Adult Birthday Party Favor FAQ
Are birthday party favors necessary? No, it is a sweet custom, but party favors are not strictly required.
Party favors have become relatively common recently, so your guests might expect to find a favor at the end of the party or at their place at the table.
Favors don't have to be elaborate or expensive...it really it the thought that counts! A creative and fun party favor is a fabulous way to let your guests know how much you appreciate them.
What should you put in party favor bags for adults? Some of the most popular fillers include sweets, small tokens, or drink mixes.
Try to pick fillers that are meaningful to the guest of honor or that relate to the party theme. For example, macadamia nuts for the Hawaii lover; tea bags for a tea party; bookmarks for the book-lover or librarian are all clever filler ideas.

- Junior Mints
- Bazooka Bubble Gum
- Dots Candy
