Looking for unique gifts for grandparents, teachers and friends? Children’s art is an ideal gift for all occasions. Here are a few suggestions.

Framed drawings and paintings
Some children like to give away paintings from their collection. Others prefer more personal renditions, such as memories of a picnic or roller-coaster ride shared with the recipient.

How to Get a Cheap Oil Change Without Getting Ripped Off Post 2
