Our class is having their 45th reunion this year. I took a paper lunch sack and made a sticker for the front of the bag that said: "I survived the EHS Class of '65 - 45th Reunion." I put the same sticker with information on a bottle of water, a package of Lifesavers, and a candy bar covered with a new cover regarding our reunion, and an ink pen.
I stapled the bag closed at the top and attached their name tag on it. I set the bags out on the table in no particular order and when they checked in they found their survival bag and met the folks at their table then could move to another table if the wished.

It's our 35th reunion of smalltown USA. The first night is at a local hotel/spa bar for meet and greet, where dinner is available. Also on the grounds is a local community fund raiser, that brings in lots of alumni. The second evening is in the city at a high end dance bar and lounge. I have everything together except for a memorial board and reunion gift bags. It has to be something nice, but not costly. We plan reunions like this to meet all budgets. There are no covered charges and classmates can spend what they can afford.

I would want a class photo, complete with all the names, in my gift bag. A pen and a nice note pad, or "autograph book" for addresses of old friends, would be great, also. And a small collectible, such as a coffee mug with a photo of the school on it.
Talk to photographers in your area and see if you can get a discount for a large order, in exchange for free advertising for them in all your reunion materials. You could also ask the local restaurants, etc., if they would give you discount coupons to put in the bags.
Where can I buy favors for a class reunion in amounts under 100? Every site I've found only offers them in lots of 100 or more. My class only has 20 people, so I don't need 100 of anything.

Best favor I got at a reunion was a badge with my high school picture on it. Someone had a "Badge a Minit" kit, made photocopies of our senior pictures from the yearbook and put them on the badge (don't know how). We wore the badges as name tags and then took them home for a souvenir. I still have mine and it's been about 20 years since that reunion!
I would like ideas for a 40th class reunion favor.
I went to my 50th reunion recently, someone had taken the class composite and made place mats for us. Sure got the conversation and memories flowing. Have a ball. Donna
I need ideas for party favors or gifts for our 35th Class Reunion. Preferably things that do not cost a lot.

Back then you guys played records. What about mini picture frames that run about 50 cents? Paint them black and go to michael's crafts store or a hobby shop and buy mini records to hot glue on them. Then on the bottom of the frame glue letters saying class of 1974 or whatever, or you could paint it your school colors. Just a thought.

Sounds like a great way to reconnect with your girlfriends. Since it is a slumber party, I would do gift bags of nail polish and face masks, since those activities were always popular at sleepovers. Don't forget to plan lots of games and activities around the slumber party theme.
Hope this helps,

I need ideas on inexpensive personalized party favors for our 20 year high school reunion in November. We have done mugs for our 10th year.

At my 20th, we all were given bead necklaces in our school colors. The men wore them too. They were given at every function. Kind of cool. Left overs can be given away for craft projects. Schools and Child care places are always looking for items for their crafts. (06/23/2005)
