Being a parent of school-age kids means birthday parties. a lot. And birthday parties mean gifts, especially in the South. or leave a tower of boxes.
Most of the time, you, the parent, are stuck with the impossible task of choosing a gift for someone from an entirely different generation that you may never even have met.Do they like board games? And is there any more MONOPOLY: STAR WARS Boba Fett Edition? Is Pokemon still cool? What are Jibbitz? (Answer: Small, colorful charms made specifically for Crocs shoes. No one knew.) You end up spending more money than you need on something you’re not sure the recipient will like. you will use it. And then there’s the next weekend’s party to think about.
I’ve found myself in this situation more times than I want to admit, either in the toy store aisle or scrolling through Amazon… until I finally found the holy grail of birthday gifts. Inexpensive, no batteries required, can be ordered in bulk, regardless of gender or age, to inspire creativity. It’s a blank comic. The paperback contains about 100 blank panels (nice paper material) begging to be filled with superheroes, jibbitz-stealing villains, or whatever a child might dream of. increase.
Buy it: $3.99;
Bought this on a whim for my 7 year old son who likes to draw and tell stories. He loves showing off his work as much as filling out his panels. And I love that it ignites his imagination and helps him improve his writing skills.
Pair a blank comic book with a package of rainbow gel pens or markers, put it in a gift bag, and you’ll have a present ready to go at the next birthday party just around the corner. No more stocking up and frantically pacing your toy aisle.
