I recently came across a great site that's easy to create customized gifts and favors. And I emphasize the word "easy". The Party Beans customizer is so simple that even my Mom could use it (sorry, Mom). I quickly and easily customized my own stocking stuffers for the immediate family.
Let me show you how easy it is to make your own customized favors:
First you pick your product. I chose the round tin.
Choose the quantity. Here's one of the things I really love about Party Beans — no minimum order! You can order as few or as many as you want. There's a nice gradual discount the more you buy, but if you only want 1… you order one! So many companies like this have a minumum order. So Party Beans get a huge PLUS from me for this feature!
Goodies time! You can choose to leave your tins empty, or fill them with Mints, M&Ms, Jelly Belly, or Chocolate Lentils. I opted for the M&Ms.
Choose your background. You have lots of options to choose from. You can pick something that will fit your appropriate theme. There's wedding favors, baby shower favors, to birthday themed favors to solid color backgrounds to fit any occasion.
The next step is putting your image on. They have a nice selection of clipart you can use, or like me, you can upload your own image. I chose a picture of my son that looked appropriate for what I wanted. As usual I had a difficult time choosing one, since I think he looks adorable in all his pictures. But I digress…
The final step to customizing your own favors is to apply text, if you want it. I chose to write Merry Christmas on mine, since it went with the theme of stocking stuffers I had planned.
That's it! Your ready to checkout. I was just a little surprised at how quick and easy the whole process was… in approximately 20 minutes, from start to finish, I was done. And at least half that time was spent on deciding (and changing my mind) on the picture I wanted to use.
I'm very happy with the final product. I also want to mention how easy it is to open and close the tins. It's so simple yet, really cool. You'll see what I mean when you try them out for yourself.
Since I didn't have any upcoming parties planned I couldn't use any party favors, but most definitely will be going to Party Beans for all my party favors from now on.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
