Give the Gift of Liquor for Father’s Day

by

It’s that time of year again… time to raise a glass to dear old Dad.  Nothing says “thanks for a lifetime of love” like a stiff drink.  Today we’re showing you two fun ways to gift Dad the ever popular gift of booze.  So remember, a brown paper bag is not a sufficient form of gift wrap.  You can do better; much better this Father’s Day.

If your Dad is a cigar man, don’t leave out this important accoutrement.  A quick trip to the craft store and an extra five minutes will score you major bonus points with this gift wrap idea.  Test tubes can typically be found at your local craft store for a few bucks or less.  Funny labels will steal the show and put a smile on your Dad’s face.  This awesome Papasaurus cigar band can be found here, and the bottle label here.  Add a spool of grosgrain ribbon, in the manliest shade available, to tie it all together and call it a day.

Custom Father's Day Labels

 

Then, if Dad is not a smoker, we’ve got other fun ways to use those cigar labels.   In place of the stogies use Twix bars or chocolate covered pretzels.  An empty cigar box makes for a sturdy and reusable gift box.  Another round of fitting cigar labels and a funny liquor label and Dad’s day is done!

Next up is for the Dad with a sweet tooth.  Try our Stache label (buy it here) and a jar of his favorite sweets.

And just because we like to go the extra mile, here’s some random Father’s Day trivia for you.  So, take a sip and talk amongst yourselves.

  • Father’s Day is celebrated in over 50 countries around the globe.
  • It wasn’t a national holiday until 1972.
  • There are 2 million single dads and more than 200,000 stay at home Dad’s.
  • The amount of time Dad’s spend with their kids has tripled since 1965
  • About 1 in 3 children live in a home without a Dad – that’s right.  So if you’re reading this, it’s likely because your Dad was great and he deserves an equally great day.  Don’t forget to top off your drinks with a huge Father’s Day hug.

Love you, Dad.

Oh So Fancy! Dress up that Bubbly!

by

You don’t need an excuse to drink champagne, but no celebration is complete without a bit of bubbly!  Once you hear the cork pop, the party has officially started!  But sometimes a plain bottle of bubbles isn’t quite enough.  Sometimes we need a little extra bling to match the mood.  Here are some fun and simple ways you can dress up a simple bottle of champagne, to make it as fancy as the guests at your event.

First we have a pretty in pink champagne.  These mini split bottles can be used as at the beverage bar or the favor table.  A lovely bow and this custom label give champagne all the personality it needs to stand apart from those other boring beverages.

Next, we ditched the bow tie and swapped it out for a simple glittery ribbon and cute paper straw.  This custom label fits the beauty bill, and the straw does all the dirty work- without messing up your lipstick!

If that last option didn’t have enough sparkle, then this is the fancy bottle for you!  A bit of glue and glitter will give all the shimmer and pop you need at your beverage bar.  You can use a foam brush and liquid glue if you want your custom label to show, or use spray adhesive to cover the entire base of the bottle quickly.  There is a fantastic tutorial here.  Another option is to paint your bottle first and then just add glitter to the neck and pair with a pretty label like the one seen here.  The image uses a wine bottle, but this could easily translate to a champagne bottle.

 

If all the glitter has you feeling too girly, here’s a fun fact to make it masculine: James Bond is a notable Champagne drinker, who has been spotted drinking Champagne more than 35 times in his films. At least he drinks it more than any other beverage!  So man up, buttercup and fill that champagne flute to the tippy top.

Donut Mind if I Do

by

It’s here!  The holiday you’ve been waiting for: National Donut Day!  These round sweeties aren’t limited to breakfast anymore, in fact they’re the star of the show! So we’re celebrating our love of donuts with our favorite ways to package them for your guests.  The key to a beautifully packaged sweet is making sure your eyes are as happy as your taste buds.  That means simple wrapping, a ribbon and a custom label will be all you need to get the job done!

First up, we have this adorable DIY donut box.  Made from a fairly simple template like the one found here.  This box takes a bit of time,  but makes up for it with impact.  Add a custom label, like this one, and you have a perfectly precious party favor!

In this next favor, we used a similar donut label, but drastically simplified the packaging.  A basic glassine pastry bag isn’t only easy on your DIY skills, it’s also easy on the wallet.  At about $2 for 25 bags (find them here for  your next event) the price is hard to beat!

If you want to make it even easier, you can purchase these party sacks here in the same purchase as your favor labels.  Add a little shredded filler, bakers twine and this hang tag (more colors available in store) for your label and a few donuts on top and you’re good to go!

In this set-up we swapped the circle label and bag for a milk jar wrapped in a water bottle label (which fits perfectly!) and simple straw flag.  This is my kind of grab-and-go snack!  Find these water labels here to complete your next sweets festivity.  Don’t forget the paper straws!Milk and Donut Favor

If you don’t want your beautiful sweets hiding in a bag or box, this is a great option: a cellophane bag with a ribbon and pretty label.

Lastly, you happen to run out of donuts all together, this unique favor will send your guests away ready to sprinkle their next sweet endeavor with fun.

Hops for Pops

by

Nothing says fathers day like seeing Dad kick his feet up with a nice cold brew in hand… hops for pops!  Dad’s are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, so we’re here to take some of the guess work out of it for you.  We can promise he doesn’t want a tie or a book of coupons, no matter how trendy or sweet.  He doesn’t want a “World’s Best Grandad” shirt from his daughter still in high school.  He doesn’t want a mug shaped like a toilet or a visor with fake hair attached.  What he does want, however, is that good ‘ole standby gift that never fails: cold, hoppy, refreshing beer.  Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, just get him what you know he likes: his favorite brew with a little extra something, like a custom label to show the love.  These custom labels can be purchased here and offer a 48 hour turn-around time, so Dad can sip in style!

So make sure your Dad has a fully balanced diet this year: a drink in BOTH hands.

by

Turning 30? Don’t panic! Some of the most famous scientists, business men and women and political figures made the biggest waves in their 30s. More important then your impending life of success however is the fact that this important milestone is the perfect reason to host a party. And it’s just good manners to thank your guests for spending time with you to celebrate, but the kiddy loot bags won’t cut it for your crowd. Read on for some appropriate (and awesome!) ideas for grown up party favors for your 30th birthday:

Chocolate Liqueurs

These chocolate-infused liqueurs that you typically only find in your granny’s cabinet from 1993 can be a great party favor for adults. Send your guests home with personalized chocolates to give these easy favors an adorable upgrade.

“Hot Candies”

Thirty doesn’t mean you have to grow up and candies are a safe bet for birthday party favors no matter the age–especially with a grown up twist. Hand out cinnamon flavored candies with a “30 and Hot” label to give your guests a laugh.

Not down with a formal “loot bag”? Set up a sweets table by the door filled with 30 themed treats and kiss your 20s goodbye! Tag ’em with initialed labels, a big 3-0, or other special notes.

 

Create a Hangover Kit

If drinks are to be had at your 30th birthday party, your guests will appreciate a hangover kit for the next morning. Buy travel-sized bottles of Advil, water bottles, snacks, and hand them out in cute kraft paper bags.

Custom Wine Glasses

If you’re feeling a little crafty, give out wine glasses to your party guests with their own name lettered on them! Choose colors to match your party theme and even a hashtag to use for party photos. Every time your friends pull out the glass for a sip of wine, they’ll be reminded of the good times at your party. They’ll also be great conversation starters!

S’mores Kit

Just because the kids weren’t invited to the party, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the treats. Adults with children often give their edible party loot bags directly to their kids, so why not give out party favors for that particular purpose? These s’mores kits are adorable for summer bonfires with the family or a BBQ-themed 30th!

Plants & Flowers

Turning 30 doesn’t exactly mean you’re over-the-hill, but it’s definitely a time in your life when growing plants and flowers is a totally acceptable thing to do. Give your guests a gift that keeps on giving (unless they forget to water it, of course). Totally eco-friendly, too!

Spa in a Jar

Gifts in a jar are all the rage right now. They’re fun to put together, customizable, and are a great way to use up those empty pasta sauce jars! These party favors are perfect for a 30th birthday party for ladies or even a bachelorette. You can customize the colors to fit the theme of your party, or even add a mini adult beverage to the gift to make it a little more grown up.

Coffee

Coffee is another favorite beverage among adults and a crowd pleasing party favor. Whether you send your guests home with coffee beans or grounds in a bag with a custom label, or even a mug, every cup of joe will flood back memories from your party.
