One year we made the mistake of not having treat bags at my son’s birthday party. Rivers were cried. And we learned our lesson in a hurry. But the thing with treat bags is that they have to hit 3 points; not contain too much sugar, not cost too much money, and be fun for the recipient. It’s a tall order. So for future reference I’ve rounded up 28 of the best birthday party favour ideas that I could find. Most of these ideas include free printables, but a few of them will require a little more diy’ing on your part.

I tried to find lots of non-candy options, mainly because it drives me nuts when my boys come home from a party with loot bags full of sugar. I’m not anti-sugar by any means, but things like suckers, fizzy sugar powder, ring pops, etc make my kids go bat shit crazy. Usually little chocolates or cookies don’t affect them too much.
Some of these birthday party favour ideas are actually just a design idea for the bag or a printable topper, you’ll have to come up with the treat ideas. I usually just cruise through the Dollar store to find some appropriate treat bag fillers. But now I can also reference this post well in advance of future parties to get some more creative ideas!
