If you have a child of a certain age, ie. primary school age, you will no doubt have experienced the flood of birthday party invitations that often goes with the territory. All very lovely – a fun afternoon for your child, but then there’s the obligatory presents, cards and of course wrapping paper! It all mounts up. Now, I know that re-gifting is a popular habit for many, know people who bulk buy presents and others who have a very stringent ‘present purchasing policy’ but the real killer can be the £2 or £3 on a card which frankly, the child may or may not even look at.
Now, I have heard tell of box sets of children’s cards in supermarkets, but try as I might, have never found any. So I was more than delighted to find this beauteous collection in The Entertainer for just £1 for 10 cards. That’s 10p each! Unbelievable. Now you can’t say fairer than that! And they are all really lovely designs! No duff ones like your bumper box of Xmas cards. No glittery robins, and snowy steeples.
