DD started school two days ago and has already been invited to two birthday parties, one of which is on Saturday. Has anyone got any good ideas for pressies at less than £10 (preferably nearer £5)? All suggestions gratefully received.
Both girls so far, but I am starting to think I should have a drawer of things on stand by for any future last minute invites/emergencies - dd said that she got both invites on Tuesday but forgot to bring them home
Our stock birthday presents for girls consist of a kit to make your own necklaces in a butterfly case from Tesco which is just under £4. Another favourite is a Barbi musical jewellery box which is around £5, again from Tesco.
crafty things - mosaic sets, spirograph game, etc(about £5 from Woolworths).
games like fishing game, beetle (also about £5 from woolworths). little lego sets £5-10, sometimes in sale.
Bug colleting kits (that was about £7 from science shops or online websites) - that was my 5yo dd's favourite present I think.
Fennel, my dd keeps asking
"When will I get one of the barbie boxes" We have bought so many for her friends, but she doesn't have one. I even thought about asking tesco's if they coudl give me a discount for bulk buying!
You are all wonderful, we live about 20-30 miles from any decent shops so I don't get the opportunity to browse around very often. Will be heading into town tomorrow after the school run to stock up on presents.
Problem solved - have been into town today and stocked up on hair braiding, wind chime making and necklace creating kits as well as gel pens, notebooks, sparkly pencils and various associated products. I think the girl in woolworths thought I had gone mad, I bought at least three of everything.
*huge thanks to all who gave me inspiration*
