Gifts for parents

It's my MB's birthday at the end of the month and I am struggling to come up with a gift for DC 3.10 to make. As I look around the lounge there are already framed photos, hand and feet on canvas, framed hand/foot prints, framed paintings. So I'm looking for something abit different.

I have thought about getting a plain china bowl for DC to draw on with permanant marker and then put a plant in it - but not sure hmm A nice thing I have done before is get a plain plate and get the children to do a family portrait on it in permanant marker but not sure MB would like it/put it up etc.

So any ideas smile

Does MB want something at all? I've never done things for my bosses birthdays. If the children want to do something, then fine they can do a card, they could even go to the flowershop and buy some flowers. I would take the que from the child... it's what they want to get their parent that is important I feel.

Oh and discuss with DB, as I feel it is DB's role to sort out a present from the children for MB.

Paper basket, with peppermint creams (without dipping in chocolate if you don't want too much mess). Fairly easy for a nearly 4 year old to do, possibly with a little assistance.
