Family traditions serve a couple of different purposes: first, they instill a pride and awareness of a person’s heritage, and secondly, they help keep precious memories alive of dearly departed family members. Traditions can range from naming a firstborn child after a grandparent to giving a specific gift on a certain birthday. Even families that have current traditions in place can start new ones, and The Giggle Guide® has a great suggestion: a Jubilee Keepsakes First Birthday Cake Knife. This novel gift is given to new parents for their baby’s first birthday, then used on every subsequent birthday, or saved for use at the child’s wedding.
