Favorite things party: Christmas gifts on a table

These are a few of our favorite things: parties that warm cold winter nights, receiving adorable digital invites, gift swaps so fun you can hardly believe you’re leaving with something you’d want to receive!

The only place you can find all three of these things is at a favorite things party. A favorite things party is your answer to the white elephant party, which involves a lot of gag gifts that are good for a laugh but end up in the trash as soon as the party is over.
