How to Give a Gift That Will Blow Someone’s Mind

So, we gave some really great gifts this year, but none of them can compare to this one.

Getting an iPad would be great, but the care and detail that went into this gift is sure to make it something this guy’s girlfriend will never forget.

Spectacular, right? In a followup post, this metal cutting gentleman said that the jig was almost up. Several times.

For weeks before, people on Facebook were posting about his plans. He just crossed his fingers and hoped that she wouldn’t find out. On Christmas Eve morning, he had all of their family over to their house to open some presents. The family members were all in on it. She opened her gift first and that was that. The next moments were a blur, but he remembers crying and hugs.

She said yes.

Congratulations to you both!
