Tips on Choosing Table Party Favours
Once you have decided to throw a party it is important to spend sometime in planning what party return gifts you are going to give to your guests. There are some important tips to keep in mind when deciding party favours. Read on to know more.
Choose Favours That Have Cultural Significance
When choosing table party favours for social and religious gatherings like weddings, engagements, etc. it is important that you consider gifts which have a deep cultural significance in line with your guests’ beliefs, customs and traditions. Indians are increasingly becoming more conscious about their identity and if you choose the return gifts that match the value system of your guests, it will be a great success. In India, sweets, precious gems and metals have deep cultural significance as an offering. Also, small metal or clay idols of gods, goddesses and deities are kept inside most homes for receiving blessings, good health and prosperity for the people living in the home and also to keep evil spirits and negative energy away. Gifts that carry a cultural heritage touch the feelings of your guests easily. You can also choose symbolic gifts such as a traditional vermillion box, jewellery box, vanity case, etc. which are items of great utility and are gifts of adornment greatly valued by Indian women.
Consider Your Budget
This is another important factor to keep in mind while deciding table party favours. You are already incurring significant costs related to organising the function, catering, decoration, etc. and you cannot stretch your budget even further and make it completely unmanageable by choosing return gifts which you can simply not afford. When estimating the expenditure of a party or function you need to keep a budget for your return gifts which you are comfortable with. You will definitely find a worthwhile party favour within that budget which will not only make your guests happy but will also play a role in keeping fond memories of the party alive for a long time to come.
Choose Practical and High-Utility Gifts
Table party favours are a great way to enable your guests to keep you in their thoughts long after the party is over and continue to send their good wishes and blessings to you every time they see the return gift. If you choose a gift which has low utility then it will end up unused in a wardrobe or even worse, get repacked as a gift to be disposed off in the next party. Practical and high utility gifts are something which your guests will use frequently and they will love you for it. If you devote a little time to do your research and choose practical gifts then the objective of giving away meaningful gifts can be easily achieved.
