Unusual March Holidays
- MARCH 4, 2013
- By Selena Kohng
This year, March isn’t just about St. Patrick’s Day or Easter. Did you know, for example, that March is National Frozen Food Month, or National Social Workers Month? With all the wacky, unexpected and yet legitimately official reasons to celebrate, we’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for these unique holidays.
National Craft Month
Start a new tradition for your kids who get cabin fever during spring break; pull out a few wrapped arts and crafts kits in the name of celebrating March. Little ones will love the accomplished feeling of creating their own pillow from start to finish by knotting pieces of fleece together, available in designs like a peace sign or smiley face. Doll lovers will create a whole family with this complete wooden doll set, while little boys will stop bouncing off the walls long enough to be entranced by this make our own vehicle magnet set. Got older crafters on your list? A craft beer home brew kit counts as arts and craft, right?

Music in Our Schools Month
If your child’s school is lucky enough to have a music program, this is the perfect time to honor the music teacher. This personalized watch is a whimsical montage of music-related items, and this personalized notepad holder is a distinguished way for him or her to jot down notes (like reminding himself to give your kid an A+). The marching band teacher will appreciate this artisan-crafted lamp made from a real flute, and sentimental yet tasteful jewelry include a piano keys bangle and sheet music pendant.

Something on a Stick Day
March is full of zany holidays, but this one tops them all. It falls on March 28 this year and is a great excuse to spoil somebody with something, well, on a stick. How about a crowd favorite, like a giant gummy bear on a stick? Better yet, a mustache? Or go a more tasteful—but still tasty—route with a set of hot chocolates on a stick that is sure to be an annual tradition.
