Christmas confusion...

This year B's siblings decided it would be a great idea to exchange names....thank goodness, we have only suggested this for the past 2 years! Anyway, I have my future sister in law that is 28, and hasn't given me many ideas!!! So anyway I am being proactive this Christmas season and trying to get all the shopping done before Thanksgiving. I know it's only a week away and I probably won't achieve my goal, but a girl can always dream!



Anyway, we have to spend around $75...that's a while other story, I would have though $25, but others did not like that figure....glad they have tons of money to burn, we do not! So anyway back to my person I am supposed to buy for, well I am at a crossroads as to what to buy. She has said she would like an ipod cover, ok great idea, I think it's costs about $25. Then I came across this little number at Pottery Barn and purchased it in apple green with her new initials. She is marrying my brother in law in 2009. So here they are...let me know what you think!!




Yay or nay???

I think thats super cute..I know when I was in the middle of wedding planning all I could think about was my new last name/initials! Plus that is the type of gift you might see but probably wouldnt spend the money on it to get it monogrammed yourself...so its a nice treat to receive it for Christmas!

As long as you're sure she's not keeping her maiden name, I say yay!

I'm with you, I think $25 in these rough economic times would've been sufficient. I say, fi you find a great gift and it is within the budget, get it! Who cares if it is $74.99 or 24.99? If is a cool gift that should be all that matters. By setting such a high limit the empahsis is put on the amount as opposed to the sentiment. This year, my parents and I are not exchanging gifts. Instead we're spending all our money on my younger siblings, for whom it is still important to have presents, etc.

I should clarify the bags themselves are $35, not $75, I would never spend that on comsetic bags!

I agree those are cute!! I love getting my shopping done early.

I think they are adorable. I would have loved one of those. I still can't get over the $75 price limit-gasp. If Mr. McB's family said that, I'd be screwed!
