What's the deal with favors?

Posted by Maureen Basile, CGD and Gifting Expert on May 18th 2019

Party Favors are a key part of any event, even corporate events.  First of all, it's a way to show your appreciation for the people who have come to your event.  They've come to celebrate your successes, your love or your business.  

Ok, so we know people are giving up time and money to be there for you.  What do you do?  NO!  You do not run to the nearest dollar store for a cheap frame.  That's not only out of style, but most people will leave them behind.  The corporate pens and pads have their place, but people expect that.  

The single most popular favor is actually food.  People eat it.  People enjoy it.  They bring the treat home for their kids.  Think of all the weird things you have received?  Am I right.  As I write this, I am chuckling because I still cannot figure out the purpose of one object I received a few years ago.  Let me repeat, FOOD is the number one most popular favor for people to receive.  

Unique Food Favors are ideal.  Today, we can put pictures and logos on candy bars, cookies, oreos, graham crackers and so much more.  You can brand the treat with your logo, engagement picture or a message.  We can customize ribbon for you on the spot.  There are so many special things we can do that will really make people remember you and your event.

Now, although I believe all favors should be created here, at Maureen's Sweet Shoppe, there are lots of other options, especially in warmer weather.  Your favorite cookie in a cello bag with printed ribbon will make a great gift.  We're happy to print you ribbon for any occasion or we will do the whole job.  Favors do not need to be expensive or fancy to make a wow impression.  They need just the right finishing touches.  This is where a gifting professional can help.  

We do outside the box favors as well as boxed favors.  We can also assist you with hotel amenity gifts for your out of town guests.  Are you a DIYer?  That's great too.  We can help create water bottle labels, ribbon or anything you need for your special appreciation gift for your out of town guests.  Did you think you could get it done and are running out of time?  No worries, we are here to help.  

The point to remember, it's not about the money you spend, it's about making your guests feel appreciated and special.  It's about making them remember the thoughtful way you treated them so that they remember you!  

Happy Gifting!
