One of the best gifts Germaine and I can give each other as a couple and as parents is the gift of time. One aspect that has strengthened our marriage and friendship throughout the years has been personal time. We give each other personal time to do things we each enjoy as individuals.

Germaine and I do a lot of things together in addition to being husband and wife. We parent, work, exercise, travel, serve our community and dream together so sometimes a little time apart is good for us.

I love being creative through writing, art and reading while Germaine enjoys sports and gaming. We realize we must be intentional about allowing one another individual time to pursue hobbies.

Germaine and I have been really good at making sure the other gets that personal time they need. For example, when our kids were young I would encourage Germaine to take time to enjoy his video games. Was it an extra burden for me to take on all four kids for an hour or so while he played? Sure it was, but he did the same for me. We needed that when our kids were little and I’m glad we gave that to each other.

One of Germaine’s favorite games after we married was Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®. Playing the action-packed multiplayer game on his own or with me was a fun way to relax.

To encourage him I decided to create a fun gamer style box. The thought process behind it is to encourage a game night with him or to encourage him to use it the next time he plans some game time. The codes plus protein packed Slim Jim snacks are great to enjoy while gaming and make a great addition to this gamer box.

I made my husbands’ tee and beverage bottle label using vinyl. I wanted him to have a shirt that let him feel like he could enjoy a few hours on the game to himself.

Once the labels were done, I filled the bottom of the box with shredded paper and layered in each item.

When Germaine saw the box and put his shirt on he started brainstorming his next gamer session. I feel confident this box was just what he needed to jumpstart some dad “me time”.
