Party favors are a way to say "thank you" to the guests who come to your party. Since bachelorette parties can run the gamut from a night out at the bar with friends to a weekend spa getaway, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to deciding which favors to offer. In fact, sometimes guests won't expect favors at all.
Match the Favor to the Occasion
The person throwing the party -- often the best friend of the bride-to-be -- should be responsible for getting party favors, though the bride-to-be may offer to pitch in. Try to match the party favors with the type of party you're throwing. For example, penis-themed items like straws or shot glasses might fit well if you're holding the party at the local bar, or having a rowdy party at home with a male stripper, but would seem inappropriate for a cocktail party. If your party is more sophisticated, look for more appropriate favors, like personalized wine, fashionable scarves or fancy chocolates. A donation to a favorite charity in the name of the guests might also be appropriate.
