My man's best friend who has in essence become OUR best friend...in fact along with my bestie he was the best man at our marriage...is currently divorced...and living in a basement apartment.
For Christmas he has NOT asked for anything but we know he needs a new laptop (too expensive), a new car (wayyyyy too expensive) and some other household items. We always get him the standard sweater or something but he is sooo helpful to us...helping us keep an eye on my aging in-laws as we live far away and he is local...so we want to do something more special.
Anyway, as I stated, he pretty much took nothing with him after his divorce...left it all to her and the boy. I cam across a GREAT deal on a bed...frame and all for under $100 and since he's sleeping on a matress on the ground...though this would be a great gift from his best friend (my hubby...who he has known for over 20 years) and me. The concern is that some feel this gift may be a bit too personal. I'm not sure I disagree but I'm not sure I agree. Last year we got him sheets and a comforter...so the bed doesn't seem like that much of a stretch...can you ladies let me know if you think this is too personal of a present. I do not want to offend my man, him, or any potential lady of interest...jus trying to help out a friend who is always helping us out.
Thanks in advance.
