You can even do a leather bound album if you want fancier than a photo book.
@Honey that's the exact sort of thing we've been doing, but we don't need any new furniture or I would be all over that.
I'm borderline considering just calling our new fridge we got 2 months ago an anniversary gift. It has glass shelves.
I got A nice dress shoes and neither A nor I can remember what he got me
Totes what we did for the Wood anniversary. "We bought a house this year. That counts."
Z got a leather-bound book done for our guest book by a local dude and it's gorgeous. Something like that for a photo album would be lovely!
My nieces are turning 12 next week and my sister has been no help in finding out what they want for their birthday
So any gift ideas for 12 year old girls?
Amazon or Visa gift card? Kids like money.
Nice nail polish, scrunchies, treat them to pedis when this all clears up?
What kind of 12 are they? When I was 12 I only wanted books and art supplies but I had friends who only wanted makeup and clothes.
That was kind of the problem I was having, my one niece has expressed to me she has an interest in makeup, but both my mom and my sister are adamantly against them wearing makeup right now.
I ended up going with instant cameras. I figured that would be fun, especially when they get to hang out with friends again
I think that's a great gift!
I'm working on C's father's day gift. Debating getting him matching dino shirts with A. He would get the shirt on the left:
She would get one of these:
Is this cute or no? Teeth or no teeth for A? Or should I just go with a Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V combo for them? Or different dino shirts?
Dino, no teeth. You know how I feel about dino anything.
I think it’s super cute and also vote no teeth.
Another vote for dino, no teeth.
@Comet our kids have to have the full array of available dino clothing by now right?
Sold on no teeth.
What are your guys thoughts on these personalized storybooks? Was thinking of ordering one as a gift for R for Father's day but not totally sold
They look cute but most of them are paper rather than board books and my kid will destroy them.
@hallokween ’s beau got her one. I’m curious too, I’ve made and not followed through with purchasing several.
S has one of her name. Don't get the name ones if your kid has 9 letters in their name
I made C a custom board book. I’ll see if I can find the link!
(Okay it was easier than I realized lol)
You can make it anything you want. So I did “The ABCs of C” and so like page 1 says “A is for aunties. You have 5”. Then the adjoining page is a collage photo of the 5. (It only lets you upload one image per page but just use picstitch or similar). Now there are not enough pages for every letter so like one page says “O is for outside and P is for puppies” and then the pic is him with the dogs outside etx.
He loves it and reads it in bed (toddlers love pictures of themselves lol). You could do like “The ABCs of dad” and make it all pics of them together or like “Dad of the year” and do a pic/theme from each month (January/pic of them in Jan).
eta- I obv cannot post pics here but lemme know if you wanna see what I mean and I’ll send you pics!
@whatchyagonnado WHAT. I love this!!! Pics please!
100% will be making several of these. Love! This would make a great gift too.
@whatchyagonnado This is so much better than the things I’ve seen advertised.
