Halloween is a fun and festive holiday that makes adults want to party just as much as children. If you have decided to host a costume party this year for your adult friends, there is much to be thought of. After the guest list, the decorations, deciding on a theme and what refreshments will be served, the next item on the list is to decide on the Halloween gift bags. Certainly not a requirement, but if you have the time, the money and inclination to do so, assembling Halloween gift bags for the adults is a nice touch. Here are some ideas on what containers and items you can offer to your adult guests as parting gifts.
Be Creative With Your Halloween Gift Bags. Clear cellophane gift bags tied with a ribbon are simple and work just fine, but you are not limited to this option. Consider using small wicker baskets, artificial pumpkins carved into jack o’ lanterns, plastic Halloween themed goblets, Terra cotta flower pots, or cellophane bags designed to wrap a gift bottle of wine are all inventive ideas that can be easily filled with your Halloween gift bag items for your guests.
Consider Adding A Bit Of Spirits To Your Adult Gift Bags. Since this is an adult party, and these gift bags are meant for adult guests, it is perfectly acceptable to add a bit of spirits to the gift bags. Small bottles of rum, tequila or vodka can be added to the gift bags along with a packet of mixer to make specific drinks such as a Margarita is a fun idea for those who will appreciate it. For those guests who abstain from alcohol, simply assemble a few gift bags without, and be sure to keep those separate so they do not get mixed up.
Adults Love Candy Too! A few bags of candy corn, lollipops or chewing gum can be split up to add to the gift bags. Even those people who normally avoid eating sugar laden snacks usually can’t resist a treat or two on Halloween. If you know a few of your guests’ favorite candy treats, be sure to add those and then mark the gift bags accordingly so that the chocolate lover gets the chocolate filled gift bag and the lollipop lady gets the one filled with lollipops. Your guests will love the thought and time you put into these Halloween gift bags and be touched that you remembered their favorite candy treats.
Have Fun With The Fact That These Gift Bags Are For Adults. If you have children and have assembled many a gift bag in your time, have fun with the fact that now is the time to spoil your adult friends. Votive candles, disposable cameras, bath and beauty products, small picture frames, miniature holiday decorations and gift cards to local restaurants and movie theaters are all good choices for Halloween gift bag items.
Treating your adult friends to Halloween gift bags on the way out of your bash will let these loved ones know how happy you are to have them in your life, and to have had a little bit of holiday fun with them.
