family game night {a gift}

Do your kids get invited to birthday parties over and over and over and over?  Between my 3 little ones {miss teen is past that stage}, some weekends seem to be about running from party to party.


Lately, I feel like I’ve been wanting to give more creative or meaningful gifts to the girls friends.  And I suppose it doesn’t help that I’m not really the most creative gift-giver to begin with.

Anyway.  I had a stroke of gift-giving genius right in the middle of good-ol’ Tarjay and figured I might as well share it with y’all!

So.  I was passing through the toy department waiting for something to jump out at me, when I came to the game aisle.  Yes! a game.  Perfect!  But just a game?  Boring.

What can I to make it a little more exciting?  I’ll put together “a family game night” package!

What to include?

  • a game {play}
  • popcorn {snack}
  • children’s cd {listen}
  • gift card to Domino’s {eat}

Perfect, no?  If not … at least humor me and say you think it is … :)

    what a great and inventive idea…..don’t you just love Tarjay?

    I love this idea Tracie. I am so stealing it for my girls’ friends. I always struggle with Birthday gifts. They would love this. Thanks for sharing your idea!

    great idea!!! ;)

    That’s totally awesome and adorable!! What game did you get?

    If you’ve never heard of Five Crowns, I totally recommend it! It’s a card game with five suits and then you basically play a sort of progressive rummy with it. It’s super fun and we’ve found that kids 8+ can pretty much handle it, or at least sit on a parent or grandparent’s lap.

    Where can I sign up on the “have Tracie send me a package on my birthday” list just to see what beautiful thing you put together. :)
