DIY: New Year’s Eve Party Favors
Get started with these fun and fabulous bags for all your New Year’s swag.
- Plain brown gift bag
- Large letter stickers (black, white, silver and gold are the most festive)
- Gold tissue paper and ribbon
Write New Year’s messages on the outside of the bags in stickers. Be creative. Happy New Year! Cheers! 5,4,3,2… Create unique messages for your guests to choose from, and you won’t have to use the same letters over and over again. So you’ll go through less sheets of stickers. Add some bling by tying gold ribbon to the handle and stuffing the bag with gold tissue paper.
A Fizzy Toast
Pop. Fizz. Clink. Give everyone a chance to pop a cork at midnight with individual bottles of champagne.
- Mini bottles of champagne
- White Elmer’s glue
- Gold/silver glitter or confetti
- Gold ribbon
Glam up the bottles by coating them in white Elmer’s glue and rolling them in glitter or gold and silver confetti. Finish them off by tying the top with gold ribbon.
Make sure all your guests are ready for the midnight kiss.
- Packs of gum (or mints)
- Lip balm
- Black/gold paper
- Silver letter stickers
- Gold ribbon
Decorate the favors by wrapping them in black or gold paper. Then write fun smooch-inspired messages on the outside with silver stickers like “mwah” and more kissing sounds and words. Pucker up. Lip smack. You get the idea …
Midnight Kisses for All
No one is going home from your party without a kiss at midnight. Even if it’s the chocolate kind.
- Mini favor bags
- Hershey’s Kisses
Write “kisses” or “midnight kisses” on the outside of the favor bags and fill them with chocolate Hershey’s Kisses.
A New Year’s Twist
Remix the traditional champagne toast with our gold sugar-shimmered champagne or cocktail strawberries. They’re a great way for designated drivers, kids and friends that don’t drink to join in the fun.
