Let’s Have a Favorite Things Party!

November 13, 2023


Team LIY

I don’t know if you’ve heard about these Favorite Things Parties or not, but if you haven’t, I am so happy to finally be introducing you to the concept! Here’s the thing with us girls – we all get fascinated and some may even say obsessed with certain products. When was the last time you bought a new beauty product or kitchen gadget and then proceeded to tell five of your girlfriends that they MUST try it asap?! Exactly. We talk about these things, we get giddy about these things and we can’t stand knowing that some of our friends may not be using said things. IT’S TIME TO MAKE OUR DREAMS OF EVERYBODY OWNING WHAT WE LOVE A REALITY. Insert a Favorite Things Party. The concept is super simple and the execution is even simpler [that’s where we come into play – our gift ideas are all outlined below!] The LIY team has put together a few of ourrrr favoriteeee thingssss 🎶 laid out by price point so that you can get the wheels turning on what you may want to take or try for your favorite things party, depending on the chosen budget! Keep on reading for FREE printable + mobile invitation downloads for your party!

Side note: you can host this at ANY time of the year, it does not need to be a holiday event!

What is a Favorite Things Party?

Let’s start with the basics – what is a Favorite Things party, exactly? Allow me. A Favorite Things party is when you invite any amount of friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, or whomever you want to enjoy an evening of fun with over for an hour or three. The only stipulation? If attending, they must bring a favorite thing of their own under a certain price limit [we are sharing $10, $15, and $20 budgets below!]. Most often your price limit is typically around $10 [see each of our $10 favorites at the bottom of this post!] and you would bring multiples of the gift for each guest. HOWEVER, you can mix it up and make your favorite things party your own!
