Every gift idea should start by thinking about the person you have to gift in mind. That’s right, start with who you are thinking about. For teddy bears, you should think about if you’re going to gift a relative, a friend or even a lover. When choosing the right teddy consider the meaning behind it first. By having a good grounding about what your gift’s meaning, you’ll better know how to select the right stuffed bear.
There is always a danger of the popular people getting all the nice gifts and the less popular people getting not nice or well thought out gifts at all. I remember one time in a Christmas gift exchange I had bought a beautiful gift for the person I had picked. I knew she was a writer and so I got her a pen set that I knew she liked. However, the person who had chosen my name (we did not know who bought the gift) gave me a magazine, one I would never have read, but what was even more disappointing was that it was used. It was not a gift selected for me at all it was something they had hanging around the house. It was the lack of thought that bothered me.
A clear round bowl makes a nice snow globe-type arrangement, too. Use a small plate, turned upside-down, as the base. Arrange the minis on the plate and allow to dry. Fill the bowl up with water, two tablespoons of white vinegar, and glitter or fake snow. Turn the plate upside down and glue to the bowl, using super glue. Decorate by adding your choice of garland, ribbon or other items to the edge, where the plate meets the bowl. Allow the glue to set for an hour or so before turning the plate over and displaying the snow globe arrangement.
Though this may sound trivial for some people it is an issue. One person may go out and buy a lavish gift while another may give a gift from the dollar store or a used magazine like I got. Hey don’t get me wrong; if that person had given me a knick-knack or something from their home I would have loved it. I just did not appreciate a used magazine with dog-ears, and a page that was torn inside! To me that used magazine in such poor condition was no different than giving someone a half used candle.
Yes, stuffed bears can vary in size like their real-life counterparts. Stuffed bears of various sizes are known as small, medium and big teddy bear (s), don’t be afraid to mix-up your choices when choosing a gift. We’ve found that sometimes having a big mini doodles for sale can be a great gift for virtually everyone. Stuffed animals are fun to have around and if you find the right one, double as pillows. Also, they’re great to squeeze for extra comfort.
Even fish bowls can be made into snow globe-type designs. Follow suit by arranging the minis on the base or lid, then affix the fish bowl to the base to cover the scenery.
The Mitzvah Mobile is one of the cutest crib mobiles. While it does retail for around $40, babies will love this colorful mobile. The mobile plays the Adon Olam song, and delights with its primary colors. This is a very unique gift idea for baby’s first Hanukkah.
Whether you opt for flowers or plants as a gift, you`ll be making the right decision. They are both excellent gifts that are enjoyed greatly by the recipients. Which one you choose depends mostly on personal taste and what the recipient will enjoy most. Flowers and plants make for a more unique gift than many of the standard options and can be a fun way to mix it up a bit, especially if you add in a little extra gift tucked into the foliage.
