Prom is supposed to be the most magical night of any teenager's life. Everything -- from the dress or tux to the decorations and handouts -- has to be perfect. So if you're in charge of choosing the prom night giveaways for your school, you're likely starting to feel the pressure. How will you choose the perfect prom handouts for the big event?
To help make the decision process a little easier, we've constructed this guide. Follow Motivators' prom handout buying guide and the big party will be a guaranteed hit.How much do you want to spend?
First and foremost it is imperative that you come up with a budget. Every school will have a different spending limit, so meet with the PTA, student council, and school board to come up with an appropriate number. If you haven't got enough funds to throw the kind of party you were hoping for, think about launching a prom fundraiser. The kids will have a great time earning money for their prom, and it's the perfect way to get everyone involved.
Once you've figured out how much you can spend, the fun can finally begin! To weed out products that are not within your price range, try filtering items by price. You'll find there is a wide variety of giveaways at many different price points, so whether you're looking for a prom handout that's under $1 or more than $20, you'll find it with ease. If you're celebrating a smaller class' graduation, feel free to spend a little more on their giveaways.
For those with particularly tight resources, items like silicone bracelets, lollipops and picture frames are available at unbelievable prices. These fun products can be purchased for under $1 -- who says prom has to cost you an arm and a leg?Have you chosen a theme?
The best prom nights have a focused theme. If you're thinking about choosing a theme or have already selected one, have you considered distributing handouts that match it? Let's take a look at some more popular themes and which giveaways would work well:

If you'll have a professional photographer on-hand to capture moments throughout the night, there are a few ways you can use this to your advantage. For example, ask the photographer to shoot each couple's entrance. Then, while the kids are having fun, print their photos and place them into imprinted picture frames. At the end of the night, you'll have the perfect party favor to hand out to each guest.
Another great idea, if you've got the budget, is to create each guest a custom album filled with all of the photographer's best shots from prom night. The kids will cherish your gift for the rest of the lives and will never forget prom! Motivators has the best promo photo albums to help everyone commemorate the big night.
