Which will you give during yr friend's child 1st birthday ?
Angbao or pressie ?
Hope you guys can comment on both .
- Angbao , how much to give ?
Pls comment on both . Thank you .
- Presents , what to buy ?
Usually bless ang bao.. As more practical i think so.. Have received simialr gifts at bd party before.. The amt depends very much on the relationship between the family and the giver.. But it's really the thoughts that counts ..
ang pao more practical~~
or vouchers .. price range bout $10-50
if pressie then wil be mainly push walker/toys
If it is a close friend, I will ask what she wants me to get for her baby.
If it is not a very close friend, I rather give red packets.
I personally feel that it is quite difficult to get the perfect gift.
So a red packet will come in useful instead. It can be used to pay for the party, it can be used as the child's future savings...
No those very close but neutral one . $20 too little anot ?
i think angbao more practical. I'll usually give $20 but closer friends i'll give $50.
Ya 20 should b ok~
Bascally, I will find that $$ is more practical... Cuz the parents can buy what they want for the kids...
As for pressies, clothes is definately a NO-NO for me as kids outgrow very fast... as for toys, have to depends...
For me, I will normally share with th rest & the amount range from $10-$50, be it vouchers or $$... That's what I normally practise...
But for my closest besties, I will give $50...
i also feel angbao more practical..maybe give 20-30 bucks ...
