10 Birthday Presents For $15 Or Under

soft dog ikea

This soft buddy is only $7.99

Raise you hand if you’ve been to a birthday party every weekend for the last month!

I swear, I think there are more babies born in the spring than any other time. There have been 7 babies born in the last 2 weeks just among my Facebook friends! It’s nuts!

While these birthday parties are lots-o-fun, the gifts can add up. Shnook’s preschool class has 25 kids, and every kid is invited to every party. That’s a lot of presents.  So while you’re traipsing around from party to party, you might be at a loss for 3 year-old gift ideas that won’t break the bank.

Once a kid turns 3, the world of toys opens up. There are many more cool toys that are labeled “3+” because there are fewer concerns about choking hazards. Of course, if you know a kid still puts stuff in his/her mouth, I’d be mindful of that when buying a gift.

Regardless, here are 10 fun and interesting presents for under $15…
