Have not seen each other in years. I got one of my own when I was in fourth year high school, and have used it every Friday for our Physical Education class (which was a lot of fun, as silly as that might sound). I don’t know what came of it, what with the constant moving during those years of my life. It was a long time ago and I know I should be letting go of it now and giving up the hope of ever finding it again, but for some reason, I still can’t. Not with a gorgeous personalized duffle bag on PosyLane which made my missing for it even worse. Augh. We have plans of visiting my mother-in-law during the holidays, so a bag like this could be very useful for packing up our stuff.
We don’t have any students now in the immediate family who lives away from home in order to study, but I’m sure if we have, I’m already planning to give that relative something for Christmas. I usually think of something that the recipient can use, like a sturdy laundry bag to hold all the soiled clothes, waiting for an elder person in the family to wash it on the weekends (hee hee), or a stylish insulated lunch tote which would carry food enough to last the student during the day. I personally think it would make all the difference in the world for someone who is not used to living away from the family the stuff that reminds one of home, so I make it a point to give just that. A piece of home that one can hold on to while he or she is away. Color-coordinated, too, if I could swing it. Haha. It doesn’t hurt for functional stuff to be stylish, does it?
