At your child’s birthday party, you should consider the purchase of party favors. Like other parties, the guests that come to visit would like to take something home with them. No matter if you plan to purchase the party favors for both adults and children or just for the kids, giving your guests a little something to take home is important. It is a thank you. It’s a sign of appreciation. And, it is just good manners.
What About The Cost?
If you are having a birthday party for your child, you should consider several things. First, are the party favors for your child’s friends or will they go to the adults that attend? If they are for the adults, consider using a small statue, a picture frame with your child’s picture in it. Or, consider a candle with a cute theme. Giving a gift to your adult party goers should be done. You can give them something that is inexpensive, especially when you purchase them in bulk form. If you want to spend more, go ahead.
On the other hand, if you are giving a party favor to your child’s friends, then you have to go with all fun things. A little goody bag is ideal filled with kid safe things. Don’t go over board on the candy but many party outlets will provide very small toys, cute games and lots of fun stuff that you can include. The kids will enjoy getting a gift from your child too.
If you are having a small get together with your close family you may not need a party favor. If you are throwing a memorable party, then consider one. This would be for their first birthday or possibly their fifth. If you are giving a large party where there will be many people coming, then a party favor no matter what the age is essential, at least for proper manners.
