- The Fidget Bucket
Fidget toys are all the rage these days. It doesn’t matter if the event is for stressed-out adults or distracted children because, in the end, a party favor that has various fidget toys is bound to perk everyone up. We’re talking pop-its, slime, fidget spinners, infinity cubes, and countless other items you can choose from.
- The DIY Make & Take Bag
This is a perfect activity, plus a gift bag bundled as one. Suppose you’re thinking of incorporating games and activities in your party, such as coloring a t-shirt, making keychains, decorating a cookie, etc. In that case, the party favor can include the finished item as a reward gift.
- Sophisticated Succulents
Young adults and teenagers are obsessed with succulents, and the trend is not dying down anytime soon. With how easy and low maintenance they are, succulents make the best, most elegant party favors for a grown-up audience. And who knows? Your guests just might name their new cacti after you!
- The Mini Essential Kit
Lip balms, hand lotions, perfume samples, hand sanitizers, and a small tub of mints make the best party favor. It’s like an entire essential kit squished into a miniature form. With colorful packaging and beautiful ribbons, your guests will love this practical version of the age-old tradition.
- The Artistic Touch
Adding an artistic touch to your goody bag will do the trick if you’re looking to sweep your guests off their feet, especially the adults who act like they’ve seen it all. Give your guests framed paintings, candid polaroids, or handwritten poems to make sure they remember it for years to come.
- Gift Card Galore
Not everyone is cut out for fancy schmancy crafts. And if your guests are the same, put your money towards something you know they will enjoy. Invest in about a dozen gift cards and have a lucky draw, where each guest gets to pick out their fated gift card.
- The Seasonal Sack
One way to stay true to yourself while embracing a unique theme is by centering your goody bags around the season. For summers, add themed sunglasses, flip-flops, and beach towels. On the other hand, for spring, you can go for colorful sidewalk chalk, flower seeds, and bubble wands.
- Charms & Bracelets
Children love arts and crafts, and a party favor with a bracelet-making kit is bound to blow their little minds. It won’t just boost their attention span but also teach them responsibility and the power of friendship. After all, making bracelets is a core part of one’s childhood.
