  • A learning game, some books, a movie, a fun day at Disney Land or some theme park?

  • A bike at this age. A pop up play fort. Or you can find some toys that have been stashed up that haven't been played with for a while and re-gift :)

  • Nothing. Lol.

    Well, that's what we do anyway!

    Seriously though, my REAL answer to that is clothes. But if your child doesn't need anything, there's no reason to waste your money on something new just to make it something new.

  • As tempting as it is to go out and buy a bunch of stuff for the birthday, just get one thing. Go through the stuff and tuck away anything that hasn't been played with for a while. If they don't ask for it over the next month, either rotate toys around and move out some old stuff, or just get rid of it.

  • at this age he isnt going to notice if you regift him an older toy he hasnt seen in a while, or giving him something he needs, like a toothbrush/tooth paste set. really at this age, the most fun is in the unwrapping. get him winter clothes, and let your guests get him toys, or even ask them for clothes, or no gifts at all. I am big on rotating my sons toys. Its almost time to rotate again. Also before his birthday/christmas is when I go through the toy box and toss broken toys, and get rid of things hes too big for

  • well, I would give him money for his saving account. at this age everyone else will be spoiling him and he doesn't know mom and dad didn't get him a gift or even when he's older, he can know mommy and dadddy put money in the bank for his presents.
