F's 18th Birthday!

You may have heard me mention my friend F before- well, Friday was her 18th birthday!

Last night was her party, and I thought I'd share with you all a little something I put together for her!

As I mentioned before, she'll be going to college next month, so I decided to put together sort of a "shower gift basket" for her to take to school including a caddy filled with all of the items she'll need.

In the caddy I put:
Shampoo and Conditioner
Cotton pads, cotton balls, and cotton swabs
Nail polish remover
Facial cleanser
Disney Princess band aids
A bar of soap
Two toothbrushes
A tube of  toothpaste
Body wash
A loofah
Toilet-seat covers (personally, my favorite item included!)
Hand sanitizer

I wrapped the caddy up in shrink wrap and tied it with navy blue grosgrain ribbon. I tied a card with a poem on it into the bow.

The poem reads:

I looked up {her school's} colors
And found that they had none
So with blue, orange, pink (even clear!)
I got to have some fun!

I loaded up a caddy
With all that you may need
From nail polish remover to toilet-seat covers
And band aids if you bleed!

I really hope you like this gift
I thought it might be useful
But although I picked out lots of products
I already know you're beautiful!

Sadly, I didn't take any pictures at the party, but the party was a really good time, and I was happy to see that F loved her gift!

I am one away from having 25 followers, so if you're reading and haven't followed yet, do it!

Have a fabulous week!
