Prefilled party bags can be an absolute lifesaver when you’re in the throes of planning your child’s birthday party. Amongst all the other things that need to be organised, it is great to know that you don’t have to hunt high and low for party bag fillers or spend time stuffing party bags.
Unfortunately, I’ve found that a lot of prefilled party bags leave a lot to be desired, especially if you want to avoid giving cheap plastic junk or mountains of sweets.
So, I’ve done some research and curated a roundup of the best pre-filled party bags, so you can simply browse the list and choose the ones that will work for your next kids’ party.
The pre-filled party bags that made it into the roundup contain stuff that kids will want, use and love.
I’ve taken a bit of creative licence to include a couple of options that actually just contain one thing, but that thing is an activity that the kids can craft or make.
11 BEST PRE-FILLED KIDS’ PARTY BAG IDEAS
Browse this curation of pre-filled party bag ideas to find the best bags for your child’s birthday party.
1. LITTLE OTTER PRE-FILLED PARTY BAGS
2. UNICORN PREFILLED PARTY BAGS
Meli & Ro’s pre-filled party bags are a little more expensive than the other party bags I’ve mentioned, but the fillers are great quality, and the bags are perfect if you only have a few guests to give a bag to.
3. PAPER PARTY BAG SHOP
The Paper Party Bag Shop has a lovely little selection of eco-friendly party bags. The bags and their contents are totally plastic-free and have biodegradable/compostable packaging. I love the Trickster Party bag. It's totally gender-neutral and has some imagination-sparking gifts inside.
4. THE CURIOUS CATERPILLAR PRE-FILLED PARTY BAGS
5. PERSONALISED MAGIC MUG CAKE KIT
I am a big fan of party bags that contain one fabulous thing, especially if it is something that kids can make.
This Craft & Crumb Magic Mug Cake Kit (mug not included) has cake mix, mini chocolate sprinkles, baking instructions and a dotty wooden fork for eating the cake with.
It arrives flat packed for you to pop the few ingredients into the bag and seal with a personalised 'Thank you for coming to my/our party' sticker.
6. PRE-FILLED THANK YOU PARTY CONE
These Little Lulubel brightly coloured party cones filled with treats will delight any party guest. There's even a 'thank you' message on the front, so you could, in theory, say that you've covered off thank you notes at the same time.
The cones can be personalised if you place a minimum order of 15.
7. PERSONALISED SWEETIE PARTY BAGS
These prefilled goodie bags are filled with a mixture of 10-12 treats and goodies, including savoury and sweet snacks, toys, activities, learning tools, and stationary.
The bags can be personalised, they are decorated with glitter stickers and can also have a personalised birthday message as an optional extra.
8. PERSONALISED SWEETIE STRINGS KIT PARTY BAG
This party bag kit will have kids wide-eyed with delight and adults having a nostalgic moment.
Each Craft & Crumb Sweetie String Kit comes in a printed kraft gift bag which can be personalised with a 'thank you for coming to my party' sticker. The bags are sent flat packed for you to pop the few ingredients inside.
You can buy them in sets of six on Amazon.
9. SUBLIME SCIENCE PREFILLED PARTY BAGS
These brilliant party bags are put together by the Sublime Science team, who host fantastic science parties for kids. The team won backing from Dragon’s Den and has now hosted parties for over one million kids!
There are three kinds of bags available. Platinum is the most popular. It contains a flying finger rocket, air-powered helicopter, micro-catchabubbles, rainbow diffraction glasses, plus a copy of 'The Most Incredible Science Experiment Book Ever' (worth £9.99)
10. RECYCLEME CRAFT KITS
These kits are wonderful because they are eco-friendly and contain a craft-making kit, which is the perfect antidote to junk-filled party bags.
