We are celebrating our child’s birthday and would prefer to let our guests know what kind of toys (s)he likes. How do we do this?
Gone are the days when birthdays end with receiving two sets of yoyos and hotwheels. At Lilsta there are two ways in which you can ensure that your friends and family present your little ones with toys they would enjoy.
One way to let your friends and family know what your child will like to play with on their birthday is to create a wishlist and share it with the guests’ email ids. They can access your wishlist and view products that you would like to purchase for your child.
Another method that is common abroad but is yet to gain popularity in India is to create a gift registry for your children’s birthdays. This requires you to create a list of toys that your child will like on Lilsta. The list can then be shared along with the birthday invitation and guests can view what products they can gift. Products that have already been purchased will be marked out ensuring that you don’t end up with any duplicates.
