Woodland Fairy Birthday Party Package for 10

One of my favorite things to do is put my feet up and browse the genius of people far more creative and talented than myself. And I just stumbled on this Fairy Nana Land shop on etsy, where I love every little thing.

If my little pixies could still fit into a girls size 6, I don’t think I’d be able to resist this Woodland Fairy Party Package for 10.

What an enchanting, memorable, magical (and easy) birthday party this would be for your little imp . You’ll get 10 woodland fairy costumes and accessories. Included in the package (and available in sizes from 2T to 6) is 10 tulle tutus bedecked with flowers and ferns and leaves, 10 ruffle sleeved leotards with leaves on and flowers on the neckline, 10 fairy wands, 10 fairy crowns and 10 fairy wings – with glitter and ribbons. And there are various add-ons, too, like fairy favor buckets and boas and glittery sunglasses. I can think of lots of little girls who would think this to be one heavenly birthday party.

If the price for this 10-pack package falls outside your fairy birthday party budget, you can also purchase costumes a la carte for your favorite little fairy – like this little number:

O be still my heart!

Boom Boom Cards

These cards help you to go beyond random acts of kindness – to create intentional acts of kindness.

This is a set of 26 cards, each featuring a creative idea for intentional acts of kindness. You’ll find yourself  writing a letter to someone who inspired you, picking up the trash on your street, giving genuine compliments, and more.

And then use the cards to create a chain reaction of covert kindness…

How to Boom Boom!

1) Do the revolutionary act of kindness on the card.

2) Go to boomboomrevolution.com and tell your story and upload pictures and video.

3) Pass the card on to anyone (a friend, a stranger, your mom).

4) Follow your card on the website’s map as it moves across the globe!

Boom Boom Cards were created by Mary Beth Campbell and Helene Scott to incite an “uprising of guerilla goodness.” Click here to read more of the story of Boom Boom.

Set comes with calling card note pad, mini pencil and canvas carrying case.

Things We Love: Design-it-Yourself Gift Baskets

Design It Yourself Gifts and Baskets

Review by: AMCMom

Where to buy: www.designityourselfgiftbaskets.com

Gift baskets make wonderful and unique presents. And this site allows you to build your own custom gift baskets, so they are just right for your recipient.

First, you’ll select a theme (from chocolate lovers, coffee lovers, new baby, wine enthusiasts, and more – you’ll even find more unusual themes like “flavors of Texas.”)

Then you’ll choose a container – from leather boxes to wicker baskets to cool antique-looking trunks. Then you’ll fill it with a range of different specialty and gourmet items – everything from wine to delicious chocolates and other food delicacies to  themed coffee mugs, balloons and stuffed animals.

Of course, you can also purchase the site’s Standard Gift Baskets, where you opt for a standardized already made-up gift basket, such as Baby Gift Basket or the Chocolate Gift Basket.

Or you can take the Gift Express Option, which allows you to choose a budget and an occasion and the company will handpick appropriate items.

Whether you are looking for the perfect basket for a loved one or even a corporate gift, Design It Yourself Gifts and Baskets is a fun site to browse.
