was the price of a loaf of bread. Also in 1971 East Pakistan became Bangladesh! These are just a few the facts that I learned about my husband birthday as there are many more but I don’t want to give them all away in case he is reading the post!
Now the BEST part of Because I Tried It, for every one of these that is ordered 100% of the proceeds goes towards helping children in need. You can get one of these yourself for just $2.00 emailed right to your inbox! They also can also be personalize more, print and frame it too for additional fees. They also offer other great personalized printable products for almost every occasion like Easter, Christmas, name blessing, Tooth Fairy, This Day in History and much more so go check them out.
