Graduation Party Favors


Party favors are a nice way to be grateful to your guests for attending your celebration party, thank them for their thoughtful presents, and send them on their way with their own "present" from your party. The task to choose the graduation party favors can be quite challenging. You wonder what would be suitable for different ages and tastes of people coming to the party.

The most important thing to consider is what you want the graduation party favors to do? Do you want them to be:

  • Memorable and appropriate
  • Inexpensive especially if you have a large number of people coming to the party
  • Something that everyone will love no matter what their age or gender
  • Something you can get involved in making
  • Something that could be personalized - so it would be unique and make reference to the graduate
  • A small gift the graduate can be proud of

Custom graduation party favors- 

  • Graduation is a time of reflection. Time of emotions and a time of fun parties! You can make custom t-shirts, hats, shot glasses, or bags to give to your guests.

Rotating Graduation Pen-

  • The perfect tribute for graduation class members. You can personalize this pen as a salute to the Class, the School and the Year.
  • It's a perfect favor or keepsake for graduation parties. Use your own 4 lines as the mes sage. This can be available online or at any good mall.

Candy Bar Wrappers- 

  • Why throw tassels when you can pass out personalized Graduation candy wrappers? You can throw them if you want, but we'd recommend eating them.
  • Either way, they will be a hit! To save some money, choose a personalized candy bar-get variety of chocolate bars, foil and wrappers of different colors, fonts, graphics and make them up yourself.
  • Want more? You also have the option of adding a photo to it. But you have to search for this option online. Here are a few ideas for short messages to add to your candy bar wrapper:

Thanks for sharing my day! The tassel was worth the hassle! Hats off to the graduate!

Unique Graduation Party Favor-

  • Try giving a boxed set of beeswax candles rolled to look like diplomas. You can either have the candles in the grad's school colors or keep the party favors their natural color and use colored ribbon for the school colors.
  • Have a small message tag noting the grad's name, date of graduation and from which school. If you're looking for a unique idea in party favors try using custom candles in tin. They smell great, people love them, and they're more useful than traditional favors. You can personalize tin in a matching color to the candle inside. Each candle makes a great keepsake.

Something Personal- 

  • Give each guest a white t-shirt and set out permanent markers so that they can sign each other's shirts or write funny messages. Involve the teachers as well to write something for each one of the graduate's classmates.
  • Let them put on the shirts and get them photographed. It's a special way to send the guests with a perfect graduation favor.

Homemade Graduation Cap Favor-

1. Egg Carton Cup
2. Cardboard
3. Paint
4. Glue
5. Ribbon or Yarn

Instructions:

Cut a single cup from an egg carton; cut a 4 - 5 inch square piece of lightweight cardboard (like from a cereal box). Paint one side of the cardboard square and the egg cup the school colors. Let these dry and then paint the other side. Once completely dry, put a dab on glue in the center of the cardboard square and attach the egg carton cup with the opening up. When you turn this over it will look like a graduation cap! Cut yarn or ribbon about 4 - 5 inches long and attach it to the center of the cardboard to act as the tassel. You now have made a great decoration or even a cup to hold graduation party favors!
