starting to think of planning our daughters 2nd birthday party and was wondering: is it common / expected to have gifts for the kids you invite over? Some (not all) of the recent birthday parties we went too, the parents handed out little gift bags to anyone who came... I personally don't like the idea so much (usually the stuff handed out is cheap and nothing anyone wants anyway, also we live in a place with not much shopping options for party favors and we were thinking of having a large party and I'd rather focus on nice food and drinks than pricy but cheap quality trinkets to give away...). I don't want to offend anyone if I'm not handing out a plastic toy to each kid though... What are your thoughts/experience with this? Or alternatively ideas for things to provide if it is a must?
