Love the idea of named gingerbread men/ladies (but possibly a lot of work!). You can buy packs of books from The Book People and split them up, so each one gets a book. Other ideas I've seen on here are a plant pot with seeds (maybe they could decorate it at the party, or plant it at the party?). Like the craft idea too - Baker Ross is good for stuff like that.

They have several kits including jungle and farm animals. Just put 'hand puppet' in the search box

Or the other fun kit they do is the spider one.

You can get the same kits at baker ross but you have to order bigger quantities to get the free delivery there. So depending on how many you want it can be worth checking out both sites.

At DS age 8's last party we gave out velvet pouches with fossils and crystals in them. The children loved them. I got them from JuniorGeo. It was so liberating not to buy lots of plastic tat, then see it all being discarded.

This year for DD1 (6) we gave a packet of seeds, a plant pot with stickers to decorate it and a bag of soil.

As others have said - buy pack of books and split, but go to 'Red House Books' they are part of the The Book People, but only sell children's books and P+P is free!

DD1 had her party last week (a month early because it was the start of the holidays here, and she wanted to make sure her schoolfriends could all come this year)
I'm so sick of doing party bags (also they are sooo expensive to do, and she had invited entire class plus all her other friends and told them all to feel free to bring siblings shock) , so I asked DD if it was okay by her to do something different this year, and I made each guest a cookie with their name iced onto it.
I loved making them, and not one of the kids asked for a party bag
