She (3) starts nursery this week.
I've got her a card and a gift bag with a few bits and pieces, bubbles,pencils,colours,pad, that kind of thing.

DH asked me what the present was for then said its weird and you don't buy presents for that, I wanted to make a little fuss of her being a big girls and starting nursery for the first time

Who's unreasonable?

If her parents don't mind I think you can buy her a present for no reason at all. Yanbu

Unless you're going to drip feed that you bought her a pony or have skipped paying rent to pay for her present, yanbu

It's nice to buy presents for people

I think it's lovely and will help make starting nursery the exciting and wonderful experience that it should be! You sound lovely smile

Not weird.

I got my God son some big boy pants when he started potty training. I like giving gifts, it's my love language.

Thank you!
I like giving presents. I don't know how to tell him I have a bag of stationary for his Niece because she got the GCSEs she needs to go to college grin

I think it's lovely to buy your god daughter a gift. My little god daughter starts school tomorrow (today!) and I brought her book bag and PE bag and a little bag of goodies to have when she gets home from her first day. My elder god daughter is 19 and I brought her shoes for her prom - it's nice to buy presents and I love giving presents to people when they least expect it

Not strange at all. I bought my niece a card and a watch for starting school. She can't tell the time, but it will help her learn and I wanted to do something to mark her big day.

What a lovely lovely gesture! I would love it if my dd's had other significant adults that wanted to spoil and indulge them other than us parents!!

I echo the others. It's a lovely though and will reinforce her parents' decision that they made the right choice for godmother unlike many
