This last week was wife's birthday. We're both very low key when it comes to our birthdays, so I thought Jean would prefer a fun game at home. No, not that kind of game, this blog is PG-13!
We pretty much have everything we need or want, so I had to think hard to find something she would like. After doing some research, I went for knitting related gifts given that this is currently her favorite hobby.
Once I got the gifts, I had to come up with a way to give her the gifts. Scavenger hunt seemed like a fun idea.
Started out with card #1, this card was for Christmas
Threw her off a bit with the red envelope. Those are for weddings or from elders, not from a husband to wife for birthday :-) She literally jumped up and down when she found out "it's a game?!??!!!!" and started running around the house.
Several clues later, it led her to the frig.Second card found under the dining table.
This one is for her birthday day. Cute, huh? hee heeThe hint in card #2 led her to the first gift: knitter's bag.Few hints later, she was led outside to my car's trunk where the 2nd gift was found: yarn basket.

What other good ideas have you had or have tried before for your significant other? Share! Share! So I can try to steal it for next year.
Oh yeah, this is also the first post of 2008 so Happy New Year! What did you do last night? Here's where we were. Thanks Brian and Nancy!
