My daughter begged me for an IPAD for her 12th birthday. I do not think she was too happy with the IPAD I got her though! :-)

Tee-hee, this reminds me of all the creative ways my grandmother would give us cash for our birthdays/Christmas. I asked for dishes one year, and she put the cash in an extra cup she had; one year she tucked money into into a brick for my brother; put money in a CD case; decorated a box to look like a treasure chest when my husband wanted money for his aquarium hobby; put it in a book, etc. Every year she has some clever way to give us money.

We've kind of taken on that tradition: I'd wanted a video game one year, and my brother made a mock case of it and put money it it; my husband wanted aviator glasses, so my brother made origami sunglasses and put money in them; instead of buying my mom a book, he made her a tiny pretend book with the cover of the book she wanted with money inside it; etc. One year, my brother asked for a "foam exercise matt"--spelled just like that. So, I got a chunk of foam that we had lying around, cut it into to the shape of a man, drew exercise clothes with a sharpie on it, and gave it to to my brother with a little card saying it was Foam Exercise Matt .

I can imagine my family giving an "I pad" like that (if such things had been around when I was younger), and just tucking a few dollars inside the pad. If we didn't check the inside of the pad, it would be our loss!
 
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
