It seems birthday party season is upon us and I have such difficulty with the whole present thing.
I love presents and I love giving them but I also struggle with the amount some people spend on children’s birthday party gifts and when your child gets invited to several birthdays during the year how much can you end up spending. Or do you just buy cheap ‘landfill’ knowing it won’t last much longer than the party???
On the other hand I don’t want my child to be the kid who brings stink presents to birthdays ….. catch 22??
So mainly I try to make the gifts my boys take but it’s not easy – especially for boys. This year it is 6-year-old birthdays and I have decided that personalised cushions are going to be the order of the day. Flip choose the colours and helped with the design so he felt proud and happy taking it with him.
This is the latest for a birthday last weekend and you’ll be seeing more over the next month judging by the invites coming in!
How do you feel about buying gifts for multiple other children during the year, what is your ‘go to’ gift and what is your price guide??
