Works for Me - Sonic Gift Cards

I have a hard time with filling birthday party bags. I admit it, this is an area where I am not "supermom". As a matter of fact, I worry over the party favors more than the rest of the party. First of all, what to put in them? Let's face it most of the items on the party aisle are worse than Happy Meal toys....they break as soon as you get them home or they get lost in the bottom of the toy box. I hate to put candy in the bags as well. Then there is the cost, the total spent per bag can add up quickly.

My boys went to a party this summer and the mother did the smartest thing. She gave each child a gift card to Sonic. You would have thought they received pure gold. The opportunity to go to Sonic and choose whatever they wanted!

With Smoda's birthday so close to Christmas I borrowed the idea from my wise friend. All the guests were as excited as my boys had been when they received theirs. Works for me...gift cards as party favors!

Oh what a great idea! I would love for my child to receive something like that versus the candy or junk in those silly 'goody bags!!'

If you time it right you can often get gc's just for a kiddie cone or something like that at Halloween, Easter, Valentines. This would make it even less expensive!
