Choosing a Present that Stands Apart from the Rest

When couples are first engaged, they may register at local stores for household items like towels, bed sheets, pillowcases, and other basics. While these essentials are always well received at weddings and engagement parties, they can get lost in the mix of everything else a couple receives and eventually become meaningless as the couple builds their life together.

It is understandable then, why you might want to select a present that will be unique and unlike anything for which the couple may have registered. You can show the level of thought, care, and time that you put into selecting the right token when you shower the couple with unique presents like handmade crafts, wedding gift baskets, culinary treats, and other mementos chosen just for this occasion.

Finding the Right Basket Online

Anyone can hastily make up a basket of haphazard tokens that may have been selected without a lot of forethought, insight, or care. However, rather than give a jumbled mix of mismatched items, you may instead want a basket that features a centralized theme or flavor. When you shop on the website, you can find baskets that abide by this requirement by featuring items that all match or complement a certain underlying idea.

For example, when you want to toast the couple who is about to exchange vows, you may choose a champagne basket that contains items that complement the flavor of the champagne and also celebrate the occasion. The couple can indulge in both the champagne and the included sweet treats on their wedding night or on their honeymoon.

Likewise, you may want to give the couple some sweet treats that they can enjoy as they make their life together in their new home. You can find baskets that have chocolates, cookies, teas, and more that are perfect for indulging in after a long day at work or on the weekend. The basket itself is reusable so the couple can use it in their kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else they need such a container.

Birthday Dinner

Today, we celebrate Bogs’ 7th birthday and we had our dinner together with Tita Bambi and Kevin. My son wanted a simple dinner and guess what he wanted to have? Well, his favourites, spaghetti, fried chicken and cake! So since it was very easy to make, I made him his favourites and boy was he so happy and could not wait to blow the candles on his cake.

So by 8 pm we all went down and had dinner together. It was nice to eat simple meals with the family and to celebrate Bogs’ birthday without ever having to go broke. In the past, we had always prepared something for Kuya Bogs’ birthday. We would cook some food for a small party in his nursery school, and then have another celebration at home. So that meant a few hundred dollars to spend. We do not mind actually since Bogs is happy, but now that we have to be practical and save, a birthday party is no longer necessary, though I would love to give him one… maybe in the next few years… when we have enough to spend.

So anyway, we all shared the food in the table, ate the cake and had some conversations and since it was a school day the following day, we went back to our suite very full and happy with our birthday dinner. Here’s a snap of Kuya Bogs blowing the candles on the cake!

Happy 7th Birthday Kuya Bogs! Daddy, Mommy and Job love you very much!

First Family Camping (Part 1)

The weekend of August 23 to 25, 2013 was our first family camping. Together with Kevin and Tita Bambi, we all headed to the Yogi Bear Jellystone Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

We were supposed to leave the city by 11 am but we set out at past 1 pm because packing the car took really some time. We did not bring a lot because the trailer which was reserved a couple of months ago was fully furnished. All we needed was food and stuff for barbecue. But because Kevin wanted that we are all comfortable during our camping, he brought lanterns, bug zappers, and other stuff which we actually did not need at all, which eventually took a lot of space in the car. So anyway, as soon as we arrived at the camp site, we checked in and paid the remaining balance. After that, we were led to our trailer and we started setting up. We were all wows at how comfy and nice the trailer was.

Tita Bambi and I started prepping for our first camp dinner and used the kitchen stove and most of the utensils there. We had our dinner at the patio, it was really nice and the food was good. After dinner, we went down to our camp fire and started roasting marshmallows. The little boys were excited to roast their marshmallows and got some sticky and gooey mallows in their faces, fingers and shirts!

Since it was already getting late, I tucked the little boys in bed… the couches can be turned into beds and so with just a few minutes, they were fast asleep. As for the adults, we continued chatting over the camp fire until it was all gone. It was also getting cold, so we bid adieu to our first day of camp. Fun day it was! 🙂
