What should I get for a 5 year old girl's birthday?

My son's classmate invited him to a birthday party, I don't even know who this kid is, (not actually in his class but the same age) The way his school works they are together for afternoons and I think she leaves before my son. I have no clue what to get a girl to start with, I planned on asking the mom, but I only got a voice mail when I RSVPd. We have never gone to a party for a child we don't really know. In the past it has always been good family friends that I knew very well. I don't even know how much to spend. Money is kinda tight but I don't want to go empty handed. Thank you for any suggestions.

  • You can get her a My Little Pony Doll, they are $6.99 at Toys R Us. Even the little Strawberry Shortcake Dolls are under ten dollars. Girls are so easy. Just think cute. Even sweet pony tail holders or any other hair ribbons,bows or barrets will do.

  • Get her a fairy or princess themed sticker book or activity book. You can find these at the dollar stores and my grandchildren love that sort of thing.

  • Hit the craft section in the toys at Wal-Mart or Target and get something that's for her age level. Play-doh, etc.
