the story of the chanukah giraffe

Once upon a time, a young woman and a young man had been together a while and the holidays were coming up. The young woman was feeling a little sassy and told the young man that if she couldn't wear her Chanukah gift then she didn't want it. By that, she just wanted to give him a little push in the right direction.

A month or so later, the young woman found a darling handmade jewelry shop on Etsy. Recognizing how difficult she can be to shop for, as far as jewelry is concerned, she Facebook messaged the young man the link with the note "I'm just going to leave this here." Though she had forgotten about her previous conversation with the young man regarding the holidays, she thought he could bookmark the site for a future gift-giving celebration.

On an unseasonable warm Sunday morning, the young man announced that he ordered a piece from the jewelry shop as her Chanukah gift. She felt bad because she didn't mean to pick out her own gift, but she was also excited because she loved everything the little shop had to offer. She had faith that he would choose something special and that mystery would be surprise enough.

On the first night of Chanukah, the young woman and the young man exchanged gifts. When the young woman opened the box for her new watch, a simple gold chain caught her eye in the bottom of the wrapping. She giddily moved the paper to find the most perfect Chanukah giraffe waiting for her inside! She exclaimed with joy, quickly clasped the chain around her neck, and kissed the young man. "Best Chanukah ever," she said.
