Can I donate dishes?
If rely on the knowledge and superstitions of our ancestors, then only forks and spoons could not be brought in honor of the celebration, and the latter re considered an excellent present for a long time, especially if it was not just a spoon, but painted or made of precious metal. But over time, the spoon was also attributed to unwanted souvenirs, because they believed that if it was made with bad thoughts, then there would be a problem with food in the house. A spoon can be given only for the “first tooth” of a child, in other cases it is better to refrain from such a surprise.
As for forks, they, like knives, needles and scissors, are associated with evil spirits, it is believed that it lives on sharp objects. Therefore, forks will bring quarrels to the family.
If such items re handed to you, then do not rush to sar at the donor or throw them in the trash, just pay off the present by giving some penny, so it is believed that you will pay off the evil spirits.

How to give?
When you have decided on a gift, bought it or made it yourself, you need to figure out how to present it. It must be remembered that “they are met by clothes.” You can take the present to a place where they specialize in gift wrapping or do it yourself using wrapping paper, foil, or just a beautiful cardboard bag.
If you want to present effectively, you can come up with various quests to unpack the prize.
In addition to the foil gift wrapping, on which the photo of the hero of the occasion was glued, you can come up with tasks where you hid the gift, and in order to find it, you need to guess the riddle, complete the task. But it is worth remembering that if the person who accepts the gift is not a fan of such events, then you should think of something else so as not to spoil the holiday and relationships with each other.
If you have a handmade gift, then try not to use banal gift packaging, but, for example, put a tray board in a beautiful bag and tie helium balloons to it. When choosing balls, you should take into account the identity you are going for and the interests of a particular person. If you decide to give an apron, then an unmarried girl will have a creative birthday present if she removes it herself from the donor.
Souvenirs for the kitchen can be arranged into a composition, for example, swans can be formed from kitchen tols and packed in a box, showing all your imagination. People who know how to work with origami can make more complex shapes. Engage in creativity for your own pleasure, and then your homemade souvenir will be the most original and interesting.
If the hero of the occasion is superstitious, then he should not be presented with sharp objects — this can ruin the holiday. When choosing dishes, remember that you need to check it for integrity. If your gift is handmade, try to make it look presentable. And remember that the pattern (if any), as ll as gift wrapping, should match the celebration.
