I have found it is much easier if I create a theme for the gift. I normally have at least one item in mind. Exactly like the farm-themed birthday gift I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago. It started with the Fisher-Price barn; and then I added the books and puzzle. I've also gifted (as shown above), a classic Tonka metal dump truck with a copy of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site for a little boy's birthday.
Here are few other ideas you might like or hopefully will simply inspire you to create a themed-gift collection of your own for the next special birthday boy or girl on your shopping list.
I love the presentation of gifts wrapped like a gift basket. I have a huge roll of cellophane and striped ribbon that I keep on hand making it easy to put one of these gift collections together in no time at all.
