Birthday gifts - does it have to be all or nothing?

Have you ever thought about all those parents out there who are really struggling to buy that nice gift for your kids birthday party? Read the thoughts from a mum who finds it hard to keep up with the social pressure of bringing gifts to all birthday parties. Today the social norm is still very much that if you are invited to a birhtday party you show up with a gift. But does it have to be like that?

At MySharety we think there are different ways of doing it. It's becoming more common to have "no gifts birthday parties". But maybe it doesn't have to be one way or the other. What if the birthday kid could get one nice birthday gift and at the same time contribute to a charity? 

The positive aspects with the "one for you, one for charity" approach are many. You are teaching your children at an early age to be more grateful as well as thinking about those less fortunate around the world that can really use our support. The parents will love you for removing the stress of having to find that nice gift. And not least, the nature will also thank you for using the resourses more thoughtful.
