this weekend we had a birthday party to go to. naturally, i had not purchased a gift ahead of time and we found ourselves in office depot realizing that was the only place we were going to be before the party. but, what do you get a 5-year old at office depot?!
a kindergarten readiness bag, of course! notebook, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpener, scissors, and some colored pencils.
since i messed up and the party was on sunday and not saturday like i thought, i even had time to make a personalized tote.
all in all, i think that it worked out alright. maybe office depot will remain our go-to birthday store- we'll see.
