This year give some gifts that have meaning and purpose. Gifts from small businesses that have a passion for what they do. These are three ideas for gifting that will be purposeful all year long.
Crafting It Forward Monthly Box
“Crafting It Forward is a way to create a magical environment for you and your family that has a purpose. Finding time each month to be present with your child and enjoy them is key to growing your relationship. Spending days at the park, storytime at the local library, and dates with your little one are all ways to bond your relationship for life. Crafting is a way to allow a child to be creative, learn rules, and work towards a goal together. Our vision is that every time you open your Crafting It Forward box you open a time and space for you and your child to grow and make memories together.” – Crafting it forward
