We are swapping [late christmas] gifts between the cousins when we meet at the beach next month [first time we have all been together for ages] . Since an even amount of cousins are about we have [for the last couple of years] made it so each child buys a cousin a gift.
Yes, you guessed right, we are making ours but adding a few other things – books/crayons/thrifted lego! [you know the real stuff that can build anything, not like the packs they sell these days]
I asked around [mainly at playcircle] to get gift ideas for a two and a half year old boy. A mother with three boys said the fishing rod set would go down well, so I ran with it.
Felt fish stuffed with wool and a magnet in the mouth. My clever boyfriend sanded a dip at the top of the rod and attached the line for me..thank you [now that’s a sweet valentine].
