Okay, I know it's a recession ... but I bought myself a Valentine's gift. I just HAD to have something in that little blue box. And guess what? It only cost $30.
Momlogic's Julie: Due to the recession, my husband and I weren't doing Valentine's gifts this year.
But at the last minute, I decided it might be fun to have a little something for us to open on the big night. But it had to be within our budget (translation: CHEAP AS HELL).
Just for fun, I went on the Tiffany & Co. website on Thursday. A girl can dream, can't she? I noticed they were offering free shipping guaranteed to arrive by Valentine's Day. Now free I could work with.
But did EVERYTHING from Tiffany cost a small fortune?
I went to the Valentine's Gifts for Under $100 page (yes, I was shocked they had one) and focused in on the most inexpensive thing they offered: playing cards emblazoned with the Tiffany logo. Sure, they were $30 ... yes, INSANE to pay for two decks of cards ... but that came in that iconic blue box, and I thought it might be fun and decadent to open something from Tiffany on Valentine's Day, no matter how small.
So last night, when we opened our Valentine's Day gift from Tiffany, we felt positively rich cracking open that robin's egg blue box. And then we played three games of gin before heading to the bedroom.
Of course my man got lucky ... I had just gotten a Valentine's Day gift from Tiffany, hadn't I?
It was obvious, in the game of love, we had definitely played our cards right.
