10 Best :: Splendid Summer Favors

By Jennifer Berke

When I was 14, I received a small, beaded journal from a friend’s birthday party and thought I’d never seen anything so beautiful. Believe it or not, I’ve held onto that journal and when I look at it now, I’m transported back to that fun day with friends. Suffice it to say, I’m the Merriam Webster’s textbook definition of a sentimentalist, and when I leave a party with a favor in hand, I tend to hang onto it. Such a lovely token of appreciation from the hostess, the ultimate party favors are both creative and commemorative, and be it in the form of sweet treats or packaging that’s a gift in itself, there’s no time like summer to get playful and seasonal with gift-giving for your guests. Click through for some of our favorites, and be sure to share links for any fabulous summer favors you’ve seen around the web!
