Are you organising your child’s birthday party? Wondering what do you put in the party bags for the children to take home? Here are some party bag ideas, and where to find them.

Party Bag Ideas

Where can I find them?

Mini jigsaw puzzles for the kids

Local toy shops or bookstores

Toy cars for the boys

Local toy shops or larger supermarkets

Hair accessories such as clips, go-gos and hair bands

Claire’s Accessories, Penneys and most local pharmacies

A Ladybird Disney book for each child

Local bookshops

Mini notepads and mini highlighters

Some newsagents or Stationers

Pens and pencils and rubbers

Some newsagents or Stationers

Curly drinking straws

Most grocery stores

Plastic snakes and joke stuff

Local 2 euro/ eurosaver shops and local Joke Stores

Kids’ magazines (could work with a theme such as a Peppa Pig party or Spiderman)

Newsagents or bookstores

Stickers, Silly Bands or the latest collectible cards

Local 2 Euro Shop, Local Newsagents and Craft Shops

For a change from plastic loot bags, look out for fabric party bags or make your own simple ones.

Shops like Smyths and Tesco sell packs of small toys suitable for both boys and girls e.g. 8 bouncy balls, 8 mini stampers etc. These are great as they are much less expensive than buying individual items and keep everyone happy as they are all the same.
