    dear karthiga,
    when my child was one year old, we shopped for tiny little gifts like the twisting wheel, tops with ropes, chinese chekers, ludo, color pencils, pencils and rubber of different shapes, a paper cap, some sweet candys, and paper bags, with fringed in gold lace, with a tiny rope to carry, colorful ones. we also brought a big swan very big one which u get in the market, now filled some of the candies and toys and dolls and what ever like marbles, lollipops, all wrapped up and hanging it on to the ceiling next to the fan or any other hook on the ceiling.

    once the party is on its way that is after cutting the cake and a good spread to eat, sandwich, samosas, fruit juices, some sweets like gulab jamun dry and a short tom and jerry film to make them laugh, and then while leaving we poke the belly of the swan from down and all sweets and toys fall down for the kiddos to pick it up, and apart from this they have a cap and a hooter, and small paper bag of gifts to take home... sunkan

    Hi Kartiga,
    Depending upon the age you can gift the kids. If there are small children I mean toddlers you can give them small squeaky toys, and for his playschool friends and other kids of his age group gift sets with a scale, pencil, eraser, sharpner comes. you could get them and present them.

    Have you been to Sundar Stores in Usman Road opposite to GRT? You get lots of gift articles. I generally jump into that store whenever I need to get some return gift or gifts that need to be given for Navarathri.

    Try that place infact they keep getting new new products and once you step in you will get lots of ideas.

    Hope I am useful
    Let me know whether I was right or wrong if you visit that place.

    Hi Karthiga,
    You can give them any toys, snack box, water bottle, lots of assorted toffees. If you think that it can be things that they can use later on then go for colouring books or crayons, pencil boxes, erasers, pencils( fancy ones). Hope this will come within the budget you have in mind. My youger daughter who is in playschool Pre-KG gets such items as return gifts.
    Happy birthday to your lil one. All the best to you.

    hello friends,
    Thanks for all ur suggestions. Sunkan, gifts inside the swan, is a very cute idea. I'll try if I could get it in shops.

    Rajmi, thanks for mentioning the shop. I've planned to go to pondy bazaar for shopping. I've visited sundar stores 3 or 4 times. I'll surely go there this time to find such gifts. Really thanks rajmi....

    regards
    karthiga.

    Hi
    If you are planning to have the party at home, don't forget to plan some easy games, like musical chairs, and prizes for the winners, they don't have to be expensive similar to the return gifts
    also plenty of wet wipes for the inevitable spills
    Have a great party

    According to me you should present a a box full of chocolates because I think small children are fond of toffees and chocolates and it would be the best present as a return gift.
