As a party planner I love to give party favors. As a woman I love to give beauty favors when I am hosting or planning a 'girl' party such as a bridal shower or baby shower. And the guests are always so appreciative - it is something that they enjoy using and, perhaps most importantly, will use! (how many party favors are left at a party or discarded once brought home? More than you can imagine).
Body butter lotion favors are always a huge hit. Just the term 'butter' connotes rich, decadent moisturizing power. And what woman doesn't want to drench their skin in something like that?
However, keep these few things in mind when purchasing body butter favors:
It's all about the ingredients:
You want to ensure that the lotion favor you are giving your guests are made from natural and skin pampering ingredients - not chemicals or watered down. Look for an ingredient list and make sure the first ingredients listed are such things as shea butter, jojaba oil, almond oil, vegetal glycerin, and the like.
Choose a pleasing scent:
One of the major appeals of body butter is that it is usually nicely scented. So not only does it feel good to use it, but it leaves your skin softly fragrant. Try to choose a scent that would appeal to all your guests. This usually means a fresh scent such linen, zen tea, or ocean breeze. Or a light floral such as rose, jasmine or gardenia. Delicious smelling scents such as vanilla or pina colada are usually big hits too.
Personalized the gift, if possible:
Personalized labels on the lotion jars or containers are perfect. However, if that isn't an option you can put the favor in a small favor bag (organza is nice for this) and attached a homemade gift tag to it.
This is one favor that your guests will love to receive!
