There’s been much debate about birthday party favors in recent years. As a parent of a party guest, I understand that taking home more “junk” is not ideal. But as a birthday party host, it’s fun to give our favors as a thank-you. So as a compromise, I found 8 useful unicorn birthday party favors for you to consider.

Treat bags are the classic party favor, and they can be as simple or complex as you desire. Whatever you choose to fill them with, our free printable bag topper will ensure your favors stay on theme. Keep it easy by using sandwich bags as your goodie bags–the topper will cover the zip top.
Ideas for treat bag fillers:
- pencils or erasers
- temporary tattoos
- small lip balms or nail polish (depending on the age of your party guests)
As a parent, I will never turn down socks. Where do they all seem to go?? I would be so excited if my daughter received a pair of these as a party favor. And they’re perfectly unicorny.
For the slightly older kids, this ADORABLE lip balm is a perfect party favor. I like it because it’s substantial enough to stand alone. Throw a quick tag on it with a ribbon and you’re all set.
What kid doesn’t like temporary tattoos? We like these tattoos because they come in a large sheet that you can easily cut down to 1 or 2 per child, and include in their goody bag.
Here’s another substantial favor that can stand alone, and doesn’t cost a lot of money. Or if you want to go all out, you can fill these up with even more goodies!
My daughters have received a few of these from different parties over the years. The great thing is that they’re totally into them. They wear them quite often–both for playing pretend and for normal everyday accessorizing!
Books, like socks, are something I don’t think you can have enough of. This sweet Little Golden Book is a perfect thank you gift for all of your party guests.
Ah, slime. I have such a love-hate relationship with you. My kids love the stuff, but I can’t stand it in our house. But alas, it’s SUCH a kid favorite, I had to include it on my list. Plus, with all the fun stuff that comes with this kit, you can turn the slime decorating into a party activity. Let the kids mix-in their baubles of choice, and then take their completed slime home with them.
