Birthday Punch Box

Put away that stick, because pinatas as we know them are a thing of the past. There's a new product that's replacing the classic candy-stuffed container, and it's great for kids and adults alike--the Punch Box.

So, what exactly is a Punch Box? These pre-made boxes can be purchased online for around $25 and used multiple times. The punch box is made up of 20 smaller compartments (4 by 5), perfectly sized to fill with small gifts or goody bag items.

Once the compartments are loaded with your party favors, drop the lid of the box down. The lid has paper-covered holes that line up with each prize compartment. The objective is for your party guests to randomly pick a hole, punch through the tissue paper and grab their prize from the chosen compartment.

For a child's party, you can fill the box with items like bubbles, candy or small toys. For an adult party, add items like mini liquor bottles, money or indulgent snacks like chocolate-covered espresso beans.
