When I tried to take Dad to a Restaurant to Surprise him

Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, singers of songs — Pam Brown

Gifting men is tough. Gifting dads, a million times tougher… its dad after all !!

In May 2019, my brother and I decided to take our parents out for a surprise dinner at a restaurant my dad had wanted to try for a while. We told them the reservation was in a different restaurant which was about in the same area though on a different route.

Dad likes to dress as per the place and the occasion and this time were no different. Unfortunately, we didn’t consider that before telling him about the cover-up restaurant and we did make him change a few times before he got a little annoyed with us. By then Mom figured we were up to something and with her rounds of interrogation, while dad’s figuring what to wear next, got the plan out of us.

Now with everyone appropriately dressed for the restaurant, we set out to get on with the surprise (for dad only!). I was the designated chauffeur for the evening. I obviously took the route to get to where our reservation was. My dad at this point, thinking I took a wrong, long traffic filled route, started with his “dad speech” and I heard to no end about how I have no sense of direction, don’t listen and don’t use technology to gauge traffic. About 20 minutes into driving on the ‘wrong route’ my dad almost lost it. At this point, our secretive family couldn’t hold back any more. It started with me letting out a giggle. My brother joined me and mom followed.

Before his blood pressure could shoot up any further, we told him where we were headed. He laughed out along with us and Guess what he said next “You picked the wrong clothes for the place, what makes you think I am dressed appropriately???” *facepalm*.

As the evening rolled on, I realised just how much dad loved the experience. The bottom line is that regardless of his denial, criticism, and refusals, dads love and cherish every gift that you give them. Even those silly drawings from your childhood.

Here are 10 ideas to gift your dad:

To: Myself

Where i left off.. Surprise Surprise !!

The only reason i give gifts and surprises to people is so that someday they will also give me a surprise (selfish motive). But its sad to realise that people don’t realise this (infact very depressing) And that is why I love ordering things online… because when they arrive its like a present from me to me (YAY!!).

As they say.. why depend on someone else for your happiness. Love yourself.. pamper yourself.. get a spa appointment.. take a couple of solitary hours.. go for an early walk in the fresh air and look at the sun rise.. get a reservation at your favourite restaurant… gift yourself… like a customised phone cover.. with your favourite picture or a picture of your favourite actor.. or a minion phone cover like i gifted myself (minion love.. they are super cute!!) My minion love is so much that i took away my sister-in-law’s minion t-shirt gifted to her… afterall it was a size big for her but perfect for me.. (well ! One more gift to myself). I also got a customised laptop skin with my picture.. stuck it on my laptop so that everybody knows its MY laptop and nobody can steal it (Courtsey: Printvenue). I love photo gifts. Either i get something custom made or make something myself. Right now i am converting one of the walls in my room to a huge photo collage !!

Pictures. Memories. Happiness and sadness. Smiles and tears. You feel lonely and suddenly you realise there are so many people who love you. You were bored and now you are excited. You were sad but now you are happy. You were crying and suddenly you are smiling…even laughing. You are old but you feel younger. You think you are losing memory but the moments captured in the pictures seems like just yesterday…. !!

I read somewhere,

A photograph is something you can look at and remember the old times. A picture is not only a reflection of people.. It’s a reflection of compassion,love and memories of good times… A smile happens in a flash, but the memory can last a lifetime.

There can be no better gift than pictures.. because what you feel is stronger and dense than what you can see or hold in your hands.

Once I saw something and I loved it instantly. It was something that you generally gift to people. But i didn’t know anybody whom I could give it to other than me.. so I bought myself a gift ! And since then this exciting journey began…

Keep loving !

Keep gifting !

Somebody please get me a gift !!

Duniya main do tarah ke log hote hai … (the world has 2 types of people) …
One, the fault-finders! Those who can never be pleased. Whether u get them something they really want or pay them a nice compliment, they are just never happy. Gifting them can be a mammoth of a task. I’d say, give them the time and attention they want, take them shopping and watch them burn a hole in your pocket.

The other, is the kind who genuinely value every piece of gift they get. Even if it’s just your time. They are my favourite people. It’s easy to gift them…I can conveniently get them a home-made treasure and top their list of favourite people forever.
And then there is MOI. You ask me what I want, I would probably say “oh !! nothing” but in my mind I am running a list of a zillion out-worldly and atrociously exotic things that I wish you’d get me. But I will settle with “ok i will tell you if I think of anything”. But in my head, I’m screaming ‘Now You Better Get Me Something!!!’

When my mom overhears me putting forth my demands to my cousins she calls me “Makti” (greedy). But well, I’m proudly and unabashedly greedy. In fact, I keep reminding people to get me gifts. You know, people tend to forget these days with such busy lives.
But the reality is that the gift doesn’t matter. It’s my excuse to connect with them, stay in their thoughts and retain the child-like relationship with them. It’s more so about creating memories, laughing with them, clicking the crazy selfies, troubling each other, sending crazy little things to each other – all to let them know how important they are.

Friendship, A Mystery !

Friendship… what is friendship? I think it is the most complicated and mysterious relation among all the relationships. You never know who comes into your life, when they do and and for how long will they stay in your life.
We make promises of being “best friends”, “forever friends”, “friends for life”… as much as we want to but are we able to keep those promises ? Our day wouldn’t end without talking to each other and now days go by when we havent messaged each other… Earlier we used to meet everyday, then once every week then once a month and now months,  sometimes even  an year passes by.. We promise to always be there for each other. We also say “I am just a call away” but then that call is not made anymore… It is funny how things change… We have moved from ” lets meet and plan” to ” lets plan to meet” and still rarely succeed. Today everybody is busy in their lives.

Sometimes you don’t meet people often but when you do you continue from where you left off last time… nothing seems to be changed.. even when you meet after a long time you know you have each others back.. like they say “old is gold”… trust gets stronger with time… we don’t talk much in college and after a couple of years we meet every weekend !! After years of not being in touch we meet a friend and we’re still friends. Good to get in touch with old pals.
Friendship is weird. Friendship is childish. Friendship is funny. Friendship is stubborn. Friendship is love. Friendship is family. Friendship is happiness. Friendship is hatred for the same person. Friendship is to help each other with their crushes. Friendship is being yourself. Friendship is complicated. Friendship is Never being alone. Friendship is a mystery. Friends may come and go but Friendship is Forever…

Dedicated to all my beautiful friends !! Biggg hugggg

Surprise Surprise !!

To make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to gift them something silly… like a potato nicely packed and wrapped with a nice message.


I gifted this to a friend (idea courtesy: oyehappy) and she immediately gave me my return gift.. 5 mins of cursing… phew !! Even today when she gets to know i have gifted another friend a box of chocolates she goes all hyper and starts cursing me all over again… But the best thing about all this is… she will always remember me and my gift. The reason behind writing this blog is also her.. She was the one who pushed me into writing it…

One of my closet friend recently got married and moved to a different city. I wanted to create memories with her with whatever little time she was at home. I was browsing for ideas when i came across this “If you really want your friends to remember you, give them something cheap.” And that was it… i asked her to give me half day of hers.. I went to pick her up with a cup of coffee I made. Then went to a donuts place to have a sweet little donut. Oh! and i had hand written small messages and quotes for her on small slips of paper. I kept giving her one every few minutes. I took her to a street where there were very less people around (u see, less people less embarrassing !!) and asked her to open the car trunk for a surprise.

I had filled the trunk with balloons (red colour, heart shaped because i couldnt find any other). And the balloons had messages written on slips of paper inside them. She had to pop all the balloons right there on the road !! Well… both of us were embarrassed but were laughing our lungs out.. after so much drama finally we ended our day with lunch and laughter.. Both of us can never forget that day.

I believe the best gifts come from the heart, not the store. I like to make things for my loved ones and surprise them. he best gifts come from the heart, not the store. I like to make things for my loved ones and surprise them.

Once i made an edible fruits bouquet for my father’s birthday (with the help of my mom ofcourse).

And on my mom’s 50th birthday i had made her a nice ‘Explosion Box’ card (idea courtesy: Google) with pictures (made it all by myself.. So Proud !!). The best gift to give your partner is to cook a meal (their favorite) for them. Its true the way to a man’s (women’s too) heart is through his stomach. I read this somewhere, “A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.” As simple as customized photo mugs or photo collage can do the trick. I had also made a video for a friend’s birthday with his pictures and his favorite songs and also songs to describe our friendship. There is a lot of customization going on these days.. and i simply love pictures.. they bring back wonderful memories.. it brings colors to a boring day.. I have decided to gift myself a photo wall. I have started filling a wall in my room with pictures. I cant wait to see the completed wall.. too much excitement !!!

The only reason i give gifts and surprises to people is so that someday they will also give me a surprise (selfish motive). But its sad to realise that people don’t realise this (infact very depressing) And that is why I love ordering things online… because when they arrive its like a present from me to me (YAY!!) How shopping therapy works for people gifting therapy works for me.

Keep Loving

Keep Gifting

Cheers !!
