My child’s birthday was near and I was thinking about the returns gifts. I couldn’t understand what should I give in return to my son’s friends. I realised that choosing an appropriate return gift for my son’s birthday party was a tough job. If you don’t want to spend a fortune, still want to buy thoughtful and useful gifts for your child’s friends, then here are some suggestions.
1. Utility Gifts
- Lunch Boxes – A lunch box can make for a wonderful return gift and surely your child’s friends would love receiving it as a gift. You can also add a cookie or a cake pop to it. They will be extremely happy.
- Pencil Boxes – Kids love writing with new pens and pencils. If you give them pencil boxes as return gifts with all the necessary stationery like a pencil, pen, eraser, sharpener, and ruler. They will be more than happy on receiving such a thoughtful gift.
- Piggy Banks – When I was a child I used to love collecting coins in my piggy bank. So, I thought piggy banks would make for perfect return gifts.
No, you don’t need to buy branded watches for each and every child because kids get bored of wearing the same thing. You can buy inexpensive colourful watches for kids. On receiving the gifts, they will have a big smile on their faces.
It’s always a good idea to inculcate reading habits in children. So how about giving books as return gifts? Give a book to each child who attends your child’s birthday party. You never know, it might encourage them to read books. As a child, I enjoyed reading books of Enid Blyton, Ruskin bond, Dr. Seuss, etc. You can choose the books by these authors or look on the internet to explore your options.
This is something I did for my son’s first birthday. It wasn’t a grand affair and I had invited only close family members. I had made sure that each family member has a picture with my son. I got those pictures framed and wrapped them. It was a delight to see their happy faces on opening their gift. It’s something that will remain with them for the longest time. You can do that for your child’s birthday party too. Instead of taking individual pictures, click a group picture of your child and his friends. Later you can get copies created of the same and gift them to all the children.
An attractive box of chocolates is loved by all – be it kids or adults. So buy small boxes of chocolates and give them as return gifts to your child’s friends.I hope you like these options and would consider one of the above for your child’s birthday.
