A mother saved all the things she found in her son's pockets when doing the laundry. She gave him this lamp with all things found as a wedding gift ~ such an AWESOME idea! (my son would need a much bigger lamp!
Love velcro idea for things in shadow box Put their first pair of shoes in a shadowbox and hang in their room. Use velcro on the backs to make them easy to take off if needed. Note to self: Shadowboxes can be found at Michaels.
Write a letter to your child or grandchild each year and include money for grad gift. I like this idea of writing a letter, and even adding money, but I think it'd be better to go longer than a grad gift. Wedding, first home, first child?
