It is so much better to give than receive...

And it's what's on the inside that counts, right? Well, sometimes the outside can be pretty fun too. My sister-in-law Nikki's birthday is this weekend. Look what fun is all wrapped up ready for her.


She always asks for a giftcard, but I never think that is enough. So, I always head out shopping to fill a goodie bag for her. Inside she will find fun stuff like socks, and notebooks, and lip gloss. Inside the little box above is a pair of adorable earrings.

I love to wrap presents. I've been that way since I was little. I know many of you out there are fans of the Dollar Tree. Well, you must know then that it is the best place to find fun wrapping stuff. Everything above was purchased there yesterday, including those fun felt flowers. I was practically jumping up and down when I found the bag and box that matched.

I wish I could send a fun present to all of you out there. You are such gifts to me.

My word she's lucky. I think it's the way you offer the gift that makes the gift. VERY CUTE. I'm hoping the felt flowers are at our Dollar Tree. I'll find out TODAY!

Have a great day.

What a wonderful gift. I would not want to open it! I would leave it as is, to look at and smile, and remember my friend. It's really beautiful.

Gesh, I wish you were my SIl.!!!

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. I love to meet fellow bloggers who have alot of the same interest as I. It looks beautiful where you live. Love your Pink Dogwood. I had one once, but it didn't survive when my son accidently ran over it with the 4-wheeler being silly one day. He propted it up like I wouldn't motice, I didn't until it started turning brown with dying leaves. Silly child. Enjoyed my visit here and signed up to your following button. See ya next time, Shanda
