Party favours are a lovely way to thank the guests for coming to the party and a great memento for them. Give some sweet treats such as cake or cookies, or something creative they could make at home. It’s very important to consider safety when giving gifts to the tiny ones so don’t give out small items that could be a potential choking hazard.
