Weekly roundup: Birthdays, Gifts and Good Times

by Kristina on June 7, 2013 · 3 comments

Happy Friday Dinks. This weekend marks the start of a very busy season for me, actually what I should say is that it marks the start of a very expensive season for me.  It all started a few weeks ago with Mother’s Day, but it gets really busy this weekend.  Within the next month I have my mother’s birthday, my sister’s birthday, Father’s Day and then my Dad’s birthday. Wow I am stressing out just thinking about it.  Oh and I forgot to add in the cost of my friends baby shower, which I am hosting.

I live approximately 7.5 hours away from my family so not only do I try to find the perfect gift for every occasion, I also have to find a gift that offers free shipping.  Right now I am into gift box subscriptions so for Mother’s Day and their birthdays my sister and my mother both received a box full of cosmetics in the mail.

What is your favourite gift to give?

Have a great weekend Dinks, enjoy these posts from around the web.

Hilariously enough I am on the opposite side of the spectrum from you. My birthday just happened yesterday so I’m the one receiving gifts! I love it when I get something I wanted that I didn’t realize the person took note of. Sometimes when I am giving gifts to people, I sneakily show them something and ask them if I should buy it for myself. If they seem into it I end up buying it for their gift. Mostly though, I love going to The Body Shop and picking out stuff for people. It is one of my favorite stores to go to and they have lots of options!

Seems like many people are like that this time of year. There are so many birthdays, weddings, this day and that day it can get overwhelming. Have a great week and enjoy! MR.CBB
