8 Easy Favors That Are Perfect for a Winter Party

Read next

We feel for your winter birthday babies: celebrating in the shadow of the holiday season is tough! We’ve rounded up eight party favor ideas for kids that promise to make their special day that much more special—and parents will appreciate that none of them include candy. Whether you’re looking for a magic wand or a DIY memory game to while away cozy winter days, we have the perfect party favor to wrap up your little one’s celebration. See them all below.

Bitty Bubble Jars

These pint-sized glass jars from The Pretty Blog are the perfect size for bubbles—and the pipe cleaner bubble wands are genius! Adding a few drops of food coloring in winter shades of icy blues transforms an anytime-toy into an adorable seasonal favor.

Adorable Aprons

For a group of budding chefs—or perhaps for a cookie decorating gathering—consider passing out aprons so that you don’t send home tiny bakers encrusted in frosting and sprinkles. While these aprons from Lillian Hope Designs are personalized with iron-on transfer paper, you could easily swap out guests’ names for a mixture of holiday symbols, snowflakes, snowmen ... you get the idea!

Wonderfully Easy Wands

For the Frozen fanatics who just can’t let it go, make their whimsical dreams come true by outfitting each and every guest with one of these Elsa wands from Aesthetic Nest. Using just a dowel rod, a few ribbons, and some snowflake ornaments, they’ll soon be turning everything into snow and ice.  

Party Pampering

For older children who enjoy a little pampering, dole out these mini manicure kits from Evermine. The frosted bags are on-target for the season, and you can change up the packaging and nail polish colors for a more wintery look. You could even include tiny bottles of hand cream to protect little fingers in the dry cold!  

Make Your Own Memory

Compact enough to slip into a backpack or purse, this pint-sized memory game from The Green Divas is perfect for airplane rides, doctor’s office waiting rooms, or restaurants. The options for images on each wooden coin are only limited by your local craft store’s stamp selection! Your special birthday kid will have a ton of fun making these games for his friends, too. 

Let It Snow

Give your guests the double-whammy magic of a snow globe AND a LEGO miniature! These hand-held jars from Minieco will entrance little eyes for hours—both with their softly-falling glittery “snow” and the LEGO figurine inside. Let your child choose different figurines for her guests to choose from for themselves.
