My Hubby's First Christmas Surprises!

So you all know what my first Christmas gift for my hubby is and wondering what I got on my part? Oh well, I've got nothing but a surprised GSM - Gadgets, Service and Music!

Gadgets for the Techie Me. Raymond knew that I love surprises more than anything wrapped! So a week before Christmas, he helped me decide and actually chose a new Nikon camera for me! I've been wanting a new camera since it is almost a year now when my Nikon camera broke (and I've been using his Xperia cellphone!lol) but I can't make up my mind what to get! His gift let me capture all our memories all year round!

Cellphone. Been craving for a new cellphone for weeks, one that has a dual sim, camera and wifi since mine (though still my fave gadget) is 4 1/2 years old now. I have looked at the Lenovo brand for a change and found something I like which is not very much, but the cheapskate me didn't want to shell out any money. So I considered just getting a postpaid line to enjoy the free Samsung Galaxy S III that comes with the P600 plan without any cash out, but in the end I decided to just be happy with a new camera, so Raymond got me my Nikon Coolpix. End of story? Nah. This morning, Raymond surprised me with a Lenovo A60+ that I have checked back three times at SM Fairview and said that is his real Christmas gift! I couldn't be happier!

Surprise Acts of Service. The night we were all busy with the house repainting, Raymond asked me permission to attend a meet - up with friends. I felt bad that he had to leave me that night. Little did I know that it was his way to be able to go home to our house in Sta. Rosa Heights to get some wedding gifts that we could use in our house in Valenzuela like ceiling fan, convection oven, cutlery set, dinner set and tornado mop. The next day, he went about helping in the house renovation.

Music. Before Christmas Eve while I was all busy wrapping my little gift for him, he went downstairs to prepare the sound system for our Christmas program. After a little while, I heard "Hark The Herald Angels Sing" from some carolers, but I didn't bother to look at the windows since I already gave the coins to my sister -in-law to give to all carolers. My mother came to my room and asked me to look out the windows. I was surprised to see my hubby with his guitar and all my 11 nieces and nephews singing me Christmas carols.

Indeed, my husband knows exactly the perfect gifts for me - and that is a gift of himself for a Christmas that is memorable, fun and stress - free.
