Great Gift Ideas For Parents

“Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.”
-Elizabeth Stone

I enjoy finding unique gift ideas for parents. Here is one I have done on occasion and the children love decorating the jar lid or box with lots of color and dimension. On the outside we decorate a card with the "What's in the jar" explanation. It's always a hit!

What’s in the Jar:
1 bag of pennies-It’s okay not to have all the answers if you have good common ‘sense’.
1 bag of Sweet & Sour candy-Because we love our children through it all.
1 box of Crayons-to remind you sometimes you’ve got to get creative.
1 pair of wax lips-For those times you have to keep a stiff upper lip.
1 puzzle piece-A gentle reminder you are an important “piece” of this child’s life.
1 bag of chocolate mints-Because all you do is worth a ‘mint’.

These are great do-it yourself gift ideas for any or all occasions!
