Bar Mitzvah - Party Favors for the Guests

A party for a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah is never without party favors for the guests. Giving away party favors makes the invitees feel appreciated for coming to the celebration. Itís also the parentsí way of expressing their gratitude to the guests for being there during their childís very important event.

Party favors are small gifts which vary widely depending on the type of occasion and the budget. They can be purchased from specialty shops or department stores but they can also be handmade to provide a more personal touch.

For children, numerous items are available today ranging from school supplies, photo frames, candies and chocolates to key chains and colorful handmade crafts. However, itís best to pick items related to your theme notably if the party has a specific theme.


Photo frames imprinted with party details are nice. These frames come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. You can place the frame at each place setting and use it as a place card. Create a place card using a white or colored paper printed with the guestís name and then insert it in the frame. Quotes can also be used instead of names.


Scented candles in fun shapes are great for children and adults alike. You can choose just one shape such as the star of Israel or a mix of stars and moon.

Candle holders

Votive candle holders can also be used as place cards featuring cards printed with the guestís name in colorful fonts.

Chocolate and candies

A Hersheyís bar with a personalized label and tied with a ribbon is a lovely idea. Otherwise, a small paper bag filled with candies and bite-size chocolates will surely delight the friends of your child.

Key chains

This is one item teen guests will definitely treasure. Key chains can either be related to the partyís theme or a favorite sports ball or cartoon character of the celebrant or a big key to symbolize the bar mitzvah or bat mitzvahís entry into adulthood. They will surely be used in the school bags of the young guests.


Pens with unique prints and shapes are very useful giveaways. The guests will remember your child every time they use the pen in school or at home when writing their assignments.


If youíre the creative mom, it would be great to make personalized party favors. These could include a standing or hanging picture frame using handmade paper and ribbons, a small scrapbook album, a purse or a tote bag filled with cookies, candies, mints or chocolates. Candles can also be made at home if you have the time.

As a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah celebration marks your childís entry into the adult world, a small glass or ceramic goblet can be a nice giveaway. You can then decorate it with beads, ribbons and buttons or use a glass paint to write the name of your child and the event on it.

Keep in mind that party favors need not be expensive. Itís supposed to serve as a souvenir for guests to take home and remember the good time they had during your childís bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah party.
