An Amazing Man's Unique Gift for Valentines Day!

There once was this "Amazing Man" who was married to this "Super duper cute, little, fashionable, Funny Woman ;) for many many years (23 to be exact) and needed a really interesting gift for the upcoming Valentines Day gift exchange. He knew she loved clothes, but she had plenty of those.....He knew she loved Animals, but they have 3 dog's already and he knew if she added a 4th (which she would gladly do) the city would cart her off to jail for going over the city ordinance. He knew she loved shoe's, but she was already crowding his closet.....Jewelry is great but he wanted something fun and unique.....? Then he saw an add for a "Wooden Watch." He went to the Jord Webpage and found that the watches are made from "Natural Wood" from around the world. They have beautiful watches for Men AND Women and you can have the Watch Engraved. This is what "My Beloved Wife" must have, he exclaimed!!!!

The "Amazing Husband," ordered his "Fabulous Wife," a watch from the Frankie Collection in Zebrawood and Champagne. Being his perfect self, he knew it would compliment her very fair skin. He found the Website very easy to navigate and had the watch in under a week!

The "Amazing Husband" was thrilled to find that the watch came in a wooden box (now he wouldn't have to wrap the gift and make it look like a 2 year old wrapped it) but could just hand it to his Wife. And she could store the Watch in the Box for years to come. WIN WIN!

The Wife was shocked at the gift....she thought she had her Perfect Husband all figured out...He really hit a "Home Run" with this gift. Wink Wink.

The Wife tried on the new Watch and was pleasantly surprised at how light the Watch was. She could hardly tell she was wearing one.

The Wife was dreaming of all the outfits she could wear with her new Watch....She knew she could dress it up or down.

Then they went for their Valentines Dinner, where the Wife wore her new Wooden Watch and her "Amazing Husband" got a Starbucks Gift Card (She was very embarrassed!)....And when they got home the "Little Wife" secretly went on the Jord Website and ordered a Wooden Watch for her "Perfectly Amazing Husband!" And they lived happily ever after in Wooden Watch Land :)

She's a whole lotta' fun, her name is: "Game Gal!"

Games are a great way to bring people together....and when your hosting a Birthday, Anniversary or Holiday Party, it's double the Turkey, Reindeer, Birthday Cake Fun! I always have a game on hand so that there is no awkward moment's or guests who feel left out. I don't care if it's family or friend's, there is always going to be a shyer guest.....That's where "Game Gal" swoops in for some party pizzazz and to make all feel included and welcome!

Here are some guidlines I follow ~

1. Know your audience.  If you have a mixed age crowd then pick questions that everyone can partake in. 

2. Each game generally has about 10'ish questions. When you get over about 15 questions things start to lag a bit. 20 questions top's!

3. We are here to have fun. I have never been a fan of the uncomfortable questions, or the "roasts" where we make fun of someone. Remember we are trying to make the Birthday person feel special, appreciated and loved.

4. Holiday questions should stay mainstream. I try not to bring controversial or political questions into the mix.

5. Mix in pop culture and personal also, this way the Birthday person doesn't feel like they are being interrogated.

 Let's try this ~

How do I get my Birthday questions? I never ask the Birthday person because I want them to partake and enjoy. I look up everything on the computer under the year the Birthday person was born. I was born in 1972 so here is the link to the one for me: LINK. Then you can change the year on the website. I get a couple questions per decade for the Birthday person. I read these out load and let everyone write down their guess. When I'm finished reading the questions I read the answers to them. Here is a sample:

BIRTHDAY TRIVIA

1. What was the price for a loaf of bread in 1972?

2. What was the top Movie of this year? hint: It was about an Italian Family.

3. How many homes has the Birthday girl lived in since birth?

4. In 1982 what was the most popular video game?

5. What was the Birthday girl's favorite musical group when she was a teenager?

6. In 1992 what Whitney Houston song was #1?

7. What drink came out with the slogan: "Made from the best stuff on earth?"

8.  How much was a Superbowl ad in 2002?

9. Which "Lord of the Ring's" was popular in 2002?

10. What is the Birthday girl's favorite snack food?

THANKSGIVING 

My aunt is the "Game Gal Guru!" I learned this all from her infinite party wisdom. Thanks Lori! Anyway, she generally does Turkey Trivia with History and Pop-culture, Thanksgiving questions. We have done "Thanksgiving Word Scramble".......TIMED! It's very stressful! Pick some easy and hard words and scramble them. Here are samples:

                                                         Word Scramble

So there is a sample. The first one is Turkey and the second is Plymouth Rock. Fun!

                                                   Gobble Gobble Trivia

(For this one I use this link , Kids link has many printable options available also. Many times for a fee)

1. How many days was the actual Thanksgiving Celebration? 

2. The first Macy's Day Parade did not feature any balloons, What did it have instead? 

3. Pilgrim sailed to the new world on this? 

See, I do some for every age since in our family we go from 1 year to 70 years young.

CHRISTMAS

Christmas is done very much like Thanksgiving. For our family we are all very big music fans so we do a word scramble with Christmas Music Titles. If you have a sports family, do one with Sports teams...you get the picture. Also, this is not a game, but a fun and interesting tradition. We stand in a circle and share something about ourselves that was special or important that happened that year. Some of us don't get to see each other much and we find some great things out during that little circle of love and sharing!

 

Have fun end enjoy the holiday's with a little "Game Gal" creativity flowing thru ya! Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help.
