Alternative gift ideas for kids
DH and I are going to our niece's (his sister's daughter) birthday party soon and we need to buy a gift. She's turning 5. My concern is that I don't want to buy another toy because this child is so blessed (last grandchild/niece or nephew in the family) with so many toys. She has her bedroom bursting with toys plus the living room and more. Last Christmas her mom said she took a break from opening gifts because she received so many, that's how many she gets (lucky her)
Last year we gave our niece a Barnes and Noble gift card to buy some books since she's old enough to pick out ones she likes. Is it ok to do the same gift again? Honestly I'd rather put some money away in a college fund, but I don't believe her parents have one and I think it's rude to ask if they do. Any ideas on gifts that aren't toys, something she can maybe use later or a way to give her money for future use? Thanks for your help.
