“You are such a killjoy,” my husband sighs, closings his web browser. “You are the WORST person to shop for.”
What can I say? It’s true. Because I’m not a hearts and flowers kind of gal; romantic gestures are often lost on me, and even the most thoughtful gifts go over my head. I am a utilitarian, dammit, and I want a gift of USE.
I’ve explained this to my husband too many times to count. It all started back in 2005, when we celebrated our first Christmas together. My husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, gifted me with gourmet cooking lessons. I knew he had probably spent an arm and a leg on the thoughtful present, but all I could think of was the fact that the lessons would be over, and I’d have nothing tangible to show for it. So, I promptly exchanged the voucher for a cookware set from the brand’s private label, which we use to this day.
See? Functional. Timeless. Utilitarian. I am ALL about practical gifts.
So this Mother’s Day, I don’t expect a box of chocolates or a vase of flowers. Because frankly, my husband knows better – and he knows to teach the boys that mommy is not into the sentimental stuff. But what do I want? It’s simple.
I want a practical gift that gives me peace of mind when I’m out and about. I want to be offered exclusive discounts on my favourite dining and entertainment destinations all year round. I want to save money and be rewarded at the stores I shop at most – because F is for flowers, but it is also for Ferragamo. And Ferregamo clutches do not wilt.
Now what if I told you I could have all three? It’s true – it’s part and parcel with a CAA Membership.
