So, as much as I love Valentine’s Day because of all the goodies and gifts, I sometimes struggle with the day for the same reason. My husband and I made a New Year’s resolution to limit the sweets in any way we can. My kids, though they don’t know it, will be feeling the effects of this. It will all begin with the valentine’s gifts they’ll take to their school mates!
There are SO MANY different kinds of bookmarks you can make but I think these little paperclip bookmarks are my favorite.
As a kid, I hated this. As a mom, I’m more than happy if my kid comes home with a handful of pencils rather than candy. So…
Why? Because how many of these did you get as a kid? None? Me too. And if I had gotten one, I would’ve thought it was the coolest thing in the world.
Ah! You can find socks everywhere and it’s yet another unique gift. I love socks.
I can’t think of any kid who is either allergic to these or hates these. They’re a safe bet!
I’m a kid at heart. Truly! I know my son would love getting one of these!
