Roses for My Birthday

I cannot remember when the last time hubby gave me flowers. While most men know that majority of women love receiving flowers, hubby is different. He is loving and romantic but he is not fond of giving flowers. I think I only received flowers from him once since we met 14 years ago. He likes it more to surprise me with the things that he thinks I love the most like overnight on a resort, short vacation or those things that I am dreaming to have.

What hubby does not know is, just like any other women, receiving flowers makes a positive difference in my day, roses in particular. Just a bunch or roses would crack a grin on my lips and would make me sing my favorite song the whole day. It short, it would make my day complete.

The flowers that each woman wants to receive depend on the woman herself. Some love daisies, some like tulips, but for me rose is the perfect flower that symbolizes love and affection and it does not matter if it is red, white, or pink. I find roses, soft, delicate and sweet. And now that my birthday is just around the corner, I would love to have a bouquet of roses from hubby. I would love it more if it will be delivered in a surprise.

So for men out there, if you want to make your girlfriend, wife or mother happy most especially on special occasions, send flowers to their homes or offices. It does not matter if it is expensive or not. The fact that you took the effort to send them flowers as reminder of your love is enough for them to giggle like a child. You can couple it with huggable stuffed toy or chocolate for a more dramatic surprise.

My Forty Wonderful Years

When a blogger friend tagged me to post seven things about me, many got curious on my answer in number one which was “I will begin my life on June this year”. My friends commented and asked what is it with June? To answer that question, I will be turning 40 this June and as they say “life begins at 40. It will mark the important milestones in my life so I deserve a great party with my loved ones and wonderful gifts. Perhaps a Black Diamond Jewelry from hubby. Lol!

Seriously, I am very thankful for the 40 wonderful years. I have met different people along the way and learned a lot from them. I may not be wealthy but I gained true friends and they are my treasure together with my loving family. With passing time and growing age, my responsibilities had grown yet I have this sense of freedom again.

Yes, I will be 40 but I do not feel like one. Well, aging is all in the mind. We are only as old as the person we feel and I feel like I am just half my age.

Promotional Shirts as Corporate Gifts

Time really flies so fast and in just a few months, it will be Christmas again. Yes, the nerve wrecking gift shopping will be here soon and for the big companies, it is a mind-twisting idea for the corporate gifts to be given away.

What could be the best corporate gifts? When choosing your corporate gifts, you can turn on different promotional items. Promotional items are not only used when holding a campaign but also to spice up different occasions. There are different new innovative and interesting promotional merchandise to choose from but the best sellers are those that can be useful to the persons receiving it like the promotional clothing and garments. Aprons, handkerchiefs, vest, jacket, etc., are very useful so it is practical to give them as gifts. They can also be customized, screen printed or embroidered.

But if I am to ask, I will stick with the same old item, the promotional shirts. Based on my personal experience, you can never go wrong with this one. My husband is receiving different promotional shirts from different companies every year and he is using it as his everyday shirt. It is like promoting your product almost everyday in different places. Of course the price of t-shirts varies from its design and style but if you will order in bulk, you can get it in a lot lower price.
