Here’s a party favor that kids will surely love. Purchase a few small beach pails at the dollar store and fill them with summer goodies, such as kids’ sunglasses, paper umbrellas, and some colorful candies. Place a short note to say thanks to your grateful guests.
Turn you Christmas in July party favor magical by combining it with some adorable bubbles. Buy pre-packaged bubble kits and create your own custom labels to stick around the bottle. You can even personalize the labels with your guests’ initials or just say ‘Thank You’ in green and red.
Take your crafting skills up a notch and make customized ornaments for your guests to take home and hang on the Christmas tree during the holidays. You can use summer themes so that your guests won’t forget the great time they had at the party. Take inspiration from the beach and create a seaside-themed ornament made of clear glass. Fill it with some sand and tiny seashells and then tie it using a ribbon with the date of the party.
Homemade Photo Booth
Capture exciting moments at the party and turn them into fun party favors for your guests. Set up a homemade photo booth and give your guests some goofy Christmas props, such as Santa hats, Santa beards, candy canes, and other Christmas décor, to wear in the photos. You could even arrange a Christmas-themed backdrop or use a white sheet. Then set up a Polaroid or digital camera on a timer, or ask one of your guests to be the photographer. Have the photos printed at the end of the night and let the guests take then home as mementos. You can also print them off later and send them to guests in the mail.
For a cool spin on the traditional goody bag, pick out a fresh pack of men’s and women’s socks and separate them into pairs. Full them up with goodies for guests to take home. Tie red or green ribbons around the tops of each pair to designate boy or girl ‘stockings’.
