Get creative with your holiday labels and design them in festive colors with a picture of yourself or your name in fun font.

One CRUMBS cupcake. Everyone loves a great cupcake. Put each individual cupcake in their own box, and tie closed with a ribbon so that it mirrors the image of a present.
A great ornament. Ornaments are always a great idea for a holiday party favor because they serve as reminders of your party each year that they are hung on the tree! Try to customize your ornament to match the taste of the person you is receiving the gift. For example, my son, Lucas, loves our miniature shih tzu, Lulu Flynn, so for Christmas, I put an ornament in his stocking of a shih tzu puppy.
A box of great holiday cards. A great holiday card is guaranteed to be hit with all of your guests because they can turn around and use them during the holiday season. You can find fun, festive holiday cards at Paper-Source and Hallmark stores, and can then have addressed in an elegant calligraphy font. If you don’t want to spend the money on buying cards from a store, make your own holiday cards and tie them with a ribbon. I like customizing my cards by making labels with pictures of my son and dog dressed in holiday attire, and then pasting them on each card before they are sent out! If you don’t have the time, Paper-Source makes great holiday cards.
