My DD's BFF from daycare (we have never done playdates outside of daycare...yet...her mom and I have been talking and although we are not "friends" we are friendly) Our DD's were born 5 days apart and her bday party is tomorrow, my DD next week. We are each having "No gift parties" for the girls and asking if friends want to bring something to bring $5 donation to a charity.
Here is my question...now that the day is here for her BFF I feel really guilty about no gifts...BUT...I don't want to get something and have her feel like she has to do the same for my DD's "NO gift party" next week. I was planning on donating more than the $5 but should I get her a gift card too?
Then I am thinking I really don't want gifts for my DD. The only reason we are having the party is just for her to feel special for a day not to get gifts. If it was anyone else in DD's class I wouldn't give a second thought about just the donation and no gifts but I am feeling guilty because the girls are so close.
