    I normally spend around $10 -$15. Lego or a vehicle of some description like hotwheels or a truck or a motorbike.

    Most of the ideas have already been suggested that I can think of. Lego is our usual go-to for boys' birthdays. It depends on a few things as to how much you spend, ie. your income and what you can afford, how close she is to the boy - whether just a classmate or a closer friend. The other two points are only personal things I take into consideration and have no bearing on what you should do, but I also consider how many of my children they have invited and what sort of party it is - for example if they have invited 2 of my children to somewhere that costs them money like a play centre, ten-pin, etc I tend to spend a little more as I know they are spending extra covering the costs of these activities.
