How to throw a swag bag party and all my tips.

This is the hottest girls night out idea and perfect for the holidays.  You don’t need to be a celebrity or a blogger to get a great swag bag.  You just need to host a FUN filled holiday swag bag party and I’ll tell you how.  Swag bag party | Sarah Out and About

  1.  Invite your friends.  The swag bag party is a modern twist on the favorite things party.  The same premise applies.  Set a budget,  mine was $5.  I let my friends decide how much they wanted to spend but if you bring 4 items (spend $20) you take home 4 new items in your swag bag.  If you bring 6 items (spend $30) you take home six new swag bag items.

2.  When the girls arrived I had them put the swag on my dining room table and asked each of them to write their name on a piece of paper for each item they brought.  So if they brought 4 items they wrote their name down 4 times.  Swag Bag Party | Sarah Out and About

3.  After eating, drinking and taking lots of FUN photos (blog posts on all those details to come) we started the swag bag game.  Here’s how it works:  Each person talks about their swag, why they love it, where they use it, etc.  Then they tell everyone where they can get it and depending on how many items they brought they draw names and those people get to take home the swag.

I also handed out a swag bag to each guest to put all of their goodies in.

Holiday wrapping tip:  My friend Jessica gave me this idea.  She gets the Erin Condren labels personalized and buys the brown or white paper bags then coordinates the label with the tissue.  This makes a custom and super affordable gift bag for the holidays.

 

Swag Bag Party | Sarah Out and AboutIt is such a fun party and getting to hear what your friends are loving and hearing about new items you may not know about.  I had a friend write down each item so that if you didn’t get swag you were interested in you can check it out later.

 

These items are all great stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, gifts for your BFF, sister, mom, friends, etc. Who doesn’t want a swag bag?
