I have decided to make my own Hen Night party bags (I know people do similar things, and the MOH normally does it, but my MOH can't make it) and tried to keep it as cheap as possible, but having a fun and silly approach. I have done enough for 20 people as I have at most 20 people coming along (at the moment its 19).\n\nI've brought my own gift bags (Home Bargains at 39p each), and printed out something to stick on each side of the bag (one side is a picture of a cocktail glass and ring with "Hen Nite" above it, and the other side has an outline of a cartoon hen with heels, above it saying "Rebecca's Hen Night" and at the bottom says "26th April 2013". Inside the hen is the person's name the bag belongs to).\n\nContents:\n2 x party poppers (a bag of 50 for £2.50 in Tesco)\n2 x party balloons (two bags of 25 for £1.40 in Tesco)\n1 x small bottle of bubbles (three boxes of 6 for £3 in Tesco- need to buy 2 more bottles as I'm 2 short)\n1 x neon glow stick and connector (tube of 20 with connectors for 95p in Poundland)\n1 x stick on name badge (32 for £3 from Amazon)\n1 x willy straw (36 for £4.99 on Amazon)\n2 x plastic disposable shot glasses (40 for 95p from Poundland)\n\nAlso, each bag has a "survival kit" (made up myself from an idea I saw online) containing the following items in a drawstring organza bag (brought years ago from Hobbycraft but never used them!):\n1 x condom (32 for £1.90 in Poundland)\n1 x stick of chewing gum (35 sticks for 99p in Home Bargains)\n1 x plaster (from home- need a few more strips as I've ran out)\n1 x paracetamol (two boxes of 16 for 32p from Superdrug- got to cut the packets up so they're sealed still, but each bag gets one capsule.\n\nThere's a couple of things that may be a little expensive, but don't plan on adding anything else, with the exception of little perfume, cosmetic or facial/body cream samples if I can get some free ones from places like Boots, Superdrug, etc, if I can't get free ones I wont bother! I was going to add some sweets of some description or chocolate but don't think I'll bother now, trying to keep the cost down!\n\nI'm going to print out a little insert for the gift bag saying thank you for being a part of my night, and got three rules:\n1. Make sure I have a really good time (within reason obviously) but my one thing I've said no to is alcohol for me (I don't drink full stop and its the one thing I want people to respect. I have no problem with people drinking but so long as they don't give me alcohol, pour alcohol in my drink, etc).\n2. Take loads of photographs and send me a copy of any that they have taken so I can put them in a special Hen Night photo album.\n3. Have a really good time themselves, stating that they deserve a really good night and it will help with number one if I can see they are really having a good night.\n\nEach survival kit will have a little hand written insert saying why each item is in there (along the lines of a condom- I want you to have a good night, but stay safe whatever you do!, a plaster- for those unwanted blisters from your dancing shoes, a stick of chewing gum- for that minty fresh breath, a paracetamol capsule- for the morning after the night before!)\n\nThe total of everything is £27.80 (need to add the cost of 2 bottles of bubbles, which for argument's sake we'll say £1 in total) Make that now £28.50, so each bag is costing around £1.44 per person. I'm quite impressed with that!\n\nWill post photographs (if I can) when they are completed.
