7 Unique and Affordable Personalized Gift Ideas for My Brother (and Maybe Yours Too!)

July is my brother’s birth month. And when it comes to birthday, I always remember my birthday a few years ago when he was still a small boy. He made me a bracelet and left me a card wishing me happy birthday and apologizing as he couldn’t buy me anything for the birthday gift.

I literally cried when I received it, because I think that was probably better than any purchasable gift.

However, when the other way around, buying gifts for my brother is not always easy as I’m not as creative as he is. Like, I swear to God that the DIY skill God gives to my family, it’s been only given to my mom and my brother and not to the others. Not my dad, me or my sister. 😛

But then, I love the fact that nowadays, there are so many options to give personalised gifts without having to be someone who’s creative on my own. It’s personal and memorable, something that my loved one will keep because it means something to them.

So, here’s a list of unique and affordable personalized gift ideas that I’ve got for my brother, that you can also use for yours! 😉

If You’re One of These 4 Passenger Types, Just Know That You’re Probably A Pain in the Ass for Someone at the Airport!

Back in the days, just like pretty much all students in International Relations, I was also looking into the opportunities to work in the high politic sector like in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or embassies. In Indonesia, you need to pass some certain tests to get a position in the ministry as a civil servant. And by the time I graduated, the tests got postponed for some reasons.

So, just like pretty much everyone who just graduated from college, I had to bury my dreams and get some back-up. And for this, I chose the aviation industry dealing with customer service.

I thought this must have been not so hard. I only had to deal with people and as a bonus, I would get to relocate and even better some staff discount for airfare.

Mid-Year Flashback to This Year’s Resolution (2018)

It’s early of July, which means that we’ve just past the first half of 2018.

Before I started running this blog last year, I used to blog on Tumblr and just like probably most of you, I usually post new year’s resolution every year. In addition, I will use some time after June to take a glance at my resolution and see whether it’s a success or a failure by mid-year. So to speak, that’s what I’m gonna do on this post.

Earlier this year, I’ve shared with you some of my goals to achieve this year. That includes things like my health problem and commitment issue. Now that I’ve mentioned it, I’m looking at myself while at the same time laughing at it too.
