I would not respond to anyone about the partys till you know when they all are. If someone asks just say you are not sure yet it is too far out.
As for gifts we have about a 5.00 limit. I look for sales year round and have a tote with gifts. The kids get to shop from the tote when there is a party. It works for us, and the birthday is not about the gift it is about celebrating with the person.
