Our kids have gotten everything from personalized backpacks to monogrammed clothing — just for showing up to a birthday party! Since we’re not much for keeping up with the Joneses, we’re doing everyone a favor with these easy, adorable, DIY ideas for party swag!
Make a Rainbow
This is a super sweet and super simple giveaway for candy lovers. All you need is rainbow licorice and mini marshmallows (“clouds”). Bend the licorice into a U-shape, placed on top of marshmallow clouds inside a plastic bag. It’s too cute and too yummy!

No-sew masks are perfect for superheroes, princes, and princesses who love to show off their secret identities. All you need is some felt, ribbon, scissors, and 5 minutes (per mask) — totally doable for Super Mom!
Nameplate Letter Magnets
If you can fill a bag, you can make this swag! Put alphabet refrigerator magnets that spell out each attendee’s first and last name in a cellophane bag that’s tied with a festive bow. Cheap, cute, and accidentally educational!
When In Doubt, Bake!
Fake it ‘til you bake it by making brownies (from a box, of course), and cutting them into bites so that everyone gets a few (hint: smaller brownies equals less time in the kitchen!) Have personalized “Thank you for coming” stickers printed to seal a paper bag that holds all the goodies inside.
