Today is my dear husband's 27th birthday. I kind of... well, haven't gotten him anything. What I ORIGINALLY wanted to get him was a CC holster; I decided against it at the last minute, though, because I know holsters can be a pretty personal preference kinda deal, and didn't want to get him something he ended up hating. I'm kind of thinking I'm just going to tell him to pick whatever one he wants out, and we'll order it.

Nothing else gift-wise really spoke to me, and I don't like buying him shit just for the sake of buying it, because he doesn't like having a lot of random crap laying around. (Yes, I could have gotten more ammo or something, but we pretty much buy it whenever we need it, so it's not exactly a special occasion kind of gift.)

That said, I'm thinking I'm going to run down to our local gun shop later and pick him up a new hunting knife, which we need anyway and is a nice birthday-ish kind of gift. It's kind of an after-thought, though, so I feel guilty. I have issues with compulsory gift-giving events - too much fucking pressure!

Anyway, other components of the birthday:
His best friend is driving 6 hours out here to hang out, and
We're all going up to Spokane/Coeur D'Alene to go to a boxing match, and
Hopefully eating at this place that serves crocodile, if I can find it, and
We're meeting up with some of his Marine buddies after that to go drinking (I'll drive so they can all get shitfaced), and
Yes, he'll get pie.

So, in light of all this: Would you call this a successful birthday plan, or do you think he's gonna be (i.e. would YOU be) upset about the gift aspect?

Nice. Pie is nice.

Knife, beer, pie....should be an excellent birthday. He'll be happy.

If you really want to blow your budget, buy him 20 rounds of .223. That is worth about $250 now.

I planned something along these lines, but an actual list is a great idea. Thank you!

And his favorite is punkin' pie.

When your significant other dresses up like a school girl (down to the pigtails) you think you have died and gone to heaven.
I think he deserves it.


You guys seriously underestimate me...

...and I apparently need to learn to save these things for special occasions. Usually, "Monday," "it's raining," "I'm bored," or "it's been like, a day" are reason enough.


It's a serious sign that I know you WAY too well when your quote was my first thought. Also, I'm still waiting on my pics...


You got the bachelorette party pictures. Quit bitching.

I think your covred in so far as a gift gose, letting the boy hang with his buds and pie is a great gift!

Does it mean I'm officially desensitized to ARFCOM if I scrolled past SIIHPAPP the first time without even thinking about it?

You could stop at pie.

After that everything is just sauce on the goose.
Link Posted: 10/12/2007 6:57:09 AM EST
Pie FTW!

That's what I'm hoping for. Considering she's been "healing" since the episiotomy when she gave birth on Labor Day, and my birthday is on the 21st, man I'm just hoping she's done "healing" by then...

Hopefully this isn't something more nefarious, like that "no more pie ever" diet I hear some wives are putting their husbands on...

I am not sure how memorable you want to make this for him, too good and you will have trouble topping it in future years you know, but...

If you had the chance, starting the day off with a breakfast steak and a bj would blow his mind.

Yes, men like pie.

I would be happy if my wife just would agree that I don't have too many guns. (ok, and pie )/

Yes, it is.

Don't think much of it, he'll be alright.

Have a good morning.

One of those was already taken care of.

It's not the coupon.

wake up with a BJ and pie
BJ as soon as he walks thru the door,
pie or another BJ somewhere while you are all out partying

and more pie when you get home!

Thats always a good B-Day present, wife did that one year.

No, gifts are unimportant.
Link Posted: 10/12/2007 7:37:22 AM EST
Guys really don't care if everything is really planned out way in advance as long as it is fun. Knives/tools are always good gifts for guys. Men love getting gifts that reflect their interests.
Link Posted: 10/12/2007 7:39:56 AM EST
Make sure its a good knife, and not some crappy cheapo knife.

If only my wife would realize Im serious when I say I only want one thing for my birthday.
Link Posted: 10/12/2007 8:43:45 AM EST
I got a new shirt and a piece of ass for my birthday.


Both were 2 sizes too big.

Give the gift of Succubus. Spend the entire day wearing, at most, an oversized shirt. Wake him up with an oral presentation and keep him going again and again until night and he's too tired to move. Please him all day long and show no mercy doing it. Drain him dry. That is exactly the gift I want on my birthday.

I wish more of my family had this sentiment.

Give him the knife, and put a card in with it saying you and he will spend some quality time together, in which he'll pick out a CC holster and you'll pay for it.

The rest of the birthday plans sound A1 to me! He's a lucky guy!

Have fun at the CDA reservation. Are the fights any good there? Only been to the casino a few times, mostly for the buffet.

Made the hubby breakfast and gave him a ride to class.

Our local gun guy had exactly one of these stock, and it was exactly what I was looking for. I'm feeling better about this birthday thing now:




ETA: It's a good old Made-in-the-USA Buck, btw.

Now, I'm off to the... um... costume store... for my... um... Halloween costume.

ETA #2: The croc thing is a no-go. The restaurant has changed names/hands and no longer serves it... Working on a back-up plan.

I could care less about gifts. I grew up poor so I never got any. Just do whatever you do and make sure he knows you appreciate him. That is all that matters.

And pie too.

only if your significant other is female (strictly speaking for myself here)

Link Posted: 10/12/2007 12:31:49 PM EST
Pick a place to go and eat. it wont matter where. Wear a sexy short dress of some kind. When your anout done eating dinner excuse yourself to the restroom. When you return press your still warm panties into his palm under the table and give him a smile....From that point forward you can do NO wrong.....PERIOD. Let dont leave him hanging so to speak...Trust me on this, it'll be remembered a LONG time.
