The best gift ever

There are just two days left in my gift idea contest, so get your gift ideas in quickly! Remember, the best gift ideas get a Christmas ornament! I bought the ornaments this weekend, and I'll post pictures tomorrow to provide you all with some extra motivation.

In honor of all of your amazing and creative suggestions that you've already submitted, I will now tell you about the best and most creative gift that I ever gave to Mr. Darling.

Everybody ready? For our first wedding aniversary, I gave Mr. Darling...

A book of boudoir photos! (Which is really just a ladylike way of saying that I gave him a book of softcore porn pictures of myself. Think Maxim with a touch of Playboy.)

That's right, while Mr. D was out of town for school, I had a (female) professional photographer (who was also our wedding photographer and who I've known for years) come to our house and take pictures of me in lingerie and less. My very favorite picture was of me on Mr. Darling's motorcycle (sport bike, not a Harley), wearing a black bra, a black thong and stiletto heels. It's a hot picture. :) Of course, that particular picture had to be taken outside, on my driveway (we hung up a sheet to block the view from the street), and I almost scarred some young children for life when they came around to sell cookies for a school fundraiser... Luckily, they came by just AFTER I had put some more clothes on, otherwise, the title of this post might've been "How I ended up in prison for corruption of minors."

The pictures turned out very hot, and Mr. D loves them. I had the best ones made into a book and also gave him a cd of the 300+ pictures the photographer took. As I told him, now he'll always be able to see me when I was young and sexy, even after I'm old and wrinkly. If any of you wives are looking for a good gift idea, let me just tell you... in my personal experience, that gift goes over really well.

So, what's the best gift you ever gave to someone?

Please send me those pictures. For artistic apprectiation of course. I promise not to post them. Best, most romantic gift I've given was an iron. And I made a homemade card which read, "Get to work" but the letters were in the shape of tiny hearts.

HAAHA! Zibbs you so funny.

The best gift I have ever given was really not a gift at all, but a suprize 40th dinner party for My Guy. I hired a chef and his assistant and three servers. I invited his large family and mine and a few friends. I rented fancy linens, tables and chairs and stemware and we had a fantastic evening and a delicious 4 course dinner! It was truly an evening to remember.

Tova, I'm not at all surprised that gift went over well! :-)

Maybe you could ask for a similar thing from your hubby for Christmas! (Although the bike seat might be a little cold this time of year depending on where you live).

The best gift I ever gave was to my ex-husband (before he was my ex). He had mentioned how as a kid he had always wanted the Bumblebee Transformer action figure but never got one. So, I tracked one down and gave it to him for Christmas. When he opened it up, he burst into tears! Awww. :-) He still says it's the best gift he ever received.

Ohh la la how lovely and a great mental picture..your hubby is such a lucky man. The best gift that I ever gave was probably the Wii as a complete surprise to my honey.

I never gave my hubby any hot pictures of me ... kind of wish I had while I could of! But if I could turn back time...aww man what a scandal there would be!

heehee I did the same thing just a few months ago. But I gave them to him "just because". And they weren't taken at my house. I'm sure this is the best gift I've given to him. ;0)

LYDIA said...

I did the same thing once - too bad it was for my ex! lol. I think he still has the cd of all the pics that were taken, he "couldn't find it" when I moved out!

kim said...

Um - I gave my ex-boyfriend similar pictures. And we broke up. And now Hubs knows the said ex has naked pictures of his wife.

Not. Good.

Kudos to you for being smart enough to do it after you got married!

Well, as you know, my husband just bought me an oven: one of those double barrelled gifts, yeah? His birthday is tomorrow, and I can't answer my own questions what to speak of yours :)

When I was 13 I used baby sitting money to buy my mom a violet and a pot to plant it in for her birthday. I made a card to go with it that said I knew how much violets meant to her mother and how much her mother meant to her so I wanted to give her a violet so she would know how much she meant to me. The same year my sister took money from her job at Ponderosa and bought mom a dozen roses. Sis was really pissed when mom cried over my gift instead of hers! Mom & I still both have potted violets in our homes.

i am always up for the hand in plaster with the date. Or macaroni in some sort of design. Yet, your idea would work as well, maybe i will do that for wifey.
