Each year parents have to buy new school uniforms for their little or older children. With children forever growing this can become extremely costly and by the end of the year our children have either outgrown their school uniforms or they are looking a little tatty. It can be such a shame when we have to throw them away.
There are few different options that have recently become available for school clothing to be swapped, donated or sold on social media and some schools in the UK have introduced a system that allows the parents to do a clothes swap of dropping off and picking up of pre-worn items.
This time of year can be a very daunting time for children moving onto their next stage of their lives, whether they are leaving year 6 and moving into secondary school, finishing pre-school or finishing school for good.
There are lots of keepsake ideas available to buy that can help your child remember those special treasured times for years to come.
At infinity keepsakes we make handmade memory gifts from cherished pre- loved school uniforms. They are a wonderful way to up-cycle your uniforms and for your child to have an unforgettable gift. We do a range of keepsakes including bears, cushions and memory boxes.
