Oh, how I love crossing things off lists!


Just crossed off another item on my 101 Things in 1001 Days list.

#8 Send an anonymous gift

This one was super fun. A coworker of mine has been out of the office recovering from a major operation. I sent her some cheerful flowers and a Get Well balloon--with no name on the card. (Shhh! Don't tell her it was me!)

If someone sent me an anonymous gift, I think it would drive me bonkers trying to figure out who it was from. How would you react to receiving an anonymous gift?

I think it would make my day. Really and truly. That someone out there is thinking about me enough to send something to me.

What a great thing to cross off your list.

I like anonymous gifts.

Wheres mine?

Allison said...

What a sweet girl you are. That was very nice to send flowers to her. I think it would also drive me crazy wondering who it's from.

I would be elated... but curious at the same time. I got surprise flowers from an ex of mine during a rough part of time and I was shocked. It was nice.

Hillary said...

I would go mad trying to figure out who sent it!

Gwen said...

The stress of trying to figure it out might put me back in the hospital.

Meg said...

I'd be totally stoked.
And pissed that I couldn't figure out who it was!

Having received mystery gifts, I can honestly say I love them. Sure, I wonder who sent them, but I love gifties so they made my day!

I received an anonymous gift at work once. I was thrilled at first, and then tortured all day, trying to figure out who it was from. So, I love the idea of getting one (and i'd love to send one), but i'm way too curious in the end.

(The gift ended up being from my supervisor. I finished a huge project so she rewarded me with chocolate.)

That's such a great thing to do!

I think I might assume someone was stalking me though. But that's just me lol

Awww! That's so sweet! I love surprises so it would probably make me really giddy - although I'd think it was probably just the boyf sending me flowers secretly.

Aw, how sweet are you? I love things like this.

And I know that were I to get an anonymous gift, it would drive me crazy not knowing who gave it to me - but I don't think I'd really want to know. I like surprises and mysteries.

I'm so suspicious I would probably assume they were like, trick balloons and send them back.

BUT LOGICALLY i think that's a very cute idea. You should tell her eventually or she'll go crazy! :)
