Are party bags really necessary?

This is a question that I saw posted on a mums networking site today....
 
Well believe it or not, a party bag is the most vital part of a party! The term ‘party bag’ doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be a bag, but rather a name given to a gift given out to children at the end of a party to thank them for coming.
 
Kids, especially of school age, almost expect a gift of some kind at the end of a party and many children look forward to receiving this well before the party has even begun! These days if kids don’t receive anything, there are sure to be many unhappy faces!

 
For the party host, it is a great way to thank everyone for coming and bringing out the party bags is the grand finale and a lovely subtle way of showing that the party is over and it’s time to go home.
 
Gifts given usually reflect the party in some way, especially if there is a particular theme and it almost acts as a summary of the party, after all it’s the last thing that kids and their parents remember!
 
Many parents, especially school parents, try to out do each other and it has almost become a competition of who can come up with the best party bag!
This doesn’t necessarily mean that the gift has to be expensive, but rather it’s the most unusual that counts. However, most kids are usually happy with simple gifts and it’s the sweets they mainly want anyway.
 
There are also many parents that don’t throw parties for their children, but give out party bags to each of their child’s friends instead.
 
So in answer to the above question - YES THEY ARE!!
