A pamper party (or pampering party) is a female-oriented party where each guest receives beauty and massage treatments and generally spends time indulging and pampering themselves.[1]

Pamper parties are usually held in the hostess's home although they are sometimes offered by spas and salons. In the UK, a pamper party is a popular component of a hen party or hen weekend (this would be termed a bachelorette party in the US).

Pamper parties are usually considered to be a healthy indulgence so in addition to pampering treatments, the hostess usually provides healthy snacks, fruit juices and smoothies.

Children's Pamper Parties[edit]

Pamper Parties may also be organized as a variation to a girl's birthday party for slightly older children where the theme of the event seeks to mimic an adult pamper party in a safe environment such as a parents' home. These events combine elements of children's parties (such as party-bags) with elements of adult pamper parties (such as cosmetics and well-being) in a child-friendly manner with "pamper baskets" typically being given to younger guests.[2] It is common for these events to be combined with a sleepover, slumber party or pajama party. Similarly this is a form is "rite of passage" from childhood to adulthood.
