    How do you know what sizes to get for sweatpants? Is sweatshirts easier?

    • Toni Caroto says:

      Hi Amy,

      Adult Small Sweatpants will fit the majority of 12/13 year old boys and girls and Adult Medium Sweatshirts should be good for them too. We always suggest you look in your son or daughters closet to get a sense of what size they like to wear and then go through your guest list with your child asking “Is this person smaller than you, larger than you, same size?” You may never satisfy 100% of the kids, but at least you can get close. If you want to chat about sizing or have any questions about sweatshirts or other favors, please feel free to email, call us or poke around on our website at – we’re happy to help!!!

    My son’s Bar Mitzvah theme was Ice Hockey. I got the kids squeeze ice pucks that cost about 1 – 2.00 each and the kids loved them! I also gave out customized chocolate bars that were very inexpensive as well. You can get the chocolate bars from Costco then get the custom wrappers to go around the bars. Super cute!

    My sons still love the drawstring bags. Sweatpants are always a favorite!

    My son got tons of sweatshirts and t-shirts, but the only thing he actually wore were the sweatpants he got. He still wears them now, over 2 years later!!

    My kids loved sweatpants and pinnies too. Another great idea is beach towels. It is also a good idea to combine an activity with your favor, for example airbrushing.
