Party favors are gifts given to the guests at parties by the host or hostess. These gifts can be varying in prices, texture, product etc. they are given out of courtesy and as thanksgiving to the guests for coming. The host or hostess, according to their budget may buy or make the gifts at home also keeping in mind the time as for formal occasions the time is limited for other things are also to be looked upon. For formal occasions the gifts might be expensive because the host and the hostess have more budgets and there are grownups who attend the wedding and they should not be given invaluable things. For informal occasions like birthday parties, inexpensive gifts are expected and also given out as the budget is relatively less as compared to formal occasions like weddings.
In Britain party favors are called party bags fillers, loot bags or simply goodie bags. In Australia they are called party bags or party packs, in India party favors are termed as return gifts and in the Philippines they are simply called give-a ways. In the past party favors were allotted a certain amount from the overall budget of the occasion. For formal occasions like weddings 20% of the total budget was kept aside for party favors and for informal occasions like birthday parties 5-10% was taken aside from the budget. Party favors also depend on the time you have till the big day, if you have planned the party months in advance then it is better to make them at home with the help of some people, that would be cheaper and you will have more to spend on the occasion itself, but if you don’t have much time then buying the gifts would be better. Party favors are appropriate for occasions like birthday celebrations, weddings, christening and other social events.
Party favors vary with the nature of the occasion. For example if it’s a birthday party of a baby then the guests will be other children along with their parents, there party favors like goodie bags with a toy or a chocolate in it would be suitable for the kids, if it’s a Halloween party then giving out treats as party favors would be suitable and if the occasion is an anniversary then giving out something that people can look upon in the future for good memories would be efficient. Bouquets are also an option for party favors for formal occasions. For gatherings such as birthday parties gifts such as confetti, party hats and gift bags are mostly given out.
