Do I need to offer party bags?

Whether you do or do not provide party bags entirely depends on your personal preference. However, they are a great way to thank your guests for coming and to extend the joy of the celebration long after the party has ended. Over the past few decades, providing a small goody bag at the end of a kid's party has become customary, with many children expecting to receive a post-party treat once the celebrations are over. 

At what age do you stop giving goodie bags at parties?

Deciding when to stop giving goodie bags at parties is a difficult call. It varies based on personal preference and the type of event you’re having. Goodie bags are typically most popular for younger children’s parties up to around 10. However, if tailored to suit their interests, they could still make a fun addition for older kids and teenagers. You could consider alternatives such as personalised keepsakes or activity-based favours. Ultimately, the choice depends on the party theme, guest preferences and your discretion as the host. 

How many items do you put in a party bag?

Again, the quantity of items you add to each party bag is entirely up to you; you can add as many or as few as you like. However, 2-to-4 items are usually ideal, especially if you want to keep costs low (we know how pricey hosting a kid's party can be). Adding a couple of good quality toys or games alongside a bag of sweets or healthier snacks if you would prefer, and a slice of birthday cake is a great way to create a budget-friendly goodie bag for your young guests. 

What is normally in a party bag?

There are a wide variety of options when it comes to deciding what items to include in your party bags, but here are a few of the most common pieces unlikely to be discarded by the wayside once the cake and sweets have been devoured: 

Some of these items may be less suitable for younger children and infants, so always use your best judgement when picking fillers for party bags. It’s always a good idea to check with other parents to make sure none of the little ones in attendance have any specific allergies you need to be aware of, especially if you plan to include snacks in your goodie bags.
