When it comes to giving the kids, anything for any holiday we try to stay away from candy, With Devon it is so easy to find him something, his favorite stuff is sharks, Elmo, dinosaurs, and funny looking monsters. While I was looking for ideas I found the cutest idea.
Have heard of Budsies, that you can go to with any of your child's drawings, artwork, and other things to have it made into a plushie. Something that they drew and can have for a lifetime. Instead of the candy, they get a plushie of something they made or drew.
As an adult we are always taking selfies of ourselves, take one of those and make a plushie of yourself. Keep that with you at all times, and have a mini you with you, Devon loved the monster with the hearts, more than the dogs, he carries it around with him when he's eating and in the car when we are driving. Even though he's a monster he is a really adorable one. His hearts outweigh the fact he's got some big teeth.
Budsies are beautiful custom-sewn stuffed animals created from any drawing or photo. They are so done well and are to the exact picture of what you send.
Then if you want a stuffed animal of your favorite pet they can do that too. Petsies, the same way you would make them of the artwork they can make them of the pet you love and maybe have lost.
Huggables are made from super soft faux furs and are more cutesy and cuddly. They are a great gift for kiddos and pet lovers alike. They have the most talented designers and seamstresses custom-make and hand-sew every Petsies plush to match your pet's likeness.
Forevers are a more detailed lookalike of your pet, with premium faux furs and full airbrushing techniques to match every unique marking. They are the perfect keepsake to remember your lovable companion, past or present.
We also feature Petsies Stars which are perfect gifts for the social media obsessed Tweens & Teens (who are super hard to buy for!!) You can have your very own huggable (and undeniably cute) plush version of the top pet stars (Marnie, Oscar, Meatball, Crusoe and more!)
