My sister-in-law is a bit tough to shop for. She is entirely her own person, very outgoing, has a unique style and approach to life. I know she loves to journal, but wasn’t completely satisfied with the thought of just getting her a book of blank pages. I was browsing through the store at the Nasher Sculpture Center, exploring all the books and cleverly fun items they have, and came across a book that was just perfect. It’s entitled Everything That Can Happen in A Day and the title pretty much says it all. It’s a book that has a kind of “challenge” on each page, from things that just you will notice to things that are kind of an interesting psychological experiment. A sample of the challenges:
“Leave a bouquet of flowers in a taxi for the next person.”
“Locate the exact opposite side of the earth from where you are now. Make a photograph pointing to this location on a map. Hang this on your wall to remind you where the farthest distance away from you on earth is.”
“In a public place, line up ten oranges and leave them.”
“Spend an entire day not knowing what time it is.”
The book is $27.95 at the Nasher Sculpture Center Store. I also got her a pen that has a 7-year ink supply to use to take notes in the book ($7.95). That brings this gift’s total to $35.90.
