Candace Cameron Bure celebrated her 40th birthday on Wednesday, and her husband, Valeri, pulled out all the stops when he bought her the most thoughtful gift.

The gift in question was a pair of 18 karat Tiffany & Co. earrings, specifically, the Elsa Peretti Mesh Scarf Earrings in Gold, which retail for $2,100. It's an expensive purchase, but that's not the reason it's the greatest gift, as Bure later explained when she took to Instagram to share a photo of herself sporting her brand-new earrings.

She captioned the post with an emotional message, writing, "My thoughtful husband bought me the earrings I've admired and wanted since I was 10 years old for my big 4-0! Tiffany gold mesh earrings. Thank you, baby. I'm so grateful and blessed."

It doesn't really matter if the gift had cost thousands or only a couple of dollars, because what makes it truly special is that her husband got something that he knew really meant something to his wife. He bought her a gift she had been dreaming of for 30 years, and his purchase proves he listens and pays attention to what Bure says and wants — and this is the real beauty of the present.

Fans have reacted to the post in a very positive way and are as impressed with Bure's gift as she is.

"They are gorgeous like you. Hope you had a blessed birthday! You are a bright beautiful soul!" redrobinsings wrote.

"Beautiful earrings, and you definitely don't look 40!" shanny627 gushed. And lpacegrammy shared similar thoughts, writing, "Beautiful earrings!! They look great on you!"

We're so glad Bure shared this picture with the public because it reminds us all to pay closer attention to the wants and needs of our significant others (and not just their gift-related needs!) — even if we are just the tiniest bit jealous.
