Ashley’s birthday is several months away, but it’s never too early to start planning. I really like to give her things that she needs, even if she doesn’t know it yet. She appreciates this immensely.
I tend to pick a birthday theme for my gifts. Last year it was all about blogging. This year, I want to mix it up a bit and take it in a different direction.
If you read the blog, you know that Ashley is
totally obsessed with mildly enjoys all things celebrity. One of her very favorites is Ryan Gosling. When his name is mentioned she gets glassy eyed and weak in the knees. She desperately wants him to save her life among other plans she has for him.
Now, I considered taking her to Hollywood or New York, hurling her out into traffic, and hoping he comes along to save the day, but that seems risky, you know? But what could I do to make sure I come up with the best Ryan Gosling-esque gift ever?
Why, just head to Pinterest, and search for “Ryan Gosling one of a kind”, of course!!!
Feast your eyes on this:
Pinterest Nightmare #472: Hey Girl, Soft Sculpture Ryan Gosling Mini Bust
You’re speechless, right?
It’s hard to tell which one is the movie star and which one is the sculpture.
I’m thinking it would be hard to do better than this. She could proudly display it on a kitchen shelf, or on her mantle, or maybe even lay it on her pillow next to her head at night.
It’s not that expensive at $34.99–not for that level of realism and workmanship. It’s described as being made of 100% wool, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there isn’t some dryer lint and a touch of cat hair in there especially in the sweater area.
My only concern is that it is TOO perfect. What if she becomes obsessed with it and insists on bringing it to Starbucks whenever we go? How will I ever top this present in years to come?
So, I need some help! I’m leaving you with one last photo of the mini bust that might help you render your verdict in the comment section below.
Should I be saying, “Oh, Pinterest. No…just no” like every other Pinterest Nightmare? Or…should I consider it a match made in heaven?
