I have a friends 22nd Birthday tonight and it is so hard to get her a present. She is one of my friends who has left the student world and has a really great fulltime job so can always buy what she wants. I ended up getting her a friendship inspiration book full of photos and quotes and that way it shows how much I appreciate and love her.
I also got my sister a book for our first pckage swap "The Happiest day of my life" by Gillie and Marc Schattner which is such a cute little inspirational book about living life to the full. She is in the middle of exams at the moment so I hope that it will bring a smile to her face.
"If I were to make a speech in praise of you, in gratitude, in deep affection, you would turn an alarming shade of crimson and try to escape. So I won't. Take it all as said." - Marion C. Garretty
" Only when Harry lives each day of his life as if it's his last can he rediscover the joy in life"
I think books can make such wonderful present because people can treasure them forever and I love writingg little notes on the inside so they can look back and remember what the book meant to them at that time in their life.
