Books from The Book People - buy a pack of 10 and split. Ideal for this age range too.

heather1980 Mon 04-May-09 14:34:06 this site is good for cheap party bag stuff

WOW that tickseed site is great

Hi. Agree with book people and then splitting. Also in bargain bookshops they often have colouring books for £1 each (Hello Kitty and the like). I often dish theses out with some crayons and a bit of cake. Parents do seem very pleased not to have a bag of plastic rubbish!

Hair bobbles for little girls or hair slides.

Toy cars for little boys.

tickseed is wonderful (and fast) doing ds's bags from here this year. Bookpeople fab idea too - friend did this for her ds (wrapped up book with a choc bar and a packet of chews) - kids loved it!

If you use the book people then remember to try their clearance store, bananas - when they only have a few left of something and don't want it on their main site, they stick it on the bananas site - and you can get the packs of books even more cheaply.

They currently have a pack of 8 Balamory books for £3, 6 fairy books for £4 and just spotted the complete Thomas collection of 50 books for £15 although drat, think that might now be out of stock sad.

If you are looking for something in particular you maybe need to be watching the site a bit more regularly than the book people as the stock turnover is a bit quicker than the book people site as there are just a few of things but if you don't mind too much they usually have something that is suitable for fairly general categories of boy/girl/age group - but say you wanted fairy princess books for a themed party you might want to watch the site and get them when you see them IYSWIM.

I had 15 kids to buy for in Feb. So bought the boys Cars Annuals and the girls Angelina Ballerine for 99p each from the Book Shop and gave them cake and a sweet/funsize each

I got playdoh from tesco, a huge box of 20 small tubs for £8, and put two tubs in each bag, plus a couple of balloons and mini jam dodgers. For second birthday, but he's got a big brother so children's age was from 18 months to 4 years old, and those presents were suitable for all the kids.
