Getting out of Hostel to Buy birthday gifts Was a Fun for Us

Our hostel life was full of fun and color. Though we had to abide by stringent disciplines but this did not make an obstacle on the way of making merriment on occasions within the four walls of the campus. One such occasion was birthday celebration that we enjoyed the most. We used to save a chunk of our pocket money to buy birthday gifts.

The collection used to be a meager amount but we considered it enough at that time. Once the money got collected, we flocked to the market. But at first, we had to take permission from our headmistress and it was almost who would bell the cat like situation for us. Once we were allowed to go out on a short leave for buying birthday gifts, we had a feeling of birds which flew out of cage in search of freedom and flying high in the sky. Gift items were galore and we used to get flummoxed over what to buy. Some of the birthday gifts tantalized us but it was beyond our purchasing limit. We used to console each other murmuring the proverb ‘grapes are sour’.

We scouted a lot through the market within a very short time span. Once we took our pick from the strewn items of variant birthday gifts, we used to haggle a lot over it. We never forgot to tell the shop owner to wrap our gifts in a colorful packet to make it appealing. After buying birthday gifts it was time to get back to the hostel. With heavy heart, we returned to the cage.

Put Your Thoughts into the Engagement Gifts – it’s the Thought that Counts

Your best friend is getting engaged, or maybe your cousin has found his life partner whose finger he wants to adorn with a sparkling engagement ring; from your end, it’s the time to buy the appropriate engagement gifts to present the couple with.

Gifts can vary with the relationship between you and the people being engaged.  The kind of engagement gifts you would be giving your friend will not match the kind of gift you will give your cousin or colleague.

Some safe engagement gifts include photo frames, jewelry, a pack of CDs containing movies that either of the couple loves, music CD collection, books and novelties.

If you don’t know the couple or any of them personally, you can consider gift cheques.  If they love to travel (who doesn’t?), gift them two tickets to a romantic resort.

Engagement gifts don’t have to be pricey.  It’s the thought that counts. If you can put your thought into designing something beautiful and make a present out of it, you’ll actually be giving the most precious gift of all.

Novelty items, household appliances, and gift cards can also be excellent engagement gifts.

Personalization anytime rocks, if you could personalize the gift with the recipient’s name engraved on it or if you could get the date of his/her engagement carved on the surface of the item, that’ll bring the sweetest and the most genuine smile on the person’s face; though it has to be checked if the item is engravable.

Happy Gift Giving!
