What about a first edition copy of his favorite childhood story book? Or a new one if a first ed isn’t available. My hubby totally loves story time with our little one, especially when the stories are some of his own favorites.

He loves them for these reasons-
*They have a saphhire crystal
*They have a rich history
* They are 100% SWISS made
*They have some great retro styles
* While they compare in every way quality wise to other swiss brands, they are schockingly affordable.

My hubby has a growing collection of them…they are carried by Saks, but we have purchased most of ours from Fossil Outlet Stores (who usually carry them) for even LESS than the retail price. Ebay is also a good place to check.

It was a wonderful experience, and our last carefree trip as a couple before becoming parents.

Wil would feel terribly hip sporting this wrist wear and I am sure he would love telling me that we’re late!

And you are absolutely right about the picture-taking. I wish I had officially given my husband that job with each of our children. We’d probably have a lot more great photographs!

I took my children to the beach to find two special pieces of sea glass. We are using them to make cuff links for my husband, and since he doesn’t have many french cuffed shirts (only one, actually), we are giving him one of those as well. Now, he’ll have to take us all out someplace fancy to sport his new gift!

P.S. Thanks for the book rec. I think I *need* that book.
