As the end of February looms, (how crazy fast has it gone?) then it means March is just around the corner and in our family March means birthdays, not just 1 or 2 but LOADS!
This March we have:-
5th - My moms 60th
6th - My sister in laws
12th - Gazs Nans
13th- My nieces 16th
16th - Gazs 23rd Birthday
18th - Mothers day and my parents 40yr anniversary
22nd - Harry's 2nd Birthday
As you can see a very busy month, and VERY expensive too!
Normally I'm on the ball knowing what i want to get each person, getting little personalised pressies and having loads of good ideas, but this year I've got a birthday block, i have no idea what to get anyone at all.
My moms 60th birthday is a huge milestone, i would like something really special, my sister is taking her on holiday to the isle of white as her birthday present, how can i top that? Well i cant really, but i have to give it a go. I'm thinking of throwing a little surprise house party with just immediate family all planed for when she finishes work, but i still need a present. i have this afternoon stumbled across the idea of getting my mom a personalised gift from Eternal Impressions they look amazing.
My nieces 16th is also a big milestone, what do you get a 16yr old, feel like forever since i was 16.
My parents anniversary and mothers day on the same day, great double trouble!! We are going to see Birds of a feather at the theatre on march 24th me my mom and dad, so that's something, but they brought there own tickets and i brought mine so not exactly a present from me really.
And finally and most importantly my lovely little mans 2nd birthday. (sob, the time has flown) what do you get the boy who literally has everything, OK maybe a little exaggeration but he does have alot of things. I don't really want to buy more toys, were taking him to the zoo the day after his birthday but he still needs a gift.
My question to you lovely readers is, please help me, what should i buy?!
If you have any ideas at all let me know, any good sites you think i might see something on send me the link, i need all the help i can get.
Ooo and on a random note, anyone got a really good recipe for a lemon cake? i love lemon, and have a few left over from pancake day so thought i might give one a go at the weekend :)
