Last-Minute Gift Idea

bubble-bathAfter 10 years of marriage, I guess I know my wife’s passions and interests pretty well. I routinely use this knowledge to come up with unique gift ideas every time a holiday rolls around. For instance, I took her for a romantic weekend in the California wine country for our last anniversary. There’s no way I would have thought to book the trip if I didn’t remember her intense interest in wineries.

For whatever reason, her birthday threw me for a bit of a loop this year. It wasn’t until the last moment that I finally stumbled upon a bath gift basket online. In the past I’ve been annoyed at how much time my wife spends in the tub, luxuriating in the soapy warmth of a bubble bath. But that information came in especially handy when I needed it most. She was thrilled to receive a basket loaded with balms, gels and pleasing fragrances.
