  4. I thank u guys for caring about relationships enough to teach us what love is. It’s the simple things that make u so happy. Thank u

  5. These all look like really great ideas. I love that most of them have to do with food. My husband thinks the best present to receive is food. His birthday is coming up and I’m not sure what to get him. He would be satisfied with anything, but that makes finding him a gift even harder. I may end up getting him a bunch of treats and then finding him a real gift later.

  6. This is an awesome collection!!!! I’m agreeing with Julie, this is going to make gift giving easier! xox

  7. Great round-up of gifts!! It can be SO HARD sometimes to think of something fun to give my husband that he will really like. There are tons of great ideas in here for me to choose from- thanks!!
