Party favors are practically a must for a kids’ party, but let’s be real, most of them end up broken or forgotten before the sugar rush has even worn off. So we challenged moms Anda, Karen G., Olivia, and Karen K.—aka the Evite Party Picks team—to find the coolest party favors under $10 on Etsy. Not only did they discover some wonderfully creative, high-quality favors on Etsy, but they also purchased them to make sure they were as amazing IRL as they are on a screen. Here’s what lived up to (or exceeded) their (and their kids’) expectations!
We all oohed and ahhed at these Stoney Clover Lane-inspired pouches. You can opt to customize with a soft chenille patch initial or a cute little symbol (which are great to have on hand in case you have an unexpected guest whose parents missed all of your RSVP reminders. There’s always at least one!).
Not only was this Karen K’s sons’ most-favored favor, but it just might be ours too. This adorable reusable plastic popcorn tub was added to more than one wishlist after we reviewed all of the picks, and really, it’s something special. We still can’t get over how inexpensive it is for the quality!
Beaded friendship bracelets are having a major moment, and you can never have too many pairs of sunnies lying around. The combo of tiny articulated daisies and custom bead names means they’re far less likely to lose this pair. This favor won a lot of mom approvals!
We did that thing most people do where you don’t read the description carefully, so when we discovered that these cups change color depending on the temperature, we all went, “WHOOOOAAAAA COOOOOL” because we’re really 5 at heart. If your kid is in their dino phase (they probably are), this will be a roaring success.
We love anything that encourages kids to down with a great book, so personalized bookmarks are more than a novel idea to us. Karen G.’s kids loved them and the cute little paper “hands” that go over the page to keep the marker in place.
Mom Olivia’s daughter couldn’t wait to wear hers! The silky-smooth satin and multiple personalization options are a dream, and anything that helps get the kids excited about bedtime is a win for sure.
Remember the thrill of opening a fresh box of crayons? The brilliant colors, smooth shape and THAT smell. Okay, this is like that, BUT EVEN BETTER because you can personalize them with someone’s name.
These full-size hair brushes are so pretty, you’d think they were just for looks, but make no mistake, they’re definitely up to taming locks, too! A solid (well, floral pattern) choice for a spa day party favor!
“Cute and useful” is how mom Karen G. describes these colorful notebooks, and her son agrees. We dig the vast range of text and notebook color combos, as well as the name-over-initial custom design. They even come with pens so they can start using them “write” away!
NGL, this party favor was the one we were the most excited to see in person, because who doesn’t love a cute straw bag? It’s big enough to use as a party favor bag at a spa or beach party, but cool enough to be toted around as a purse afterward. Gotta love a bag that can do it all!
You can find all of these—along with hand-picked themed party supplies—on our Party Picks page. Happy partying!
