Editor's Picks: Heart-Themed Party Favors
For a children's Valentine's Day party or heart-themed birthday, favors are a must, just like with any kid's party. Between the grocery store, dollar store, and craft stores; there are so many possibilities.
For a school party, some Valentine pencils and stickers are a safe bet and easy because you can get them ready ahead of time. The heart-shaped crayons pictured above are also great for school parties or birthday parties. You can make your own with leftover broken crayons and a silicone heart mold. Place a few in a clear cello bag and finish it off with ribbon. Around Valentine's Day, you may even be able to find small heart-themed notebooks or activity books for $1 each to pair with the crayons. Check in your local dollar store or the $1 section of your local craft store.
If it's an all-girl party, you can go girly and give some heart-shaped sunglasses, dress-up jewelry, or little heart bracelets. A very simple heart-themed party favor you can pick up from the craft store is a heart-shaped cookie cutter. You should be able to get them for about $1 each. Tie a pretty ribbon on for an instant heart favor.
Something sweet is always a great idea for a Valentine's Day party favor. Package some foil-wrapped chocolate hearts in festive favor bag. If you're down to the wire and your local supermarket is running low on Valentine's Day candy, you can always find some plain Hershey Kisses. Package them in heart-printed cello bags and tie with ribbon for a sweet love-themed party favor. If for some reason you can't get your hands on Hershey's kisses, or if you want a dairy-free option, go for anything pink or red like gumballs or gummi candies. Though really any kind of sweet treat in the right favor packaging can make the perfect Valentine's Day party favor. Pictured: Wilton Heartfelt Valentine's Treat Envelopes
You can also let kids build their own favor bags. Get beautiful candies all in pink or purple or whichever color matches your party decor and arrange them in various glass containers. Supply cello candy bags and twisty ties so they can fill their own bag with their candies of choice. Pictured: pink candy party kit
I love the idea of throwing a Conversation Hearts themed party. Candy hearts come in mini boxes, the perfect size to give out as party favors, and you can also use them to decorate a cake or cupcakes.
