You will want to make people feel like they are in the 90s at your party, so you will need party decorations and props from the 90s scattered around the room. 90s Photo Prop Kits are always a great option. Another good party favor are 90s Buttons for people to wear at the party.
Other good party favors would be candy popular from the 90s (Airheads, Gummis, Warheads, etc..). You can find these at the Old Time Candy Company. Or you could always go with the World's Largest Gummy Bear.
