What's your platinum-level gift?

I received a text saying – I MADE IT! from my 16 year old cousin. I knew immediately that she had made the dance team. I was very excited for her and wanted to get her a congratulatory gift. So when I got home, I asked her what she would like. I gave her some options: a platinum level, gold level, silver level, and bronze level gift. She thought hard for a moment and began to tell me her “leveled” gifts.

Platinum level = An IPod or any MP3 player
Gold level = A pair of jeans
Silver level = A promise to come to a least one performance
Bronze level = I don’t know I can’t think of anything else

Since Christmas has just passed, I began to wonder what gifts I would have liked to receive. Here is my “leveled” wish list:

Platinum level = The Kindle
Gold level = An IPod
Silver level = An hour massage at Spa Sydell
Bronze level = Bath and Body’s New Fragrance – Black Chamonille

As I was thinking of these items, it was great to see that “technically” I could buy all these gifts myself. However, I’m really trying to get out of debt and don’t NEED any of the above gifts. I really can’t rationalize buying anything, other than a few Bath and Body products.

Sooooooooo, what's your platinum-level gift?

My platinum level gift would definitely be a new car or a Wii. The car is a much greater priority, but the Wii is just a tad bit cheaper. Hope Santa brought you something on your list.

My platinum gifts would be a Wii with a Wii Fit, a new laptop, or a part time personal assistant.

This is why I absolutely love the big sis/lil sis dynamic duo....you both have such big dreams/wish lists. My favorite is the personal assistant.
