Special Moments with Under Lucky Stars

I love giving unique and meaningful gifts. Under Lucky Stars hit both when it came to finding the perfect gift for my husband.

My wedding anniversary is coming up and I’ve been searching for the perfect gift for my husband.  Being that my husband is a graphic designer, I always try to choose anniversary and birthday gifts that revolve around that genre.

I love giving him unique and meaningful gifts.  I really wanted something different other than the usual design books or other art related things I normally get him.  I found Under Lucky Stars and knew that it was the perfect present to give my husband this anniversary.

Please note that I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  

 

Under Lucky Stars was kind enough to let me choose a star map of my choice. They create a map of the stars above the location of a special date and time for you.  You can choose any date of significance to you – the birth of your child, first date, first kiss, etc.  This makes it so unique and a very meaningful gift! You can commemorate and freeze that special moment and have it showcased somewhere in your home.

I couldn’t wait until our anniversary day to give this to my husband (as with any gifts I get him) so he got to open this early.  The reaction on his face when he saw it was enough to tell me that I did a good job with this anniversary present! The days before I gave it to him I was trying to figure out a good spot for it.

Finally found a place for it.

After moving it around to various places in our home, I settled with the space above our bed.  Since moving in, almost a year and a half ago, we have been trying to figure out what to place over our bed.  He was happy enough placing it there.  I’ve been admiring it since he placed it up there.

I’m thinking our next set of posters should be of the kids’ birthdays.  I’d love to compare and contrast how different the stars look on each of those specials days.  Check out Under Lucky Stars to commemorate and freeze your own special moments.

 

Dear Husband

I know that it can’t be easy being a partner in the postpartum journey of mine.  It definitely does have it’s ugly moments.  My husband manages to try his best to be by my side through this whole journey.  He doesn’t have the conventional ways of showing that he loves me.  I don’t get the surprise flowers, chocolates, or pieces of jewelry.

I do however get days where he comes home with my favorite candy bar, random packages of things that I have sitting in my Amazon cart, handwritten notes on my school notepad, and emails on my work email that simply say “I love you.”  Add the time he sets aside to just focus on the boys.  He makes sure to play with them, read to them, and well just take care of them.  Those moments just make my heart swell with so much more love.  It’s really those type of moments that get to me.

Even yesterday as we picked out our first live tree, I couldn’t help but fall in love with him all over again.  He knows how fanatical I can get around this time of year since I love the holidays so much. Although he just came back from a lunch meeting and had a lot of work to finish up, he insisted we get our tree.  I loved watching him walk hand-in-hand with O as we found our tree.  He is so attentive to our children and I really couldn’t ask for a better father for them.

This whole parenthood thing is a learning process for the both of us.  We have our moments but knowing that he loves the boys as much as I do makes so much of a difference.  He really does his best to provide for our family.  I am loving these moments where it’s the four of us sharing new experiences together.  I can’t wait to keep adding more memories not only for the boys but for the two of us as well.
