How To Personalise Party Bags And Make Everybody Happy

We all love receiving presents, and giving them is pretty fun as well. Handing out favors is a great way to add a touch of fun and generosity to any occasion. If you want to go the extra mile and really impress your guests, personalized party bags will do the trick. However, it can be difficult to know what to include for some people, particularly when you’re throwing a mixed event. Here’s how to make sure you get it right.

  • Consider Gender

Boys like blue and girls like pink right? Ok it’s not quite as clear cut as that. However, there are some fillers that you can make an educated guess about. For girls staples could include lip gloss, bath stuff, friendship bracelets or nail varnish. For boys, gadget additions, jokes, tricks and gaming cards will probably go down well. For older men and women a slightly more sophisticated approach is appropriate such as bottle openers, small decorative items for the home and earrings.

  • Consider Age

It goes without saying that you wouldn’t give the same present to an elderly person as you would to a child. Taking age into account is probably the most important aspect of personalizing your gift bags. It can be hard to figure out the kind of gifts somebody would appreciate if they are a long way from your age group. A good idea is to ask people who fit in to the category you’re struggling with on what they would like to receive. They are bound to come up with plenty of ideas particularly if they’re invited!

  • Take The Time To Find Out What People Like

Considering age and gender can only take you so far. To truly personalize your party bags you need to take the time to find out what each individual is interested in. After all everybody’s different and not every little girl likes pink and lip gloss. Sending out a group email to all guests, asking them to reply with three things they are interested in, is both a good way to break the ice between those who don’t know each other and a way for you get some ideas.

  • Don’t Go Too Crazy

Whilst you don’t want to be boring, playing it a little safe is probably a good idea. Buy something too out there and you risk causing offense or making somebody feel awkward. Unless you know somebody really well, anything too rude or jokey is probably best saved for another day.

  • Add A Personal Touch To Remind Them Of The Event

This is a universal crowd pleaser and a chance for you to get creative. If your event is amazing (which of course it will be), a keepsake will remind everyone of all the hard work you put in. Some fun ideas can be to include a message in a bottle or personalized friendship bracelets.

Personalizing party bags is a great way to make your event extra special. These tips can help you get it right for all of your guests. Hopefully they’ll return the favor!

Do you have any ideas to share?
