IT”S MY BIRTHDAY! I thought I would blog this morning so I can relax the rest of the day. I have been very lucky, and woken up to some very special gifts from my little Hallie (my partner has done well). So I thought I would include these gifts in todays post, as there are some great ideas to give to our partners, from our children.
1. First up we have a custom made ‘Mummy’ necklace that Matt made with Hallie. It has lots of animals on it so she loved making it. She does now think it’s hers, but I am sure we can share. Matt sourced the bits separately on eBay.
2. A mould of their hands and feet – not such a pleasant experience for Matt, as Hallie hates anything on her hands. This was apparent when I opened it and she turned away in horror. This is also from eBay.
3. A large canvas from Photobox – a lovely keepsake for my new office. The quality of the pictures are amazing! They really do spend a lot of time making sure they go out looking great.
4. The card! Helping your toddler write the card is always a heart melter – but this idea from Matt was amazing! He sourced hard board from B&Q, connected it with string and helped Hallie have a fun painting session making it! Page one was the front with the ‘Happy Birthday Mummy’, page two was Hallie’s favourite animals from her books/the favourite noises she likes to make, page three was inspired by Hallie’s favourite books again – with flaps to lift and see special moments we had together. He really did do well!!
Good job Hallie! Can’t wait for next year already 🙂
