We went to a break up party last night for scouts and every child got a gift from Santa – we expected a bag of lollies or such so were very impressed with the actual gifts.
It was only small and probably cost no more than a bag of lollies (less if you count the time it would take for someone to make said bags of lollies!) but I think it’s a much nicer gift. It will last and didn’t hype the kids up at the end of an exciting night as sugar would have – and no one had to worry about allergies either.
So if you’re after a token gift, keep animal finger puppets in mind – they work a treat! Especially when Santa hands them out 🙂
