I have a stockpile of materials to make festive kits to send my friends on their birthdays: garland, banners, paper crowns, confetti, and more. I have them all in a box that includes packing envelopes so they're easy to assemble and ship. It's a way to celebrate with them even though I can't be there to celebrate with them!

I buy almost all of my birthday kit supplies at my little local dollar store, but tragically, they do not have a website. Check the one nearest you for super-cheap festive supplies— and don't forget the padded envelopes. The Spritz line at Target is also a great source for items in today's fashion colors. Just be sure everything lays nice and flat for safe, easy shipping!
