Birthday Gifts! Big one, little one. The birthday gifts are wrapped in colorful gift wrap and tied with bows! What’s in them? That’s up to you. This is a fun gift that you can, if you want to, personalize by tucking a tiny trinket or photo into the gift boxes. The cover says Happy Birthday and has a laser sketch of a fantastic gift. The inside has popup gifts and ribbons. You can add your own note or signature. Colors vary.
Hope your birthday is popping.
Someone I love was born today.
When I count my blessings, I count you twice.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~William Arthur Ward
Thanks to my mother, not a single cardboard box has found its way back into society. We receive gifts in boxes from stores that went out of business twenty years ago. ~Erma Bombeck
We’ve been friends so long, I’ve forgotten which of us is the bad influence.
Each day is a gift: open it, celebrate, enjoy it.
A bell is not a bell until you ring it / A song is not a song until you sing it / Love was not placed in your heart to stay / Love is not love until you give it away.
“My pottery assistant once made me miniature figures of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford that I keep on my mantel. If there were a fire, I’d sling my husband, Simon, over one shoulder; our dog, Foxylady, over the other and stuff these in my pockets before I ran out the door.”
—Jonathan Adler, husband of Simon Doonan, designer, and author of 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life
“When my husband, Jonny, and I started dating, he made me a pot painted with a heart and my nickname: ‘Truffles.'”
—Simon Doonan, husband of Jonathan Adler, Barneys New York creative ambassador and author of The Asylum: True Tales of Madness from a Life in Fashion
