What do you get a 3 (turning 4) you that already has everything?

My boys are invited to a birthday party for a little boy that already has everything he could possibly want. I don't like giving gift cards to kids that don't understand their value. We're also on a very tight budget so I'm looking for something $10 or less.

  • Get him whatever you can and if it's a repeat, it's on him and his parents to figure what to do with it.

  • How much time til the party? At that age kids typically enjoy seeing their name on stuff. $10 on etsy (possibly ebay) would get something neato personalized like a pillowcase, stickers, etc

    speaking of stickers you can neeeeeeeeeeever go wrong with them. Or some kind of very cool halloween or bug related play doh set?

  • PS ... not knowing when the b-day is i can think of something amazing a broke friend threw together for my son last year when he turned 5. I think she probably did it for LESS THAN $10 but it was an enormous hit. His bday is 10/30 and she got him II assume from walmart) a gingerbread haunted house that he had a blast building, a card, and a huge monster truck balloon
