But they’re super easy to make and super cheap, if you do them yourself and you can definitely customize it, if your mom has like a favorite scent whether it’s vanilla or fruity customize it and make it for your loved one and our buy option is really just a great pair of slippers models always walk around the house doing things. And I know she would really appreciate a pair of just nice slippers it’s something that you don’t think about buying for yourself. Because it’s just so obvious I don’t have them yet have a nice pair.

But really isn’t tuned too much anymore.
But what they might be doing that you don’t know of is touring yeah I’m doing small town kind of shows yeah so like with just one member of the band exactly at like a smaller bar casino or not like they’re not filling out you know the big stadiums anymore. But your dad would love to see them again so sure look into things that your dad used to like or still does like that might still be happening now and you can go or hurt or father or grandpa anyone anyway and so we’ve kind of just categorized these gifts according to what the people in our lives would like.
