Congrats Graduates 2017

My facebook is loaded with tons of pictures about commencement exercises and moving up posts. Almost all of the students or batch 2016-2017 has ended their term and their parents are more than proud to tell and show that their kids passed and successfully completed a course of their kids’ education. Nothing beats the happiness any parent can feel than to see their children go up the stage to get their diploma.

The hard work they put into waking up early to go to their class, doing their homework, reviewing for their exams or recitation and just keeping up listening to their teachers’ teachings are reasons to celebrate. Every student who passed should celebrate and give themselves a pat on their shoulder for a job well done.

Giving gifts to the graduates is something we need to consider, as it can be their reward. Ask your child what they want as much as possible if they want money, gift or whatever so they can truly appreciate what they receive. You can get them musiciansfriend.com dean guitars if they are keen on music, you can give them budget to spend time with friends like eat out, or buy a new gadget that they always dream.

Time to Celebrate a Debut Party

It was a day that every teenage girl awaits, her 18th debut birthday. It is the time when she is stepping to a more mature age where she can legally vote, drive and do some of the things that she can be allowed to do and have. Just this January, my friend’s daughter celebrated her 18th birthday with a party. At first, the party seems not feasible because of financial constraint but as the date nears, all things come into right places. With a good amount of money on hand, my friend slowly make the party into realization. The party is simple yet meaningful. She got the venue for a good price, and the caterer she got was good and considerate that it gave additional food for the party.

I asked my 2 niece to do the photo coverage and it was my gift for the debutant. They borrowed speakers and microphone that was used during the party. It would have been nice if they can get a top snowball microphone at MF but they have limited budget already so they didn’t bother to get one.

Overall, it was a day for the debutant to shine and be with her family and friends. I’m thankful that I have witnessed the event and see her bloom in becoming a grown up women. Wishing her all the best in life.

Gift Ideas for the Gun Enthusiast in Your Life

If you have someone in your life who enjoys a variety of firearms, then it might be tough to come up with a suitable gift for them. Investing in a new gun can be an expensive endeavor, so what else is there to get them? This guide will help you come up with a few ideas that you might not have otherwise considered, and perhaps give you some inspiration so that you can make your own decision on what to get the special gun enthusiast in your life.

Think Outside the Box
Aside from the gun itself, there are plenty of other accessories that people might not otherwise think about. For instance, it can be difficult to find a good hip holster. As it turns out though, there are plenty of stores that sell accessories that are specifically aimed towards gun enthusiasts. If you’re interested in purchasing a holster, then a shop like Hardcore Gun Holsters can point you in the right direction and provide you with the information you need to make an informed purchase.

Consider Other Related Hobbies
Typically, gun enthusiasts also tend to have other related hobbies. For instance, many gun enthusiasts also tend to enjoy spending time outdoors. If you know that the gun enthusiast in your life enjoys spending time outside, then you might want to pivot away from a gun-centered gift towards something that can generally be enjoyed outside. For instance, other components of hunting gear can be found at many stores geared towards outdoor survival. In addition to finding outdoor survival gear, you might also want to consider finding items that you can enjoy with your loved one together. After all, going out on a hike is much more fun with two people rather than going by yourself.

While there are plenty of options for gifts, the most important thing to remember is to show the person in your life that you care about them. Regardless of what you end up purchasing, the intent will ultimately matter more than the gift itself. Of course, that doesn’t mean that some gifts aren’t more useful than others. As always, use your best judgment and you’ll be sure to find something that you can be proud to gift away for the holidays.
