When you have very young kids, getting gifts for them is easy. You can give them a bunch of crap from the dollar store and they’re happy. Heck, you can give them toilet paper rolls, trash, and socks to play with, and they will– happily. My nephew prefers napkins and cardboard over his expensive baby toys anyway. What’s difficult is getting them to give gifts to their parents. Sure, you could just buy your spouse a nice, store bought item, write “From Baby” on it, and be done with it– but I think that having the kids make something is much more meaningful, and the parents will love it. Check out this idea from Lynette at Cleverly Simple for an adorable “From Kid” gift– a DIY Sharpie mug:
Sharpies (Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pens )
-Let the kids go wild!
-Let them dry overnight. The next day I placed them in a COLD oven and turned the heat on to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I let it “cook” for 30 minutes and then turned the heat off. IMPORTANT::: Let the oven cool before you pull out the coffee mugs.
