Whenever I visit with my family I take presents for the kids. They know that when they see me, there will be a gift for them - so they look forward to seeing me as I look forward to seeing them. Perfect win win!!
I took personalized rulers and bookmarks for the children.
The kids loved the rulers because they were personalized.
The rulers are made from thin plastic - so probably won't be the most functional ruler - but looked pretty and the kids loved them.
