Birthday presents for the year, done!

After stumbling upon Jenn’s website and found a blog entry on an internet company located in the States that personalizes gifts for kids, I decided to create my own for my nephews in Ireland. Kelan (to the left) will be 3 in July, and Ruairi will be 2 in December. I’m thinking of just getting the gifts primarily for Kelan as he’s at the age now where he probably will be starting to spell his name — sooner or later right? Plus he’s a boy, and likes trucks at the moment, hence the fire truck below. They’re a bit expensive to ship to Canada ($14.95 for Standard to Canada), ugh but the present is well worth it. Hopefully it will be really appreciated and kept, for a long time to come.

So please ignore the watermarks on the photos, but this is what I’ve picked out for  my little buddy, Keely-koo! I can’t wait for his birthday! I’m not going to order these yet as I’m still in this No Buy Month (gosh, March seems soo long when you can’t spend anything), but his birthday isn’t until July and I’ll have plenty of time to mail it over to him.

Above is a Fire truck place mat, customized with his name … AND I got to choose any city for the Fire Dept. location. The second, which is my absolute favorite thing in the world right now is the customized book.

Oh I don’t think I’ve been this giddy in such a long time. I love getting “awesome” gifts for my guys. I hope they have as much fun with it, as I have just browsing the website.  I’m definitely ranked up there as the (only) favorite Aunt. haha.
