Got an Answer?
Maybe a little book or colouring book? Or a small puzzle? Kmart has lots of things for $5.
P.S. to everyone saying "how rude" etc of the parents - each to their own. No need to be judgmental, if OP is offended she can simply decline the invite, but as she's asking for gift suggestions it's fair to say that she's happy to spend the $5 on an extra present.
And if all OP wanted to know was what can you buy a 3 year old for $5 and nothing more, then that is what her question would be without the extra details.
Secondly, I believe OP provided the additional details for context, not because she was asking if it was a reasonable request by the birthday child’s parents.
I certainly wouldn’t put this on a birthday invitation, but at the same time I will not judge the other parents for doing so. If I was in OPs position and was offended I would simply decline the invitation.
I am entitled to my opinion and I believe in having empathy for people. So yes, I stand by my initial statement, live and let live.
All I said was that I am not judging the parents because I don’t believe in judging other people and I definitely don’t believe in tearing other people down.
I don’t know why the parents are behaving in such a way, I just don’t think it’s my place to criticize or judge them.
You can get hot wheels cars for $2 if you really feel the need to buy anything. How very rude to ask to buy a present for the birthday girl’s brother as well
What the actual f**k. Lol I’d be laughing in the mother’s face 😆
Wow I think it's a little rude asking guests to buy a 2nd gift for a sibling. $5 or 50c it doesn't matter. That's just bloody rude. Ive had many kids birthday parties and have never once asked anyone to do anything for my other children. That's my Job
Why is everyone commenting that it’s rude etc.??
While I agree it is rude, that is beside the point, the lady is asking for gift ideas for $5!
How utterly ridiculous of the birthday girl’s parents to think this is acceptable 😱 I foresee very little attendees and much more gossiping 😆
Go to Kmart and buy him a load of stuff Nik nax.
Is it possible that the invite suggests presents for the brother and not the birthday girl?
Poor kids going to grow up in a bubble, he will have to learn eventually that sometimes it’s not his turn for things
