Saturday Steals: Poor Kyle’s Christmas Gift to Me and Welcome to the New Year

3) Add the link to said post to the list at the bottom of this post.


This year for Christmas I got a gift from Poor Kyle.

It was perfume.

I like it.

He got me Givenchy Play, but when he was at the perfume store he could not decide between the regular kind and the intense kind, so he bought both:

We had been discussing this perfume for many months. Around October we went on a day trip to a mall in Calgary and stopped at a perfume/cologne booth to smell every scent there was. We didn’t buy anything, but we both picked out our favourite scents for each other based on what we liked the other to smell like.

I tried to buy my pick for Kyle for our anniversary a few weeks later, but it was sold out everywhere I looked.

And then school got crazy and I forgot all about it.

But Poor Kyle did not forget.

He bought his pick for me, and as luck would have it, I like the smell of it too. (He never likes my choices of cologne for him.)

As far as I know he didn’t get it on sale or buy it with a coupon, so by my normal definition of a steal it doesn’t really apply.

But my husband bought me a Christmas present, and a thoughtful one at that, and one that I love and will use for years to come.



Now it’s your turn! What have you stolen lately?

Add your steal to the link list below. It will be open from now till Sunday at 11:59 p.m.

p.s. I’m sorry I am tardy with the publishing of this post. I couldn’t think of a steal. Also it was New Year’s Eve and I sort of forgot about my blog.

p.p.s. Happy 2011.

p.p.p.s. Best song ever. And fitting. I’ve had it stuck in my head all day.

  1. I just use whatever perfume my mother-in-law buys me for holidays and birthdays and such. John doesn’t complain, so I guess I’m okay. Have a great New Year!

    The perfume kind of looks like some kind of camera or cell phone…is it just me? :-)
