Husband and I worked for the same company.
A very large company.
Different departments, but we still ran into one another and had many, many mutual co-workers who knew we were married.
One year for Christmas I bought him a red Corvette.
(It’s a long and boring story so I won’t go into it, but the end result was I bought the car and gave it to him.)
The story spread like wildfire through the company. And I got a great reputation for being the wife who bought her husband a bright shiny red Corvette!
Everyone thought I was marvelous!
(The part I never told anyone was--- right after I gave Husband the keys to the car I also handed him the payment book for the loan!)
No need to shatter my image, right? LOL
