When was the last time you surprised someone you love? For me, it’s been awhile, and I’ve been pondering what sort of thing I should do for my husband this time “just because”. In the past I’ve hidden love letters and notes for him, gotten us new “toys” to play with, bought new lingerie, taken him out for dinner, brought home something I knew he wanted…all of the usual stuff.
He’s changing jobs in the next couple of weeks, and taking some time off between – and our anniversary is this weekend (Saturday or Sunday…I can never remember exactly which date. My parents will remind us, I’m sure). We don’t exchange gifts, so he’s not expecting anything (we normally just do a nice dinner, and we’ll still do that). But I’m leaning towards ordering a new toy and making him wait to open the box until I get home from work one day this week, just for something fun and exciting. It’s not just my characters and readers I like to torture with suspense.
So tell me – when’s the last time you surprised a loved one with something fun? What are your favorite ways to surprise people?
