Party Bags and Party Favours For Kids...

Let's be honest, party bags can often look uninspired and are often the same at every party. A crumpled bag filled with games and sweets that will be used once (or eaten) and then forgotten.

Make sure your party bag is as exciting as your party! Match your party bag and favours to your party theme and add something different.

Our range is divided into boys party favours, girls party favours and unisex party favours; meaning you can find the best ones for your party. Here's a few ideas on how to make your party bags different...

Adding a craft kit such as Shrinkles Party Bag Kits means that the party will continue long after it has actually ended. Don't be fooled into thinking Shrinkles are just for girls though! We've got kits for boys too, with themes like Formula One and Pirates!

Our range of self-inking stampers for kids are also great for party bags. A huge choice of themes mean that you can even match them to your theme!

Temporary tattoos for kids are also extremely popular and make a great alternative to face painting! The kids can wear them when they like or you could do them at the party itself.

If you do fancy a bit of face painting, our Snazaroo themed kits are now 10% off...
