I need ideas on what to give 11 year old girls for my DD birthday and end of school year celebration.
I don't want it to be very expensive. I put best wishes only on the invites but some of the kids are insisting on getting her a gift anyway. Not sure how to handle that either.

Hi there. My birthday is right at the end of school too so my Mom always did a combo type party too! I would think 11 is still young enough to enjoy bubbles and a skipping rope or something like that, just simple for the loot bag. As for gifts coming anyway, I think you just have to accept them gracefully. We have done numerous parties with the goal to raise money for a charity and gifts come anyway. We just accept them and thank the people and don't make a big deal about it.
Good luck! Take care, Carleon.

Thank you for your reply you were very helpful.
Hopefully not many will bring gifts but if they do I'll make sure to not make a big deal out of it.
