Wrapping paper and boxes

I need to go find paper and wrap presents for tonight. My daughter in law has her birthday today. I believe she is thirty eight. She has two daughters with close birthdays so I will gift them all tonight. We are taking the whole family plus the baby sitting child to dinner. I bought birthstone earrings for the girls and will also give them some Amazon gift cards. I bought a paraffin spa for my daughter in law, and some plastic covers for her hands. I will give her Amazon as well. I do not always do a big deal for them. I miss my own kids birthdays more often than I hit them. This is amusing to me that I know more what to get for the girls. Maybe I should give my son some gift cards as well.

We had family pictures done at Christmas. This is my son's family, and I have similar of my daughter and her family.

Some people seem much easier to buy for than others.

I have a hard time for adults.

@GardenGerty I find teenage kids the worst and usually resort to gift cards.

@JudyEv I add Amazon gift cards to their gifts, but not enough to spoil them.

It was nice. I get on well with the daughter in law. The girls do not really relate to us much at all. They were tweens when they met us. Fun to watch them grow.

maybe the girls could help you with your kids gifts. We often help gram shop for mom and dad

The girls have not really connected with us. I may ask them at Christmas though and see what they think.

@GardenGerty getting them involved could be fun for you both and help with connecting to them

The gifts you have got seem great. I usually have plenty of bottle bags and wrapping paper but forget to use gift bags which I always think are a nice touch.

It is sad, as I know I have some great gift bags hidden away somewhere.

It was a good meal. We do not get together as often as we should.

The parrafin spa will be a big hit, I'm sure! And most girls love birthstone jewellery...

I am saving for a new one for myself. I wore one out over the years.

Don't you think it is because it is easier to buy for females than males? Anyway Happy Birthday to everyone and have a good time and a wonderful birthday dinner. Very nice looking family by the way.

My son basically gets what he wants when he wants it. But yes, he does not wear jewelry and makeup.

Gift cards are an easy out, and are usually greatly appreciated!

This family is a family of shoppers, so yeah, the gift cards are easy.
