Aunties play an important role in our children's lives. They are friends and confidants to our children, they are caregivers and playmates, but above all they are family. Taking time to show your family's appreciation for the aunties in your life is a nice way of saying thank you for all they do. Gifts that are personalised, cute and from the heart are the best to give.

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts are a wonderful spin on an otherwise generic item. You can take a plain old coffee mug and turn it into a sentimental gift that the recipient will cherish. Personalised gifts for aunts are a great way to remind them daily that you love and appreciate them. Some items that are easy to personalise are T-shirts, blankets, pillows, picture frames, keychains, coffee mugs, mouse pads, or wall calendars.

Personalise these items with the names of their nieces and nephews, or use a picture of them together. Another idea is to have a funny or a sweet saying, which includes her name and the names of her nieces and nephews.

Another personalised option is wall plaques. These can include loving poems with her name inserted at specific points, or a plaque dedicated to a hobby she loves, such as fishing, cooking, sewing, or shopping.

Jewellery

What woman doesn't love getting jewellery? Aunts are no different. There are many different options that are geared specifically towards celebrating the aunts in our lives. Specialised necklace pendants embossed with the word aunt are a sweet choice. There are also earrings, bracelets, charms and rings that all proudly show the title aunt on them and come in a variety of colour, quality, and jewels.

Sweet Treats

A basket containing your aunt's favourite goodies is also a nice gift to give. Include her favourite candies, chocolates, baked goods, meats, cheeses, teas or coffees and a Thank You or I Love You card. You can also add a personalised coffee mug, inspirational book, a stuffed animal or a movie she likes in order to round it out a bit. For an extra special spin, have your children bake the goodies with you and have them select from their own collection of stuffed animals to give to her. Their contribution will certainly make their aunt's heart happy.

Crafted by Little Hands

Getting your children involved in making their aunt's gift is a great way to make the present extra special, while teaching your children a valuable life lesson: the art of giving. Homemade cards, tissue paper flower bouquets, flower pots painted with hand and footprints, T-shirts coloured with fabric pens or paints, T-shirts with painted hand and footprints, or beaded bracelets or necklaces are fun projects that children enjoy doing.

The Gift of Time

Spending an afternoon together is a simple, yet appreciated, way to celebrate the aunts in our lives. A picnic lunch at a park, a day at the amusement park, or a day spent at home playing games, watching movies and doing crafts together are all great ways to say I love you.
