Sports Birthday GiftIf you’re like me, then it seems like your kids are constantly going to birthday parties every weekend. And let me tell ya’, gifts can get expensive, especially when you have to get so many!

This year, I have decided to get ahead of the gifting game and try something different. While I was in my local Dollar Tree, I came up with the idea to create themed gift baskets to give for my kids’ friends’ birthdays! Dollar Tree has a huge selection of snacks, sweets, games, toys, décor, and so much more all for just $1 each. I figured if I turned them into “themed” baskets, tailored towards each recipient’s interests, then the kids would not only love their personalized basket, but they would get a variety of gifts and I could stay within my budget!

So, my son has one of his best friends’ birthdays coming up and he is really in to sports, specifically, football. Thankfully, football season has arrived, so celebrating birthdays on game days makes for an extra special celebration! Therefore, I have created a customized game-day gift basket. I loaded it with his favorite snacks, drinks, and treats to enjoy while watching the game and even added a football for a bit of fun!

You could even make these gift baskets for tailgates in the parking lot or to enjoy while watching the game on your television at home. Mix it up and switch out the snacks or football for additional sports toys like a soccer ball or basketball. The possibilities are endless!
