How to Choose the Perfect Party Favour

Here we give you the tips to make this somewhat alien tradition our own. Our suggestions and tips are for sure to help you make the best of your time and money. This will make your party favour shopping much easier and fun. Stay tuned!


First and foremost, you need to fix a budget. The party or function itself is going to take up a lot from your pocket, and you should definitely keep in mind that the party favours come as an added expenditure. Just as we have discussed earlier, only go for party favours if they are comfortable on your pocket. And stick to the budget. As an added advice, only go in for the purchase of party favours, once all the preparations for your party is done, and a little amount is kept aside for emergencies like a last minute order for more food and drinks or anything along these lines.

Selection and Numbers

Next, come the selection and numbers for gifting party favours. This would seem a bit nasty, a selection for getting gifts? But let’s be real, Indian celebrations are HUGE! And gifting each and every one of them is not quite practical unless you are a multi-millionaire ready to splurge. Thus, in case of big functions, if you feel it's needed to make a list of close ones whom you would like to gift., or else if it is a close-knit affair already, you can get similar gifts for all. But having a number and selection can bring lots of ease to your pocket and make things fuss-free.


Even if you do not give a party return favour it is completely okay, but it is not okay if your gift is of low quality. A low-quality gift can dampen the feel of the entire celebration and make giving party favours redundant. Hence it is necessary to not compromise on the quality of the products, even though it is going to be a bulk purchase. Make sure each product is individually checked before packaging. And if you are purchasing different products for every person, make sure each gift is of high or similar quality, and of nearly equal pricing.

Shop from Trusted Websites

When it comes to purchasing party favours, online shopping shall become your saviour. You are sure to find much more variety for very reasonable prices online, that you may not see when shopping from stores. But it is also necessary to shop from trusted websites, that have been running for a long time or have very good user reviews. This would ensure that you get quality products and immediate customer service in case of damaged products.

Moreover, such sites are sure to have ongoing offers most of the time and seasonal updates of great products. These are some big reasons why online shopping websites are the best choice when it comes to bulk purchases.

Occassion and Personalisation

Before you jump in to buy some random things as gifts for your guests, let us tell you something. It is very important that your gift as per the occasion, and not just any random thing. Gifting for the occasion, not only makes the gift more meaningful but will also serve as a reminder of the beautiful celebration and moments you enjoyed together. Also, it is equally important to personalise your gift. A small handwritten note, or a small card saying ‘with love, you name’ would make so much of difference, than just giving a random thing, gift wrapped.
