Anyway. We went to the mall. She had a gift card for Claire's, one for Sweet Factory and a generic "mall gift card" for any store.
There is a point to this. Thank you for hanging with me this long.
The Sweet Factory. Do you have one of these at your mall? If not, it's a candy store. Just candy. Lots of candy. Sweet candy, sour candy, gummy candy, crunchy candy, chocolate candy. Mix and match candy, candy by the pound.
What kind of deviant mind gives a child a Sweet Factory gift card for her 10th birthday?
Actually, I think it is kind of genius and I'm jealous that I didn't think of it myself. But I am totally claiming this as my own move and guess what the nieces and nephews will be getting for their birthdays henceforth? Candy! Candy, Candy and More Candy!
Do you have a "signature gift" move? In the past, I did cowboy boots for the nieces and nephews, which has always been a HUGE SUCCESS, but that has gotten kind of difficult size-wise as the kids have gotten older. But now? Candy for everyone. Their parents are going to LOVE me.
