Your favorite gift from niece or nephew
Jul 28 2010
Hi, I would like to know your favorite, special or most unique gift a niece or nephew ever gave to you. After 18 years of showering my nephews and nieces with gifts, I am now a mom myself. Now that I am on the flip side of things, I wonder what unique, touching or meaningful gift I can have my baby give to her adoring aunts and uncles. We always give a real gift but I want them to receive a gift from the baby too. I recently had a favorite photo (of my baby and dog) imprinted on a pencil/make up case i found online. Most of the aunts seemed genuinely pleased when they opened the gift. But it was the older (14-18 year old) teen cousins that dug it the most. I get that people don't want to receive endless gifts with my baby's photo on them. I've done that once only. I know the best gift I ever received from a niece and nephew (siblings) was a Hallmark card they sent me one Mother's Day (before I became a mom), which said they loved me like a mom. They were 16 and 12 so I know their mom purchased it. That made the card even more meaningful because it showed she appreciates how much I adore her kids. Any gift ideas? Gifts you've received or wish you would receive as an auntie?
