It isn’t always easy to know what to buy for a baby gift. I always want to find something that will be used but also something that will last. So, for my nephew’s 1st birthday, I purchased a Big Ear Piggy Bank from Child to Cherish on Amazon. It looked really cute when I picked it out and I was even more impressed when I received it. The bank is bigger and lighter than I expected and it is well made! As I thought about the piggy bank and saving money for the future, I started thinking about all of the things we want the children in our lives to save for the future. I decided to add a special feature to this piggy bank to make it a Bank of Love. Alongside the piggy bank is a mason jar with strips of paper for adding words of wisdom, fun memories or bits of advice. When my nephew gets older and spends the money in his piggy bank, the words of love written by his family and friends will remain in the bank forever.
I can’t wait to give this Big Ear Piggy Bank from Child to Cherish to my nephew for his first birthday. Although he won’t appreciate it at his young age, I know his parents will and someday when he is older he will have a treasure!
