My son (8) got his first invite to a birthday party. Unfortunately, my dh and I got invited to a wedding that same day at the same time (5:30) so I had already arranged for my ex-husband to take the kids that weekend (he lives an hour away). He will pick up the kids Friday, the party is on Saturday so basically my son can't make it to the party . I already explained it to the boy's mother.
My son and this kid seem to have become really good friends at school, so, I would at least like to send a birthday gift in for him to give to the friend on Friday. Would a gift card be ok? Or an actual gift wrapped toy be better?
