No matter what kind of celebration you intend to have, if you invite guests, home made party favors are a great way to thank each of them for coming to celebrate with you. There are many different things that can be given as small tokens of your appreciation. It’s easy to find inexpensive trinkets at the store, but creating your own can make the thought more special.
Because everyone has to eat, food tends to be a popular choice. Aside from cooking, or presenting your guests with a meal, you could also bake each of them a small loaf of bread to take home. When the bread is done baking, to add a personal touch, you can use a cookie cutter to imprint the image of something special. The same thing can be done to just about any kind of food, if food is what you decide to give.
Some people do not like the idea of giving perishable items as gifts. After all, not everyone has the same taste for food. The kind of favor you provide depends on what kind of party you’re having, but if you would like to give your guests something they can actually use, there are inexpensive ideas for this, as well.
For young kids, no matter what the theme, allowing them to create their own play-dough not only keeps them entertained, the dough can be sent home with them. Recipes for play-dough can easily be found online. Another idea is to make homemade coloring books. These can be easily made with some cardboard, fabric, paper, glue, and don’t forget your imagination.
For parties with more of an adult theme, you could purchase some inexpensive tote bags and decorate them as you wish. Men and women, both, could benefit from the light of candles. There are ways to make homemade candles and personalize them for guests of both sexes. Little homemade soap bars can also be an excellent idea for everyone.
Whether the party is for kids or adults, you may also like the idea of sending everyone home with a special photo put in a picture frame. Inexpensive picture frames are relatively simple to find; what you put in them is up to you. If you wish, there are even ways to put pictures of your choosing on the wrappers of candy bars! These home made party favors can either be purchased from online sources, or you can find a program to make them on your computer.
