World’s Greatest Husband Made His Wife A Goddamn Magical Harry Potter Pensieve

Guys aren’t always gifted when it comes to performing romantic gestures. Many of them  just assume that washing the dishes without being asked counts as an admirable demonstration of love. And while we appreciate such utilitarian displays of affection (or, um, cleanliness), sometimes us ladies are secretly longing for a touch of creativity or thoughtfulness.

When Reddit user DuffManSzALotAThings decided to give his wife a wedding gift, he went above and beyond in the realm of creativity: he created a handmade Pensieve just for her.

If you aren’t aware (or perhaps just forgot) a Pensieve is a magical item found in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, which allows its user to relive full memories. In other words: a pretty damn romantic gift, when given to your significant other.

The Pensieve came in a beautifully-wrapped box, complete with a tiny stuffed snowy owl (Aww).
