firstly i wanna extend thanks to everyone who contributes to this community's existence and the spirit of helpfulness! after researching the cup types in this community i felt happily ready to jump on the $25 diva cup deal i found at a natural foods store, here in maine! that was 2 1/2 yrs ago and i've been pretty ecstatic ever since!! the pink packaging and new plastic sort of smell made me feel like i was 7 years old with a new my little pony still in the box. what a great day. as i wrote in an email just today,
"i think this is my most successful intimate relationship on all levels. ha!! seriously, yeah, i have felt so much more whole and in touch and in control and most importantly physically healthy since springing for the silicone princess. i used to get infections and stuff from pads and also had debilitating cramp episodes, which are all but gone these days . . maybe it really is related?"
my question is about how to go about giving a cup as a gift. i'd like to give one to my good (but not yet best of bests) friend for her birthday. (after casually confirming she doesn't have one yet--i know she's been thinking about it! she's a procrastinator like me, and i know i put off getting one way too long!)
has anyone used, or given a gift certificate from a store, or an online store, for a diva or other cup? i'm not sure if any online stores even have any kind of gift certificate option. i thought about just up and buying one for her, but then there's the very personal choice of the size A vs. size B with the diva, that has the "above 30" recommendation, and we're getting a little near that number! hmmm...
or maybe i could just write her a check with an encouraging note or something? :)
