Margo's 60th NYC trip!

Margo is turning 60!


Myself and a few others have recently been wondering what to get my mum Margo for her 60th birthday, the lady with enough different types of gin to sink a ship and a house fit to bust with 'stuff'!

Mum has long said she'd like to go to New York and as you might imagine it isn't my dad's cup of tea(/gin)!

So, I've booked her and I some flights to NY the weekend after her party AS A SURPRISE SO DON'T TELL HER!

Other people have been asking what to get her so I've set up this site where you can contribute to her trip if you'd like by buying her certain experiences (fear not I'll be funding my own trip!). All you have to do is use this site to identify what experience/s you'd like to buy (buy as many or as few as you'd like!) and then just pop the money her birthday card, you don't need to pay for anything on this site, the website is just a tool to keep track of what people would like to buy her.

Please feel in no way obliged to contribute to this - your birthday wishes alone will be more than enough for Margo :-)

I'll be surprising her at her party (so hopefully you can all come) by presenting her with a list / collage of all the experiences she has been bought for her trip.

Give me a call or email with any questions!

Just check the box next to any gifts you wish to purchase, then click the 'Purchase' button at the bottom of the page. All prices are in Pounds.
