thank you, caseapp, for the chance to review your products! i'm happy to share my honest thoughts on it.
i give terrible gifts. (can i start a gift-related post with that confession?) i try hard to think of something thoughtful, but finding "that perfect gift" is not my strength. and by "not my strength" i really mean it's a huge weakness.
valentine's day is less than a week away, so usually i'd start my brainstorming....a few days from now. i'm the well-meaning, last-minute type of gift-giver. it's not enough that i'm bad at giving gifts, but i'm also always running late to start thinking of ideas.
but not this year! here are my top 5 suggestions.
caseapp case for the tech guy: this amazing site lets you make a custom iphone case (or samsung galaxy case!) and custom laptop skin using your own pictures (or you could make a graphic design). i used this picture of the philly skyline that devin took from the...15th?...floor of his construction site to make a laptop skin (and by laptop skin i mean vinyl stick-on that doesn't leave a sticky residue behind!). you can get 20% off your order with code AHOPEFUL20, and head over to my instagram to enter to win a $40 credit to caseapp! (most of their products are $20-30, so $40 would go a long way!! and it only took 3 days to ship!)
cd for the music-loving guy: does your guy have a long drive to work? a cd could be a really practical gift! i recommend jenny & tyler's newest cd, or a mixed cd of funny songs (veggie tales' silly songs with larry usually makes it on my mixed cds) and love-related songs.
hobby-related items: this may sound like an obvious one, but for a bad gift-giver like myself i need simple reminders like this one. what is your guy into? is his favorite band doing any concerts in your area? is there a new video game he'd like? fishing gear? (ok, i'm tapped out...i can't think of any other guy-hobbies.)
cologne or a watch for the trendy guy: devin's got different colognes that i associate with different parts of our relationship--one scent he wore in high school, another one he bought on our honeymoon...so why not add to the collection with a new cologne? or, i could go get the watch i gave him resized so he could actually wear it. ;)
