Faviana’s Guide to DIY Party Favors

DIY party favors are a great way to show your gratitude toward your loved ones who have helped and supported you throughout your entire event. This is your opportunity to get crafty and creative and make some cute, affordable favors that your friends and family will adore. Making your own DIY party favors is a heartfelt way to show your appreciation toward your beloved guests.

When choosing a party favor, I would suggest giving a gift that is practical. Don’t waste your time and money giving a junky gift that is going to end up “tchotchke-ing” up his or her home. Here is Faviana’s guide to DIY party favors to help you create easy and cute gifts for all of your guests!

Succulents are a cute and trendy little gift that your guests will obsess over! They can go anywhere in the house and are an adorable addition to any room. They can also double as name holders, making them the perfect table decoration. All you have to do is buy the succulents at your local florist, put them in cute little jars, and tie a bow and tag around it. Your friends and family will love to watch them grow into a beautiful plant. You also don’t have to worry about giving your guests another chore – these little plants are low-maintenance and very easy to take care of! All they have to do is put it in a sunny area and water it once a week.

These beautiful, delicate soaps are a very practical and classy party favor. They smell amazing, and are also a gorgeous decoration for your guests’ bathroom! Not only are homemade soaps beautiful and unique, but they also give you healthier and clearer skin because they are made of natural ingredients and are rich in antioxidants. The recipe is a little timely; however, the end result is so worth it! You have the ability to choose the ingredients, scent, and color. Try adding some of your old dried up flowers to make them look even more beautiful and expensive!

A sugar scrub is a great gift that everyone can use to make his or her skin feel and smell amazing! The best part is that this recipe is super fast and simple to make! You only need four ingredients: Coconut oil, Sugar, Mint extract, and Food coloring. Simply mix the ingredients together, and put it in any jar of your choice! Add a cute ribbon and label to complete the look. Sugar scrubs are a natural and safe alternative to other scrubs that will pamper your guest, leaving their skin exfoliated and smoother than ever!

P.S. You may want to make an extra batch for yourself so you can relax after the stressful months of party planning.
