Year 1 - Paper. Paper sounds like an easy one to me, Here one clever lady made these heart garlands out of her left over wedding invitations. Or what about a piece of art combining each of your thumbprints
Year 2 - Cotton - So how about a beautiful vintage hankerchief with a personalised message, like these? Or what about a special tag sewn into a favourite piece of clothing.
Year 3 - Leather. What about a hard back leather bound copy of a favourite book? Or splurge and get a piece of leather furniture? The big A would especially like this
Year 4 - Fruit and Flowers. Hmmmm so you could make baked goods with fruit, cherry pie anyone? Or perhaps a bottle of wine with a custom made label.
Year 5 - Wood. There are some cute ideas here, I love the idea of pencils with a special message or what about carving a tree with your initials?
Year 10 - Tin or Aluminium. Cookies baked in a tin case could be a good idea, or perhaps some special balloons.
