Default What I'm Giving My Daughter For Christmas

I didn't know what to get for my daughter for Christmas this year. She likes to pick out her own clothes and her 2 bedroom Condo is fully decorated.

I usually buy her lot's of stuff and I also give her money. Last year when she opened the Money envelope, she said "I don't need this" (the money). I felt like saying "I'll take it back". So no more money for her.

So her big present this year is a trip to ARUBA. I just finished booking online for Tina and her cousin Lisa for the trip.

I used my AA miles for the flight and my Marriott points for them to stay at the Renaissance Marina Tower. The Ren Ocean Tower is nicer but its a lot more Marriott points. I have stayed at both and the Marina Tower is fine for what they need. I know they will love the Ren Private Island.

I'm not even going to be here when she gets her present. I decided that I spend too much money on gifts every Christmas and I wasnt going to do it this year. So I booked going to Aruba with my sister and nephew.

Now I feel bad that Im not going to be home, and bought lots of gifts for my husband and daughter. I will call my husband Christmas Eve and tell him to get the presents out of the closet and put them under the tree.

Tina has been to Aruba once - 20 years ago in '85 when she was 13 years old. Her cousin Lisa 27 years old and never has been to Aruba.

Questions I want to book them on a Party Bus and also a Party Boat. Need suggestions on which ones.

Hopefully, Tina will be happy with this trip. I booked it for Feb. 1-8.

Great present Liz. You have a very lucky daughter. Would you like to adopt a son?

Liz, what a wonderful Mommy you are! And what a great Christmas gift!
The Kukoo Kunuku is great and included Dinner. Tge Banana Bus was also fun and was a bar hopping tour. The one I went on last year was the Carlos and Charlie's Party bus and was only on a Wednesday night. All three were a blast. I have never been on any of the Party boats so I really can't say.

I am sure they will both have a wonderful time!

I third the Kukuu Kunuku bus. It is a lot of fun and 2 girls their age should have a blast! What a generous and thoughtful present! I guess your plans worked out for Christmas with your sister? I am so glad to hear it!

PS - Would you like to adopt another daughter, lol?

One daughter is enough. LOL.

The Kukoo Kunuk Party Bus is in. I'm thinking of the Jolly Pirates as a party boat for them. Any thoughts.

Plus I was thinking of Tuscany's at the Marriott for dinner on another night. I know that there are better restaurants, but I want to get them up to see the hi-rise section. We stayed in the hi-rise section 20 years ago, but she is not going to remember and the hotel is not there anymore (Palm Beach Hotel).

When I stayed downtown (before La Cabana), I stayed downtown and didn't see the other area. Maybe I'll also book them a tour.
