Snowman soup is a cute DIY Christmas favor to make for kids. Just add hot chocolate, peppermint, marshmallows and a cute Snowman Soup recipe poem. You could wrap a hot cocoa pouch in a personalized wrapper (don’t forget to attach the candy canes with tape), have it in a Ziploc bag with bag topper, assemble in glass jars like a mason jar, or place it inside a Styrofoam cup decorated to look like a snowman. Trust me, Snowman Soup makes for a great festive favor.


Christmas Tree Crayons

Melt crayon bits into Christmas tree-shaped molds or any other shape for a vibrant and unique party favor that’s perfect for little artists. Christmas trees are the perfect shape for this favor.


Christmas Party Cracker

How cute are these Christmas Cracker Popper favors. You can fill these with small gifts. Gift items can include tiny toys, wrapped candies, jewelry or cars and more. Best if done using your Cricut or Silhouette, but can also be done by hand using scissors. You could also attach gift tags to make it the perfect gift.


Candy Cane Reindeer

This fun and easy candy cane favor would be perfect, not only to gift, but to make as well. You don’t have to DIY this one alone, let the kids help make this Candy Cane Reindeer to gift to their classmates! And how cute are the googly eyes!


Snowman Bath Bombs

Transform bath time into a winter wonderland with DIY snowman bath bombs. Mix up your favorite bath bomb recipe, shape the mixture into cute snowmen, and let them dry. Package them in clear cellophane bags tied with festive ribbons, and you have a unique and delightful Christmas favor that adds a touch of magic to self-care.


Grinch Candy Favors

Using some fun green candy,  you can make The Grinch ornaments or go the more traditional route using party bags and cups. Either way, everyone will love to receive one of these three The Grinch gifts.


DIY Gingerbread Ornament Favor

Create a DIY ornament kit as an interactive favor. Print out multiple copies of this gingerbread ornament PDF file from Little Paper Raccoon, and include in a ziploc bag, along with crayons or paint, glue stick, string and instructions for kids to design their own ornament.


Personalized Christmas Puzzle

If you’re a sublimation crafter or have a Cricut, personalized puzzles would make for a great Christmas party favor. You can grab sublimation puzzle blanks here. If using a cricut, grab some sticker vinyl to print design on, adhere to kraft board and cut using a jigsaw design. You can grab this Christmas puzzle design from Sprinkle Pop Studios.


Santa’s Cookies

Printables make DIY’ing favors so much easier. You could grab this North Pole Christmas Milk and Cookies printable and attach your favorite cookies to pass out as favors.


Build Your Own Snowman

This interactive Build Your Own Snowman Christmas party favor idea can be offered in a food and non-food option. If doing food, grab some 3 marshmallows, froot by the foot and mini pretzel sticks and place inside a ziploc bag. Or if yu want a non-food option, grab this modeling clay kit and place inside a ziploc bag. Adhere this bag topper from KudzuMonster to make it festive.


Christmas Treats Chip Bags

Of course, I couldn’t leave off DIY Christmas chip bags. This is an elevated version of Christmas goodie bags. Instead of a plain treat bag or cellophane bag, print personalized chip bags instead. Chip bags make great party favors. Print borderless using Party Printables Paper and adhere with double sided tape or hot glue gun. You can fill with different things such as chip bags, hand sanitizer, lip balm, or small toys from Dollar Tree or candies. Don’t want to print, consider picking up mini stockings and stuff with treats instead. You can grab this editable design from CrazyLime. Want to make your own featuring Santa Claus or your own fun ideas, check out this video on how to design your own.
