Listen to an audio podcast of this story here:


When Shirley Radford noticed her husband was interested in buying a bike to help lose some weight, she wanted to make sure he could get exactly what he wanted. So when her husband, Steve, turned 45 on May 5 she got a little creative with his presents.

Shirley bought him several bike-related accessories and included a $100 bill with each. When he opened all his presents, he had enough to purchase his bike.

A week later he did just that.
