Embarrassing gift for the aging? Hmm. Granny pants or knickers.
Happy birthday! I just finished reviewing Sisters Red and those earrings are to die for. Thanks for the great giveaway.

- Embarrasing present? I think it will be any type of lingerie that is way personal or some kinky gifts!


Birgit said...

Ah to be 31 again *sigh*! Anyway, where was I? Right ... I'm stalking you on both GFC and Networked Blogs!
And, (un)fortunately I never received and embarrassing birthday prezzies :-D though what would certainly be embarrassing to me are gifts that, uhm, make up for the fact that I'm single but keep certain female body regions "happy"! There, I didn't even use a dirty word describing what I mean, hahaha!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you have an amazing day. :)

The most embarassing birthday present I've received are grannie undies, from my grandma. Apparently on every occasion, the only thing she likes to give me are those & socks. I guess that's why we don't get along. LOL!

Hey, great giveaway. Happy Birthday!! Worst birthday gift I got was in high school, it wasn't so much bad I guess as it was just a really bad idea. In high school a friends of mine made me a cupcake in home ec. then put it in my locker with a lit candle....thank god he didn't burn down the school, the cupcake was really good though lol.

Awesome giveaway! Happy Birthday! The worst birthday present I ever received was an elmo toy like on my 16th birthday from my now ex-best friend. It was really embarrassing considering 1) I'm not a kid anymore, 2) her little sister picked out the present, and 3) I hate Elmo and never in my life said I loved him. *face palm* Haha. It was the worst gift ever.

Happy Birthday in advance and thanks for the giveaway.

I don't know what I would do if someone gives me a vibrator for a gift, probably dig a hole and bury myself, deep!

Mimi Valentine said...

Awww, this is such an amazing giveaway, Karina!! :) Thank you so much for all of those awesome choices and I hope you have the most amazing birthday!

I don't know what the most embarrassing b-day gift for me was LOL! Maybe the pack of underwear my BFF gave to me one year? But only because there were a whole bunch of my guy friends around to see them!!! x)

Hmm the most embarassing birthday present . . that's a hard one, but this one time my two friends got me this really expensive lighter with a fully naked woman on it and gave it to me in class inf ront of everyone . .i was pretty embarassed =/ I remember on my last birthday me and my friend went for a meal and the waiters bought out my cake after dinner and they put the song 'happy birthday' on and everyone else in the restaurant started singing along and clapping while i blew out the candles. I hate when all the attention is on me so i was feeling very self-conscious and embarassed lol!

Hope you have a great birthday and happy christmas!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
