Best personalized party bags for a child’s birthday

A favourite and treasured gift is usually one that shows that the giver has put thought and effort into it. Most party gifts given to guests at the end of a birthday party are fun but throwaway items. The emphasis seems to be on the amount of ‘stuff’ in the party goodie bags rather than the quality. 

Personalised party favours are an excellent idea for party bag gifts and they needn’t be too expensive. Focus on one or two useful and thoughtful party favours, one being a little bit special, a slice of cake and a balloon and you have the perfect party gift bags for your guests to enjoy.

Get the personalization right first time – a few tips!

  • If you are personalising pre-made party bags, stickers or children’s favours for your guests, then do a little research to make sure that no-one is sad when their name is spelt wrong or they don’t have a gift
  • If you’re inviting your child’s school friends, ask the teacher to double check the names on the class list are correct and use that
  • Put a little note at the bottom of the invitation for the parent with your email asking them to check their child’s name spelling and let you know if there is a mistake 
  • Invite early so there is time to get replies in, buy goody bags and request your personalisation. If you’re not sure if a child is coming, order anyway and use the gift as their birthday present if they don’t come. 
  • Check and double check when you order. Don’t do it under the influence of wine. Get your partner or a friend to sit with you while you do it.
