Awesome Return Gift Ideas For Your Baby’s 1st Birthday Party
There are complaints out there about how “useless” most of the return gifts are. This is because there will be anywhere between 10 to 30 kids in a birthday party and if you allocate even Rs.500 per return gift, the overall cost can go up by Rs.15000. So most parents stick to something that can be done within a lower denomination, such as Rs.100. And the toys you get for this amount often render useless or broken within days (if not hours). Anyway, haters will be haters. So, sit back and read about 10 awesome return gift ideas we love!
