Nothing says 'I thought about your gift' better than a personalized item. Luckily, the variety of choices available today is stunning.
Start the season off right by selecting some bright tulips. Yellow, orange, pink or purple, they are available in all the Easter colors. Put them in a brightly colored pail and decorate the handle with a ribbon and an Easter tag in the shape of a bunny.
A bucket of blossoms isn't the only way to deliver those delightful Easter flowers, though. A beautiful coffee cup full of violet plants can be more than just petals on a plate. The cup itself can reflect the fine color of these welcome messengers of Spring.
People tend to be more generous around the holidays and this generosity includes toys. The easiest way to give this holiday season is to volunteer with a recognized group.
An excellent gift for a new bride in the family would be a cookbook of all the family favorites. Add some stories and maybe old photos of family gatherings to go along with the recipes. Put together some dry mixes of some of the recipes to get her started. Wrap it in a nice apron, maybe even one that belonged to a relative.
Lots of people use the occasion to give a gift to another family's dog. After all, parents often think to buy great costumes for the kids but Rover would like to join in the fun, too! A spooky ghost sweater or a glow-in-the-dark hourglass covering works well. Well-behaved dogs are also a good thing to bring along on trick or treat trips around the neighborhood, adding an element of safety to the experience. A glow-in-the-dark leash decorated with pumpkins is the perfect gift choice then.
Shopping for baby shower gifts is a lot of fun! Everything is so cute and so tiny and so necessary. It's easy to want to buy everything for the expectant mother, and she probably would graciously accept everything that's given to her, but there likely are some specific baby items she'd really like to have.
