I was very blessed during my first pregnancy as I received a lot of practical gifts and ‘experienced-mom’ to ‘first-time-mom’ advice (it was needed, as I was completely clueless) and so, when my sister found out she was pregnant with her first little girl, I was determined to give her as many practical gifts and advice as possible.

INGENIOUS GIFT IDEAS FOR INFANTS & TODDLERS

Gifts

My Bean is turning 1 soon (too soon) and I have been racking my brain over the last couple of weeks as to what to get him as a gift. Being his parents, I want us to get him something special and unique and not simply another ‘run of the mill’ gift from a shop.
