Planning a birthday party can be a stressful time for anyone, especially if you have a kid in the family. Here are a few ways to manage birthday stress to make this year painless for everyone involved.
Planning ahead is easier said than done. This year, make sure you stick to your plans. Write out your grocery list, send out invites and get those gifts wrapped early! Plan your games well in advance and keep tabs on the stories your kids come home with from other birthday parties. Good ideas can be borrowed! You'll thank yourself come party time.
Buy gifts early
We suggest stocking up on gifts throughout the year. Birthday parties can be expensive and buying gifts that make you think of your loved ones throughout the year can be a great way to make sure you don't break the bank when it comes to party day. Plus, the gifts will be more thoughtful and inspired and you won't have the stress of last-minute shopping.
Take some time to relax. You might end up with a go, go, go attitude but if you spend some time chilling out, you'll have a better day and so will all the little ones.
