Tip 1: Buy Little Gifts for Little Children
For little children, get little presents. Very small children are generally delighted with almost any age-appropriate little toy or interesting item that you give them. If the item is wrapped in pretty paper or has a balloon attached, the children will be even more excited. There's no risk of an awkward moment in which the children report to their friends that they didn't get the really expensive doll or whatever.
