But if you want to be a truly memorable camper...one that the other campers will talk about for years to come...you'll want to consider MY list, too. (I just love the fall catalog season)
First of all, nobody will remember you if you are a wallflower. Sure, you can try to be the Funny One, but that's a lot of pressure. You can be the Loud Voiced One, but that gets you nothing but a sore throat (and sometimes dirty looks). So here's your solution: You can be the One Who Knows Everything. Personally, I like to bone up on my knowledge about everything before I go to camp, but you can pack this book and then set it on your table so that everyone will realize that YOU are the one to ask about everything. In fact, don't wait till they ask you. People love a person who knows everything, so why make them wait? Speak up! Everyone is probably just waiting to know where they can order their salmon skin bikini. (Wait...it's probably in this same catalog)
Then we have our clothing. Comfortable clothing is a really big deal at camp. So make sure that you pack your comfy shoes and I even like to take slippers that can double as a shoe for a quick trip outside. Say....do they make pajamas like that? Why yes, they do! Pack your double-duty lounge pants and nobody will know that you've spent the day in your pajamas. So I've decided to switch from this, which was my usual outfit:
To this outfit. Because you know I love a cowboy theme.
Ok, we've covered conversation and comfort, now we can finally address our snacks. Personally, I always begin my day with coffee, and everyone else usually has some neat-o mug with a stitchy saying. Why not make their mornings memorable with YOUR mug.
|Fellow campers love it when you give them too much information.|
Besides our meals (and they're usually fabulous!) campers like to bring snacks to pick at through the day. You can be a real Debbie Downer and remind your stitching companions about the dangers of over eating, or you can just give them a set of these! Everyone will thank you.
Oh and finally, a truly memorable camper will probably end her evening with cocktails. But you don't have to worry about spilling your cocktail on anyone's lovely stitching when you have this handy accessory. It's also helpful because I don't like to share. And don't think I won't know if you come around and steal one.
I'm partial to the pink one.
Now go pack for camp!
