Have you heard about the “fiver” birthday trend?

We first heard about this last summer and wondered how it would be received by parents and kids. Well, it seems to be a genius idea…

A new(ish) trend is emerging in the kids’ birthday party realm — “fiver” parties — and I’ve got to say, I’m on board.

Every year, I attend the birthday parties of the kids I used to nanny. They’re getting older now, and I truly think the stuff and toys are just getting bigger and more expensive as time goes on. I have sat there year after year as they rip open their gifts, either exclaiming “I have this already!” or “I don’t want this” or “Yay! I hoped for this,” and it’s of no fault to them that it gets to be just so damn much — it’s their birthday, and they want to open the things they’ve been presented with. And if you’re inviting 15 kids to the party and each of them is coming with a gift, of course things are bound to get a little out of hand — not only that, but each gift opened tends to get less and less special.
