People with kids often get busy with digital photos …. But photos don’t always tell the story. This journal is a super-fun idea for your friend who has children and wants to capture all the cute things they say – if only to bring them up at their 21st birthday!

  1. A gift for thousands of healthy lunches

Keeping soups or lunches hot is a challenge in winter. A Food flask from Thermos is a great gift for those who like to take their own lunch and keep it hot.

  1. A gift for the environment
