If you’ve been around here for a little bit, you will know that since both of my boys have birthdays within a month of Christmas we give them a “forever gift” every year to celebrate rather than a toy, hoodie or video game. This gift is something that we hope they will have forever, rather than something that is quickly tossed aside or outgrown.
Last year we gave them each a solid brass oyster shell belt buckle and leather belt strap. Honey has worn a similar belt buckle day in and day out since our 10th anniversary. They don’t dress up often, but when they do they always reach for this one. The buckle is the perfect size to grow with them, and the belt strap is inexpensive to replace.
Over the years, they have received house portraits, John Derian plates, mini oil paintings, sterling silver baby cutlery, professional portraits, Sugarboo Frames and bronzed baby shoes, Irish linen monogrammed handkerchiefs, golden snitch Harry Potter clocks, pet portraits, luggage, watches and few other things I’ve since forgotten.
I’ve got to put my thinking cap on for 2020. Birthdays are coming up SOON!
