With graduation comes graduation parties.  We shared a few weeks ago how to add personalized décor to your graduation party, and yesterday we shared some great graduation t-shirts for the entire family. Today we thought we’d bring it back to the graduation party. One sure fire way to make your graduation party stand out is to have a fun favor to offer to each guest at the party. Today we’re rounding up some of our favorite graduation party favor ideas.

Candy Bar

In the wedding world, candy bars have been around for a while. Candy bars are fun for the guest and relatively easy on the host. You will need to set up a table and have lots of different candy options. Make sure to keep in mind the heat factor. No one wants melted snickers. Have bowls of all shapes and sizes and fill them up with a variety of candy. Guests can then fill up a small bag/box with the candy that they chose. A candy bar is such a fun graduation party favor idea and one that all guests will love!


Pens are something that we always need and can never find.  That is why pens are such an excellent party favor idea. You can sprinkle them on the table for guests to take or place them by a guest book. Either way, having a personalized pen is a great favor that will be used and appreciated by guests.


Offering inexpensive personalized sunglasses as the graduation party favor idea is a fun way to add a special touch. Most graduation parties are held during the summer, where heat and sun are a significant factor. Offering a little shade for the guests will make this party favor a colossal hit.

Stadium/Party Cup

Stadium cups make an incredibly useful graduation party favor idea. Rather than having solo cups at the event, simply have a personalized stadium cup for each guest. Guests can then use their cup at the event for beverages and then take it with them as they leave.
