What to Put in Halloween Goodie Bags for Trick-or-Treating and Parties
Halloween is just around the corner and it is the perfect time to show off your creativity and your DIY skills by creating some customized Halloween gift bags for friends, families, trick-or-treaters or coworkers. Whether you are preparing to welcome trick-or-treaters or throwing a Halloween party at home or work, DIY Halloween treat bags are sure to be crowd-pleasers, and can be created for both kids and adults.
Not sure what kinds of bags to use, or even what to put in Halloween goodie bags? Worry not, this guide will help you get started on creating fun goodie bags for whatever the Halloween season throws your way.
How to Prepare the Perfect Halloween Goodie Bags
Choose the Type of Bag You Want to Use
There are a wide variety of customized tote bags that are available for use when it comes to building a bag. You can choose from reusable natural canvas tote bags to paper bags, and even fold-up totes that can easily be packed away and stored until the next Halloween season rolls around. Purchasing wholesale bags will help keep costs down and ordering from a company like Bagmasters will allow you to customize the bag in whatever way you’d like. You can have pumpkins, ghosts, witches, and whatever else fits with your Halloween theme. Be sure to consider what the bags will be filled with when they are handed out. Smaller tote bags are perfect for holding small treats and candy for kids, while larger, and more durable bags can be used if you are giving bags to grown-ups with gifts that might be bigger and heavier, like little bottles of whiskey to get your Halloween party started.
Decorating the Bags
Purchasing customized wholesale tote bags will give you the opportunity to get as creative as you’d like when it comes to decorating Halloween gift bags. If you are a company looking to brand Halloween bags you can work with a graphic designer to create a Halloween themed logo that will be on display on the outside of the bag, or keep it simple and go with an already designed pumpkin drawstring backpack that can have any logo added to it. If you are looking for bags to hand out to trick-or-treaters or partygoers, simply choose Halloween colors to decorate the bag with, like black, orange or purple, or choose a fun themed pattern to be printed.
Finding the Right Treats to Fill Bags With
The possibilities are endless when it comes to filling your DIY Halloween treat bags, but it is important to take some extra time to think about your audience and find gifts that will be useful and something for them to get excited about. Candy is always a crowd-pleaser no matter who is receiving a Halloween gift bag. Instead of just dropping a few pieces of candy in, find ways to get creative with the packaging and presentation. If you’re interested in providing a few healthier treats, popcorn and granola bars are great options and the perfect alternative (be sure to consider any allergies or dietary restrictions of the people you are giving bags to). Handing out gift bags to an older crowd who might not be as excited about candy as small children? Opt for more practical goodie bag items like small office supplies, or tech gifts, or if the setting is appropriate, go with little bottles of liquor, that’s always a crowd-pleaser.

Halloween Treat Bags for Kids
It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to making kids happy with Halloween gift bags. Whether you’re a teacher with a classroom full of kids or you are expecting hordes of trick-or-treaters at your business or home, there are plenty of options available to fill their treat bags with. If you happen to work in a shopping center, mall, or even an individual office building that welcomes trick-or-treaters, fill simple custom paper bags with a few pieces of candy, or different snacks like bags of chips or a candy apple. If you work at a local library, hold a craft day where kids can come in and decorate their own paper bags and fill them with goodies as they leave. While candy is always gladly welcomed by little ones, you can also opt to throw in some non-traditional Halloween goodie items like stickers, small game sets or puzzles, temporary Halloween tattoos, and fun plastic jewelry they can rock with their costumes!
Halloween Goodie Bags for Adults
Building Halloween goodie bags for adults is a great way to thank friends and families for attending parties and to show appreciation to employees for all their hard work. Similar to building treat bags for kids, you can’t go wrong with giving chocolate or candy with a few other items inside black canvas tote bags to show your gratitude. If you are a business throwing a Halloween party for employees, fill their bags with some branded office supplies like pens or pencils, mini-notebooks, or even a Halloween-themed stress reliever. If you have fewer people to build bags for and a larger budget to work with, put together bags with more valuable items like different types of makeup or jewelry, portable electronics chargers, or a small portable speaker.
