I am planning a surprise birthday party for the hubby and am thinking of party favors. Question is, do I need to give everyone individual party favors or couples get one, and singles get one?

Thanks,

D

I just found this info and hopefully it helps. Personally I would give a party favor to each guest.



"Party Favor Etiquette: The Do’s and Don’ts"



When deciding on the type of party favors to choose from weather it's for a wedding, birthday or baby shower, it is very important that you consider the theme of your event, the number of guests you are inviting, the diversity of the crowd, cost effectiveness, etc. All of these factors should influence your decision on choosing the perfect favors and how to present them. Although there are many non-traditional ways that are acceptable concerning party planning etiquette, there are some do’s and don’ts that you must take into account when dealing with party favors. Below you will find a reasonable list of protocol as it relates to choosing and presenting gift favors.



Do’s
Do coordinate your favors with the overall theme of your event or
party.
Do set a budget for your party favors and stick as best you can.
Do provide a favor for every single guest.
Do incorporate the favors into your party decorating if possible.
Do order a few extra emergency favors just in case some get damaged
during preparation for the wedding.(Or you have some party crashers)
Do choose a party favor that is unisex.
Do plan ahead on how you will present these unique favors to your
guests.
Do select a favor that you yourself would enjoy receiving.
Do select a favor that is special and that reflects the appreciation
you have for your guests.

Don’ts
Don’t choose a favor that goes against the theme of your special
event.
Don’t be afraid to choose a less expensive favor if the one that you
really wanted is too expensive for your budget.
Don’t give a favor for each couple to share. (Tacky)
Don’t choose a party favor that will clash with your unique party
deacutecor.
Don’t order just enough favors for each invited guest.
Don’t give a favor to a guest if it is damaged in any way or dirty.
Don’t choose a favor that is gender specific. (Unless it's a Princes
Party!)
Don’t forget to designate a special place to set your party favors so
that your guests will be sure to receive them.
Don’t give your guests a favor that you would not like to receive.



Have Fun!!

I'd think along the lines of a good quality mini flashlight or some other tool, like an all in one screwdriver maybe, for the men and the women will be easy.
Or you could just give everyone a bottle of wine.
