WWYD? Preschool Bday party invite (gifts for 5yr olds?)

I got the invite Tuesday morning. I must RSVP today.

Its for two girls in the class who have the same bday (off by one day) and so the parents decided to throw a joint bday party at a “My Little Gym”. Both are turning 5.

So I have to buy two gifts?

What do you get 5yr olds and I'm on a very limited budget.

Maybe I should just decline?

Chat Icon If I had known I could have budgeted. I think we need a bday list *sigh*

Two kids, two gifts. If I were strapped financially, I would just buy a smaller gift for each kid.

What about a DVD? Target has a bunch of kids DVDS in the $10-15 range and if you get a gift receipt, they can always return if they already have them.

unless you don't know the second kid AT ALL, I would get two gifts

If you want to be more inexpensive, stay AWAY from the toy aisles! Check by the crafts, books, sports etc.

What is your budget per kid?

its easy to get affordable gifts for that age. The biggest hits at my 5yr old DD's birthday were M&D crafty gifts, like:

They're on amazon for $7-8.

There are 22 kids in DD's pre-k class, so I already decided to be consistent & fair, I am saying no. We already got one and I couldn't pick that kid out of line up if I tried!

Yes 2 gifts.

I would go to 5 below or Wal-Mart / AC Moore and get an art and craft kit. I looked online and found many for less than $10 bucks a set.


If you go to AC moore, look for the coupons they mail out for 20% off.



ETA: found this ar TRU and its $8 bucks. I thought it was cute.

I would get them both a subscription to National Geographics magazine for Kids. It'll cost you $15 per subscription and I bet you the parents will love it! My son received it from one of his friends and I thought that was such a cool idea. I didn't even know it was so inexpensive! He gets so excited when they come in the mail!

Those craft ideas are great. They are by Melissa & Doug I believe. AC Moore sells them. They have a good selection in the children's section. I have a 40% off coupon for AC Moore right now that I got emailed with today. email me at [email protected] if you want me to forward them to you. You can print out 2 and get on line 2 times to get both gifts for both girls at 40% off Chat Icon

My DD is 6 and another great gift that we've given at 5 years of age is board games. Games llike Monopoly Jr. Scrabble Jr, Operation, Connect 4, and Guess Who? are great games at $5. You can get them for around $10 each at target. We have a lot of fun with board games in our house!

Thank you! I'm so nervous I'll seem cheap Chat Icon Chat Icon When really I am on a super tight budget for our Disney trip. These $10 came out of my $40 allowance for gas.
