Our children may have 18 birthday parties before they leave home, but they will be the guests to MANY birthday parties in these younger years. So, now the challenge, what to buy the birthday child? It seems now-a-days kids have SO many toys, so it can be difficult finding something that they may not already have. I get a huge thrill in finding unique gifts and then wrapping them in a special way. One idea to help you get started on your gift shopping is to maybe start with the theme and/or colors of the child's party. I love online stores such as Moolka. They carry European toys, which I love because they are made with materials like wood and fabric versus all the plastic we see here in the US, and the shop is fabulous because you can search for toys by theme, color, age, etc. It makes gift shopping so easy.
Great wrapping with a great gift goes hand in hand. I just love these bunting flags for gift wrapping that I found at French Toast Friday.... they go perfectly with my carnival themed gifts above.
