My gal friend just had a baby girl. She’s so tiny and sweet. I want to give something for the baby that is small and doesn’t take up space. We all know how many things newborn gets these days. Clothes are just overly given.
Through my research on Pinterest, I found that hair bow and headband are the answers to my gift dilemma. What is also great about hair bows or headbands? They make great a photo prop. They go great with a white shirt or a naked baby. So below, I researched for you and for myself (gift ideas for the little ladies in my life), the cutest and sweetest hair bows for girls for every day, special photos, or a party.

What’s so great about these gifts is that you can get them at your local Target, beauty store like Sephora, restaurants, or even Amazon. The trick is to package it beautifully.

Give mom a gift certificate to her favorite nail salon. If you don’t know what her favorite salon is, just give her a Visa’s gift card that she can use anywhere. Or if she likes doing her own nail, then put together a nice personal at home nail salon.
2. Give her a box of her favorite treats

Give her the whole box of cookies and tell her you’ll take the kids out for two hours so she can eat the whole box by herself…in peace.
3. Spa day
Give her a gift certificate to the spa so she can be relaxed and happy to see you and the kids again. If you can’t afford a spa treatment then put together a spa kit that includes a face mask so she can wear it while binge watching her favorite show and eating her favorite box of cookies.
4. Order her favorite meal

Give her a meal to enjoy while binge watching her favorite show, wearing the face mask and eating cookies. And if you’re ultra nice you’ll order meals for the whole family for the week.
5. Set up a bath for her
Buy that bath tray and put all the essentials, including the wine glass and bottle. Give her the whole day to just lie there to watch her favorite shows or read her favorite book.
6. Give her a gift card
If you’re not sure which of the above you want to do for her just give her a Visa’s gift card. Mom will take care of her gift herself and she will not have to return your present. You can find gift cards almost everywhere these days. I personally know that Walgreens and Rite Aid have them. The gift cards range from restaurants to movies.
7. Give her a “One Line A Day” journal
This type of journal is all the rage right now. Give it to her and let her jot down her memories. Her one line for Mother’s day might just be : “Receiving the One Line a Day journal and leaving me to write down my thoughts in a quiet space is the best gift I received on this Mother’s day.”
8. Drop her off at her BFF’s

If you think mom will be bored if you leave her alone, then drop her off at her bff’s so they can be “bored” together.
9. Give mom a theater treatment
Be it a Broadway show or a movie. Just leave her somewhere alone so she can watch a movie or fall asleep at the movie theater.
10. Don’t wake her up

If you truly love mom, don’t even bother waking her up to wish her a happy Mother’s Day. Just let her sleep past 7 AM. And let her wake up to a ready-made breakfast, a clean house, and no screaming children.Bring the kids back right before their bedtime.
There you have it. Ten gifts that any mom would love. Give her one or all ten gifts. The most important part of all these gifts is that you leave her alone to enjoy them! Believe me, she will love you for it.

My baby boy will be turning two this June. How times fly! I will miss the first year, but I’m sure the second one will as adventurous and fun for him and me! Can’t wait to see what 2 has in store for us. To celebrate his birthday, I want to get him a cute birthday shirt. I’ve searched the internet and found some really cute ones that I want to share with you. All of these shirts would be great to wear all year round, not just for birthdays.

Yes, you can just let your kids use the ones you have at home, but these are perfect size for little hands. Having a set for the kiddos also let them to clean along with you so you could discreetly clean the little crumbs they left behind.
My 18 months have been playing with dining set since 6 months and my 5 year old still love to serve me “dinner” with the same dining set. These are one of those toys that can definitely grow with your kids because as they age so do their imagination and the same dining set can become something totally new. To my 18 month old these make great musical instruments. He also loves to transfer water back and forth between the cups and bowls. You know what else is great about these dining set? They are dishwasher safe!
A shopping car is another toy that will last you through the years. Not to mention you can use it as storage when the kids are not playing with it. You can also bring this cart with you shopping at Target so your kid doesn’t push your cart all the time. Hopefully, he doesn’t put all the toys in it!
The learning tower is so wonderful for our household. It allows the kids to safely stand while prepping dinner or washing the dishes. We built ours from an Ikea step stool, but this one from Little Partner is great cause the height is adjustable.
This machine is great for kids learning how to sew. It’s light, has 10 built-in stitches, and has a guard to protect little fingers from sharp needle. Pair this with a sewing kit and they’re set to sew anything they want. For younger kids, adult supervision is needed and maybe the kid can help with one step of the sewing. When my son was a year old, he would just watch the needle move up and down. That was the most exciting part of his day. And when he got older, I would let him step on the pedal.
There are so many more practical gifts, but these are the ones that I personally love for my kids.
What am I missing from my guide that you feel will be great as a practical gift for kids to learn life skills?
10. Personalized gift sack. Can’t finish the list without something to put all above gifts in. This sack will last days/years after the gift gifting is done. Can be used to store stuff animals, legos, or the abundance of laundry!
What personalized gifts have you given your family and friends?
