Birthday Parties are most loved and special occasion for kids and parents alike. Lot of planning, scheduling and handling goes into organizing even a small birthday bash for your child. Children wait whole year to celebrate their birthday in style. From venue to food, dress to theme we keep close watch on each and every aspect of Kid’s Birthday Party. However, there is one area which we have a habit of taking for granted – Return Gifts.

Children love gifts, we adults love them too 😉 well, let’s put it this way – Who doesn’t love gifts? We all do, isn’t it! But, when it comes to return gifts we habitually stick to same cliché choices. Return Gifts are the most ‘important’ part of organizing a Birthday Party, and should be taken seriously. A good and thoughtful Return Gift, imprints a happy memory for children. Also, the return gifts should be planned as per age and utility aspect. There was a time, when I had 6 – 7 tiffin box & water bottle sets received as return gifts. Mostly had to give away or to stack and utilize for later days.

Planning a Birthday Party

Before you plan a birthday party the first thing goes into consideration is – Budget. Once the budget is decided, next comes the theme, venue, food and return gifts. It takes a lot to throw a Birthday Bash, hence you can also opt for Event Organizers. They come up with different kind of packages – depending on your budget and plan. Starting from caps to balloons, cake to dresses, special attractions to food menu. With this post, my attempt is to help you all birthday planners with return gifting ideas.

Birthday Return Gift Ideas –

Number Finger Puppets – aged for 4+ kids, this is the best sought after return gift and very useful for kids aged between 4 – 5 years of age. As by this time, children learn basic addition, subtraction and this numbered finger puppet game will make it fun to apply knowledge.

Stationary Sets – nothing appeals kids more then a brand new shiny stationary set. Make sure to use right kind of materials and products. Environment friendly and utility essential.

Alphabet or Number Tracing – I highly advocate ‘wooden toys’ for kids aged between 2-4 years of age. It helps children learn about the sensory impressions of alphabets. Learning 26 alphabets becomes so easy when you have Skola Alphabet Tracing Toy. Also available in upper case or lower-case alphabets.


Colour Learning Toys – When my daughter was 3, she got this toy as return gift from one of her friend’s birthday. It made colour matching and learning so much fun for us. We matched the shapes and colours just by fitting the right pieces on place. Again, a Wooden Toy, to help child learn gripping and fine motor skills.

Puzzle Games – We all love challenges and popularity of Puzzle games is proof to that love. However, the key is picking the ‘RIGHT’ kind of puzzles based on age and learning criterion on children. Easy wooden block puzzles of Shapes & Sizes are perfect for kids aged 2+. For 3+ kids – puzzles which challenge their mind, like matching the opposites, or Jigsaw puzzles, sequencing are perfect gifts.

Before selecting the Return Gifts, remember that this is the real take from your birthday party. Hence, must have a long-lasting effect. A thoughtful and useful gift is always appreciated.
