A handmade gift is truly a gift from the heart. I especially love gifts made by the little ones in my life, as I know the time and effort they put into it just for me. Whether a simple drawing or something more involved, DIY gifts are extra special! Here are a few ideas for gifts the kids can make.

Fab kids birthday parties

I’m a big fan of my birthday and will celebrate it with anyone who stands still for two seconds.

Here are a few fun ideas to get your imagination hoppin’, plus take a peek at our Birthday Fun Pinterest board for even more inspiration!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

fathers-day-diy-typography-glasses

Men can be tough to shop for, so the question of what to get him for Father’s Day often perplexes us. It’s especially tough if he’s already got everything — the perfect wife, adorable kids and man’s best friend!

What do you get your dad or husband for Father’s Day? My dad loves See’s Candies and lottery tickets, so I’ll get him both. I can picture him munching chocolates as he uses a quarter to scratch his way to millions of dollars!

Here’s a few more ideas in case you’re stuck:
