The ongoing pandemic has overturned your kids’ classes, school, and extracurricular activities - not to mention their major life events and celebrations. At this time, there are limited or no birthday parties, limited or no graduation festivities, limited or no social gatherings to celebrate personal milestones. There are also limited or no sports games, music recitals, and school plays your kids looked forward to participating in while you sat in the audience, cheering them on! As a result, your children continue to mourn the loss of these missed milestones and experiences.

Here is a list of ideas you can pamper the special people in your life during lockdown. And if you are like me, you can drop hints or ideas to others, so they know what to do on your special day.
Your child’s graduation, whether from elementary school, junior high, or high school, is a big deal and should be celebrated! It is the completion and advancement of your child’s education and celebrating this important milestone encourages your child to continue learning throughout their life.
The baby shower has some pretty strong traditions that haven’t really changed over the years: either a pink or blue theme with the standard steamers, clothespin game, and obligatory assortment of snacks... but not to worry, because 2019 is bringing in some new baby shower trends to make the biggest change in one’s life a true celebration! There are so many ways to celebrate to match any budget or taste, and you’re not limited to pink and blue anymore.
