Party favour ideas for a little one's birthday

With the birthday season well and truly in swing at Two Cheeky Monkeys HQ, today's post is a timely one for all those mums and dads who are tired of handing out party favours full of sugared up treats that have little ones bouncing off the walls and rotting their teeth!

If you're so exhausted from parenting and party planning that you can't even begin to research alternative party favours, then this is for you!!!  This list of party favour ideas is full of easy, affordable and, most importantly, fun and useful gifts to thank little guests that will make them and their parents smile.

1. Animal themed terrariums

Terrariums are a great idea for older children, and can even be created as one of the party activities!

2. Adjustable floral rings

What could be easier and more adorable for a little girl's party than adjustable floral rings for party favours?

3. Bubbles, bubbles and more bubbles

Small bottles or tubes of bubble mixture are possibly the most affordable party favour you can find and will provide hours of fun to boys and girls of all ages.

4. Temporary tattoos

All kids seem to love temporary tattoos - why not give guests a packet of tattoos matched to the party's theme?  

5. Children's books

This gift not only thanks your guests for coming along to your party, but also encourages the important love of books at a young age.  Children's classics such as Little Golden Books or the Mr Men and Little Miss series are easy to find and afford, but be sure to have a range of books to give in case a guest already owns one of your offerings.

6. Stickers

Last, but not least, is the perennial favourite, stickers!  You can opt for commercial brand stickers from department stores and $2 shops, but if you've planned ahead enough, order some specially handmade stickers to suit your party's theme.
