With the countdown continuing, it’s a great time to create some wonderfully fun and delicious party favors for your Christmas party. Christmas is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year and throwing a Christmas party gets everyone in the spirit! Instead of waving guests goodbye or purchasing a generic party favor, try creating some of these unique DIY party favors that will really end the party on a sweet note!


  • Marshmallow Snowflakes

    Marshmallows are easy to make from scratch and are a perfect low-cost party favor. Slice your marshmallows into snowflakes with a cookie cutter and group them in cellophane with ribbon to hand as guests leave your party. These marshmallow snowflakes look so elegant and are perfect to dip into your late night hot chocolate.

  • Cookie Dough Gift Boxes

    The Partiologist created these “Christmas lights” party favor boxes. Clean out those old light bulbs and use them in this unique way. The Christmas lights are filled with different cookie decorations such as graham crackers, chocolate chips and sprinkles! This little box creates the perfect Christmas party favor that guests can go home and actually use. 

  • Peppermint Fudge Cupcake Jars

    This recipe is out of this world. Our Best Bites prepared these Peppermint Fudge Cupcake Jars with a special striped frosting. Handing these out after a Christmas party will satisfy any guest’s midnight cravings. As soon as they bite in they will be happily surprised to taste that ooey gooey chocolate in the center! Homemade recipes like this one really show people that you care. 

  • Personal Hot Chocolate Sets

    Everyone loves hot chocolate during Christmastime! Create these personal hot cocoa kits to hand out at the end of your night. Everyone will love the convenience of having everything you need for this hot drink all wrapped up in a set. These also make great Valentine’s Day presents; just add pink, heart shaped marshmallows instead of white ones!

  • Handmade Ornaments

    Handmade ornaments are extremely unique and creative. To make these great favors only requires one piece of cardstock. People will enjoy being given something they can actually use in their home. Make each ornament unique so guests will feel extra special after leaving your party!

  • Santa Hat Brownies

    These Santa hat brownies can be a delicious favor for guests or a sweet treat to serve on your dessert table. They are very simple and only require strawberries, brownie mix and white chocolate. This is a great homemade gift to show your guests you went the extra mile.
