With Fall comes the onset of birthday party invitations, and round three of my “Bulk Birthday Gifting”.
Each Autumn I come up with an idea for a universal birthday gift that would apply to both genders and is age-appropriate for kids my girls’ age.
The first year I did this, I made up craft baskets.
Last fall I stocked away about 24 Claw Machines.
This year I’m buying for kids between 7 and 9 years old.
How about a night at the movies with a friend (or sibling)!
Costco sells passes that include an admission and treats – so it’s a great way to have a treat.
But who wants to open pieces of paper?
Let’s ramp this up a bit:
Kernel’s popcorn in “Say Cheese” flavour, a couple of popcorn containers to enjoy it in, and a couple of chocolate bars for a double movie night – one at the theatre, and another at home!
Unfortunately, this gift isn’t as easy to stockpile – the popcorn would be stale if I bought ahead of time, but the rest I can have handy to make up this year’s birthday gifts.
I’m kind of wishing it was my birthday.
Have a great one!
