How to Decide on What Birthday Party Favors to Have

Aug 1, 2008
Party favors are tokens of appreciations from the host to the guests. A party favor need not be expensive. It should be good if it can arouse delighted feelings when you give it both kids and grownups. Birthday party favors should also be economically friendly for the hosts. It's useless to give out something expensive but pointless.

These are some of ideas for deciding on birthday party favors for you to consider.

1. What is your party's theme?

2. The age of the recipients, on average.

3. What is your budget for the party?

Since you are putting some effort into getting birthday party favors for your child's birthday, it is quite likely that this party is a themed one. Then of course, the favors should complement the theme of the party. For example, you may get little toys that can match the character(s) of the theme. Maybe a little purse with the face of Barbie can be a favor for the Barbie themed birthday party. Sometimes, you can make your own favor, like a picture of the character that you have printed out with your computer to put into the picture frame that you bought.

Then again, there are some party favors that can pretty much go with any theme, especially if the children are very young ones. Candies make popular birthday party favors for very young children. These can be as cheap as you can appropriately go, or be a little more exotic such as the classic candy canes. Your party favors may include little games for the children to play with. As you can see, party favors can be decorative, serve as play-things or be edible. But do select ones that are appropriate for the guests; they should be reasonable for you, but exciting enough for the children.

If you don't have that many guests on your invitation list, it's a good idea to give them something a little better. With a small number of people, it wouldn't hurt your pocket to give them something a little pricier.

Other ideas for giveaways are candles that can come in a variety of flavors. They can be scented or not, in wax or gel form, etc. There are also unusual shapes of candles, though this depends on the theme of your choice. Children may find tiny and colorful rubbers cute. Stickers too, may be given away, as well as fancy magnets. There are a lot of interesting knick knacks if you keep your eyes and imagination open.

If you are game for more fun, how about party theme confetti? Surely the children will like novelties like this. Besides, confetti need not be expensive. In fact, you can make your own party theme confetti. Consider printing out the character(s) of your theme or something related to the theme and then cutting them into tiny pieces. If this sounds like some work for you, why not share the fun and get the children to help out? Even the baby can do this, by tearing the papers into tiny bits, if he could not handle the scissors.

The confetti can also be stuffed into balloons and the kids can get lots of enjoyment form popping up the balloons later. Just imagine their excitement when the balloons burst and all the confetti showering them. If that's not enough, they have their great party favors to bring home to remind them of the great fun they just had at your party. You should use your creativity and imagination in how to manipulate the confetti to make your party a splendorous event.

To have your guests enjoy your party is not that hard. You can use your creativity in assisting and making sure that they have the most fun at your party. Shower them with fantastic gifts and confetti, you will surely be the best host around.
