Birthday Gift Receiving Tip

Ann is preparing for her son's birthday party and it reminded me of the way I have helped Princess receive gifts at her birthday parties over the years.

I love birthday parties. One thing I do for Princess is have each of her guests individually sit beside her when she opens the present. Each person gets a turn being close when their present is opened. That way two things are served: 1) the guest gets to literally give the present to the birthday girl and 2) I have a photo documentation of what said guest gave the birthday girl. Handy for writing thank you notes. It has also turned out to be a sweet way to encourage focusing on being thankful to that person for giving the gift.
For more fun tips, hit the WFMW on Wednesdays at We Are THAT Family.
