Do you ever find yourself wondering what are some Awesome Party Gifts to bring to the gathering that aren’t a bottle of booze or food? Don’t get me wrong, those are great things to bring to a party, but depending on the audience (be it little kids, or straight edged coworkers) booze might not be the thing.
17 Awesome Party Gifts That’ll Bring Your Party To A Whole New Level
Food can be a good choice, but then again you have to worry about causing an allergic reaction to someone and ending the party right there. Fear not! We’ve put together a list of great party gifts that you can take with you to the next gathering, whether it be an adult occasion or something for the kids! We’ve split these gifts into two main categories – things that are appropriate for the youngsters, and more risqué party gifts.
Party Gifts for Kids and Adults
These gifts should be appropriate whether it’s for an 8-year-old’s birthday or for a bachelor party. Either way, they can be adapted to suit the needs of your particular group of revelers. Take a look and see what you like!
You all remember the old days when you would have to buy a full stereo system, microphone, and possibly specialty CD’s to get karaoke to happen on party night (or dare I say “karaoke night”) Well those days are long gone, because this microphone takes care of pretty much everything for you – all you have to do is connect it to your Bluetooth device (read: smartphone) and start the karaoke off right.
Now this is some good old school wholesome fun – it’s a ring toss game that is super simple and is therefore good for everyone from drunken adults to little kids who need to work on their hand eye coordination. There are four color rings, which will accommodate four players, but if you need to have room for more players it’s easy enough to create teams. Just toss the rings, how hard could it be, right?
What a cool dispenser. Whether it’s filled with rum and coke, or more likely punch for the kids, it’s a great way to keep the drinks cool and also allow the little munchkins to easily grab a cup and get a drink. You can even stack them! This is also great for kids’ parties because it lets you know when you’re going to need to refill the drinks well before the moment it happens.
As if the sound activated nature of these lights wasn’t enough, there’s a ton of different functions to give you a variety of different feels. Every party needs a good bit of crazy LED lighting to create the right atmosphere, and this is the perfect gadget to grab to make that happen. They’re prized right so it might even be worth grabbing two!
These flamingo pom poms and paper lanterns are really cool – and they could be great for a lady’s night or girls birthday party. They’ve got flamingos as a theme, but also there are pink globes and pom poms. Don’t worry though guys there are other themes to choose from, you haven’t been left out.
Whether it’s a 20’s themed party or a little kid get together and you need an easy way to pick out what team someone is on for capture the flag, these plastic gangster hats are a great choice. There’s 24 of them so there’s plenty of room for a couple getting destroyed or otherwise ruined during the course of partying.
Part of the fun of birthday parties was always team sports and games. It gives kids a chance to play around in a way that they may not get to on a day to day basis in school, and we all know how glued to screens everyone is these days. This game has two groups of kids work together to race across a field while… tied to each other! Good luck!
This billiard table is as close to a full-size billiard table as you are going to find! While it is slightly smaller than a professional one, 90 inches across is pretty large for both kids and adults who just want to mess around while drinking. And billiards can also help kids learn some hand eye coordination, so it’s really a win-win.
As long as you say from the start that there is no spinning, this foosball game should result in any fistfights. All jokes aside, foosball is a great game for both adult parties and kids to spend some time of the screen. It’s a classic that should never be forgotten!
Sometimes a bottle of booze just isn’t going to cut it. At best it won’t get drunken, and at worst it will make you look like the alcoholic of the group. That’s where these gifts come into play – you can bring something silly to the table that will get people moving and hopefully talking.
Since social media became a thing over a decade ago, pretty much everyone has become familiar with the term “meme” and how absolutely terrible some of them can be. Truly, there are some things you cannot unhear – so this game is best left for the adult’s night. There are 435 caption cards and 75 photo cards and between the two of them, you and your buddies will be able to create some pretty disturbing memes.
Many of us have had the problem when we’re about to start a night of binge drinking – everyone wants to play a different game. The ladies want to play flip cup because they suck at beer pong, the guys want to play quarters because it’s just so savage, and the one weirdo wants to play king’s cup but can’t remember the rules to share with everyone. Such is life – but it doesn’t have to be this way, you can get drink-a-palooza and play all your favorite drinking games, rules included.
In the simplest sense, this is not really a game – it’s more of a drinking application method. But you can definitely use your deep and profound creativity to figure out how to make this into an excellent and raunchy drinking game. You spin the arrow and whoever it lands on has to have a shot. Well, maybe they can decide between a shot or a kiss. That will get things started up pretty fast won’t it?
So, part of throwing a good party or barbeque is providing some great food to your guests, right? At the same time, you don’t want to let your nice party outfit get totally covered in grease and whatever else you’re cooking. In comes the raunchy party apron – it let’s everyone know you’re not out of the game just because you’re in the kitchen. The best part is this comes in a variety of different styles so you can choose which one fits your personality best.
These balloons are great for a negative Nancy or otherwise pessimistic and bitter adult. Like, whichever of your friends is a lawyer – this is a great gift for their birthday party. They’re nicely colored blow up balloons, but they’ve got very nasty messages on them – like “cool balloon…lame party” or “happy whatever day.” These might disturb the development of a kid so we recommend you keep them away from little Ralph’s birthday party.
Pool parties with alcoholic beverages are always a great idea, I mean seriously what could go wrong. But the downside here is that sometimes there’s just way too much booze getting spilled into the pool for anyone’s good. In come inflatable drink holders, so that everyone can take their beer or wine cooler into the pool (or better yet, hot tub) with them and keep the party alive.
These cups are an absolute essential for your next house party – they’ve got LED’s in the bottom that allow them to light up. What does this mean for you? It means you’ll never have to drunkenly search for the shot glasses ever again! They literally will light up and show you right where they are. This makes drinking a whole lot easier and nobody has to be a savage and drink from the bottle.
The that’s what she said party game is definitely for adults only. It’s got a bunch of hilarious innuendos that will heat the party up, and it’s a faced paced game that makes it much easier for everyone to just go ahead and start breaking the ice.
There it is! When it comes to planning for what you’ll bring to the next big event – whether it be a children’s birthday party or a super raunchy get together with the guys and gals, we’ve got you covered with this list of great party gift ideas. Just be sure to grab two of them so that you give people options, you wouldn’t want to leave anybody out of the fun!
