Entertaining Them

vacation ideas

From the Momfilter Archives 

Every holiday season I have gift and creativity amnesia–I am so overwhelmed with how much I have to get done, and how much time I have wasted, that I can’t come up with a single clever idea for gift giving, and end up buying everything, spending too much money, often on things I’m not even crazy about. The gifts that are the sweetest though could actually be done in the summer, with just a little thinking ahead. What grandparent doesn’t want a sweet watercolor or sunprint…that you and/or your kids made…from a summer weekend or vacation? I always bring a kit of mini watercolors, watercolor paper in postcard size, and sunprints. We feel like we have truly relaxed once we bring them out–and then at the end of the trip, they make a nice selection of presents that you can put away until December (or a little sooner if you want to frame them!)
