They teach our children left from right, fractions from percentages, similes from metaphors. They teach them how to speak in an “inside voice” and to raise their hands instead of shouting out the answers. And if you’ve got little ones, they might even be teaching them how to use the potty. So how do you say “thank you, thank you, thank you!!” to your children’s teachers?
Today, as I was driving down the street listening to my littlest cackling at the movie she was watching from the back seat (don’t judge me, my moments of peace are few and far between), my mind wandered to the day I met my husband. My first thought was, “I don’t ever want to forget how amazing that day felt.”
There’s one at every baby shower: a gift that makes all the moms in the room say, “Aw, man! Why didn’t they have that around when my kids were little babies?”
Want to be the one who brings the show-stopping baby gift? Here are three baby shower gift ideas that are perfect for today’s hip and health-conscious mama-to-be.
Turn about is fair play, and if you give your husband yet another tie for Father’s Day I can’t prevent him from giving you another slow cooker recipe book when your birthday comes around. If you default to the bland gifts of Father’s Days past you will be negating all the hard work we did to explain to the men of the world why they cannot give an iron as a Mother’s Day gift. This year, tell him he’s the best father you’ve ever known with a gift he’ll actually use.
Maybe he’s your grandfather, your brother or a newly retired teacher who transformed your life when you were growing up. Whatever role that lucky man plays in your life, Father’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to show just how much you care. And what better way than a bountiful basket of gifts that enhance his health?
When you ask your wife/mother/partner/Bombshell what she wants for Mother’s Day, there’s a 9 to 1 chance that she says, “Oh, I’m happy just knowing you and the kids are safe, happy, and healthy.”
Whether the object of your affection is your mother, an aunt, your sister or a close friend, choosing the perfect gift for Mother’s Day can be a challenging task. Flowers fade, and buying a blouse or scarf can be tricky when it comes to figuring out the right size and color. As for candy, well, the ingredients in most candies read like a list of items to buy for a chemistry laboratory experiment!
