We’ve all been to a wedding or a party where the parting gifts don’t live up to the event itself. To avoid letting your guests walk out with yet another candle, we’ve put together a compilation of favors they will be proud to leave with.
For of-age guests, a mini bottle of the liquor of your choosing is an easily customizable gift that, chances are, they will actually use and appreciate. If you don’t want to break the bank for alcohol, a unique bottle opener is another fun, boozy idea. If you know a few guests who tend to overindulge themselves, put together a Hangover Helper (ibuprofen, water, and an eye mask) to make their next morning a little easier.
Food is also a great way to go – everyone eats, after all. Pick a food or dessert based on your event theme. Take your guests to Paris with a box of macaroons or bring them to the farm with a jar of homemade jam. You can’t go wrong with a candy buffet for guests to create their own goodie bag. Party-goers will appreciate the effort and attention to detail and, hopefully, enjoy eating.
Compile a party playlist for each guest to take home. Include songs that have meaning to you or fit your event theme so guests can relive the party long after it’s finished. All you need is your iTunes and some blank CDs to give your guests a soundtrack they will love.
