your baby's first year: Send in clothes, blankets, sheets and even burp cloths. You can leave out the cloth diapers!

your young son or daughter: By age 5 your child will surely have had their own opinions about what to wear. Gather all of the clothes they have outgrown and find a story about their favorite things. Add some of your favorites, and the story will be complete!

your teenage daughter or son: Gather all of their old clothes that they once loved and cherished (even if you didn't) or create a story about their sports years with team uniforms and sweatshirts. A great graduation gift!

the newlyweds: Collect old threads today from both the bride and groom and give them their quilt as a wedding gift. How appropriate it will be to start their new life together with their intertwined past.
