Make it educational
A brand-new book – chosen for each child, or something along the party's theme – is perfect loot. Wrap it up with a lollipop and both mama and kid are happy! Scholastic Canada has a great selection – order through your child's school and you'll be supporting the classroom too. Everybody wins.
Give them a choice
Give Chapters Indigo gift cards – perfect for kids to choose their own book at their local store or online. Chapters also has a selection of their own prepackaged loot bags that you can buy online and browse by age group.
Give green loot
Loot Lady offers a full range of prepackaged, customizable loot bags to suit many ages and themes. All available to order online – including a new Eco Green Line loot like the one pictured here – with a reusable bag, wooden clacker instrument, wooden-handled skipping rope and garden bug pencil (nut-free lollipop always included too!)
Who doesn't love popcorn? Kernels popcorn is a favourite treat that make a great loot item. Gift tins and gift cards are also available. Make sure your party-goers are preschoolers and up (popcorn not recommended for babies and toddlers).
Embrace the trinkets
Sometimes, all kids really want to give out is the trinkets that make up a lot of loot bags… so save money by ordering through Oriental Trading and you'll get the most bang for your buck. They have a huge selection of party favours, crafts, and more – and they deliver!
