Party bags have become an essential aspect of children’s parties – and is often what little guests look forward to when the celebrations have come to an end. If you’re planning a birthday bash for your child in the coming weeks or months, you may be considering creating your own party bags for their special friends – and the good news is, that it doesn’t have to break the bank.

So, what do you include in children’s party bags? Here is a list of some unique ideas that you may like to take into consideration:

 1. Bubble blowers

All kids love bubbles and a bubble blower would be the perfect addition to any party bag. They can, however, be very messy – so it would be wise to purchase bubble blowers for children over the age of 4. It would also be wise to choose a bubble blower that doesn’t stain if the liquid got onto any clothing. In most cases, the liquid is extremely easy to wash out, but it would always be best to check labels beforehand to be sure.

2. Sweets

When you’re a kid, nothing beats sweets. You’ll likely need a wide selection of sweets both for the party and for party bags, therefore, it would be best to buy tubs of sweets in a bulk order. Avoid buying hard-boiled sweets for very young children as this could pose as a choking hazard. There are, however, many different types of sweets to consider that would be suitable, including the likes of:

·         Marshmallows

·         Sherbet and popping candy

·         Foam sweets

·         Jelly sweets

·         Gummy sweets

·         Chewy sweets

However, if you simply haven’t got the time to sort out an entire range of sweets for party bags, there is the option of purchasing mini pre-packed bags such as Haribo.

It would be wise to check for allergies and dietary requirements of all of the guests before stocking up on sweet treats. If you discover that any RSVP’d child does have requirements, you can browse our selection of dietary sweets and chocolate.

3. A themed item

If your kid’s party has a specific theme, it would be a fun idea to include a matching themed item within the party bag. If, for example, you’re hosting a princess-themed birthday bash, it would be a nice idea to include plastic tiaras or wands, while colourful eye masks would be perfect for superhero parties. Not only will it give them something to remember by when the party has come to an end but can also be enjoyed once they get home. 

4. Bangles and hair scrunchies

If the guests are predominantly girls, why not include hair scrunchies and bangles into the party bags? These types of gifts can be worn every single day and are sure to bring smiles to their faces.
