Remember when you were young and went to a different child’s birthday Party each month? Remember eagerly crowding around the birthday child at the end of the celebrations desperately waiting to be bestowed the holy grail of kids’ parties … THE GOODY BAG? Don’t you miss that excitement? Now that we’re older the only thing we are usually guaranteed to be leaving from a party with is a fuzzy head and the promise of the mother of all hangovers in the morning! What, no sweets, no cake, no balloon, no tacky toy?!
But it doesn’t have to be this way, if you are on the countdown to your Hen Party, why not re-create some of that childlike excitement amongst your hens? Giving out a Hen Party Gift Bag is a lovely way of thanking the girls that have probably gone to a lot of effort and expense to be there for you. It’s also a great way of ensuring your hens have all of the essentials required for your Hen Weekend Activity.
Here at UKGirlThing, we know that there are different sorts of Hen Weekends, there are your more chic subdued weekends that will probably involve a visit to a Spa-Kle Destination day spa, followed by a meal and a few cocktails in the evening. There’s your adrenalin junkie, hi octane daredevil weekend full of Tank driving, Water sports and Paintballing. And then there’s your more traditional last night of freedom style weekends that usually include some form of male nudity, plenty of shots and maybe even a spot of karaoke. Your Hen Party Bags should reflect your hen weekend so to help you we have put together a list of hen party bag ideas depending on what sort of hen you are.
The Chic Hen Weekend
If your hen party is more of a soiree then a sophisticated Hen Party Goodie bag is most definitely in order. Consider filling a pretty gift bag with various pamper product samples. A sachet of premium moisturiser, a face pack, a sachet of hand cream, a perfume sample and maybe some miniature luxury hair treatments. You will be surprised what samples you can blag from the beauty counters in department stores and if you start collecting a few each weekend you will build up a luxurious beauty selection in no time! You can add to this a few posh chocolates, a mini bottle of sparkling rose wine, a lip balm, mints, a pocket mirror, a scented candle (you could even home make these), a nail polish and file, and perhaps even a home-made wine charm to complete the pampering party bag. What sophisticated hen wouldn’t want to receive this goody bag?!
The Adrenalin Junky Weekend
If you plan on pushing yourselves to the limit on your hen do then a Hen Party Survival party bag could be in order! Perhaps an emergency kit of plasters, Paracetamol and a bottle of water would be a good antidote to your daytime activities and you could perhaps include the gel heel pads to soothe weary feet and an Alka-Seltzer for the morning after if you plan on having a few drinks to ease your aching bones after a hard days paintballing. You could always add little props that tie in with your activity such as cammo headbands, inflatable machine guns and dog tags if you were doing tank driving or paintballing.
The Traditional Hen Party
What traditional hen party wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of an excessive amount of willies! Willy straws, Willy shaped soap, Willy chocolates, Willy whistles, Willy bubbles you get the idea! For those not quite so phallic-ly minded you could stuff your hen party bags full of Glow sticks, Hen night sashes, Hen night badges, Party poppers, a Shot glass necklace, balloons, dare cards, and head boppers. Perhaps a can of pre-mixed cocktail to get the party started, some sweets to keep the sugar levels up and a personal funny poem thanking all of your girls for being there would also make the girls feel special and their efforts appreciated. Finish it off with a hangover survivor kit and you’ve get everything you need to survive a weekend of drinking, dancing and delicious girly fun!
We hope that this gives you some inspiration, if you think we have forgotten a key hen party bag goody then let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
