my best effort : to gift peace of mind
Last November, I was faced with the challenge of choosing a birthday present for my man. Since he's been mine for a long time, I've tried most of the possible gift categories on him before. What would make him truly happy? I thought of all the little to-do's, house annoyances, tasks and errands that pile up and nag him every time they come to mind. I decided to make a list of all those things -- and do them. Thereby giving him: Peace Of Mind.
It was a ton of work and tricky to conceal during the weeks and days leading up to his birthday - but the reward was great.
To convey it all, I created a stack of cards in a paper box. The images that follow take you through the entire gift.
Some of the items will mean nothing to you -- but you know how it is, that random photo that you keep meaning to frame or that annoying bump in the rug that you see every time you come home.
