Party favors for your class reunion is one less thing you have to worry about. We have some wonderful ideas that are creative, fun, sentimental, and also useful!
“Don’t be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.”
― Richard Bach
Planning a class reunion requires a lot of time, resourcefulness, and patience. It’s not easy to track down an entire batch (even with social networking being so popular), get in touch with them, inform them about the event, and collate their RSVPs. And this is just one aspect of the party. There are so many other things that go into planning a reunion. But favors is not something you should worry about. For here at Buzzle, we take the onus of giving you some great ideas that you can use for favors at your class reunion.
Not many people enjoy looking at their yearbook picture. However, nothing really captures the essence of a reunion better than it. Have everyone’s yearbook picture framed, and give it to them as they leave the party.

Have the emblem and year of passing printed and pasted on tiny mint tins. They look adorable and make for great party favors.
Key Rings with Quote
Find a quote that truly describes your class. Have this quote printed or engraved onto key rings as favors. For best results, use a short quote.
Then and Now Polaroids
Here’s something that will make everyone have a good laugh at themselves. Have their graduation day picture stuck on one Polaroid. At the party, take another picture of them. Have these both placed in a holder, and hand them out as they leave.
Have a photograph of your school building pasted onto coasters and hand them out as favors. This way, every time an ex-student enjoys a cup of coffee, they’ll enjoy a bit of nostalgia too.
Music of the Year
Make a list of about 10 to 15 songs that were extremely popular the year your class passed out. Make a mixed CD of these songs, and hand them out as favors.
If your school already has its own stationery, then you can buy some and give them away as favors. If not, get your school’s name and emblem printed/engraved/embossed on items like pencils, notepads, and other things that are likely to be used daily.
Remember those funky badges that everyone kept pinning to their backpacks and jackets? Take a cue, and have your school’s emblem printed on mini badges. Hand one out to everyone as they leave.
Have the emblem of your school printed on plain bookmarks. This is not only a memory that everyone will cherish, but also a utilitarian favor.
Remember, all these ideas require you to begin planning way in advance. So, make sure you have enough time to put together some fun, yet sentimental favors.
