Birthday Ideas

It seems this year was a whirl wind with several birthday invites.  One of our favorite things to give our friends is a bag that is designed for them.  I simply buy a three pack of plain canvas bags at a craft store, along with some fabric paint.  We decorate it and put in items that would go well with that friend.  Here are some ideas:

* Art Tote: Decorate with the child’s name, bright colors and drawings and fill it with various art and craft supplies.

* Book Bag: We recently did this for a friend of Ayla’s and it was a big hit.  We wrote I heart (drew a heart) Books.  We filled it with some of her favorite books.

* Beach Bag: I am thinking this is great for a summer birthday.  Decorate the bag with a sun or the water and write “Beach Boy” or “Surfer Girl” on it and fill it with a water bottle, chapstick, sunscreen, cute flip-flops, etc.

* Doll Bag: Decorate the bag with drawings of dolls and include a doll along with some accessories

I have gotten a lot of great responses with these gifts.  Be creative and have fun giving gifts!!
