70s Party Favors
The 70s was a fun and exciting decade filled with funky styles, cool music, and much more!
No wonder so many children of that era are opting to celebrate their birthdays or other special occasions with a 70s party!
Planning for a 70s themed party is lots of fun. There are so many options for decorations, food, costumes, and more, depending on what part of the decade the party thrower wants to honor – the early 70s and the end of the hippie era, or the disco culture that was so popular during the last four or five years of the 1970s.
Anyone who is throwing a 70s party will no doubt want to send their friends home with something to help them remember the fun they had at the party and the good times that were the 1970s.
Party favors – something each guest takes home when they leave – are always a good idea and putting something together that reflects the theme of the party is always fun and challenging for the host.
For 70s party favors, there are a number of options. If you think about the fads of the decade, you’ll no doubt come up with some great ideas.
For example, pet rocks were quite popular in the 70s and are pretty easy to make. Just find some garden rocks – about 2 inches in size – clean them off and add small eyes to them.
If you’re really ambitious, you can put each in a small box and name each rock.
Mood rings are also a great 70s party favor. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, from simple wedding band-style rings to larger oval or heart-shaped rings.
They are fairly reasonable in price; kid-sized rings can be found for as low as $1 to $2 depending on the style and adult-sized rings are just a little more expensive.
Other jewelry gifts might include peace necklaces, which are available in a wide variety of styles, colors, and sizes. Hosts might also be able to find disco ball necklaces or similar jewelry related to the disco era.
Another fun 70s party favor idea is to organize a treat bag for each guest using the popular candies of the era. Many of these candies are still available if you take some time to search a bit.
Examples of favorite 70s candy might include Bottle Caps, Blow Pops, candy buttons, candy necklaces, Laffy Taffy, Necco Wafers, Now & Later, Razzles, Sky Bars, Chuckles, Abba Zaba, and many others.
Are your guests into 70s music? Then you might consider a party favor that includes a CD featuring some of the greatest hit tunes of the decade.
Look for music by favorite artists such as Barry Manilow, Kiss, Queen, Stevie Wonder, The Eagles, The Bee Gees, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Carole King, Pink Floyd, and many others.
