Party favors

On a whim, I came up with this list of ideas for party favors. A good number of them can (and should!) be personalized. Sometimes personalization of a party favor is the craft project that the whole party is build upon. I did not make any differentiation between kids and grown-up parties, including such specialties as wedding favors, but there are ideas that can be useful for more than one occasion. The list is not comprehensive, but some of these ideas can easily be a source of inspiration for a party. Use it for what it’s worth.
