CELEBRATE: Favorite Things Celebration


How does it work? Each person brings 5 of their FAVORITE THING and it can't cost more than $5. Now let's do the math... 5 of the same item times $5 each equals a $25 total budget. Got it? Number of guests invited and amount of budget may vary according to the party host. You can choose one of anything you like such as your FAVORITE lotion, gift card to your FAVORITE store, FAVORITE kitchen utensil, box of your FAVORITE candy, FAVORITE magazine, etc. In addition to the gifts, you could also ask everyone to share their FAVORITE FOOD or DRINK.

Once you have arrived at the party, write your name on five slips of paper and toss in a bowl. Pass the bowl around so that each guest can draw five different names (be sure not to pick your own). One at a time each person introduces their FAVORITE THING and then reads out loud the five names they picked from the bowl while giving their FAVORITE THING to those five guests.

After everyone at the party has presented their FAVORITE THING, each individual should end up with 5 gifts. As a courtesy, the host should provide a gift box or bag for them to conveniently take their gifts home. The most interesting part of the party is seeing what other people have chosen to share as their FAVORITE THING! Who knows, maybe someone else's FAVORITE THING may end up being your NEW FAVORITE THING?
