Do’s and Don’ts of Gift Bags

Want to say thank you to those wonderful guests at your event? Nothing speaks louder than a lovely gift bag with interesting gift items bundled together in one place. Gift bags are certainly the most popular way of offering gifts at any event and people love the exciting ‘what will I find inside that bag’ suspense when they receive one. However, you can use or abuse this wonderful gifting opportunity by doing it the wrong way. Follow these dos’s and don’ts of gift bags to make sure that they are appreciated by your guests.

Let’s begin with the do’s of gift bags.


For Event Planning Trends

Water bottle

Nothing can ever beat water when you are truly thirsty. A small water-bottle can feel like an oasis in the desert when you are in a hot climate. It is one of the most useful items to be part of a well-thought-out gift bag.

Scent bottles

They are always one of the most loved gifts of all. Scents are somehow deeply connected to our sub-conscious memories. A smell of a particular brand can trigger long-forgotten memories. It’s gift that can be re-gifted to someone you love.

Skin-care products

A great item to include in a gift bag of any size or shape. Women love to try out newer brands and products when it comes to beautify their skin. Make sure that the products are safe for skin and don’t cause irritation or allergies.

Hair-care items

They go perfectly well with skin-care items as an additional surprise to the receiver. Gels and shampoos are indispensable when taking good care of hair and it is something both men and women will find useful.

Wrap it well

How you present those gift bags is equally important as what you put inside them. Present your gift bags in as attractive a manner as possible. Let them make an instant appeal to the receiver and make them impatient to explore them.

And now let’s see some don’ts of gift bags.



If the climate is hot, chocolates will melt and spoil the whole gift packaging in no time. That’s certainly not what you intend. Something like dried fruits will make a better choice.


No more alcohol please. Gone are the days when adding a bottle of champagne was a common thing. You cannot do it anymore as it is illegal. So play by the rules of the game and avoid alcohol in your gift bag.

Color cosmetics

Neither everyone uses the same products nor does one color suit all. A unique color cosmetic product will go waste if it doesn’t suit the person. It is best to avoid such products or at least use bronze or nude shades that will suit most people.

Go overboard

Gift well inside your budget and don’t go overboard with it. A gift is a gesture of your thankfulness and there is no need to be extravagant in it. It will only look showy. Make sure that your gift bag contains gift items that are meaningful and suit the event. Also they should be useful to people so that they can use them and remember you while doing so.
