I love my boyfriend but.....

sometimes he gets a little excited and doesn't read the "small print". He asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told him a Burberry umbrella -- a large one since it has been raining like the Dickens here in the Bay Area. Well he surprised me today by giving me one of my presents -- the Burberry umbrella.

However, when I looked at the tag, I realized he gave me this on:

Burberry - Ladies Stick Umbrella - Saks.com

The Ladies Walking Umbrella -- which I find to be funny since I am a guy. But in any case, I love the umbrella's shining frame but am curious if it is a bit too "girly". My bf tries hard and I love that he even remembered -- however, I am not sure if I want to walk around town with a woman's umbrella.

I think I am going to exchange but I am still a bit in shock with the latest gift he just gave me -- I am shaking a bit over it......a LV shopping spree. So yeah the umbrella seems trival now that he went all out with the other stuff. WOW!

Dude, you're kidding, right? That's not "girly" at all! My hubby and I agree: NOT GIRLY! Hubby says: "honestly, I can't think of one guy that looked at somebody's umbrella and said 'that's girly'"! I say, if I saw a man carrying that umbrella, I'd think he was quite dapper...and rich.

Merry Christmas!:kiss:

It's not girly at all! Now if your bf would have bought you an umbrella with flowers all over it, that would be girly! BTW, your bf sounds like a sweetie, I don't think I had a BF that would spend that much on me until I met my DH.

just because it is described as a "ladies" item doesn't make it any more or less feminine. it's just an umbrella and looks perfectly unisex to me.

personally though i'm not too big on the novacheck at all... i have a small collection of animal print umbrellas (and you think this one's girly!??) and a westwood
