Colorful top and boyfriend jeans - Gift hunting!

Me and Captain were invited to a birthday brunch of a friend sometime this week and yesterday I met up with my girlfriend N who was also invited, to go scouting for present.  It was tough because first, it was for a man  (always thought that buying gifts for men is tough) and second,  we do not know him well enough (double tough!)

"How about buying him a book?"
"Does he read?" 

"A funny captioned tee!"
"Can he take the humor?" 

"What about perfume?"
"Too personal"

"CD?" 
"What kind?"

It was endless!  So, after going around the mall and cracked our brains into peices, we decided to get him an eco mug that he could take to work to keep his coffee hot (yes, he drinks coffee, that much we know!) and a set of soap from L'occitane (how can anyone not like soap from L'occitane, right?). 

That's it, next time we get him vouchers!



























On another note, looking at these shots I think the twins are getting better with the camera!  If you have been following their progress, what do you think? : )

  12. The mug is a great idea! Exactly what I would have picked. I've done it for a girl to. Only I added gourmet hot chocolate mix and some cookies and I put it all in a basket. Presto! Add some fancy tissue paper and a bow and it looks expensive! I've been looking all over for your email. Can I send you a private MSG? By te way loveing the bright colors...getting inspired.

  19. haha, totally agree! Presents for men are so hard to fine, easiest is if he has a hobby or something that he's really addicted to, otherwise it's pretty tough!
    I like your look, the colours make it really fresh and perfect for spring, and the heels give it the chic touch.
