@Helstrong: Hello KU friend! πŸ™‚ I got mine a gift card to a local salon so she could get either a mani or pedi, it was something she wouldn’t do for herself but enjoyed. πŸ™‚

Have fun!

I’m so jealous! We don’t have ESPNU and so we don’t have the game to watch, ESPN online is where I’m at. Grrr. I’m thinking I should upgrade our cable package for Feb/March……..

We got sent home from work at noon today, I’ll be surprised if we get off work tomorrow though. Where I work we have a contract with SRS that if they’re open, we’re open. It’s a good thing, but my hub is a student and I’d just love to have a day at home with him and the puppies!

  I wasn’t sure if I should comment on this thread…I’m a Mizzou grad, and a diehard fan ;-).

  Something that I received once was a Scentsy. It’s this thing that uses candle wax bricks and melts them with a lightbulb. It’s similar to a candle warmer.

 

  They have other styles, too! I’m also a fan of gift cards, or nice things that I wouldn’t necessarily get myself (like a comfortable robe, a nice set of lotions, etc.).

  Good luck!

@Helstrong: I hope I get off work as well, doubt it’ll happen though. *sigh. πŸ˜›

 

@keepsmiling19: HA! No worries, as long as you don’t say anything too offensive πŸ˜‰ My hub went to KSU for a while, we have a fun rivalry πŸ™‚ That’s a cute idea though, might be a good option for my boss’s gift too…I’ll have to keep that one in mind! πŸ™‚

@KansasPrincess11: I’ll do my best :-). One of my coworkers went to KU, so we have a good time teasing each other! During football season, I tell her that I won’t be too mean to her, because I know basketball is right around the corner :-). My cousin is a KSU grad…he gets no mercy, because they can’t do anything right ;-).

I got a Mizzou one of those and I love it! They have a bunch of really good scents. I’m thinking about getting some of the smaller ones as bridal party gifts. We’ll see how the budget pans out.

@keepsmiling19:Hahahaha, SO true. I love watching the KSU games though, Frank Martin is HI-LARRRIOUS. It’s funny b/c I get a lot of flack from his family (HUGE ksu fans) because I’m a KU fan and KU fans are ‘so mean’ (btw I’ve NEVER said anything rude to any of them) and so we’ve tried just avoiding the subject around his family. I think the super-fans for all schools get a bad reputation (whether it’s KU, Mizzou, KSU, Ohio…blah blah). Anywho haha…that’s my soap box πŸ™‚

@Helstrong: HAHA! One of my friends made his pouty face picture her profile picture. She said “Yeah, I’d be upset too if my team didn’t show up to the game” hahahaha

Wait… your only going to spend $20-$30 on your Maid/Matron of Honor after she is hosting YOUR bridal shower?? I think you may need to up your budget. No offense but your Maid/Matron of Honor is throwing an entire party for you with her money…

@dfurst: woah woah woah. I’ve never heard of a bride giving her Maid/Matron of Honor a gift for hosting the bridal shower. While the idea is very nice and generous of OP, it’s certainly not mandatory. I’m assuming OP is also going to her Maid/Matron of Honor gift to give at the rehearsal dinner, that is normally the thank you for throwing the showers and participating.

So OP, I think the salon idea was nice. Or a bottle of wine?

@Helstrong: I had to throw you a bone! It’s only fair…your old football coach threw us one in 2009, essentially giving us the win in KC :-). Seriously though, I do love the Scentsy products!

@KansasPrincess11: I completely agree! We have some family friends who are diehard Nebraska fans. It gets a little rough when we would meet up in football :-). As long as it’s all in good fun, I see no harm!

Good luck shopping for presents! I’m excited to see what you decide!
