All Out of Ideas

I have absolutely no idea what I want for my birthday. I’d like better health, but I don’t think anyone can wrap that up in a box for me, so I’m completely stumped for ideas. I recently read that money can buy happiness. Studies have shown that people feel happier when they spend money on activities rather than things, so I’m trying to incorporate activities into my list. I used this same approach last Christmas. Rather than receiving jewelry and clothes, of which I already have plenty, I received hockey tickets and gift cards for places like Dream Dinners. As a result my hubby and I had quite a few special moments together. But now that I asked for all of those things at Christmas I have no idea what to include for my birthday….

It’s becoming harder and harder to come up with a list. Any ideas?

Spa certificates are my absolute favorite gift idea. I buy them for all of my friends. It's something you rarely buy yourself, but something that every girl loves. Great idea!

Dance lessons! Salsa or swing are both fun!

Is there anything you need for your beach house? Board games, outdoor games, or beach furniture might all be nice gifts if needed. I asked for a gc for a local spa for my bday last year. Massages are a luxury for me, as are occasional manicure/pedicures.
