50th Birthday Gift to Remember

Looking for a memorable birthday gift for the person who appears to have everything?  Check out this creative bag of delights sure to bring a smile to any recipient

I celebrated my 50th Birthday at the end of May. Everyone knows that birthdays are a celebration of life. It’s your day. Birthdays are also a time for other people to share in your life. It’s a time to reminisce over treasured moments you’ve shared, or how you met. This year, Jessica asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told her “a white cake from Publix with buttercream frosting and ten minutes on the couch with a fork.” I was beyond thrilled, when friends dropped by On Point to celebrate and share my very special day.

Seeing everyone was gift enough, but, I can’t help but mention the creativity that went into this gift from dear friend and ghost blogger, Ashley Grant (CHECK OUT “The Famous Ashley Grant” blog).

Ashley filled a bag with items she had collected and attached meaningful sentiment to each one.

I wanted to give you a gift with meaning so here’s what I came up with. Each item in your gift bag has a meaning attached to it.   Love you.  Happy Birthday and Happiness Always – Ashley (Famous) Grant 2017

When you are searching for the perfect gift for that person who appears to have everything, remember that it is often the simple things in life which are the most treasured. Often the best gift, is just being there for a shared moment, a warm smile, a treasured story, and of course plenty of buttercream frosting!

Thanks to everyone who shared my amazing 50th Birthday with me.

I love you all-
