Goodies Galore: Children’s Birthday Party Gift Ideas

With school resuming, the time honored traditions that accompany it are in full swing as well. Cue the after-class lessons, team sports aplenty and, of course, birthday parties! Whether your child’s invitation comes through your mailbox or inbox, these gift finds will make celebrating the birthday girl or boy as easy as RSVPing.

You may notice that many of these picks are as functional as they are adorable, that is by design. You may not know every toy in the recipient’s play room but chances are she wears pajamas and always needs a multipurpose pouch. I know not all Stuffy Muffy readers have young children but if you are a grandparent or have friends with little ones, hopefully you’ll find these ideas helpful as well!

  • Personalized Pencil Case: This was our go-to gift for all parties this past school year. Perfect for boys and girls alike as you can choose the colors. Shipping is free and quick, it comes wrapped and with colored pencils to boot! We paired it with a sticker book or note pad for close friends. ($17)
  • Monogrammed Water Resistant Pouch: Perfect for school bags, pool bags, beach totes and lunch boxes. Super cute personalization options and fun colors! ($15)
  • Nylon Pouch with Patches: Think Stoney Clover Lane for a third of the price. Impress the birthday girl with this cool zipper bag customized just for her. ($14) For more sizes at equally reasonable price points, try these.
  • Personalized Seersucker Zipper Bag: A child can never have enough bags! These are fantastic for trips as they hold everything from a small toy collection to a ton of toiletries. ($19)
  • Monogrammed Initial Hat: The sporty profile of a baseball cap perfectly offsets the darling details of Liberty fabric initials (or gingham for the guys!). This one will be a home run, $26.
  • Personalized Liberty Print Stationery: Cute correspondence the birthday girl will delight in! A fun floral border and monogram make for heartfelt thank you notes. ($25)
  • Personalized Sketch Pad: He will create to his imagination’s content with this locomotive-themed drawing pad. Just the right size to tuck into a backpack or tote on the go. ($12)
  • Petite Plume Pajama Set: These are a lovely little luxury that will ensure sweet dreams. We own a few sets and they are by far the favored pajamas in our house! Add personalization for an extra special touch. ($58)
  • Vintage Bookshelf CandyLand Game: The classic board game in all its old fashioned glory! It folds into a pretty volume that fits right on their bookshelf. ($37)
  • Shell and Pearl Jewelry Set: Add some sophistication to her dress up drawer with this marvelous mermaid necklace and bracelets set from Super Smalls. We play with these baubles quite a bit! ($49)
  • Casa Tote: A special place to store her treasures that looks beautiful on a nightstand, dresser or desk. ($59)
  • Sticker Gift Tags: Don’t forget the hassle-free gift wrapping! I always wrap children’s gifts in clear cellophane with a big bow and these personalized stickers. Choose from one child or two for siblings! ($30)
The Casa Tote, all wrapped and ready to gift.
