Mabel’s Labels Loot Bag Combo – Giveaway

19th January 2011

I have very strong feelings when it comes to what to put in birthday loot bags.

I am definitely not a fan of loot bags that are basically filled with candy and dollar store crap. Hate them.

My thinking is always less is more – I tend to pick one or two items that the kids will actually be able use and enjoy and go from there.

So I’m loving this new idea from Mabel’s Labels, a fabulous Canadian company.

Mabel’s Labels has just introduced a great product to their line that is perfect for any birthday celebration – the Loot Bag Combo.

This practical yet adorable goody bag item was inspired by celebrities who incorporated Mabel’s Labels Sticky Labels and Bag Tags into their children’s birthdays. In the last year alone, Reese Witherspoon, Tori Spelling, Nancy O’Dell, Jason and Naomi Priestley, Ali Landry and Kristy Swanson made Mabel’s Labels a must-have goody bag addition. This affordable and durable sampler pack includes 5 custom Sticky Labels and one Bag Tag, available in 27 designs at $5 a combo (minimum order of 6 combos required). Order a combo today for your kiddos next birthday party!


I’m giving away one LOOT BAG COMBO (for 6 kids) – (6 x 5 Sticky Labels & 1 Bag Tag) to one lucky winner.

    My kids got a full sized Webkin at a birthday party they went too. I would have to say that was the best thing they have ever received!

  2. Abby

    My 8 month old has only been to one birthday party, and strangely, he got one of those paddles with the bouncy ball attached. That promptly went into that trash.

  3. Donel Payne

    The funniest thing i’ve seen given at a birthday party was a pair of underwear. The funny part was not the gift, but his reaction and how he wanted no part of it.

    I haven’t really had a ‘bad’ loot bag item… apart from the crappy dollar store toys, and the crappy dollar store chocolate. They end up in the trash… may as well just give the kids $5. 😉 I do love Mabel’s Labels what a great idea for a loot bag!

    A birthday party for a 1 yo… all the kids were around the same age, so they all got travel spoons in the loot bag. Great for taking with you and there’s no guilt if it gets accidentally lost!

  7. Cindy

    Best loot bag item my kids received was a $5 gift card for Chapters (it came attached to a very large gingerbread man cookie to make it less boring for the kids)!

  8. Fadra

    My worst goody bag item was in the goody bags I made. Yes, I am admitting to a parenting fail. I hate the cheap stuff too and I was going for an airplane themed birthday party for my son’s 2nd birthday. I got a little nuts on Etsy and bought homemade airplane lollipops (that were mostly broken when they arrived) and handmade soap in the shape of airplanes that smelled awful. If my kid had received that stuff at someone else’s party, I would have put it straight into the garbage!

  9. Tara

    The best item I had in a loot bag at a party for a 1yr old was a sippy cup for my son (who was also one at the time). Practical. Or anything that makes noise!!

    The worst by far was those ‘fireball’ jawbreaker candies for a 3 year old. Really, what was that parent thinking????

  10. CrystalC2B

    The best loot bag thing we ever had, was when we found monster hand shaped loot bags that we filled for my oldest’s 5th birthday. All the kids thought they were hilarious.

    When your birthday is November 1st, you get a lot of Hallowe’en goodies.

  11. Selmada

    I’d say the best is what we gave for my twins first birthday. Each loot bag contained a different item, specifically picked for the child the bag was going to! This wasnt the cheapest way to go, but no one tossed theirs in the garbage. It also allowed me to put together gift bags for kids ranging from 8 months to 4 years.

  12. Robin

    The best thing was a pair of fluorescent lips that was actually a kazoo. It wasn’t for the kids – it was for the moms. We each had one in a different colour. Made for fabulous photos 😉

  13. Hawkis

    Best lootbag was a full size 101Dalmations lunch box, for the whole JK class in attendance + friends. There must have been 40 of them, filled with homemade dog bone shaped cookies. Very cute!

  14. Vicky

    My son went to a birthday party between Christmas and New Years. The loot bag was actually a round plastic sled/flying saucer! I thought this was a great idea, practical and fun too!

  15. Nikki

    Worst goody bag item by far is anything that makes horrendous noise. Why doesmit seem my daughter always receives horns with the strangest pitch?

  16. Michelle

    One of the best things my son ever received as a party favor was a Eric Carle teething rattle when he was 4 months old.

  17. Gemma

    The worst have to be the dollar store gifts that end up in the garbage!!! The best are books and gift cards. The labels are a great idea too!

  18. Shannon @ AnchorMommy

    Oh, I am so glad you are having this giveaway, because GET THIS. At the birthday party my son went to a couple weeks ago, the mom called all the kids over to get their “party favor,” which turned out to be a DAMN GOLDFISH IN A BAG. We had to go straight to the pet store after the party to buy supplies for the fish (this was on a Sunday evening, mind you) and the thing survived one week before going belly up on us. My son was devastated. Poor kid had to learn a firsthand lesson about death and dying because of a damn party favor.

    I follow on twitter. I dont do google connect yet. and the weirdest thing ive ever seen is a fake dr. mask. Why would anyone think that was a good idea?

  20. Liz W

    My favourite party favours were from my 3 y.o. daughter’s fairy-themed birthday. All the little girls in attendance received a magic wand, wings and a handmade fairy skirt. The girls’ reactions as they flew around the party was priceless.

  21. katie d

    I can’t think of a worst item… but i do feel bad when the goody bags my kids walk out with are worth more than the gift we bought.

    favorite party favor = books

  22. Jennifer

    I put sparky bouncy balls in my daughter’s birthday grab bags. They has eyeballs that floated in them and if you bounced them hard enough, the eyeball lit up.
    Kids loved them, parents hated them. Win!

  23. Tabitha P

    Best thing I’ve seen so far is a $5.00 giftcard to McDonald’s (not preferred choice of restaurant but it’s better then a bag of dollar store crap!)
