Life is full of opportunities to give gifts – baby showers, birthdays, Christmas, even funerals. Gifts show you took the time to care. To carefully pick out a gift that would have meaning and be a source of delight for the receiver.
If you’re struggling to come up with some unique gifts for events, look no further. Here’s a guide to get you started.
With a new life comes the opportunity to start new traditions. Consider giving a reading pillow with a book that mom can read to baby. Each birthday you can add a new book for everyone to enjoy. It’s never too early to start reading to a child and foster their love for books. Make lasting memories snuggling up and reading together.
How about custom burp cloths? They can be personalized with baby’s name and can also match the nursery theme. (Contact me and we’ll get the perfect design.)
Mom will be eternally grateful for our loveys and sensory blankets. Anything that helps her child sleep better is a welcome gift. Once they have mom’s familiar scent and the soft feel becomes recognizable, it will help the child relax and feel comfortable so they’re able to soothe themselves to sleep. It can help with separation anxiety, new situations, and can also help reduce nighttime fears as the child grows.
Infant car seat covers are another great baby gift that will be used and parents would be grateful to receive. Choose from a stretchy cover that doubles as a nursing cover or a super warm fleece one that will keep baby snug and warm.
There are so many options available here. The hooded bath towels are a great idea for children up to about age 12. It’s easier to get kids out of the tub or pool when they have a fun, soft towel to dry off with – plus, it doubles as a cape for imaginative play.
Foster a love of reading with a fun, age-appropriate book, combined with a reading pillow tailored to the child’s interests. Make it even more special by reading the book together. If you live far away, make a recording of your reading or better yet, have a Skype date where you can read it live.
Boredom buster boxes encourage kids to step away from the screens and play with toys that will encourage their imagination. Make memories together playing with non-paper dolls (paper dolls but made with felt so they last longer and don’t tear), making stories with finger puppets, or playing a game of tic-tac-toe. These activities are perfect for all those “waiting” times. Waiting at the doctor’s office. Waiting for food in the restaurant. Waiting for the rain to stop…
They can accompany your child on all their adventures and will be cherished for years. Do you have a toy you cherished as a child? Share those stories when you present your little one with their own cherished animal.
For those “kids” who are young at heart and have a memorable birthday coming up, our embroidered toilet paper is a fun, whimsical gift that will surely elicit a smile when it’s opened.
When you want less candy for your child, consider any of the items listed under the birthday section. They are fun yet useful and will last longer than candy.
Every woman wants a practical yet cute purse to use every day. Harry Potter fans will be thrilled with the variety of options available. From a small wristlet that carries all the essentials to a crossbody bag that fits all the extras. If Harry Potter isn’t your jam, check out the Avengers, Wonder Woman, or one of the many other options.
For the woman who travels, consider a toiletry bag with a water-resistant lining. There’s nothing worse than having something leak in your bag, making a huge mess. These bags wipe clean in a snap if something spills, making that huge mess only a small problem that’s easily fixed.
If mom loves heating her food in the microwave, there is a large assortment of microwave bowl holders available. Choose her favorite themed fabric for a fun, practical gift.
Embroidered towels are a unique gift that can be monogrammed or done with a design she will love. These are custom-made to match the interests of the recipient and will be used and treasured for years.
Toiletry bags are available for men as well and if Dad travels a lot, he’ll appreciate a fun, stylish gift.
Reading Pillows are available in adult themes as well and would be a great gift for the reader in your family.
As they leave home, send them with a nice, soft towel embroidered with their name or monogram. They’ll appreciate being able to separate theirs from the roommate’s. (Contact me and we’ll get the perfect design.)
Finding a reading pillow with a saying and theme specific to the graduate would be a fun gift. They can use it to support their back while doing all that college reading and to rest their head on when they need to get some sleep.
After the loss of a loved one, it’s so hard to find comforting words or a gift that expresses your sincere desire to help. I’m very passionate about “kreating” gifts that provide comfort during a time of loss. Feeling strongly that having something to hold helps in the healing process, most of the memory gifts available from Kidderbug Kreations are soft and cuddly. Pillows, bears, and blankies all provide a gift-able hug to help fill the void in your arms and heart.
Avoid the crowded malls and save time by ordering online from the comfort of your home. You will not only receive a quality, handcrafted item, you’ll be supporting a small business that takes great joy in helping you find the perfect gift.
