Birthday party favour ideas for kids under 8

Birthday party favour ideas for kids under 8? I’m planning a party for my 5-year-old daughter. There will be about 18 girls and boys ranging in age from 4-8. What can I give them as party favours? I like to give one useful item rather than a goody bag filled with trinkets. I don’t want to spend more than $4 per favour. In the past I’ve given jigsaw puzzles, jump ropes, balls, Hot Wheels, and Polly Pockets. [more inside]

Help me plan a Brewster's Millions Birthday.

So it's my wife's birthday soon. She's quite picky when it comes to gifts, and likes shopping, so I'm giving her some cash for her birthday. Only thing is, this seems a bit lame/dull/lacking in thought, so I need a way to make it interesting, and, inspired by the 80s movie Brewster's Millions, I'm thinking about attaching some fun conditions/rules governing the spending of said cash. Now I need help coming up with said rules. [more inside]

Help me make my boyfriend's birthday awesome with fiendishly delightful present wrapping and delivery!

It's my boyfriend's birthday soon, and I want to make the present giving AWESOME! Have already purchased presents and booked flights to be with him. Am organising special birthday meals for him, and a couple of activities too, so most of the day is pretty much sorted. But I really really want the present giving/opening experience in particular to be super fun for him. I'm thinking along the lines of a treasure hunt with clues so he has to hunt for the presents... Or wrapping the presents in a giant box and painting it like a cake with sparklers on top! Or multiple layers of wrapping disguising the present...Or, um, something else. But I don't know what exactly. I just want to make it a completely excellent fun surprise for him. [more inside]

Perfect Birthday Gift for 7-Year Old Girl

I need the perfect birthday gift for a seven year old girl. I don't know her well...i.e. what her interests are (so nothing too skewed). But she's clever and draws very well (though it doesn't need to be an arts/crafts item). I'd prefer something that would really make her eyes light up. But I need to be able to find and buy it easily tomorrow morning here in Suburbia (there ARE a couple "hip" toy stores not too far from here, if that helps). Preferably under $60. Thanks!!!!
