Last time my Real Deal was about Getting Organized, this time I’m offering a few tips to keep the kids organized while they are on the Bar Mitzvah circuit.
I cannot count how many times my son would come home from a Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration minus his navy blazer, which of course was indistinguishable from the fifty others at the party. Then I would inevitably receive the news that he had also somehow misplaced the gift that I sent him with. Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties can truly be a whirlwind of activity with the lights and non-stop music, so it is not really reasonable to expect our thirteen year olds to keep it all together.
Here are two Real Deal tips so they can enjoy with minimal losses:
1. Send a gift in with your response card if you are giving a check. If you prefer to send a nice card, you can enclose the check and response card into the card envelope. This eliminates the chance of your child forgetting to hand in their gift!
2. Just like you might do if they go away to sleepaway camp, place name tags on removable articles of clothing like sweaters, jackets, ties and blazers. Mabel’s Labels have some easy to use labels that will come in handy all year long.
Hopefully this will help reduce the stress for everyone!
