What are the Essential Do's and Don'ts of Party Favors?

Start with Making a List of Everything and Anything You Need

When we plan to arrange a party or any other event, the first thing that we must do is to make a list! This list should include all the items that you will need for the event and specifically mention those, which you need to buy. It will be convenient for you to add up their individual costs and estimate the budget. This way you already know what to get from the market and how much of each item do you need.

When selecting the party favours, follow the same process. Make a list of the items you want to give as return gifts, whether they need packaging or do you want a small note added to each one of them? Look out for the market price of the gifts and estimate a budget. It will amount to big savings if you compare the products from different retail websites beforehand.

Always Plan According to Your Budget


Party planning and arrangement can quickly go overboard without you even noticing it. When you go to the market, and start buying the party essentials you can very easily order two or three packages of the same things, thinking that you might need them or nothing should be scarce! If you have 20 favour gifts to give, you’ll probably order 25 packing papers just to stay safe!

But at the end of the day, you’ll see how you’ve just hoarded things like decorative items, disposable plates and cutlery, which will far from useful till the next year’s party. Hence being strict on the list that you make and the budget that you estimate becomes essential. Stick to the budget and even cut down on unnecessary items.

Do Not Ignore the Thought Behind the Return Gifts

Gifts and even return gifts become special only when there is a thought behind them. If your gift is just another random show piece with no actual use for the recipient, be assured that neither will they remember you for how great your present was nor will they really keep it. It will soon circulate in the rounds of gifting just like the ‘soan papdi box’ does during Indian festivals! Therefore, to make the gift special, add some thoughts behind it.

For a toddler’s party favor gifts, consider buying presents that will be of some or the other use to the baby. There is a plethora of options available in the market, for gifts which are both affordable and useful for the kids. For example, buying a pencil grip maker is an amazing idea if your recipients are in the age group of 2-6 years old. It is both useful and also retails for a reasonable price in the range of Rs. 150-300 on Amazon, Flipkart and other e-commerce websites.
