For two months (end of Nov-end of Jan) almost everyone in my immediate family has a birthday. I don’t want to be a person that tries to roll Christmas + birthday in to one, but of course that means double the planning. If possible I like to give something meaningful and thoughtful – who doesn’t – but again, it seems as though every 4 years I’m able to pull that off.

This time, I think I really got it right. I started to give bathing suits – or birthday suits, as they are more fun to call – for a few reasons. #1 – most people (I should say girls) enjoy getting one even if they don’t have many opportunities to wear them. #2 – I am really good at buying J.Crew bathing suits on sale. Really. I got the one you see above for $20. Combine my bathing suit buying abilities with my need to buy thoughtful and useful gifts – and voila!

I picked out this lavender suit before Christmas and have been waiting to give it away. Back in November I caved in and bought this card from Rifle Design which I fell in love with as soon as I laid eyes on it’s metallic foil overlay. They go so well together I couldn’t have planned it better.
