What is tougher – selecting a gift or handing over the gift? In this age of overnight delivery, handing over the gift is an easy task compared to the arduous hours spent in selecting the appropriate gifts. After the Valentine’s day, my wife shared a story of a friend who experienced a mental block while selecting a gift and a stage fright while handing over the gift. The gift was intended for his wife.
When the Valentine’s day approached, he was clueless as to what to get for his better half. He asked my wife’s assistance in selecting a gift. My wife, after her analysis, suggested a dress material and also chose the best one possible in his budget. But, on the D-Day, he could not hand over the gift fearing his own mother. He was so worried about his mother and her raised eyebrows since they had spent a good amount of money during their recent visit to the mall citing Valentine’s day.
Finally, the romantic in him succeeded in finding an appropriate excuse to hand over the gift on the D-day. He handed over the gift in front of his mother saying he won this in a contest at work!
Who says life is easy for married men?
