impersonal gift cards? no more!

When all else fails {time/ideas}, there is always the trusty fallback of gift cards. My younger brother is a poor college student and loves nothing more than eating anything besides ramen noodles. By purchasing a few craft store items, I think the gift went from a 2 to a 10.

Fun, yes? Gift card to a chinese restaurant. Chopsticks. Take out box. Paper fortune cookies. Clever fortunes. Yummy Happy Birthday. {I think I had more fun with it than he did}

Too cute! Maybe I should send something like this to my brother who is in college too. He would get a kick out of it.
