I am not sure if you have a Joann Fabric store near you, but I have been able to find some of the color catchers and other stain removers on sale there on occasion, and they have coupons available online and if you sign-up you get a few more throughout the year. If you don't have a Joann store maybe other fabric/craft stores do to. I like to give such things to college students/new home owners.Lana, I think the cleaning gift will be very much appreciated. If I get all the items when they are on sale it should not cost me too much but will be a big savings for the kids. I will need to look for a stain remover pen and some colour catches, a great idea.
I use them too! I also have picked up the Carbona brand stain removers there in the past, one year it was a set (I think of 10 or 12) and I picked it up as a gift using a coupon. I missed browsing the aisles of a fabric store during 2020, but my local Joann store really embraced curbside and did a great job- I marveled at how fast they could fill the orders, but then I realized I wasn't there to distract them! LOL!I never thought to get color catchers at Joann’s! I use them with all the pesky red bleeding fabrics. Might be a better deal there with a coupon than the grocery store.
My son is always thrilled to get a box of cleaning supplies for a gift. He likes practical, useful gifts.
I am intrigued! Did you include recipes for the themed food bags or had you prepared the meals? My niece had a baby in July and twice I have made some energy balls for her and some mini pancakes (in mini muffin pans) for her 2 year old- I tried to fine the easiest things she could have on hand for some easy breakfasts- but luckily the new baby is a much better sleeper and eater than the first one! LOLThis year I made a "stay safe" bag for DS and DDIL with masks, hand sanitizer in different sizes, assorted wipes, etc. They said it was much appreciated.
And I did the themed food bags for them too which the enjoyed - Asian, Appetizers, Mexican, Italian, Sweets, etc.
I usually just make a note on my phone, otherwise I run the risk of someone seeing it or losing it. Haha I haven't yet bought a planner for this year. I have the monthly subscription that DH got me for 3 months, but it's a new journal for each month so I don't want to put it there. I do have a fresh, clean notebook in my purse so maybe i'll use that.Jess, very sensible of you. You also don't want to have to pack and move more than neccesary. Have you got a planner or binder where you will store all of your ideas?
