my husband and his early christmas gifts.

as we were walking in the freezing virginia cold this evening, i decided he should have his little christmas gifts early: 

this trapper hat + gloves + thermal underwear + long winter socks =

my warm husband who felt silly taking this photo for me, but obliged his wife (such a fun husband!)


is the guy in your life hard to shop for? mine is! i had told him to send me some gift ideas and then i get an email who's website headline is "C-3PO never looked this good... Or was this waterproof." I click on the link and it takes me to this:


hmmm... i did ask him what he wanted for Christmas! if the guy in your life is a star wars fan, how amazing of a girlfriend/wife would you be donning this swimsuit?

in all seriousness though, my husband truly is the hardest person to shop for. He never needs anything or wants anything like me. The warm outwear was seriously on his christmas wish list! ha but what fun is  opening that on christmas day? it's like when you were little and you'd get sweaters for christmas. So i was okay with just giving him these quote "christmas presents" when he took out our furry little dog babies tonight. 

and plus i was really excited about the hat! 

(p.s. check out danielle's guy's gift guide)

The hat is so warm, my ears are still hot and I've been inside for 20 minutes. It's like wearing Stella on my head!

Thank you for my early Christmas gifts, your love (and the hat) will keep me warm this winter!

Love you, wifey! Hope you like your Christmas presents!

BTW, you aren't all that easy to shop for either...

Love the hat! Alomost bought Miguelito the same hat but he has a big head -haha! so he has to try it on.
Te ves bien Max!!!

It's always hard to shop for your significant other : )
I never know what to get Humbe!

Love you xoxo

So cute! Brendan and I swapped one present today because I have been waiting for so long for the handbag he got me and I was about to explode with excitement haha.

Ha! He does look silly! But he's so cute doing that for you!! You got yourself a good husband. Mine it's hard to shop for also. He once told me never get me any clothes...ok...

My 4 yr old is a star wars fan! too young though!

haha! chris has sent me links to sexy stuff too sayinghe wanted it! how funny!

and, i also asked chris for one of those hats like you got chip. i guess great minds think alike. they had some cute lady hats at target last year, and i'm kicking myself for not getting one!

oh, and i just read chip's comment. you are totally easy to shop for. i found like a dozen things i wanted to get you.

xoxoxo

my guy is so difficult to shop for, whenever he wants something he just usually goes and gets it. i'm heading out to do all of my xmas shopping today (my island is SO out in the middle of nowhere that i'll spend 6 HOURS traveling today to get to and from the mall so its crucial i find everything in one shot... pressure much?)

April said...

That's an adorable hat!
At least your hubby isn't like my dad. He used to get mad at us for buying him things, because he wanted us to buy things for ourselves. It was really frustrating! So finally we quit buying him stuff... except for two cases of beer every year for Christmas. Oh, Daddy...

how cute is he in that hat!?! I think it was smart of you to give those gifts early, I am always telling Andy to bundle up so he doesn't get sick... He has pulled out the hat I made him last year!

Claudia said...

Micaela I showed my son the pictures of C3PO suit and he "WOOOOOOED" to it in capital letters...He said it was funny! Thank you for the Happy Mail!

Micaela said...

kary- i have the same problem as my little miguelito! my head is too big for them too ;) i'd prob have to get a guy's one, no kidding! LOL love you! check your facebook email! love you!

Megan, what a good guy! :) brownie points for Brendan and i'm dying to see the handbag!

Rhianne, INDEED we do!!! i was running so late to work this morning that my HUSBAND ;) the sweet boy he is mailed off your little something. He's the best! i'm excited for you to get it ;)

Claudia, LOL!!!! i was giggling when i read your comment at work. xo

Danielle, don't you believe your mistress knows you? ;) great minds do think alike! (even chip and chris! ha!) i laughed at your guy's guide post when you said something about the love coupons ;) YOU are easy to shop for! can't wait for our next date. xoxo!!!

holli, sometimes we work best under pressure right? i hope you did this time ;) island... i have wanderlust!

April- NO JOKE- one of the gifts i was thinking of getting max was a beer club-- where they send a case of different beers each month lol your daddy would have loved it!

Brittan, i wish i was crafty enough to make things... i think that makes it THAT much better. so darling!

Maddy said...

I had no idea what to get Matt this year so I kinda went the useful route too. Luckily he says those are his favorite kind of presents! I wish he would wear a trapper hat...

Amanda said...

That swimsuit is too funny. My husband is the same way--always buys things himself and I can never find the right thing.
