What gift did you receive on your 13th birthday?
I honestly can't remember mine, but for Doug and Chesca Kramer, they made sure that their daughter Kendra will remember her 13th birthday.
The couple who makes up the Team Kramer said in their vlog that they are a very sentimental family. That's why for their firstborn's milestone birthday, they gave Kendra her very first special watch.
According to PEP.ph, Kendra received a Rolex Lady Datejust watch from her parents, which costs around Php 489,500.
In their vlog, Doug gave a short message before giving Kendra their gift.
"The most important thing is what Mommy and I, and your siblings have shown you, is how quality and quantity of time is so important. So as a symbol of time, this is a little reminder of how precious you are and how precious your time is."
Elated, Kendra thanked her dad and her mom. Chesca said, "Ano ba, pumayag ako kasi I'm gonna wear that too, noh!"
Doug also gave Kendra the promise ring he gave her when she was 7, as a reminder of their love for their daughter.
"So this is a reminder, Kenny, because you're now a teenager, right? You know that for Mommy and Daddy we can only tell you so much advice and guidance. Sometimes you have to say yes on your own, say no on your own, right?"
"So I want you to wear it tonight. Remember what the promise ring is? So don't forget how mama and papa treat you, the love we show you, and don't give away your love so easily sweetheart, okay?"ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Scarlet, Kendra's little sister, has a gift for her too. A sister bracelet, which, her mom said, she bought using her own money. "Thank you for being the best sister and my bestfriend," Scarlet said.
Doug said, "For Kendra's 13th bday, we made sure that she will value this gift until she grows old. We love you so much Kendra! You deserve the best always!"
