Five of the Best Party Favours and Party Bag Ideas

Unique Party Bag Ideas

I’ve hunted high and low to bring you a selection of fun, exciting and quirky party bag ideas and favours. I think you’re going to have a hard time choosing which one to go for!

There’s something really exciting about party bags and favours for children and adults alike.  In contrast, some people are from the school of ‘whats wrong with a bit of cake and a balloon?’  But I love it!  I adore hunting for little bits and bobs that fit the party theme or even better, finding a single item that is both useful and fun!

Furthermore, I also love supporting small and local businesses. The chain stores and pound shops are great for a bargain. However it feels amazing to know that your purchase from a small business is going straight into paying for football or ballet lessons for someone’s child.  Also you get something unique, made with love and generally awesome!

Fabric Party Bags

Make it Friday believe in turning the bag into the gift, as opposed to the contents which are just an added bonus! It seems extravagant, but by the time you buy all of the plastic (argh not the p-word), would it not make more sense to buy a beautiful, reusable, personalised cotton bag? You can pop a slice of cake inside and the bag can be used for all sort of things at home.

Wendy and Emma can create bespoke bags to suit your party and they follow party trends closely. Children (and a lot of adults) love anything personalised, so keeping designs simple with a name or even initial work a treat.

Mini Craft Kits

Here at Made By Me Craft Parties it’s all about the arts and crafts! Hence the perfect party favour to pair with my parties would be from the talented Cotton Twist.  An inspiration for parties & play, they pride themselves on making activities & gifts you’ll love to give, & children will love to receive.  Nostalgic, chic, simple & inherently satisfying, crafts draw upon a palette of raw materials from lolly sticks to boxes, & from twine to felt. Wave goodbye to all that plastic!  And just look at those tins, they are so cute!

Something for the Tweens and Teens

For something a bit more grown-up, look no further than the tasty Willow and Boo!  Their mission statement is ‘to transform the humble lollipop into something delicious and dazzling for every occasion.’  And wow their lollies certainly ‘POP’!  When I first saw the sherbet jars I fell in love!  These grown up treats would be perfect for a teen or tween party favour.  I can also see them going down a storm at hen parties and weddings.

Baking Mixes

Now who would like to go home with a baking mix party favour?  ‘Me please!’  I love the idea of giving party favours where you go home and make something.  A baking mix favour is simply perfect!  Katie Bakes is based in Hampshire and offers personalised baking mix party favours that only need the addition of melted butter.

Beautiful Personalised Biscuits

Don’t get me wrong … I love cake, however I find it often comes home from a party all smooshed up in a paper napkin and then looks totally unappetising.  The solution?  Biscuits By Sarah B.  They’re cute, they’re delicious, they’re packaged up beautifully.  Yum!
