Being an Auntie is a wonderful thing. I remember being so excited to meet my 2 nieces and couldn't wait to help look after them and be chief babysitter. It's also great as you get to hand them back at the end of the day and go and get a good nights sleep! I was an Auntie before becoming a Mum, and am now lucky enough to be both. The cousins get minded by their Nanny 2 days a week and the 4 of them just love playing together, so I hope they manage to stay close cousins as they grow up.
Here in the office Kate recently became an Auntie for the first time to baby Evie, and one of my best friends also became a Auntie to baby Benjamin (although technically not related by blood, she is very much an Auntie to my son's Rowan & Theo who absolutely love her!) As Auntie's tend to be spoilers and babysitters we often have to thank them and so presents for Auntie's are very popular. Lynne designed a couple of Gift Baskets For Aunts/Aunties which are especially themed, or of course you can pick any Gift Basket from our range and we can add a Special Aunt Gift Card to theme it.
Our No 1 Auntie Gift Basket is themed with a Aunt Gift Card, "Loveliest Auntie Ever" Mug and "With Love" scented candle. These are accompanied by drinking chocolate and marshmallows, chocolates, bath melts, bubble bath and body creme. So after a hard day looking after your kids she can go home to soak in a nice bubble bath followed by a mug of hot chocolate. She'll enjoy it so much that she might offer to take the children again and allow you the same luxury in return.
