Help With Birthday Gifts For Mi Madre, Mi Padre, and a Three Year Old, Por Favor



*******************************************************************

Update: Whewwwwww I think I'm *just* about finished :PONDER:

Here is what I ordered from OS for my mom:

***************************************************************************************

My mom was sort of bummed out this morning which prompted me to start thinking of things I could put in a care package to cheer her up. While I was racking my brain for gift ideas all of a sudden I realized her BIRTHDAY IS ON THE 22ND and I have yet to get/send her anything!?? SONOFAB*TCH!!!!!

Seeing as it has to be shipped to London (granted through an FPO but still.. depending on the flight schedule it can take a while) I need to find something ASAP.. but I'm totally drawing a blank!!

The problem is she's pretty picky about gifts. She loves the sentimental mom stuff but OH.MY.GOD I've made her/gotten her so much of that shiz. Personalized mugs, framed poems, angel pendents, you name it. If I found something cool that I hadn't already given her I'd totally consider it but.. I'm not sure something like that exists :OY:

She loves to read but gets books constantly at school. She's not that big on tv/dvds, not good with electronic gadgets, likes music but not enough to bother with CDs, gave up sweets for Lent so no chocolate, etc., loves sudoku but I've bought her a million books already and she isn't interested in the electronic version..

Last Mothers Day I got her a giant foot spa that I thought was AWESOME and she would love.. but she has yet to use it.. Le sigh.

The best I've come up with so far is a bracelet.. but I'm a total azz when it comes to picking those out for other people!! Especially someone that isn't my age..

I found this on Amazon:


http://www.amazon.com/14k-White-Gold-Love-Bracelet/dp/B000WEAHGQ/ref=sr_...

Which I really like but.. is it too young for her? Also.. ordering something that costs that much and has no reviews seems a little iffy..

Anyhoo :IRK:

Any and all ideas will be soooooooooo welcome :PLEASE: I never buy jewelry so any recommended (& affordable) sites would be awesome!!

:FROGGY: TY chicas!

Elijahs birthday is on March 10th (he'll be three) and I found these while searching for my mom last night:

Bwaaaa I hope you're checking out the eclipse woman!! It is friggin amazing!!! Oooo yeah I haven't been on the comp really tonight and totally forgot about checking the package :IRK: I'll check the UPS site now and see if there is any more info.. though I did sign up for the automatic email updates and haven't seen anything :PONDER: I actually don't hate dark choc like I used to.. but I use it mostly as a last resort and I'm not desperate enough to break into this supply :ROTFL:

How did I know? :rotfl: I don't like dark choc either. Screw it's health benefits, I'd rather have heshey's kisses hahahaa Karma, ask the rep if they require signature from the person who receives the package. They usually do, but it's discretionary to the company shipping the merch. Also UPS is able to track every step of their packages, ask them to check their logs and tell you where the hell's your box. _________________________ We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. - Goethe

Hellz no Shi, I already ate the milk choc covered toffee pistachios that I bought my dad :ROTFL: But the dark choc isn't tempting me at all.. I'm 99.9% sure that its safe :ROTFL: I have no idea.. I tracked it on the site and through UPS and it just says 'shipped'.. which is making me nervous because that's what it says for the bracelet that I already received as well, so it doesn't change to 'delivered' like with some sites. I'll go on the site again tonight and speak to one of those representatives. Seems like it should be here by now (I ordered on the 12th I think :PONDER: ) but it technically does have til the 25th to arrive :IRK:

do you know why is it taking so long? can you track the package? maybe it's in backorder and you'll just have to wait till they restock. That chocolate is in danger of ending up in your belly with every day that passes :rotfl: _________________________ We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. - Goethe
karmasabitch karmasabitch 6 years 30 weeks
Amen to that haahahahahah :ROTFL: :ROTFL: :ROTFL: NO I am still waiting on those damn journals!!! Everything else arrived over a week ago and I got some chocolate truffle gourmet coffee yesterday.. I have the whole box ready except for the dang journals :IRK: Her birthday is in two days and their anniversary is in three :OY:

You would think so Sara, but my mom doesn't like getting food as gifts! She's off of sweets for Lent and she just prefer other things grrr.. Well I suppose if I somehow found something super healthy, new, and delicious she'd like it but.. that's impossible :ROTFL: I'm STILL waiting on the journals!! :RANT: Shi something about your damn dancing avie rubs me the wrong way woman :ROTFL: HAHAHAH :ROTFL:

I am not a good gift buyer. My BF is way better and I'm beginning to learn from him. Amazon has anything and everything. Just sort by age, popularity and price range and you probably can't lose. And as for cheering someone up...food, always send food.

I like the dancing avvy Karma. And I'm glad you got rid of your stupid Senor Arbusto shaking it like a retar.d. I wanted to punch the screen every time I saw it :rotfl: :rotfl: _________________________ We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. - Goethe
