Glassware comes in all forms, from stemware to knickknacks. There are a number of ways to personalize glass, such as etching, engraving, screen printing, painting and affixing decals. When selecting an appropriate personalized favor, consider one made from glass. If you’re throwing an Oktoberfest, give beer mugs personalized with the event name, place and date. For a wedding celebration, personalize stemware with the bride and groom’s names, or provide individually engraved champagne glasses, each personalized with a name from the wedding party. Instead of wineglasses or beer mugs, personalize shot glasses. Typically, the cost per piece will be less if you apply the same artwork or text to each favor.
Instead of ordering personalized favors, make them yourself by using your computer, printer and specialty sticker paper. Using specialty papers and products gives you the freedom to create individual decorative labels to say whatever you want, such as the name of the guest, the event or both. Creating your own stickers gives you a wider selection of gift ideas to personalize, such as coffee mugs, wine bottles, water bottles, gift bags, decorative jars or other items.
Major candy manufacturers offer personalized candy products. Order chocolate bars in personalized wrappers. Personalize candy-covered chocolate rounds with a message or image. If you’ve waited until the last minute and forgot to order the candy, decorate personalized cupcakes. While the cupcakes will be more of a party dessert than a party favor, it is a way to give a personalized, last-minute offering to the party guests.
For an intimate occasion, such as a bridal party, engraved sterling silver is an elegant personalized favor. For the groomsmen consider personalized engraved silver flasks, money clips or tie clips. For the bridesmaids, give engraved charms, bracelets or anklets.
A funky personalized favor is a tattoo, a temporary tattoo. Use your computer to create the personalized artwork and print the tattoos on specialty tattoo decal paper. Consider the tattoo favor for your next kid party, teen event or adult gathering.
