So, our oldest daughter is turning six next week. We decided to throw her her first big kids party. We've invited all her friends and some kids from her class will be there. (Around 18 kids total.) It's a star wars themed party and I have made up all kinds of games, bought masks and prizes for the kids, made star wars themed decorations and really done a lot to make this party exciting. I will have spent around $60 total to throw the party. This is way more than we usually spend on our kids' birthday gifts. We usually have a $30 limit on birthdays. I think that throwing the party for her should be her gift. (Especially with X-mas coming up so soon.) Hubby thinks we need to buy her an actual gift. What do ya'll think?
