Whenever I receive an invitation, I always look for a notification of gift registry. Naturally, I want to gift the celebrant with something he/she would like & appreciate. Cast-off gifts, or worse, re-gifted gifts break my heart so I want to make sure that what I give will please the person who receives it.
With that in mind, I advised ate to register for gifts. I want her to value the gifts she will receive from her friends & have them as keepsakes of their friendship -not leave them unused. Sure, I can buy her the things she registered for, but they would mean a whole lot more coming from people she loved, given on a very special occasion.
This afternoon, I took her to Rustan’s. Ate has very expensive taste! @_@ (I wonder who she got that from? :P)
She is such a kikay girl now! She likes make-up, accessories, clothes, shoes, BAGS.. everything that would make her dear mother bankrupt! :P
Since benefit opened, she’s been raving about it. But I didn’t buy her anything from there yet because then, she wouldn’t have anything to look forward to anymore -or open, when her birthday comes. Plus, Christmas is just around the corner, so I’ve been stopping myself from buying them too much things.
She went ape$hit kanina when she browsed the super cute items from benefit. I had to restrain myself from buying her the things she touched with delight, or there would be nothing else left for the registry haha! :P
|With the gift registry staff, getting ready to take notes! ;)|
|First stop. Benefit. Of course.|

I told her to just stick to one brand if she wants to collect all.
Good thing she listened to her momma. <3
