Gifts Ideas

Lantern Tree Photgraphy

Lantern Tree Photography

For grandparents, parents, and other family members, photos always make a great gift. You can give them as is or use them to create personalized gifts like t-shirts, mousepads, coffee mugs, quilts, and more.

Finding an affordable Indianapolis photographer who can handle uninterested little ones and impatient husbands is always a challenge. Shannon of Lantern Tree Photography did an amazing job of capturing their personalities. Plus by asking them where they’d like their photo taken and giving them jobs, she worked with them, instead of against them to get great family photos!

Mighty Mug

With a toddler under foot and a computer often nearby, spilled coffee can become one expensive accident. But, because I do have a serious love of coffee, I was thrilled when my Mighty Mug arrived. The first thing I did was sit it on the counter and challenge my kids to knock it over. They nudged, pushed, and even pulled hard, but the mug wouldn’t budge. Because there’s a simple trick to easily pick up this mug, we think this fun gadget will make a great gift for coffee lovers!

Available only at Target for $14.99-$19.99.
