I just love celebrating birthdays! I wonder if I will ever outgrow that? I know some women mourn when their birthday rolls around, but I love it. This week though we are celebrating my little boy’s birthday. And I love celebrating my kid’s birthday too! And my friends and neighbors and family. He’s turning 7 and I have parties on my mind. Last week I shared birthday invitations. Today I have some creative birthday gift ideas. I am calling the first a Birthday in a Box and the second A Party in a Jar:
This Birthday in a Box is so easy! I think of it as something you might send to a college kid away at school or someone who needs a little pick me up other than having a treat delivered to them. You can put whatever you want in it, but here’s what I put in mine:
- Cake Mix
- Fun Cupcake liners
- Party Blowers
- Fun Straws
What else would you put in it? Who would you give it to?
Here’s the party in a jar:
This is actually what I am giving my son for his birthday today. (Can I confess that he found it in my closet and I lied and told him it was for someone else! Little stinker!)
He didn’t have a lot of ideas of what he wants for his birthday so I decided to get creative and made this. It’s a compilation of things he loves, all stuffed down into a jar. So easy and could be done for ANYONE! Just choose things they like, get a jar of any size and go for it!
Here’s what I put in mine:
- Favorite candy bars
- Small football
- Small Minecraft toy
- Gift Card to his favorite place-Pizza Hut!
- Tic Tacs
- Punch Balloons
Really, you could do anything with this! I used a large cookie jar size jar for it but if you want to go smaller just try a mason jar!
Now, want to make it extra fun, add a cute birthday tag. I have lots to choose from here:
I want to hear your spins on this idea! If you make one for someone, come tell me about it!
