We’ve all received THAT gift that made our hearts swell with love. It wasn’t the most expensive gift, it wasn’t the fanciest gift, but it was the most thoughtful.
You can create that magic moment for a special child in your life – your own daughter or son, their best friend, your best friend’s child, your niece or nephew, your neighbour… They will always fondly remember that moment and thank you for it.
Here are a few ways to create that unforgettable moment. It may take a little bit of thought but it doesn’t have to take much time.
- Hand make a card
Remember, you’re not expected to be John Sands. As long as you’re expressing the love you have for the child, they will appreciate it. Have a little fun with it.
- Photos and washi tape Print out a good or goofy photo you have with the child. You can use pretty washi tape to decorate the corners.
- Note Write to them about why they are special to you. If you have special moments together, tell the story. Children love to hear stories about themselves.
- Add a personal touch to wrapping
Last year, my daughter’s birthday party theme was butterflies. One of the mums beautifully wrapped a gift using butterfly stickers and clipped on butterfly hairpins. I didn’t want my child to open the gift because it was such a thoughtful gesture.
- Stickers Pick up a few next time you’re shopping or help yourself to a few of your children’s. You can also include some unused ones in the envelope for the child.
- Printables If you have a bit of extra time, you can go online and download free printable to incorporate in your gift wrapping. Pinterest is amazing.
A book is always a special gift that the child can keep for a long time. When it is personalised to feature not only the name of the child but also a character that looks like the child, it is a guaranteed success with any child.
- The Adventures You’ll Have A personalised storybook by Aussie author & illustrator Brett Curzon, it takes the child through an adventure in a rock band, in the deep blue, and in space… All while making friends with fantastic creatures
