Baby registries are wonderful tools for helping new parents stock their nursery with the infant essentials every growing family needs. But while registries include important items like car seats and travel systems, they tend to overlook gifts that can help a new mom relax, celebrate, and adjust to her new role in life. The next time you are shopping for a new or expectant mom, consider going off the registry and purchasing one of these thoughtful gifts instead.

Parties are a great way to celebrate a graduate's achievement with family and friends. Here are some ideas to help you host a party with lots of pomp and circumstance, whether your student is graduating from Kindergarten, high school or college.
Grade A Invitations
Make a grad cap invitation from black cardstock tied with a tassel and write details in silver ink. Or, make personalized report cards with party details added. If you're celebrating a little one's graduation, use lots of block letters and a variety of colors - even let the guest of honor get involved in decorating the invitations with crayons or colored markers. For a high school graduate, including "Before" and "After" pictures of the guest of honor is a creative way to show the student's progress throughout the years.
