Other Special People In Our Lives…
This year we are getting each grandparent their favorite children’s book. Our kids are signing their name within the book with the intent to have grandma or grandpa read the book to them. Other ideas include bird seed wreaths, pictures of your family with or without a frame, an adventure scrap book, shutterfly photo book, DIY ornaments from the kids, calendar of all family member included, personalized gifts from etsy, and amazon fire stick. The sky’s the limit, though most grandmas and grandpas I know just want to be with family for the holidays!
We try to show our appreciation to our teachers. They work so hard at teaching our children and we are blessed for those who have been in our lives. Here are a few items for those educators out there: DIY ornaments from your kids, books for the classroom (donate), audible gift card, gift card to print pictures, chocolate, wine, socks, personalized gifts from etsy.
Looking For Postman, Garbage Man or…anyone that helps a good neighbor out!
We tend to forget those who help us in our daily lives, without those are who help us at home, life wouldn’t be the same. I would consider homemade desserts, gift cards for coffee, amazon, Home Depot, Target and a nice thank you card. Keep it Simple!
