    Pam, amongst all the different custom imprinted party favors we do, beach towels is one of them. And we can imprint piano keys on them if you like since that seems something you are interested in. Just get in touch with Sayings For You, Inc. –

    A perfect favor that can be shared on social media and have legs well after your event are Photo Favors with Green Screen backgrounds- We can create a theme for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah and place your guests in exciting background scenes, just like the movies!!

    Stacey, where did you find the towels with the piano keys? TIA

    • Stacey says:

      Hi Pam – It was so long ago and the company doesn’t exist, but just google “Piano Key towels” and lots of great options come up. I hope that helps. Thanks!

    I’m not a Mitzvah mom but i work with 300 of you a year…. If you DON’T want a hooded sweatshirt…. here are some great items to think about…

    Sweatpants !!! Ppen bottoms with pockets for the boys and for the girls elastic so they can cut the bottoms and roll the waist!

    Fashion T shirts…. Super soft and light weight t shirts, or v necks or tank tops…. call and ask more !

    Reversible lax and basketball jerseys and athletic shirts who doesn’t want that “under armor” feel!

    Most important is the logo !! An ugly logo on anything is a waste of money…. Use Gotham and get original art.. something you’d buy your kid from Lesters, Dennys, Nordstrom, etc !!! Call Gotham and thanks Mitzvah Market for all the great advice you offer !!

    I just had my son’s bar mitzvah 2 weeks ago. He did not want to give out a clothing item, so we decided on “beats” like headphones. The kids all loved them and thought it was cool to get something different. We got ours from Gotham. They come with a bag to carry them in and everything was packaged in a box. All I needed to do was place a label on each box.

    • Howie Zwang says:

      Caryn, Thanks for once again using us (gotham t shirts). There are so many things we can do for bar and bat mitzvah favors but I have found that the kids still love hooded and zipper sweatshirts. We use brands that are super soft, light weight and fashion forward. When you add a logo to that that is NOT the typical design you will end up with a favor that becomes all the kids favorite!! I own gotham tshirts. my cell # is 516 669 1400 and I welcome new clients and love my existing ones like Caryn !!

    • lauren says:

      i cant find them
      and how much
      thanks so much

    Hi – As you probably know, sweatshirts are popular favors, but there are many other fun items to choose from that the kids really love. We can do wicking tees, shorts, jerzees and much more. Please give me a call at 800-987-8766 and I will be happy to help create the perfect favor for your son’s Bar Mitzvah!

    We gave out blankets for my son’s hockey themed Bar Mitzvah. I also love the idea of the PJ sweatpants.

  10. Alyson says:

    Beach towels always make a great favor! Especially for camp day or overnight! My daughter was just at Bat Mitzvah who gave out pinnies for favors. The girls can’t wait to wear them at camp!

  11. Amy says:

    My kids went to over 90 Bar Bat Mitzvahs during 7th grade. When that favor bag came home and a pair of PJs was inside, I was very excited. I knew it was one less thing I needed to shop for when it came time for sleepaway camp! The kids do love the sweatshirts, but how many do you need.

  12. Andrea says:

    I have two kids that have gone through the Bar Mitzvah circuit. My daughter received logo’d pajama pants and logo’d sweatpants that she loved. She once also got flip flops as a giveaway (we had to send in her shoe size with the response to that bar mitzvah…which was kind of fun because we had no idea why they asked for it).

  13. Lori says:

    A few years ago my daughter attended a basketball theme Bar Mitzvah party. The favor was a basketball with customized air brushed art on it. There was an airbrush station and she chose the artwork.

  14. Stacey says:

    My son’s Bar Mitzvah was a music themed party and each table was the name of a popular song. The favor was a CD with all 13 songs from each table and since it was June, we found a very cool beach towel with piano keys running down the side and gave that to our guests as well.
