what to get for....?

Recommended Posts

Okay ladies, I am struggling at what to get my little kid attendants for their wedding presents. We have the groomsmen and bridesmaids presents but still have two boys (ages 8 & 4) and three girls (ages 5, 4, & 2). I made coloring books for all the kids coming to the wedding as well as got glow sticks (my 4 year old cousin specifically requested a blue glow bracelet, after he got one for 4th of July), but I feel like I need to get something for them for being in the wedding.

 

Thanks for your help!

Normally I would say a gift certificate for a place for kids like Chucky Cheese. But now thinking about it I realize they can't appreciate it. Kids that age need immediate gratification. Okay I am so bad with kids b/c I am not up to par but how about those Webkins dolls for the girls (assuming of course that they are into those) and something that is very "in" with the boys. Sorry Christine but I have no clue what that "it" thing is right now. I will have to do research to find out. But I'm sure someone on this forum will know.

I'd say buy something they like regardless if it's wedding related. Yeah I have no kids either and my nephews are really into lego's..

I would say something non wedding related.

 

for girls:

 

webkins (our daugher is 8 and she and every other kid I know love them)

some cute dress up stuff

polly pockets

my little pony stuff

 

boys:

 

this is harder, but I do know boys that like webkins too, maybe ask there parents if they're into them

 

games

 

legos

 

 

I have a really hard time with the boys!

 

Hope this helps a little at least!

Im planning on making a little backpack goodie bag for both of my ringbearers (they will be 8 and 2.5) Im going to fill it with some markers, colouring books, legos, little toys, etc. Kinda anything to keep them entertained at the wedding. I think anything more than that may not be as exciting to them at this age.

great ideas! I agree that anything that they are interested in would be a great idea!
If you wanted to do something wedding related a bride barbie would be great for the girls

I got the girls necklaces and the boys harmonicas. They were all personalized, the necklaces with their birthstone gem and initial, and the boys harmonicas were engraved.

My attendants are my children who will be 9.   My daughter was easy because I just got her jewelry but was stumped for my son.  After poking around on this site I found a great idea, but possibly not good for the younger boys -- dog tags!  On Etsy I found a site that will personalize them, some even had ring bearer ones with the date.

 

I will just get my son his name.  I may then find my daughter a personalized bracelet so both are similar and can be worn at the wedding.   My fiance doesn't think it matters if they are worn at the wedding, but it's important to me.   My daughter's dress won't allow for a necklace.

 

Phew, nonetheless, I am buying my son a dog tag and I LOVE the idea!!!
