When you’re celebrating your child’s birthday, you want to go all out. You want their birthdays to be memorable and create a spectacle to wow your little one. If you’re inviting your kid’s friends to partake in themed games, birthday cake and presents, you should make sure that you have party hats on hand. Not only do party hats make the celebration feel more formal and exciting, they look super cute in photos. The best birthday party hats are vibrant, unique and comfortable. They can be little conversation pieces between the kids, as they compare and contrast the hats they’re wearing. They can also be taken home by the party attendees, which is also fun for them to have a souvenir from the celebration.
We rounded up some hats that we think fit the bill. Two of our picks include hat sets while one is a special hat for the birthday girl. The hat sets do require some assembly, but you should be able to set them up within minutes. There’s variation in each hat set, so there aren’t 12 identical hats.

1. Beurio Kids Happy Birthday Paper Party Cone Hats
Every birthday party attendee will have a unique hat, so you won’t hear any complaints about duplicates. The set comes with six pink paper hats and six blue paper hats, which all have different designs. You do have to put the pom-poms on the hats, but you can easily glue those with the included glue dots. This coordinated set will look super cute in photos.
2. 20 Pieces Rainbow Birthday Party Hats
You won’t lose track of these rainbow-colored party hats. With this set, you get 20 party hats. They end with four different colors on the tips: Light blue, pink, red and green. They are delivered flat, so you’ll have to wrap the fan-shaped hat into a cone before passing them out to partygoers. In addition to the hats, you’ll get a bright birthday banner that mirrors the colors on the hats.
3. Baby Princess Tiara Crown
This crown is meant for the little birthday diva in your life. If your kid treats their birthday as if it’s a national holiday (or you do), you should check out this super sparkly pick.

There are seven different options, so you can get a crown to celebrate your child’s first half birthday all the way to their sixth.
