If you bring more than one kid to a birthday party, how many gifts do you take with you?
When you bring an extra sibling to a party who may or may not have been invited, do you also bring an extra gift? Here are momlogic Moms' take on the issue:
|I feel it depends on the party. If you're having a little backyard shindig with pin-the-tail on the donkey and cake and ice cream, then bringing gift-less siblings along is no big deal. But if you're hosting a party at Build-a-Bear or Color-Me-Mine or the local ice skating rink, where more kids means more money being spent by the host, then hell yeah, you better bring an extra gift!
|I've never done it. Actually, I've never even thought about it. Does that make me a bad Mom?
|Having two boys close in age, they're often both invited to a party--I only bring the sibling if invited. I tend to spend a few extra bucks if it's someone who would come to both my kids' parties. It's only fair since they're buying two gifts.
|"I do feel that you either bring one big gift or one gift per kid invited. I guess it's an etiquette thing that is ingrained in my head."|
