Man makes his wife a Harry Potter pensieve as a wedding gift; wins at life

All the memories, all the feels.

Girls, listen up. If a guy goes to the effort to get to know the things that really bring you joy, and then go out of his way to bring more of that stuff into your life, lock him in your basement sims style and never let him go.

Okay, so maybe don't do that, but you get the gist?

Enter: Matthew Brocone, someone all you men should be taking notes from.

When Matthew married his wife Janine two years ago, he decided no ordinary gift would do his love justice, so he decided to make her a freaking pensieve from Harry Potter (obvious fans) and put all their best memories inside.

Talking to Buzzfeed News Matthew said: "She got me the first book and made me promise her that I’d read it, and that was all it took. I’ve read the books twice, and she’s read them probably 3-4 times. We’ve seen the movies countless times, and are trying to plan a trip to Harry Potter World.”

He continued: "The bowl was something that initially I was going to buy. Pottery was something I always thought sounded fun, and after leaving a few stores frustrated, I decided just to make it myself. I wandered into a local pottery shop and described to the lady what I was hoping to do. She thought it sounded fun and told me she’d do everything to help me.”

We're crying, like a lot RN.

“I tried out several sizes and shapes [for the bottles] that didn’t work, and I was also trying to figure out how to have her ‘grab’ them,” Matthew said. “My first thought was a hook, but that wasn’t nearly magical enough (and I knew that the bottles would get stuck together).”

So he just ya know - GOT HER A WAND INSTEAD.

He glued magnets on the bottles and at the end of the wand, to make it more ~magical~...

We are officially dead. We're actually writing this from our graves right now.

Oh, but it doesn't even end there.

Look how he GAVE it to her.

“We did the traditional ‘you don’t see each other before the ceremony’ thing, so we exchanged gifts in the morning the day before the wedding,” Matthew said. “I hid the package (with Hedwig on top of it) by the front door. Then, I pretended like I heard a sound by the front door and told her that she needed to go check to see if she got a special delivery.”

“She definitely cried.” You don't say?
