If your wedding anniversary is coming and you still have no idea about what to give your spouse, why not give her something that both of you can use for the rest of your life? I know it is highly unusual but I do believe giving a Hamptons style furniture should drive home the message that your relationship is as classic, elegant, beautiful, and durable as the materials with which these beautiful pieces of wooden furniture are made of. Now isn’t that romantic?
I guess you could say that I was lucky enough to have a wife who really love to keep things simple yet very functional. I could have given her a diamond jewelry during our 10th year wedding anniversary but I thought she wouldn’t really like that because what she always said to me is for us to share things in our lives. I began thinking about shopping for a Hamptons style furniture from the IWGH online furniture store. I recalled how my wife’s eyes gleamed upon laying her eyes on the Bordeaux Hamptons style medium cabinet which was bought by a friend when paid them a visit.
This was the first time that I will be purchasing a piece of furniture online and a Hamptons at that. I actually asked a friend for tips buying furniture online. I knew I sounded stupid and ignorant but I guess it was a lot better than pretend I know how it works only to fail miserably in the end.
The purchasing was pretty straightforward. You logon to the website of I Wanna Go Home, create an account, make your selections, pay up, and they deliver the item right to your doorstep. Pretty simple. Unfortunately, I found the selection to be quite extensive that I did have some issues deciding which Hamptons style furniture I need to buy for my wife. Everything just seemed to be the ideal wedding anniversary gift and this is giving me a hard time.
So I logged off and thought about it for a second. I knew I cannot be an impulsive buyer. I cannot go with the dictates of my emotions. So I had to really look into our relationship and reflect on what my wife really loves to do and what she would really appreciate. My wife loved to read. She’s got plenty of books from academic books to self-help books to novels, economics, geography, and home improvement books. She also has plenty of magazines of varied interests. I think a bookcase or a display cabinet should really make her happy. Unfortunately, she also loves to cook. If she is not reading, she is in the kitchen creating some delectable recipes for all of us. She is no Michelin-starred chef but she can sure hold out her own. So a floating wall shelf or a kitchen display cabinet would seem pretty nice gifts.
I was actually at a loss and was utterly divided between a furniture for my wife’s books, magazines, and other reading materials and a furniture for our kitchen. I knew I have to get the display cabinet simply because I know how much she loved that Bordeaux we saw in our friend’s home. So I logged back in at I Wanna Go Home and was quite divided between the Halifax 8-Door Pantry with Glass and the Halifax Large Hutch Bookcase. After careful thought, I went for the Halifax 8-Door Pantry. I coordinated with the company if it was possible to have it delivered to coincide with the day of our wedding anniversary which was in a week’s time. I really wanted to surprise my wife so I had to work with the guys at I Wanna Go Home to make it happen.
To cut the long story short, the day of the wedding anniversary came and I was both nervous and excited. The IWGH guys phoned me that the delivery was on its way. I asked my wife to be blindfolded and to wait for me in the living room. I asked other family members to keep her blindfolded while I asked the IWGH guys to bring the Halifax inside. When they left, I asked my wife to remove her blindfold and, looking in her eyes, I knew I made the right choice.
Giving a Hapmtons style furniture to my wife for our wedding anniversary may have been very unusual but I think it just goes to show how much we appreciated each other. I am not saying that you should give your wife a Hamptons for your wedding anniversary, too. What I am saying is that Hamptons style furniture is simply elegant and classic that it can be the perfect gift to those we love.
