Justin, age 9, wanted video games for his birthday. I went to TOYS R US to find them, but got so mystified by the choices — and by the various ways they could be played — I gave up and opted for a simple gift card.
To make it a little more exciting, I put the GIFT CARD in a wallet.
Then I found a sandwich container with MINIONS on the front. I put the GIFT CARD in the WALLET. I put the WALLET in the SANDWICH CONTAINER. And then I wrapped it all up.
It was way more exciting that way. Justin liked it too, and I found out later he asked his Daddy to take him shopping minutes after I gave him the gift.
Today I got this beautifully hand-written letter from him. Since they’re not teaching handwriting in the schools anymore, this is even more of a treasure.
