Nothing Says "Love" like an Iron and Ironing Board
That's how the handwritten card started...which was sitting right next to a brand new iron and ironing board - a surprise that my girlfriend left for me to find when I came home from work.
And I absolutely loved it!
I know what you're thinking - what the heck - an iron! Isn't that the gift every girl dreads?
Well, first of all, I'm a guy - and a manly one at that. I'm in my mid 20s and like beer, football, and BBQ.
And you know what? I like looking good when I go out, too!
And too often, I was leaving the house with a wrinkled shirt.
I constantly remarked that I needed an iron, but the de-wrinkle setting on the dryer was working just fine...you know how it goes.
I came home from work one day, opened the front door, and there it was...I was so happy to get my new iron and ironing board! It was such a thoughtful gift because I needed it and I wasn't expecting it.
I wouldn't recommend this for a birthday or major anniversary, but for a "just because" surprise that they really need (and keep forgetting to pick up) - why not!? - give an iron!
