For the older kids, I had small totes and drawstring bags made. I added coloring books and crayons inside.
It was a no-brainer. We wanted something that kids can use again, without the usual birthday theme or the name of the celebrant. So we just incorporated parts of the invitation to the bag prints.

I bought the canvas cloth, had the Lilly Pulitzer and chevron giraffe prints printed by my cousin using heat transfer paper (awesome by the way), then had the canvas sewn by a seamstress. Printing came first so the quality will be at its best.
They were "terno" with my invitations.
They were such a hit, even some lucky grown-ups got some. Of course, this was after the kids got theirs.
The cost of each bag was just around P60-75. You can make them cheaper if you sew and print them yourselves.
I changed the print on the drawstring bags, so boys won't be ashamed to carry them. Haha.
