The Guy keeps telling me it's a pretty casual affair and I don't need to bring a gift. To me, that's just wrong. So, I am getting a gift for his grandparents and one for his parents. But honestly, that means "his grandmother" and "his mother".
Grandparents got the brown suede couch throw I bought on Boxing Day sale last year. I figured old people are always cold, this is a good thing. I threw in a really cute ornament I got for a dollar at Dollarama. Threw it all into a decorative bag and boom super impressive.
The Mother was a different story. I had decided on a centre piece or a decorative thingy for her table. Now, to buy or to make was the challenge. I found a great one for $20, but I thought that was too much - both for our budding relationship of girlfriend and guy's mother and for my wallet. So, I decided to make one.
Here it is. It took me longer to scrape the price tag from the bottom of the vase than it did to make it.
- Mixed the green potpourri with the red one.
- Threw the mix in the vase.
- Tied it with the ribbon.
- Cut some tissue paper type stuff and shoved it in the top to keep the smell trapped.
- Revelled in my talent and brilliance.
- Decided to take a picture to show off.
I am the greatest gift giver of all time. And now I have an extra one made for someone else and enough to make a third - possibly a fourth. Sweet deal, eh?
