A boyfriend had a hilarious fail after his girlfriend’s birthday gin glasses arrived with the inscription: ”Can we have it delivered before Monday if possible as that’s her 30th. Nice one”.
Daniel Varey, 28, had tried to order the personalised present online – to feature the words ‘Happy 30th birthday princess, love you millions’.
But Daniel from Denton, Manchester, accidentally mixed up the inscription with the message for the delivery driver.
His blunder resulted in girlfriend Hayley Woodward, 30, opening a gin glass on her birthday on May 18 inscribed with the delivery note.
Sky customer service representative Daniel ordered the gift for network marketer Hayley on May 15.
The couple quickly realised what had happened and saw the funny side of things.
Daniel said: “I was aiming to make Hayley’s birthday as special as I could for her so I bought her loads of gifts, booked a holiday for February 2021 (fingers crossed it happens).
“The gin glass 100% cheered her up, she couldn’t stop laughing.
“When I was putting the order through for the glass, it came up with a section saying “note for the glass” and additional notes for the business – I got them back to front.
“I had a feeling that I did something wrong because I’m so dopey and I literally rushed the order as Hayley was sat next to me so had to do it secretly.
“I gave it to her yesterday morning and she literally burst out crying with laughter.
“It came gift wrapped so I didn’t see it before she opened it and I was like what the hell is wrong with you? I’ve put my heart and soul into that glass! Then she showed it to me and I was mortified!
“Hayley has already put the glass to use and enjoyed a nice gin and pink lemonade in it yesterday.
“We have a great sense of humour and take life with a pinch of salt so we have definitely seen the funny side.”
Birthday girl Hayley said: “The glass is perfect, absolutely hilarious – it would only happen to us!
“It definitely cheered me up about spending my birthday on lockdown.”
