Happy Friday, y’all!!
My 31st birthday was on Sunday, and what a great day it was. I’m told that I’m the “girl who has everything,” but I disagree. I’ve had the same responses for the past couple of years — books, gift cards, and picture frames. While I do have a lot of books and frames, is there wrong with wanting more? There’s just no such thing! Below are my top four favorite birthday gifts! Take a look and see how awesome they are!
Gift cards from B & N are the perfect gift for anyone! Who can do wrong with a gift card from the world’s greatest bookstore? (My hubby might disagree because of the amount of books we have in our house, but I just can’t help myself!) Having a gift card is the best gift to give a writer because not only do they get to pick out what they want, if gives you the opportunity to pick out something you don’t already have.
I was shopping with my mom one day when I saw this, and I loved it! All writers need pens and a USB, which is also known as a universal serial bus, (thanks, babe – ha, ha, ha!), so this is a necessary item. If you’re on the go a lot and work with a laptop during the week, but want to stay home and write on your desk top, then why not have a pen with a USB? I know I’ll be using this a lot more when my office is ready! Now, if I could only not misplace this pen. (Wish me luck on that one).
What would I do without my iPad? Really, I don’t know how I lived without it! I read a lot, especially when I’m reading for a review. When I’m home I read on the couch, and I before I go to sleep I read in bed. Many of you know how reading on the iPad can be difficult. Well, this is the perfect solution! It’s an amazing difference at how comfortable it makes using the iPad! Try it, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
You might remember what my husband gave me last year for my 30th birthday. (HERE is that blog post). Well, for the second year in a row, my husband gave me something that I love, love, love — LOVE! Here’s a picture of it, but trust me, the picture doesn’t do it justice! (The picture doesn’t show that the phone case is my signature purple!) It’s simply perfect!
Well, as you can see, I had a great birthday! Here’s to being 31, and so far, it’s not too shabby!
If you’re a writer, what are some of your favorite gifts you’ve received for your birthday?
