*This post is brought to you in partnership with www.makeamat.com. I received free product to facilitate my review. Opinions are my own. 

 If you’re anything like me, you’re always at a bit of a loss when it’s time to buy a gift. I wander up and down the toy aisles – wondering what the child has….and what their mom is silently hoping they won’t get! So many of the options are the same. Last year, my son literally received a Nerf  gun from EVERY child at his party. Wouldn’t it be great if kids could give (and receive) a gift with character? A gift that will last? A gift that will get used? A personalized gift is the perfect solution!

Make a Mat allows you to create a personalized placemat that a child in your life will love (and actually use!) You can choose from 17 different hand-drawn themes – including Fairies, Robots, Dragons, and Mermaids!

The mats are sturdy, durable and easy to clean. As a former teacher and homeschooling parent, I love that they feature the uppercase alphabet. As your child enjoys their meal, you can talk about the letters- pointing them out, asking your child to point to certain letters, etc.

Uses for the mat:

  • Meals and snacks
  • Art! (Great to use to protect your table from paint!)
  • Playdough
  • Homeschooling/Learning Activities (My kindergartner likes to have her mat out during writing time!)

The mats retail for $24, and can be purchased at: https://makeamat.com/ (And if you buy two mats – the shipping is free!) I hope you’ll consider choosing a mat from www.makeamat.com the next time you need to buy a gift. The designs are colorful and happy, the mats are sturdy and multi-purpose, and every child LOVES to see their name on things! Please check them out!
