There are many ways a husband can express his love for his wife and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. It doesn’t have to be fancy. And it certainly doesn’t have to impress anyone but her. Which is why creativity, thought, and care for the gift will always trump everything else. At least that’s what I think when I see what this guy did for his wife. Matt Bracone made a Harry Potter inspired Pensieve so that his wife could open up lovely memories whenever she wanted. Here’s Matt’s description:
When our wedding was getting closer, I was wracking my brain to find the perfect gift for my soon-to-be wife. As we are both Harry Potter fans, I turned to the Wizarding World for inspiration. After she smiled at me and hit me with a stunning spell, I awoke to know exactly what to get her: her very own Pensieve.
For those who aren’t Harry Potter fans, a Pensieve is a bowl used to view memories. Dumbledore would use his wand to pull memories from his head and store those memories in bottles. When he’d want to see a particular memory, he’d pour the bottle into the bowl to view it.
Check out the project below:
Gift 1: Her very own magic wand!
Gift 2: Hand-made bowl
The bottom of the bowl
Gift 3: Bottles filled with memories of her
Put them all together, and you’ve got a Pensieve!
So, when she wants a memory, she just puts the wand in the bowl…
And pulls the memory out!
Open the memory, and smile!
Gift 4: Empty bottles and blank sheets of paper, for future memories
