Inside: The Ultimate List of Teen Party Favor Ideas.

If you think the days of handing out party favors are behind you, think again. Teens and tweens may be growing up and developing a newfound sense of independence, but they still love their parties.

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, Halloween party or another special event, don’t forget to send guests home with a bag full of fun treats. Sure, tweens may no longer be interested in finger puppets and tiny jars of Play-Doh, but there are plenty of age-appropriate goodies that are sure to please.

When choosing your party favors, try to think of one larger, feature item you know the kids will flip over. It could be something like a game for boys or a bracelet kit for girls. The rest of the bag can be filled with smaller things and edible goodies, but most of their attention will go to the showstopper and make the event even more memorable.

Need a little inspiration? Let’s explore inexpensive and unexpected teen party favor ideas to get you started.
