The Best Gifts in History
Are you a great gift giver? How do your gifts stand up to some of the greatest gifts in history?
France gave the United State a 305-foot statue that took almost 9 years to build, otherwise known as the Statue of Liberty. President Truman received a bowling ally gifted into the White House. Emperor Shah Jahan ordered the construction of the Taj Mahal for his late wife. Count Grigory Orlov of 18th-century Russia gave empress Catherine the Great a 200 carat rose cut diamond. The Greeks gifted a beautiful wooden horse large enough to hold an entire army. In comparison, does your gift card with "Happy Birthday" quickly scribbled on the back look a little weak?
Now, most women don't expect 200 carat diamonds and if they do you may need to reconsider your career choice. However, most wouldn't say no to a spontaneous weekend getaway, a fun night night out with friends or a relaxing evening on the couch binge watching her favorite show ( and what better way to do this than with our I Need My Net-Fix Box.)
We are here to tell you that it is not always the size of the gift that matters. Emperor Shah Jahan may have ordered the construction of the Taj Mahal for his late wife, but I'm sure she would have also appreciated the help of putting their 14 kids to bed. Catherine the Great surely loved the 200 carat diamond, but she may have been just as excited with a prompt text back after their first date.
Most of the time women will be happy with the small and simple things that you give and do for them. However, when the occasion requires something a little more we have plenty of great options at Brilliant Gifts that will surely make her smile.
