JC: I love the idea of gifting a trip or vacation! Can you tell us a little more about the concept behind Pickaboo?
My mom would be away for my 20th birthday. I was pretty thrilled because I was planning on having a party with some friends with no one to bother us! So far, she hadn’t said a word about not being around on this particular day. I thought, along with my youngest brother, that she had completely forgotten due to her busy work schedule. I wasn’t expecting a present, anyway.
As a 62 year old grandmother, it’s not always easy for me to keep up with all the newest fashions and trends. I was expecting to have a hard time finding out what to get my 18 year old granddaughter for her graduation gift. She had worked so hard and achieved first-class grades; I really wanted to show her how proud I was with an unexpected treat – not to give her something that wasn’t ‘right’.
