Birthday Goodie Bag Idea!
Just sharing an alternative for birthday goodie bags for parents who do not want to give out food items to your LO's friends! Bought the ZooMoov passes during their promotion, it was $38 for 14 passes so I bought 28 passes and got 2 free from their lucky spin - total of 30 passes for $76. Got 30 lanyard cardholders from Shopee (China Marketplace) for $22.14, so each set only costs $3.27 to prepare :) I got them for my LO's birthday goodie bags because: 1) I didn't like the idea of giving sweet treats to kids. 2) I wanted something practical that the kids/parents would use, yet unisex and not something they might already have at home. 3) I tried to reduce the amount of waste produced, and though they come in plastic and paper backing (didn't know this before I ordered), it's still better than things like balloons or things the kids will never use I guess? 4) The kids should have an ez-link from around 2-3 years old (as long as above 90cm tall), so they'll need a cardholder to learn how to take care of their own card and things like public transport too. 5) Crayons, colour pencils and stationery may be good IF your LO has a birthday early in the year - my LO is born in September (I know, I prepared real early) so we'd have so many of those by then. 6) ZooMoov passes are usually quite expensive (about $5/5 mins ride) so it's a good experience gift that the kids can have with their parents, who may not spend on such experiences for their kids. 7) They have no expiry or name tagged to it, giving parents the flexibility to give them away/keep them for future use. Just putting an alternative suggestion out there if anyone is frustrated over preparing gifts!
