How many times have you hosted a party and forgot to say “thank you for coming” to some of the guests? I am sure it has happened to you at least once. Being a good host is tough work, from arranging for food and drinks to mingling with the guests to ensure nobody is feeling left out, the list is endless. It often becomes difficult to make sure you have acknowledged each guest at least once. There is a perfect solution to this, which makes you even more popular with the guests. Personalized party favors.
Yes, it is that simple. All you need to do is make sure you get gifts for everyone and personalize them, put their names on them so they really feel special. With a party favor for everyone, there is less likelihood of you ignoring someone at a party unintentionally because you will be handing them out to each person individually. It’s a perfect way to show your appreciation and also to ensure you interact with each guest.
If you are throwing a theme party, you can choose gifts that will match the theme. For instance, if you are having a house warming party, then you can gift items like scented candles, glassware and pens. You can personalize them by having the guest’s name engraved on them, or even your own to be remembered by.
You can make it more fun and interesting by having special theme parties. How about a James Bond party? You can have a special dress code and you can gift favors like personalized Bond style sunglasses and watches. A miniature Bond car or a toy gun can also be added to make it more fun. For birthday parties, graduation parties or even baby showers, you can gift personalized candy boxes to everyone. For a Valentines Day party, heart shaped candy boxes are ideal party favors.
There are endless possibilities for party favors, whether your party has a theme or not. You can gift personalized photo frames, wallets, pens, purses and even golf balls. Whatever the occasion, everybody will be happy receiving a personalized party favor from you.
When buying party favors you need to keep a few things in mind. You need to know exactly how many people will be coming, so make sure you get an RSVP from everyone you have invited. You should also have a budget in mind, considering all the other expenses you will have for the party. Make sure you buy extra gifts, you never know when you might have a surprise guest who drops in and you cannot very well tell them to leave! It does not matter having a few extras as you can always save them for another occasion.
Party favors always add a little special touch to any party. You will always be remembered for being a wonderful host especially if you personalize the gifts. I once went to my friend’s bridal shower and the bride-to-be gave all her girlfriends two ceramic dolls, and explained that it represented us friends. It was a simple gift but very special.
