The Gifts.

Following on from my Valentine’s Traditions Post last Friday, I thought I’d post an update on the presents.

One gift for each of the senses, sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

I managed to come in under my budget of £25.00 at just a total of £23.98 as well, which is rare for me.

Obviously my total didn’t include the packaging materials/gift wrapping which are used and the card I obviously purchased separately.

Sight

Sight

For sight I went with a baby doll set – after all he’ll be the only one to see me in it.

£10.00 from Primark

Sound

Sound

For sound I went with comedy tickets to a show at the end of March – so plenty of time for us to organise a babysitter.

£5.00 from SEE Tickets

Touch

Touch

I know he loves the feel of satin as much as I do, so for touch I got him satin boxers.

£5.99 from eBay

Taste

Taste

For taste I got him one of his favourite sweets, Toblerone.

£1.00 from Poundland

Smell

Smell

For smell I normally get shower gels, deodorants, etc.  This year I went with aftershave samples.

There was actually method in this madness, as I got him samples of aftershaves I like, in a secretive approach to finding out which ones he likes, so I can buy him a full size one for his birthday or Christmas.

£1.99 (free samples but had to pay for postage only) from various online perfume shops

This year I went with a navy blue and brown theme, kraft brown bags, boxes, tags and navy tissue paper and ribbon.
