1. I bought my little nephew an animal at their local zoo. I adopted a snow leopard in his name. The zoo sends a certificate and a stuffed animal and I found him a book and another little toy to go with it.
2. I bought my ex-wife a full day spa package with massage. I wouldn’t normally had spent so much ($300+) but she is the mom to my two awesome daughters and she had a horrible summer fighting and kicking cancer’s nasty ass. I felt she deserved a day.
3. My sister had a shirt that she loved for over a decade. Two years ago, our mom cut it up to put it into a baby clothes quilt to give as a present. My sister was super upset but way too nice to say anything. You can’t even find pictures of this shirt online, so buying it was out of the question. I spent 20 hours remaking the design, and currently I’m working on transferring it and distressing it to make it look and feel exactly like that old shirt did.
