DIY Lake Day Party Favors

Did you see our post last month about hosting the perfect lake-day party?! Well, if you missed it, check it out here. We wanted to give you a closer look at the party favors we put together. They are inexpensive, useful, and CUTE. We guarantee that your guests will be loving and using them all summer long.

Our favorite kind of party favors are the ones that people will actually use. There is nothing worse than a throw-away favor that no one even cares about.

When spending a day on the lake, there are a few essential items that everyone should have with them. People also usually forget to bring them themselves, making it the perfect party favor. Think of it as a “lake day party survival kit”.

Here is what we put inside:

Mosquito repellent and sunscreen are a MUST, mainly for comfort reasons. Ain’t nobody got time to be burnt or itchy. We also put in a first aid kit and tissues because you just never know. Plus, we like to be prepared.

Chapstick is also necessary, especially when you are going to be outside all day. And finally, because we were also boating, we threw in some dramamine for our sea-sick friends.

All of our items are travel size and can be found in more stores. We also threw in some small snacks and treats like granola bars, dried fruit, fruit snacks, etc.

Now, any cute favor will come in a super cute bag, so we obviously had to do something. We went with a fanny pack so that our guests could be running around and still have everything they needed with them. We found these super ones on amazon, and they come in so many different colors!

They also had options to buy them in packs if you have a lot of people. It will definitely save you some money.

The other nice thing about the fanny pack is that it still left room for people to put their own essential items in, like their phone, wallet, keys, etc.

Yes, these favors might be extra. BUT, you will be awarded lake party host of the year and your friends will love you. Plus, everyone will look bomb with the matching fanny packs. These favors could also be used for a camping party, hiking, or any outdoor theme.

Don’t forget to make one for yourself!

Stay safe, non-sun burnt, bug-bite free.
