Warnings, those are good things yes? It's not so much a girly post... but well a post about a present for a girl. I've finished my nieces etsy birthday orders. Four lotions, two bars of soap, and a sugar scrub. I hope she will like the things I got her. These are all etsy purchased items, in a pail that I bought as part of easter clearance at work. I was calculating, and a rough estimate? I spent around $35.00 on her altogether. Doesn't seem like much does it? I was going to get her another bar of soap with money inside (etsy sellers have them) but decided against it. I know that she used the last bar of soap with money inside enough to get the money out. I asked her if she's spent it yet and she says "not yet." It was only one dollar. I dont' know why she hasn't spent it, or maybe she just didn't hear me right when I asked. Either way, I guess I won't go that route again. Well one girl down, another to go. My grandmother's birthday is only four days after my niece's. Oh and she hasn't let me forget it either. Pictured : Gifts I got my niece. Let me know if you want to know any store names etc... Side note : RIP Prince.

Thanks. It's still a few weeks yet. I may end up giving it to her after her birthday, it all depends on when I see her next versus when / where her birthday will be.

That is a very nice present and now you have to figure out what to get your grandmother.

She isn't always easy to shop for. My grandmother, that is.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Is she one of those ladies that has everything?

@Marcyaz Yes, she does have pretty much everything. At Christmas I just get her a ponisettia. I thought about getting her some silk flowers for her Birthday, or maybe a gift card to one of the catalogs she likes to order from.

I gave her the gifts on May 1st. Her Birthday was the second, but we weren't going to see her until after her Birthday as they aren't doing a proper party this year. She really loved the gifts.

I am sure you would not forget her birthday anyway but I would pretend I had and see what her reaction is!

Oh I know her very well, she'd feign indifference but then later ask me how could I have forgotten.

Aww it is nice you part thought into the gifts. We just give gift vouchers now or money!

I will probably end up giving a gift voucher to my nephew. I tend to do that with people to whom I have no idea what to get. I usually end up giving my niece money or a gift card, but this year she's turning ten and expressing interest in more girly stuff. I think I've made a safe bet with this, and atleast from now on if I get her something like this I know it will be a safe bet. That nephew I was talking about? He'll be 16 but hasn't expressed any interest in cars.

Handcrafted soap and they look like their organic or natural products. I would love to receive those too.

All from etsy. I'm not so sure that any of them can really be called organic, but it's naturally derived items nonetheless.

I hope so. She'll be ten this Birthday and she's really into lotions and sweet smelling products. I asked her what kind and let her surf through etsy with me to see what she liked and didn't like. I told her I wasn't promising her anything. I think she'll be surprised with the quantity.

She better! hahah. I'm gonna suggest she keeps all of her little lotions / soaps in it to keep things de - cluttered. She shares a bathroom with her brother, and this way she can get to her things easier.
