A few months ago, my observant sister-in-law noticed a new store called Five Below being put in close to our house. She asked what it was, I had no idea. I peeked through the windows, but at the time – all I could see was construction workers doing their thing. Life went on and as fate would have it, Five Below emailed and asked it they could send me a package and introduce me to their store. Sure. Seeing I had no real idea what this place was, and was curious – send it on.
Fast forward, the package arrived and let’s just say I had giddy kids jumping up and down. Do these children not get that this is MOMMY’S STUFF? Okay, fine – take it – you take everything else.

Pre-Teen and Teen Birthday Gifts
I don’t know about you, but for our 10 year old daughter’s friends, we have the hardest time finding a reasonably priced birthday gift to bring to birthday parties. I can see the Five Below store being our new go-to – and so much cheaper than the malls store like Justice and Claires. (Plus, they have boy birthday gift items as well!)
