Sending a Special Gift To a Loved One

What do you buy for a sister’s 40th birthday that lives overseas? I want it to be a special gift as you only turn 40 once, but of course it can’t really be breakable and something that is allowed to fly to that country.

It’s gonna be weird not seeing my sister on such a special birthday, it was the same a few years back when I had my 30th. We are very close, always have been but it’s hard when you live over 3000 miles apart in different time zones. When we do see each other we catch up as if we saw each other only yesterday.

What does a birthday party mean to you?

For me a birthday party is a chance to get family and friends together, to celebrate. Last year it was my mother-in-law’s 70th and we put on a little surprise afternoon tea party for her.

The Importance Of ‘You Time’

Even with all the advances made by great minds, technology and the internet – family life hasn’t got much easier. In fact, it might be a little bit tougher these days thanks to the expectations placed on the shoulders of parents across the globe. All the little gadgets and apps we can use certainly help, but they don’t soften the blow much at all. Work as a parent is tough and that’s not all.
