Birthday Gift Ideas!

Yesterday was my friend Calvin's birthday. A group of us made a list of what he likes and came up these items:

Children's Adhesive Bandages, Disney Princess, Assorted Sizes 20 each,

A Picture of a Rainbow-Vomiting Unicorn,

And a Black Forest Cake!

Goes to show you that even in college, creative gift ideas exist everywhere!

Fortune Cookie For You!

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." ~Oprah Winfrey

Other than the fact that the quote is a chiasmus and Oprah came up with it, I recently received this advice from a fortune cookie at the dining hall. Along with another fortune that told me "Don't panic!" and such, I suddenly wondered what it'd be like to receive a huge fortune cookie with a personalized fortune inside.

From personalized fortune cookies to pictures on oreo cookies, this site has got it all! It's fun and entertaining to watch someone's expression when they receive these gifts because, quite frankly, who'd think to receive a huge fortune cookie for a present?

The Thrifty One's Needs (Part III)

Today's post comes from reading an article from the well-known Times magazine. The World's Longest Yard Sale is obviously a sign of the times but at the same time, it brings ideas to the table. Yard Sales are great for little knick-knacks to give to people. Some people even sell relatively new things at cheaper prices than Amazon or Ebay. I mean, how much more creative can you be than giving a Life-size Darth Vader away to your friend who's a Star Wars fan?
