A food for thought Mar?  And yes, why not make a blog of this?

Why do girls like gifts that last so long?” Mar asked.

“This could be a whole blog,  Agnes commented.

It’s because we love making and keeping memories and gifts of that nature are worth-keeping”, I said.

Maybe because that kind of gift is an indicator that your love is eternal…unflinching…and steadfast???!!! Nelia questioned.

Why indeed?   And would you agree if I say that men are more romantic  than we are when it comes to gift-giving?  Are women more practical in terms of finding that one special gift that would delight the recipient?  Romance does play a big role when it comes to gift-giving and I don’t mean friends or relatives but between husband and wife.

Call me a bit on the practical side but I’d rather have something that would make me remember the occasion it was given than having that bunch of roses  or that big bar of chocolate which in a day or two would somehow be forgotten.  Don’t give me flowers, I prefer a pot of it where I could see it everyday growing in my garden. How practical could you get?  Once in a while though, we want to be surprised and those romantic dinners complete with the wine and the music make us excited.  We always welcome the idea that it is a well-thought  of gift.  And that oh-so-romantic-dinner-by-candlelight is  really something special.  Us girls sometimes give you the hint that we want this or that.  But always, in the end,  it’s the surprise of receiving an unexpected gift that makes us smile.   How could it be otherwise?

Do I sound so unromantic?  But as I’ve said I love keeping memories and what more would  I want than  something that would last longer?
