My daughters birthday is right after Thanksgiving(US) on December 2 and with it being so close anyone have ideas or advice on how they work around it?

My daughter's birthday is Nov 30th and I get her gifts during black friday and have her party the first week of Dec and it's been workin out so far she will be 9yrs old this year. This year is a twist to the party because my son's birthday is Sept 30th so I'm doin both on Nov 30th at a park with a few $6 pizza's and maybe a game or two. Cheep and easy I must say. Good luck

my children's birthday's are nov.2, dec.3, dec.4, dec.10, dec.13 and thats just 5 of them the other 2 are around easter and mpther's day! i just could not get away from but what i do is tell them they have a $10 limit for birthdays. it works out really well. we also dont give birthday parties we have family parties being im a 30 year old big kid myself. if you dont have a big family the family party maynot wor for you, but the $10 limit may

My nephew will be 3 on the 1st of December. We are going to have the toddlers paint ornaments and let them take them home

My birthday is Nov. 23. Usually when I was little if I wanted a party with friends it had to be celebrated a week or two early. But other than that I think my birthday is neat...especially the years it falls on Thanksgiving day. Then we have cake, ice cream, & the whole thankgiving feast!! :)

My boyfriend's mother and Her two daughters (12 and 9) have their birthdays all on the week of Thanksgiving. We have just made Thanksgiving kinda like a Christmas with all the presents. I think his mom usually has a birthday party the weekend before Thanksgiving since it is far enough away from Thanksgiving that her daughter's friends can participate. Since your daughter's birthday is Dec. 2nd, you could always celebrate by cooking her favorite meal for dinner and doing something with just the immediate family then celebrate it with her friends on the weekend after her birthday.

My Nigel's is Nov 22 so it's the week of Thanksgiving.Every 7 yrs it's Thanksgiving day.It's been hard to have a party with classmates.I would have it the weekend before his birthday.We often had bday cake for dessert celebrated after the meal.Family and freinds were already there.My late dh was the 27th so it was just combined.We always got him a seperate cake He chose the character on.My 07 baby Mya is 2 weeks before Nigel's Nov 7th .So now I'm back to 2 close birthdays in Nov.:)

Just always make it special despite the holiday rush.
