Gift bags at 13

1)There will be a 13 year old at my son's birthday party. Should I provide a gift bag for her? What about a 10 year old?

2)Also, should I make all gift bags contain the same items or do them differently according to age? (All children present will be girls so I don't need to make boy/girl ones)

3)If I should do different ones according to age, what category of ages should I go by?

  • kinda hard to say- I mean is there a theme you are doing? and how different are the ages...obviously you might want to do different ones for say a 5 yr old vs. a 13 yr old...

  • If you are doing candy and pencils, everyone would like that. If you are doing something very young, then I wouldn't give to the older ones.

  • OP here-The theme is bubbles.

    The ages of the kids are 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 13.

    I was planning on doing bags filled with pencil w/sharpener or a 4 pack of crayons, mini coloring book, yo-yo, bubbles and wands, bubble gum, fruit snacks, and stencils.

  • I'd leave out the crayons and mini coloring book for the 13 year old but the rest sound like something a 13 year old would use.

    Have fun.
