Should Party Bags be given for a 1st Birthday Party?

The answer is YES!
Your child's 1stBirthday is a very special time, whether you decide to have a party for close family only or to invite lots of friends, it's always nice to give your guests a small gift as a token of your affection. If you are inviting friends who have children, then make sure you give them a gift that's relevant to their ages. It's more likely that you will end up with children of various ages, from babies to ten year olds even. Of course you might only invite your babies little friends of the same age, but be prepared for any older siblings too.
Great gifts for babies and toddles are bath toys, soft toys, chunky crayons, story books, teething toys, plastic beakers, puzzles etc. Just make sure they are suitable for that age group. You can make up little gift bags by using themed plastic loot bags, cello bags, gift cups or even little baskets. Another way to give out the gift is to do a pass the parcel box where each gift is wrapped up. Might need a bit of help from parents to sit round in a circle with their little ones, but this is a fun activity that can be played to music too.
Gifts for older children could be small pocket money toys, books, sweets, crafty gifts, stationery and so on.
If you are just having close relatives and friends at your child's first birthday party, then perhaps give them a small momento gift relating to your child. Things like a photo frame with your child's photo, a keyring, book mark, fridge magnet or a personalised photo mug.
I'm sure grand parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends will appreciate this gift as a keepsake of the special day. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on these gifts, then you could do something simple like send them a 'thank you' card with a photo of your child on that special day.
Both children and adults alike love edible gifts. You could make some cupcakes with an edible photo of your child on, or make cookies or cake pops. Edible party favors always goes down a treat regardless of how old you are!
All gifts will be greatly appreciated and at the end of the day, it's to show how grateful you are that your guests have helped you celebrate such a special event in you and your child's life.
