As I mentioned last week, I’ve recently received several requests for party favor donations. Of course I can’t provide free products to everyone who asks, but I find it difficult to select just one recipient. How would I choose? It’s impossible to do it fairly unless everyone has a chance and the selection is random. That’s why I decided it was time to offer a Party Favor Giveaway.

If you:
1. are planning a party in April or May
2. live in the U.S. (or can have items shipped to a U.S. address)
3. are at least 18 years old, and
4. are willing to share your party details with my blog readers, Twitter followers, and Facebook friends…I’d love to create your party favors!

What type of party? Any kind! I’ve made thousands of favors for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, baby showers, girls’ nights out, even divorce parties and so many other events!

What type of favor? For this giveaway, I’m offering lip balm in your choice of jars, tubes, or tins.

What type of design, decoration, or flavor? Here’s the fun part: I will work with the winner to create favors that fit with your party theme. You will get to choose the design, flavor, colors, and embellishments I use to put together your favors. Every one of my party favors customers goes through this same process, but this time I’ll be sharing the process with Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and blog readers through regular posts (so make sure you don’t mind having us all discuss your party details in public).

Don’t worry: even though I’m hoping that our readers will share their opinions as we work on your project, the final choices about the favors will be yours!

How many favors? I’m excited to donate a set of 20 personalized favors. (Lip balm favors with custom labels and tags, wrapped in clear bags with bows usually retail for $75.00, so this is the biggest giveaway I’ve ever done!) Of course you may choose to have only custom tags or labels—it’s up to you!

How do you enter? Simple! Visit one of our party pages (see the links above) at or check out some of my party favor designs and think about what type of party favors you’d like. Leave a comment below sharing the flavor, design, or theme you liked from the site. If you prefer, you could also tell us what type of party you’re planning for this spring along with any of the theme or color ideas you’ve already come up with! (If you don’t have a party planned yet, that’s okay! We’re sure you can come up with something!) Make sure you leave an email or name in your comment so I know who you are.

For extra entries, you can:
follow GCDSpa on Twitter
– tweet about the giveaway (only once per day, please)
– join our mailing list
– “like” our Facebook page

Please make sure you add a separate comment for each of these entries. We’ll be selecting a winner at noon on Tuesday, March 15, and then the fun begins!! So make sure to visit the site and leave your comment below!

Thanks so much for your interest!
