Ideas for DH's birthday

Oh look, it's broadly a place to talk about special occasions, party tips and to swap present ideas but let's be perfectly honest, this forum is here because I want to get excited about CHRIIIIIISTMAS from about June onwards.

Ideas for DH's birthday

Postby sabrina fair » 20 Mar 2012, 10:19

Ideas please! I'm getting DH a book that he wants, but I was wondering if there's something that I could make him involving monkeybaby that would be an extra present. I'm thinking monkeybaby's handprints on something....? Thing is, I don't have a great deal of time before his birthday, and I'm busy getting everything sorted for going back to work, and preparing for monkeybaby's birthday party shortly afterwords, so it needs to be something fairly simple.

So...has anyone done anything like this? My creative side appears to be failing me at the moment!

I have seen butterfly canvases made from baby footprints.. like so http://funfamilycrafts.com/butterfly-foot-prints/ I think it would be nicer in a solid colour, but I'm pedantic like that. :D

Not sure where you are but this place is brilliant:-

http://www.clayart.co.uk/

You can get mugs, plaques, plates etc (range of stuff at all different prices, from about £8 upwards) that you can put baby handprints on. I did one for DH when DD was about 10 months old. It was lovely.

Thanks for the ideas. We've got a clay-art cafe place near here, but it takes around a week for them to fire the stuff which'll be too late. I'm tempted to have a go at this:

but I don't know when I'll find time to get the stuff and make it....of course if I spent a bit less time on the forum... ;-)

What about a photo item? Photo mug/ mouse mat etc? Something with the cheeky little face on it?
