Goodie Bags

What comes to mind when you think of “goodie bags”?  Do you have visions of cello bags filled with candy?  I remember growing up, every party had a goodie bag – something for the guests to take home to remember the fun they had at the party.  Or if you are in direct sales, maybe you think of the bags you give out to potential customers.  Goodie bags are a great what to share your business with some chocolates or other treats.

Gift bags have become an important part of every milestone – baby showers, bridal showers, Sweet 16 parties, weddings, retirement, graduation and the list goes on, right?  We are always trying to figure out what to put in them especially in these days of food allergies and political correctness.  Why not reach out to your favorite direct sellers and ask them for samples?  Interesting thought right?

Almost every business has samples of some kind that they would love to share with your friends and family.  From samples of soap, nail decor, perfume, lipstick, candy, bookmarks, coloring sheets, etc.  Business people LOVE the free advertising and as “Hosts”, we love the opportunity to save money.  If you are in a business where samples are not available,you can print out bookmarks, recipe cards, candy wrappers, gift bag tags, shopping lists, chore charts, etc all with pretty designs on them along with your business card and a coupon.  Depending on the party or event, would determine what would be donated.3885229a

So reach out to your friends in direct sales, help them to promote their business while putting together some unique goodie bags.

I do a goodie bag for kids that includes a coloring sheet, a few crayons, my business card and a mini catalog.  See a mom struggling with a fussy child, share the goodie bag with them.  What fussy child is not quieted by a colorful bag to play with?

What is your next event, you will need a goodie bag for?
