Birthday in a Bag : A Cute DIY Birthday gift and Free Printable Birthday Tags

“It’s my mama’s birthday, it’s my mama’s birthday,  so we’re gonna party like it’s my mama’s birthday.”  The start of the new year officially kicks off birthday season in our house.  Throughout the next six months there are a TON of birthdays…like this week with two in a row, so it always has me thinking about fun ideas to celebrate.  I love this easy Birthday in a Bag.  It’s such a cute DIY birthday gift that can be made in a few minutes and shipped anywhere without costing a ton because it is fairly lightweight.

Another great thing about this birthday in a bag, is the fact that you can totally personalize it for whoever you are sending it to.  Birthdays scream color to me, so I went with a rainbow of color and added things like festive straws, balloons, cute ice cream cups and cute wood spoons, some candy, noise makers, candles and a gift card for some ice cream…everything you need for a fun little party to celebrate your big day.

I found my bag at Hobby Lobby, but there are great little inexpensive bags like this all over the place.  Walmart, Target and Amazon , some of my favorite affiliates, all carry something similar.  Just tuck all your little birthday in a bag goodies inside and attach your tag and send it on it’s way!

I don’t know about you, but I would sure love to see something bright and cheerful like this pop up in my mailbox on my special day!  This easy gift can be assembled with a quick trip to your local Target, and the free tag.  It takes only minutes to make, but looks like there is a lot of time and effort put into it, making the gift recipient feel extra special.

  1. What an adorable idea! My niece lives too far away for us to visit for her birthday each year and this looks like the perfect thing to send her. Thanks for the printable and for the fun idea!

  2. My almost 10 year old granddaughter would love this idea for her birthday. Thanks for sharing with us at #OvertheMoon Link Party. Pinned and shared 🙂
