If you’ve been around here for a little while, you’ll remember that a few months ago we lost our family dog. It was so hard on all of us, especially the kids. They still talk about her almost every day, and go visit her at our “Harley Tree” where she is buried. I wanted to create something special for them to remember her. I wish I could bottle up the look on their faces when they saw the gifts.
Shutterfly has so many perfect options, whether you want to go more sentimental, or put a fun spin on your gift. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you!
- Engraved Jewelry: I fell in love with these necklaces as soon as I saw them. I love how simple and delicate they are, making them perfect for every day where. I added our dogs name, Harley, and Hayden already told me she never wants to take it off. haha.
- Canvas Tote Bags : I thought these were such a fun gift idea. The little people are getting to the ages where they fight over who gets what more often than not. I love that personalizing with their names really makes it their own and gives it that special touch. (plus it takes out the fighting) We plan on using them for their sleepover bags when we travel and they can’t wait. Plus how cute are all the fun color options?!
- Fleece Blankets: This is my favorite of all the personalized gifts. The little people are obsessed and luckily it is big enough for them all to snuggle so they don’t even have to take turns. Besides being such a sweet memory of our Harley pup, the sherpa is soooo cozy and warm which has been perfect for this cold Utah winter. Hayden said, “this blanket is not leaving my body! Not even for school mom!” haha.
- Memory Games + Puzzles: These are so fun and I love how they turned out! It makes a simple activity that much funner to see a familiar face. They were so easy to order + we love playing with them, I think I’m going to order more for their birthdays!
