As I said in my previous post, I had a suprise waiting for my husband when he got home. I want to share it, because I had fun with it. It’s a cheap, yet thoughtful gift and when you have a low budget, stuff like this works!
Now, these were the clue cards that I left around the house for him. I just cut hearts out of white cardstock, lined the outside edge with red marker and cut a small pink heart to mark the order so he would know he found the correct one. Each clue (somewhat) rhymed. I had fun with it.
Homemade chocolate covered strawberries! Am I the best wife ever or what? Haha. I had never made these before, but it actually was easier than I thought. A lot messier than I had imagined, but very easy to make! The strawberries I got at the store were HUGE. For the container, it was $2.86 and the melting chocolate bars were each about $2 (milk and white chocolate). So I spent a total of $8 on his gift. I already had the red sprinkles at home and just added those as some extra decoration.
He said the entire time he was doing the scavenger hunt, he had a smile on his face. I guess my mission was accomplished then. I’m glad it all went over as smoothly as planned.
I can’t say I’m the only thoughtful gift giver of the relationship though. I woke up yesterday morning (he had already left for work) and found this in the dining room:
The Lord has truly blessed me.
