Favorite Things Gift Exchange Party

What is a Favorite Things Gift Exchange Party? The idea is simple: invite a group of your favorite friends and ask them to bring 3 items that they absolutely love! These items could be kitchen gadgets, beauty products, a craft supply or even something handmade. Each guest will tell the group what they love about the item, and then draw names to see who gets to keep it! So, each person arrives with three of their favorite things and leaves with 3 new things. PLUS after hearing everyone’s favorite things they will leave the party with lots of new ideas to try! Fun right?!

  1. Are all of the documents editable? We want to do this for a church function but only want each lady to bring 1 item instead of 3 to make it more affordable. Thanks!

    1. What a fun activity for a church activity! The pack includes 2 options for invitations. One is pre-filled out and one is blank so you can write in or use a photoshop-type application to add your own price point and item quantity. I hope that helps! Enjoy!

    1. Great question. This is a printable download so you can print as many as you want. This invitation is a cute card with a pocket. There are two cards per page and then there are 4 inserts on a page. I hope that helps!

  2. How do you guarantee that everyone leaves with 3 new things? Isn’t there a chance that they may end up drawing their own name twice towards the end?
    Is it better with odd number or even number of guests?

    1. These are all really great questions. If each person brings three things to share, there should be an exact number of gifts to receive. When the names are drawn everyone just checks to make sure that 1. they don’t have their own name and 2. that they don’t have any duplicates. If they have either of these, they simply switch names with someone else. It is very important to peek at the names you draw BEFORE gifts start being given out for the reason that you mentioned.
      As far as odd or even number of guests – it doesn’t matter or affect the outcome.
      I hope you have a fabulous party!
