Do you have a birthday box?

My boys are seven and eight and throughout the year they get invites to a lot of parties.  This means that I have to find presents for these children.  A birthday box is not a new thing, in fact my mum had one!

A tend to keep an eye out during the year and January is a great time to stock up with items from the sale or from ebay.  I even do not have issues giving away second hand toys (as I wrote about here for the Making Money Go Further Blog).

Some recent additions have been from Paperchase where we bought some Robot jigsaw erasers and also some wooden stamp sets.  Children of all ages adore stationery.

The book people often have some fantastic book sets that you can split into smaller gifts.  We love these LEGO Minifigure sticker books which work out at less than a £1 each.

Small LEGO kits are also a fab present and gratefully received. so we always keep an eye on LEGO Deals Facebook page for bargains throughout the year.

LEGO Legends of Chima 70000: Razcal's Glider is currently less than £8 on Amazon so perfect Birthday gift price.

We also love these Hand tattoos and they are great to split up and add to other gifts.


  1. I have a gift box, and great intentions to stock up with gifts suitable for all types, especially children of a similar age to mine, but somehow I still end up picking something up from the supermarket a couple of days before the party!

  2. I need to start doing this, we seem to have a party every weekend at the moment. It's a nightmare!!

  3. I love the idea of having a gift box! Might have to give it a try - collect things throughout the year so something is always available and handy for the kids instead of madly dashing to grab something from nearby. Thanks for the idea!! Just have to keep it hidden from them ;)


I love comments and will try to respond to all
