Balloons, confetti, favors, friends- sounds like a classic kid’s birthday party, right?
Not so fast! If you think parties are just for kids, think again! Adults have lots of milestones to celebrate, too.
Maybe you just got a new job. Maybe you’re thinking of throwing a themed birthday, friendship anniversary, or bachelorette party- the possibilities are endless!
With a little planning and a few party favors for adults, your friends will be amazed at how fun it is to be an adult.
We’ve included our fave party favor ideas below. Read on to get inspiration for any special occasion!
Matches are a fun, yet unexpected party favor. When people think of matches, they think of the fun (or unusual) situations in which they’ve come in handy. Matches are useful, especially during memorable times.
There’s something timelessly cool about matchboxes- you never know when you could need one!
Use your own matchbox to light candles or cake during your party. Personalize them for extra fun with your name and the date!
Personalized Shot Glasses
Shot glasses are great for drinking and collecting! You can easily include either an image or text on it, and you can always get people to use them again at the next big party!
If your shot glass collection is full, you can also opt for other drinking-friendly choices. A personalized birthday rocks glass is great for the whiskey lovers out there!
Mini Glass Candy Jars
You’ve seen the mason jar trend at weddings, but have you seen mini jars? You can fill them with candy, sweet notes, fortunes, even candied fruit. If it fits, you can try it in a cute jar!
You can buy a few or a larger quantity depending on your needs. Custom labels will make them pop, especially with a colored background!
Put a cute ribbon around each one and use them as a table setting. You can also put a special note in each one for your guest to open at a later date.
The possibilities are endless!

Custom Cartoon Cookies
Custom cartoon cookies are an unforgettable party favor. They make for a great talking point, and are easier to order than you think!
People will be amazed at how a few details bring out your distinct features. It’ll be an easy ice breaker to get the party going, which is great for your more introverted friends. Your more outgoing friends will be talking about them for weeks to come!
If you’re doing a joint birthday, you can both be made into cartoon cookies. If you have a small guest count, you can even make one for each guest!
Bar Tool Keychain
Keychains are trending again! Why not make it even more special by getting one that can open any bottle of birthday wine or champagne? Bar tools often have other handy functions, too!
Themed Bottle Stopper
The older we get, the better our wine purchases get, right? This is one party favor your guests will want to use over and over.
So if someone tells you to put a cork in it (so to speak) on your birthday, you can pull out a bottle stopper instead. You can choose one that matches your theme or personalize it.
Inspirational Mini Notebook
The best parties are fun to look back on long after the celebrating stops. A small notebook makes it easy to write down all the fun things people did or said at your party!
On top of that, a notebook is a thoughtful gift that will stand out in your guest’s mind.
You might want one just to jot down crazy memories or memorable quotes from the party.
Give one to each of your guests, and don’t forget to keep one for yourself! You can also write a sweet note on the first page thanking your friend for joining you.
Your guests may have a hard time waiting to open this favor! Let’s be real- the biggest headache with adult birthday parties is hitting the grind the next day.
If you and your friends plan to party like there’s no tomorrow, you can still be prepared for tomorrow. A hangover kit can soften the blow big time!
Fill your hangover kit with seltzer tablets, pain relievers, peppermint tea, and other soothing favors. You could also include gag gifts like sunglasses or a Bloody Mary spice mix!
Custom Coffee Sleeve
A fun drink sleeve will please all of your guests. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a good cup of coffee after a night of celebrating?
Sleeves are great for uploading your own design. You can choose a logo or photo. You can choose ink and cooler colors. For a cheap party favor, you get a lot of options to play with.
If you need to see the complete design to be sure, you can easily get a free proof. You can add a lot of detail or a little, you can change your mind as many times as you want- it’s up to you!
