Gifts When They're Most Needed

I just got Princess a new phone that she needed badly.

Princess had her eyes on the LG Ice-Cream for the longest time. Ever since she saw the LG skinner we put on her blog as part of a Nuffnang campaign a few months ago.

Problem was that she already had a new China iPhone from her Dad so she really didn't need a new phone. Heck already I'm getting so much flak from the Nuffies that scold me each day for "spoiling the market" so I wasn't going to buy her anything that she didn't need.

Thanks to her rough hands and sloppiness though, she managed to break her China iPhone in record time.... within two months or something. Living on a "borrowed" phone from her mum she needed a new phone so I decided to help out a little.

Princess felt bad and didn't want me to give her anything without an occasion so I said that this was our advance 1st Anniversary present.

Her reply
"That's like... 5 months away!!!"

But here's what I think about presents like this. I always believe that we shouldn't be governed by a fixed time or occasion before we buy someone something. I think if there's any point in time we think of something that your special someone would like or need, then why not buy it then when he/she needs it most?

So thanks to Mike for helping me source for the phone, I managed to get one for her.

I think the phone is great. I mean it's not expensive and has all the features you need. Plus the keypad is big which helps for girls with long finger nails like Princess.

She was happy... ripping open the box the minute I brought the phone into her room.

This same phone woke me up late last night when it started ringing though.

I began to think that maybe I should've gotten her a phone without a speaker. Heh... but well.. whatever makes her happy.
