The first thing you might want to consider is the actual party bag itself. Some people choose themed bags to tie in with the rest of the party. This might be Disney Princess, Pirates, Hello Kitty or Spiderman for example.
You might instead prefer a more traditional gift bag which can be used for any theme, and be unisex too. Whichever you prefer, we have all the options of party bags available to buy at The Costume Party Shop.
Next comes the fun part – choosing what to put inside the party bags! At this point you need to consider your budget per bag, the ages of the child, and whether you wish to create unisex party bags, or different ones for boys and girls.
So lets start with budget. You do not have to spend a fortune to make a lovely going home gift for a child. After all, it is not their party! We have many items which are always popular, and cost under $1 per item. Examples include a packet of modelling clay, small colouring books, a pack of crayons, or a small plastic toy.
Next, you need to consider the age of each child. You might need to make party bags for those under 3 years. These need special attention since there are items which are clearly marked as suitable for babies. Some of our favourites here include bath toys and teethers.
For older children, the choices are vast – you should really come in store the view the full range. It is constantly changing and updating as new products come into the market.
If you wish to choose items specifically for boys and girls, then perhaps consider these. Boys love all things slimey and all things magnetic, whilst we find that girls prefer the craft items and anything which sparkles! The traditional wooden items are proving very popular as fillers for party bags at the moment too.
We are more than happy to help advise on the best items for your party bags and will help create them in accordance with your specifications. We can even make them up for you and deliver straight to your party! Contact us for more information. Remember we are open 7 days a week!
