Accomplishment Day

Twin is hilarious. He challenges my thought processes all the time and always seems to make me look at things in a new and different way. Tonight at the dinner table, we were chatting about our sister-in-law's upcoming 30th birthday and what we may get her. During said discussion, he said that he wishes no one got birthday gifts. I thought he was saying he didn't want to give birthday gifts anymore - which really is no surprise because he is forever trying to get out of gift-giving - but he was suggesting something different... a new day of gift giving instead of on birthdays.

He was proposing that we surprise those we love with a thoughtful gift on their accomplish days. For Daredevil, he says it was the day of his birth because that was the day that he met Twin. Hah! He said that for some it may be a graduation, a wedding, a job offer or promotion, etc. Twin suggested that gift giving on an accomplishment day would be a better day to surprise a loved one.

Hmm... what do you think? I kind of love this idea. If you know me personally, you know I like to give gifts. Maybe this will be an idea in 2014?!?! You never know. What do you think is your great accomplishment? When do you think you'd get your accomplishment gift if Twin did start doing that? It sure is something to think about.
