We arrived downtown, and as we walked from the parking garage to the restaurant, I noticed his gift bag. It had a teddy bear in it.
We ordered dinner then I gave him his boxers and candy. I opened my bag, with a teddy bear and a box of turtles. I did my best to act totally cool, and not let him see any disappointment. "Oh turtles, great! I love turtles!" I put the bear and chocolates back in the bag.
We were married later that year in October.
