If you have ever been to a terrible party, there may be one shining moment from that party, the birthday favor bags. It seems that birthday favor bags are becoming commonplace at every party you go to, even at parties for toddlers.
Birthday favor bags at children’s parties are great because kids love to come home and tell their parents all about the fun party they went to and to show them all of the cool gifts they received. Try to find a way to incorporate the birthday favor bag into the overall theme of the party. Have the kids design their own party bag by using finger paints along with a paper sac. Cellophane is another perfect gift bag as kids can decorate them with stickers along with markers and other fun decorations. Not only is this a great way to create unique gift bags, it also gives you an activity to fill in some of the spare time with the kids so they don’t get bored.
The one thing you need to know about birthday favor bags is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on them. You don’t need to make them 10 times better than the gift bags your kids have come home with in the past instead just opt to make them memorable and fit the theme of the party.
If you are buying the party favors for a kid’s birthday, make sure everything is the same. Children will get jealous of one another if their friend got the blue yo-yo and they got the yellow one. It’s in your best interest to find some great gifts at a Dollar Store so you don’t waste a ton of money. While the party favors are a great idea at first, it is common for them to end up in the dumpster eventually. Take your son or daughter with you when you head out to purchase the party favors to make sure everyone goes home with the same gift, plus it’s nice to involve your child in some of the planning of their own birthday party.
The birthday favor bag itself can range in a variety of different things from a paper sack to a plastic container. Look around to find affordable gift bags that fit your budget. If you want the gift bag to be used again in the future, search around for some that are a little more durable compared to the paper ones. Even placing all the items in a box and then wrapping the box up with colorful paper is a great gift bag to offer and it makes your guests feel like they won a prize as they are walking out of the party.
For adult parties, create a centerpiece for a table in your home and use the party favor to decorate the centerpiece. Remind your guests to grab a party favor on their way out the door. It can get a little confusing to write names on all the bags for adults so just leave them blank and let them grab one if they want it. Decorate the table with fun things like streamers, balloons, and paper cut outs.
How about if you are hosting a party for your toddler? The birthday favor bags are going to target several age groups as you may throw a party with your playgroup so you want to give a little gift for the child and also the parent. For toddlers, opt for some fun party favors that promote education like puzzles and building blocks. Balls are always popular among toddlers as well.
