    We had my son's first birthday last weekend, for the under 3's we had - bath toy, sultanas, bubbles, balloon and a party blower.
    The older kids had - yo yo, stickers, sultanas, bubbles, balloon and a party blower.

    We always keep them very very simple as I hate plastic crap as much as/more than lollies!
    Ours will usually have: lollipop, small chocolate, a balloon and then some small trinket related to the party (eg pirate party- eyepatch, fairy party- small wand etc)

    Everywhere! The cookies and lollipops from Big W, the torches on line at JB wholesalers, the Death Star mint tins at popculcha.com , the chocolates from IGA and the key ring from AliExpress - the lolly bags I got made and personalised from Etsy - I've got sooo much more stuff as well that we will use at the party

    Out of curiosity Elijahs mum, what would one party bag all made up cost?

    I find lolly bags with the expectation of them being awesome are so expensive to do, I hate making lollybags and also hate revisiting them

    I try not to add it up! The most expensive thing was the bag at $2.50 but they are personalised so the kids can keep them, the torch was $1.75, mints $1, cookies and chocolate , lollies , balloons and lollipops were in big packets so maybe $1 for all, the pen was on sale for $1.50 and the key ring $1 so maybe all up about $9 each , most people spend a lot more on presents for DS so I don't mind ( plus I've only got 1 child so I do tend to go overboard!)

    This year my son gave out a book with a thankyou note written inside and a little box of lollies and party favours like bouncy balls. Last year we did the same but cups instead of boxes and all the kids got a paint and put together car which they all loved. I try to make it different each year.
