It was my girlfriend's birthday/goodbye party this past weekend. We had glorious drinks after drinks at PS7. After swearing off planning things forever, I couldn't resist the chance to organize a group gift for the birthday girl. Over 10 people chipped in to get her something from Louis Vuitton. I used a wrapping paper with a map of the world printed on it and topped it off with a large extravagant satin bow.
Needless to say, I think gifts mean so much more when its a concerted group effort. It carries all the love and good karma from each and every giver.
