Hard To Buy For Birthday

 I have a problem.
I have a boy.
He's very great,
BUT
he is very hard to buy for,

His birthday is this week.
BUT
he is very hard to buy for. 

If being hard to shop for was an olympic sport
he would have MULTIPLE gold medals.

See my problem. 

Thankfully I found a solution. 


He got one BIG gift for Christmas/ Birthday ( a yeti cooler which apparently can survive a bear attack or something…) but I couldn't stomach the fact that he wouldn't have anything to open for his birthday so I came up with the fun idea of the 7 days of Birthday!


Each day he gets to open a different gift coordinating with how many days are left until his actual birthday! He has had so much fun opening his gifts and I have had just as much fun putting it all together!

This would be so great for dads or brothers or sons or really ANYONE. Sometimes lots of little stuff with some thought behind it makes for a FABULOUS gift!

Hope this gives someone an idea for a tough boy to buy for!
Only 365 now until I have to think of something for the hardest boy in the world to shop for!!

Happy Tuesday!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
This is SUCH a good idea.
Why didn't you post this in November when I needed it? ;)
Adam is SO hard to shop for - though he claims he's not. Whatever!

And a guy at work yesterday was talking about those Yeti coolers...he made me watch the video and everything. Intense!

xo!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! We are apparently a lot alike.. we are both teachers (Well I'm student teaching) and we both have boys in our lives who like Yeti coolers. My fiance got one for Christmas this year and I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about a cooler. He has even purchased some long sleeved t-shirts and visors with the Yeti logo on them. Obsessed. I can't wait to read more on your blog!!

I just found you through your comment on Ashley's blog, and I'm excited. I love finding other teacher's blogs! Even better that you also teach middle school! Yay!

My hubby is also super hard to buy for. This idea could be very fun for me!
