A birthday party isn’t complete without return gifts! Here are 8 Awesome Birthday Party Favors that are non-toys and both parents & kids will love.
“A party without cake is just a meeting.” – Julia Child
In the good old days, a gathering of kids was considered a party as long as there was cake. But with new and interesting themes, a party today is as much fun for the planner as it is for the birthday boy or girl!!
A birthday party’s theme reflects in everything – food, entertainment, decor and finally, the Party favours or the return gifts. Everything has to be perfect! Return gifts are the icing on the cake as little guests go home with a smile on their faces. I love choosing return gifts that are both enjoyable and useful – both the kids and their Moms will thank you!
8 Awesome Birthday Party Favours that kids will love
Not another toy! You say? Well, you are in for a treat. There are plenty of alternatives that children will enjoy just as much as a new toy but won’t add to the clutter. Even better, many non-toy gifts will lead to enriching experiences, learning, and valuable family time.
1. Outer Space Birthday Party Favors
Blast off to birthday fun with this Outer Space party! Your mini cosmonauts will love your space-themed food and decorations, plus they’ll enjoy taking back an Astronaut & Rocket making craft that’s truly out of this world.
2. Princess Birthday Party Favors
You’ll be hard pressed to find a little girl who hasn’t celebrated at least one birthday in princess style! Whether it’s a Disney princess or a regular princess party, a pretty Princess watch makes for a lovely return gift. Go for a digital watch if your guests are too young to tell the time from a regular watch.
3. Milk and Cookie Monster Birthday Party Favours
Get your ice cold glasses of milk ready, because we’ve got the sweetest Cookie Monster Birthday Party for you. It’s a real crowd pleaser because come on…who doesn’t love cookies? Brown and blue paper, with polka-dots and cookie accents, a super cute milk bar & cookie buffet, is the recipe for one stylish party that will be a big hit with all Sesame Street fans.
Add a healthy twist to the party favours, instead of the usual sugary treats, let each kid stop by the return gift table and fill up their bags with an array of Sipahh’s scrumptious flavoured Straws. Multiple yummy flavours like the Okey-Dokey Cookie & Cream, Cocoa Bean Chocolate, Hello Marshmallow that come in a fun Milk Can-Shaped Celebration Pack, makes this the perfect return gift. Rip, Dip & Sip. With less than 2 grams of sugar per straw, no preservatives & artificial colouring, the moms will be happy too.
4. Secret Agent / Spy Birthday Party Favors
Your mission: Throw your child a great spy-themed birthday party. Secret codes, laser beams, a top secret mission and high security, everyone knows the password to the fun is ‘spy party’! Put together a goody bag with a magnifying glass, a disguise (a fake mustache), a pen, a small notebook to take notes and an awesome book – Harriet the Spy. Pack them in brown bags labelled Top Secret.
5. Colorful Rainbow Birthday Party Favors
A rainbow themed party is another evergreen party theme, and the best part is that it’s suitable for both boys and girls. It’s also a relatively simpler party to plan for – all you need are colors! For a return gift, try out a big set of colored connector pens like this one from Faber Castell or a set of Rainbow Sharpie markers.
6. Garden Birthday Party Favors
What better way to celebrate your child’s spring or summer birthday than with a garden party? Birthday party with bright beautiful flower backdrops, ladybug cupcakes, brightly painted birdhouses are the perfect centerpiece, and for mom they can be reused in the backyard! Of course, it’s not a party without some treats to take home. Send children off with packets of seeds, kid-size garden gloves, small watering cans, sheets of flower stickers– and, perhaps, a Hand Painted Photo frame.
7. Dr. Seuss Party Favors
With his birthday coming up in March, a Dr. Seuss birthday theme is perfect for a birthday boy or girl born in the third month of the year. While there are many Seuss characters, the Lorax is one of the most inspirational, and a Lorax DVD is ideal for youngsters who want to save the world.
8. Superhero Party Favors
Superheroes are a boy’s favourite pick for a birthday party theme. With the Dawn of Justice releasing soon, this is sure to be a hot favourite in the coming months! Get into the spirit by getting them to make these super fun Superhero Piggy Banks themselves. The banks will make a cool accessory to their superhero bedroom decor. My sister’s son, who made this, is now saving up to buy his own Batman figurine.
