There are so many occasions that I can run to any local store and find the perfect Hallmark card – for adults, but their recent line of kids cards have a special place in my heart! You see, I love to look at cards, I spend way too much time reading every single card when I need to pick one up. It’s so easy to find tons of grown up topics, but to find ones for kids, well, they were pretty limited to birthdays, holidays, congratulations and religious events. Now, I have so many more opportunities to let my kids, and other kids in my life know how proud I am, wish them luck at a new school, cheer on sports fetes, and give them a hug when I’m not around.
We’ve got one little girl in our lives, who is completely convinced that some day (when she’s about 30 – according to her father!!!), she’s going to marry Justin Bieber. The Bieber Fever cards are a fantastic way to keep his fans happy!
I can easily predict that the Lunchbox Notes are going to be huge hits with my kids. Over the years, I’ve written little notes to my girls had tucked them into their lunchboxes just to let them know that I’m thinking about them. One of the girls in my middle schooler’s class was so bummed out that her mom didn’t write her notes, that I even sent one in for her one day. Being a teacher, I know how important the support of parents is, and the Lunchbox Notes are such a simple way to let our kids now how important they are to us.
When those special moments come our way, and we’re looking for a cute way to acknowledge the kids in our lives, we can Bug ‘Em! This too cute collection of bugs will be sure to surprise any child who receives one, and the secret – under the shell pouch is the perfect spot to add a surprise.
