It has been said that 60 is the new 50. When throwing a 60th birthday party, be sure to include some great favors. Here are some of our top picks:
60th Party Favors Photo Mint Tins – This is a wonderful favor because it is unique and personal. Many hosts choose to use an old photo of the guest of honor from the baby or teen years. While others used an updated photo with a unique pose. My friend Joan recently threw a 60th birthday party and ordered tins with a recent photo of her mom on a carousel. While another friend used a old graduation photo for the tin. This favor is guaranteed to be a huge hit.
60th Birthday Cookies – This is a nice favor for both men and woman because it is sweet and delicious. You can either make your own cookies with a good sugar cookie recipe like this one: Sugar Cookies Recipe. Although the recipe is designed to make Christmas cookies, it would also be great for any decorated cookie. I am not a fan of Crisco as part of the the frosting, so I would go with this icing recipe. Its base is butter and confectioner’s sugar with a touch of milk. I have tried this recipe and it is quite delicious.
60th Birthday Favors Glassware – Personalized favors are great, especially keepsakes like this custom shot glass/candle holder. Many 60th birthday party hosts remove the candle and fill the glass with colorful candies. Guests generally use them to store small personal objects like push pins, paper clips or jewelry.
