I can't be the only parent who was not emotionally prepared for my child to start losing teeth. Of course I knew it would happen but no one told me I'd cry about it. (Or that I'd find old baby teeth in random places like my purse, bedside table and the kitchen windowsill for years–with and without explanation. But that's another story.)
But when you're a kid there's nothing more thrilling than losing your first tooth! It's an important milestone that firmly puts them in the big kid column but more importantly, it means the Tooth Fairy is on the way. One sweet way to get prepped for the arrival is with a Tooth Fairy box. Of course there are plenty of ways to DIY (mini Altoid tins are awesome for this!) but there are tons of adorable options if you'd rather buy something special. From handmade wooden Tooth Fairy boxes that can be personalized to superhero Tooth Fairy pillows, there's a design they're sure to love.
And pro tip: Though you may be tempted to go big for their first tooth and do something rash like slip a $20 under there, I'm telling you, it only leads to disappointment. Establish a low bar and thank me later. I mean they've got about 20 in there that are going to fall out eventually. Do the math and do yourself a favor. 😂
