Balloons are the new flowers!
Turns out you can buy happiness!
Sending flowers has gotten to be an expense that feels like when I put a downpayment on my first apartment…and that was an apartment! I love sending flowers but I am always looking for something that says ‘I thought about you for more that 10 seconds’ and doesn’t leave me questioning my financial future!!!
Last week one of my best friends (and the creative director at my firm, coincidence? Not at all!) sent me a dozen bright pink balloons just because! It gave me a case of the “Zooey Deschanels”, all things cool, bright, and freakin’ adorable! I had to share the idea with all my fellow comrades in the army of goodwill gift senders.
Here is the best part…she got them from our local grocery store….for 10 dollars.
You can’t send a daisy to someone for 10 bucks these days but you can purchase a bucket load of floating joy and that’s a feeling that you can’t buy for a million bucks! Your peeps will know that you think they are worthy of a little helium and a bit of the Deschanels!
