This Christmas, we’ve invited 3 lovely female guest influencers to share what their Christmas experience was like with their other half, and the best gift they’ve ever received from him – a gift that can never be bought.
Gwendolyn & Marcus
Although the two sweethearts had only dated for about half a year at that point of time, it was a delightful surprise for Gwendolyn to see Marcus already clicking so well with her family members. There was even one time when Marcus took the initiative to help plan a birthday celebration for Gwendolyn’s Dad, as the air-stewardess herself was too busy juggling work and school!
The couple first met in school and often hung out and studied together, with the rest of their ‘Study-Kakis’. Hitting it off naturally, the two grew closer to each other and love took its course over time. As the both of them lead hectic lifestyles, dates may not be as easy to come by. On weekends when either one of them has to spend time with their own family, the other will try to join in, making the best out of every opportunity to be around each other. On other rare occasions where the lovebirds have some alone time, they would go for a game of bowling or a round of karaoke - just the two of them.
What is Christmas to you?
Something interesting - if you are given a budget of $10, what would you get for your partner?
Is it okay if your partner doesn’t give you a gift?
Of course, at the same time, the lovely flight attendant feels that the best gift from her other half does not necessarily come in a material form.
If you have to choose only one trait of your partner as the best intangible gift you’ve received from him, what would you choose?
Why that trait?
Share one event that tells you so!
In exchange, what is the one intangible gift you can give to him for the rest of your life?
