My daughter is turning 15 and it seems that every year it is more difficult to come up with party favor ideas. I would appreciate any suggestions that other moms might be able to offer.

What can I do next?

My daughters are 17 and 14 going on 15. Party favors to me are up to the individual. Some girls are into makeup, nail polish and things like that at that age and some aren't. For my daughters 16th birthday party I ordered personalized M&M's for her guest and they loved them. Put them in some type of decorative bag or container and add whatever else you would like. You can also search the net and find personalized candy bars and other things.

Kids that age are in to doing nails so make or buy the little satin bags, a pack of colorful emory boards, a box of nail polish remover wipe packets the mini-size travel bottles of nail polish (sometimes they come in a 4 pack for a dollar or 2)and if you want to add something else, little travel size bottles of lotion. All can be picked up at Wal-mart or somewhere like that and make fun gifts.

You can also pick up little dollar store jewelry boxes and put varying amounts of cash ($1 to $5) or McDonald, arcade (or other popular place) gift certificates inside. Wrap each and let them do a game (not allowed to open the actual Jewelry Box to see what is inside) but decide if they want to keep the one they chose or change for someone elses (like a Chinese Auction) only by whether they like the outside of the jewelery box (or what ever type container). Then after all swaps are done they each get to open to see what is inside. It is just a fun way for each to take something home.

Another thing is to buy the beads and stuff for them to make key chains and let them make those at the party.

I have 5 girls...all grown now...and they always had fun with stuff like this and so did their friends.

I know how it is...Well it depends on the theme of the party and how fancy the party is. One friend had a "fiesta" party basically a mexican theme and all the kids got to keep the sombreros....
If it's a sleep over you can do a nail polish kit.
or if it's a pool party...gogles and or picture frames that they can decorate there....
I'm full of ideas but I need more to go on.
If she's having a big to do....kind of a coming out party then that's a different ball game all together.

Is it all girls? How about a mini-manicure set? A bottle of the same color nail polish, a cute colorful emery board, a mini bottle of nail polish remover in a funky clear bag with some raffeta?

My two daughters are now grown. However, two favorites that seem to endure are movie passes and small gifts from a store such as The Body Shop or Bath and Body Works. These stores have many small items that teenagers love.

What types of things is your daughter in to? Is she a girly girl or more of a tomboy?

Anything from Safora or Bath & Body Works. Both have lip gloss, etc. designed especially for young teens and most are reasonably prices.

How about small (I don't think party favors should be the main cost of the party) bags with nail polish, lip gloss, small bottles of body spray. If all the invited girls have long hair; clips, bands or pony tail stuff. Ask your daughter, but give her a budget!

Bath and Body Works has travel size Shower Gels and lotions. They are alwaysa big hit. Just put in a favor bag. . . . and you are done! If you have a Bath and Body Works outlet near you, they are usually 5 for $5 there. Good Luck!

Nail polish, hair accessories, small versions of their favorite cosmetics (think travel size). Maybe a personalized t-shirt for the occasion, for each girl? You could do this yourself with the help of your local craft store. Maybe disposable cameras so that they can take all the pics they want and your daughter will surely have plenty of saved memories. You can even add in cute little picture frames, so each girl can frame her favorite moment. And just an odd idea - you can go to the M&M's web site and order personalized ones, with color and message. Maybe you could set out a bowl of those, or put them in little baggies to give out.

M.,

A great favor for this age is a gift card for Starbucks. You can tie a cute ribbon around it. You can do a $5 or $10 amount or more.
If you want to spend a bit, a manicure for around $13 each is an idea.
Teen girls like things that they can use to pamper themselves.
Take Care,
