I don’t know about you, but every year around this time I already start to feel the pressure of the holiday season. It may certainly seem ridiculous being that it’s only September, but I just feel that as soon as I blink my eyes it will be December and I’ll be behind the eight ball, yet again. I feel like there’s probably a great middle ground for being prepared but not overzealous and I am in the process of finding that sweet spot.
This year instead of nickel and diming myself to death and coming away with a bunch of little gifts that my husband is surely going to forget in a month’s time, I am going to put the money I would have spent on all these trinkets into getting him something he has wanted for our home for some time – a grandfather clock.
We just moved into this place about a year ago; it’s our dream house and we’ve had all the fun in the world going room by room through our home looking for ways to make it ours and make it truly special. We have not sacrificed in choosing those pieces that we really love; if we don’t have the money we just wait for what we want instead of filling the void with cheaper substitutes.
In the front of our home is a study/library that my husband has essentially claimed as his own and since we set foot in this place he has wanted a grandfather clock in “his” room. So this holiday season I will be presenting him with a truly unique grandfather clock that I have chosen from 1-800-4CLOCKS. Their selection was amazing – some of the most beautiful grandfather clocks made by renowned clock makers; and the price was great too.
This holiday is going to be truly something special!
