I typically buy little gifts in the big craft stores, Dollar stores, Target dollar section, big home improvement stores, closeout stores, and Walmart. For example: Halloween gifts, all our grands, my brothers kiddies (additional grands), my niece/nephews kids - received mitten/boot warmers for snowy weather, funny socks, and long underwear - from cheap sources listed above.

Folding green in a card is always great.  eta: sunnies, they all love sunnies. So do I - sunnies for all occasions!

I found this new type of birthday card that looks very interesting.. 

The coolest thing about it is that it's a 4D interactive card and from what I can see on the video, there was a game included in it. 

Amaze.Cards

Has anyone seen or sent one of these?

My daughters love getting regular cards as long as the come by snail mail. It’s the fun of getting mail. The littlest prefers the cards that sing a song or make noise. She will carry it around for days. The oldest enjoys reading what the giver writes, so if you send a card please do more than sign your name. 

If you want to do more than a card, you can send a “love box.” Take a small cardboard box you can mail. Include a handwritten letter, a dollar store toy, a few homemade cookies, fudge, candy, etc. no need to spend a fortune. My daughter suggested she would love one that had a few bags of tea, a dollar store or cheap but pretty tea cup and saucer and a few tea cookies.

@RoseRed135 it's actually not expensive :), and it looks similar to a standard card

And @darkprincess Thank  you for all the suggestions I really appreciate it, they're nice, and yes you're correct, the giver should do more than just signing names, it should be very extraordinary
