I received a Montblanc pen.
It was my birthday. It was from my husband. It was he gift that answered the question that I had not asked. My husband explained that it was to replace the old one that I had received years ago as a graduation gift from my aunt. A thoughtful gesture but not exactly the “targeted to my taste” gift. This was the same pen that my husband had usurped from me years ago…and then broke. So years later, belatedly remembering a need for a birthday gift- dashing through the airport- he bought me a Montblanc pen.
