Gifting Made Easy: 4 Tips On How To Choose The Right Momento For Any Occassion

Gifting for any occassion

Choosing the perfect party favor for a special occasion can be an exciting task . . . or not! Though there's a lot to consider from budget to integrity, giving guests a keepsake to remember is a great way to show gratitude. Here are four ideas Me To You Box considers when choosing the right momento for an event:

1 - The Geographical Location
From quintessential towns to vivacious cities, there are a variety of special places to host an occasion. Choosing a gift box to highlight your geographical location is a great way to create a memorable take-a-way for your guests. The box curated below was for a management meeting in New York City, featuring all things NYC, of course: MEO charger decals featuring the Brooklyn Bridge, a custom designed needlepoint yellow taxi key fob by Harding Lane, a Hamico toothbrush design by a NYC artist, and Dylan's Chocolates showing off some NYC icons.

Corporate themed gifts

2 - The Guests 
Considering who will be attending your event can make curating a unique gift that much easier. For instance, if it is a kids' pool party your favors most probably would be different then if it were a destination wedding. The gift box below was curated for male executive producers working on a documentary for HBO. Included were some fabulous contemporary guy brands: Bedford & Broome pocket square, Super Coffee's Vanilla Super Espresso, Italian brand toiletry samples from Marvis and Proraso, Modern Made Man's picasso frosted stone bracelet, and stain remover by Frey.

3 - The Party Theme
If your gathering has a unique theme, picking a party favor can be enjoyable and so simple. From Mardi Gras to a cookie swap, the possibilities are truly endless. This gift was given to guests who attended a "glamping" birthday party. A beautiful cozy blanketand a decadent s'mores chocolate bar by Lolli & Pops made these camping keepsakes a little more 'glam'.

4 - The Venue Itself 
How about highlighting the place where the special event is taking place as well as the guest(s) of honor! Finding a gift(s) specific to the venue can make the box feel thoughtful and custom. This hotel turn down gift was curated for wedding guests to receive upon their arrival to the venue. Homemade granola from Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a custom pouch holding packets of Advil and a Rally Patch, stainless steel straws by Bennkai, Boxed Water Is Better and a bottle of limoncello.
