Otter Pop Gift

101 Birthday Ideas for Friends

I am joining forces with Kristen Duke in her Birthday Celebration Week along with over 100 talented bloggers to share 101+ Birthday Gift Ideas for your Friends, including my Otter Pop Gift with Printable. A lot of these gifts are versatile for any occasion, and can be a to gift to your friends, family, or even that gal that you’d like to get to know better.
