Treasury Tuesday: Birthday

May 17, 2011 at 12:01 am Leave a comment

My brother’s birthday was last week.  He told me not to get him anything since he never got around to getting something for me this year.  That wasn’t an option- gift giving is too much fun!  So, to make things easier for him I put together a treasury of potential birthday gifts I’d like to receive.  I now feel terrible for anyone who has ever had to give me a gift!  I knew I was terrible at shopping for clothing/shoes, but I didn’t realize exactly how hard it would be to think of something I wanted but didn’t have.  On the one hand, I don’t want much that isn’t practical, and it would be boring if he got me more yarn or a set of multi-color grading pens for my birthday.  On the other hand, I buy most things that I want.  I decided I wanted a sea glass necklace after hearing that it was someone’s most treasured possession, so I ordered one.  I regularly buy yarn and just bought a set of multi-colored pens!  After a couple hours of browsing and a good dose of soul searching, here’s what I came up with.
