Party Favors for Teenagers

With teenagers thinking of a party favors that would truly appreciate can be quite a task. You need to tread that fine line between giving them a gift that is not too childish and a gift that does not seem to mature for their age.
It also needs to take into account the age of the guests at the party and the interests that the group of teenagers share. Here are some of the favors that you can opt to give guests at a party.


Teenage girls and guys both love accessories and you can cater to this by giving them party favors like key chains, jewelry, earrings, rings, sunglasses, wallets, purses, etc. There is no end to the kind of accessories that can make their way into the party favor bag.


While this may seem like an expensive idea, t-shirts for guys, and tops for girls can be obtained for a discounted rate.
You can also opt to have plain tops that teens can paint on and expand their creative horizons.

Gift Certificates

While this may seem like a slightly impersonal idea, in fact this works well. Give them gift certificates to their favorite coffee shop or their favorite music store. Present this gift certificate to them in style. Place it in a coffee mug, or attach it to a balloon.


It is kind of difficult to go wrong with this as a party favor. Give every guest a ticket to a movie that is long awaited. Team it up with a gift certificate that also allows them to buy refreshments during the movie. What can be better than this?


Teenager loves music and what can be a better idea than giving them Blue ray discs or USB drives with a collection of music. Get your teenager to help you out with the collection for the CD. Try to add music from different genres to cater to a wide range of taste.
These are just some of the options that you can try out. If it is an all girls party and you are looking out for party favors, then you could probably create a makeup bag with all those cosmetics that are appropriate for their age and that they are sure to love.
For a guy's birthday party, you can consider favors that include sporting items like skateboard accessories, surfing accessories, etc. Individual personalized gifts like photos can also work well as birthday favors. If you live next to the beach, then you can probably opt for favors like flip-flops, beach towels, etc.

The best way to come up with a perfect gift for a teenager's party is to ensure that you take your child's opinion into consideration as it will be difficult to go wrong with expert opinion.
