It is basically a pink basket filled with mostly red goodies - my matryoshka doll, the amigurumis (Big Heart Bunny and Cheeky), a pink scrunchie, 3 red eggs and Hershey's Kisses.
Some of you may wonder why are red eggs included. Honestly, I don't know either :D. Mom used to dye hard boiled eggs on birthdays (mine, my sisters' and dad's) and we each had to have at least one. I miss having those on my birthday, which may seem a little silly because all I had to do was to boil an egg and dye it red if I wished. But I guess it is simply not the same :).
I did a little research on the symbolism behind having red eggs for birthdays and I came across this - "Eggs are symbols of life changes and their round shape is the symbol of harmony and happiness in life. Eggs are dyed red because it is the colour of happiness in the Chinese culture."
Hehe. I'm not at all superstitious, but I think its a rather sweet gift :).And lastly, I bought a plushy throw rug because the birthday girl loves furry things.
That's it from me!
I have a party to attend and a Diwali celebration to check out, and I shall be back soon (I think).
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
