$20 Gifts for Kids
One of my mom friends asked for this category. We just had two birthday parties so I was able to ask my kids what they liked the most from their stack of gifts. I also periodically check Marshalls and T. J. Maxx for birthday party gifts to stock up my supply– hidden from the kids, of course!. A great gift for girls is a blank or lined diary or fancy notepad and the Marshalls near my house seems to almost always have great ones for half-off which I like to give with a book (you know me, I love books!).
