My husband is more generous than I am. He truly is. He’s a penny-pincher most of the year, but when it comes to giving gifts of pretty much any kind, he goes over the top. When I shop for myself, I’ll often buy something not-quite what I’d like, because the thing that I would truly like is much more money.
In October, I posted about a cringe-worthy coat mishap that I’d had a couple of years ago, then again when I found a fairly inexpensive coat that fit my requirements. I did ask my hubby for a coat for Christmas, but that was early in October, and I never mentioned it again. I wasn’t sure if he’d forgotten. Turns out, he hadn’t.
He didn’t get me the coat that I had wanted, which is the still-great:
But, truly, he did much better with this absolutely fabulous coat, in black. (This pic is from Overstock.com, but he found it at Macy’s for the same price.)
I love my new coat. It’s perfect. And my hubby is dear for buying the perfect coat — both for spending a few extra $$ on it, and for just knowing it was the right coat for me.
