Last orders for Christmas!

Due to very  high demand, the last date for placing orders for personalised Santa Sacks is Wednesday, 14th December. 

After this date you will not be able to order for this Christmas, so if you're thinking of buying one for a special person, I'd advise you get your order in now.

Santa Sacks

Christmas is fast approaching - and don't we know it!  Fortunately, the Funky Dory HQ is not hiding beneath a very deep blanket of snow, as we were this time last year, but we're managing to feel ever so slightly festive.

This is because we've very busy since the end of the summer holidays printing Santa Sacks and gift bags.  This year they are available in 4 different designs - Santa (of course), Rocking Reindeer, Jolly Snowman and Party Penguin, and in 3 different sizes.

Each Santa sack is printed to order and can be personalised with a Christmas greeting and a name.

Yes, it's almost that time of year again, and apologies for anyone who thinks this may be premature, but as some shops have had Halloween goodies in since the end of August, and I need to give those lovely Google bots something new to feed over, I thought I'd better "sort out Halloween"  now.

This year we have the usual mix of Halloween party bag fillers, Halloween loot bags and Cotton Halloween bags. 

New for this year are the lovely black Halloween party boxes - in 3 different designs.  They make lovely party food boxes, and are great filled with goodies as an alternative to a party bag.  There is also the advantage that you will not find these boxes with these designs anywhere else!

We've also added some special paper Halloween party bags - with the same 3 designs.  They are great for parties and trick-or-treaters, and there is LOADS of space inside for treats and sweets.

Toddler Party Bags

Party bags for the under 3's can be hard to come by, because party bag fillers, by their nature are usually small items, and are therefore only suitable for children over the age of 3.

For a while we've stocked bath themed toddler party bags, consisting of a plastic mug (dolphin, penguin or seal) filled with 1 or 2 squeezy bath fish.  We've recently been asked by customers if we can do the bath filled party bag with other kinds of mugs, for example, lion or tiger....and as there's no reason why not, we've expanded the range to include all our animal mugs, and renamed the product Toddler Party Bag.

The squeezy fish are suitable for babies over 3 months of age and the mugs are for children aged 2 and above.  If you are looking for party bags for babies, you can buy a filled party bag with the squeezy fish only.

Summer Party Bags

Yesterday, like much of July this year, was a very grey, gloomy I cheered myself up by putting together some new filled party bags.

There are princess party bags, happy zoo party bags, lots of different party bags for boys, a beautiful flower party bag, and the lovely summertime special party bags, like the one on the left.

Happy Days

Woo hoo!  Today we're celebrating our 5000th order since we moved website hosts in August 2007. Well, I say celebrating, but it's a day like any other - but it's always nice to reach a new milestone...I wonder when we'll reach 6000?

Most of today will be spent printing our best selling and much loved personalised cotton party bags.  These are such a hit with customers because they are eco friendly, long lasting and of fantastic quality.  Each one can be individually tailored to your requirements, with your choice of character, and either a name or a message of your choice.

They're proving very popular at the moment for use as wedding activity bags for children.

Farm Animals - Party Bag Fillers

We've just taken delivery of some gorgeous new party bag fillers - farm animal toys in 6 assorted designs - including a donkey, shire horse, cow, pig, sheep and a dog.  They really are cute, and quite chunky, so would make a perfect party bag filler or prize.

These farm animals complete our range of animal figures, which also include assorted zoo animals and a charming range of cartoon-style dinosaur toys.

New Personalised Party Bag

Due to popular demand, we have expanded our range of  personalised party bags even further, with the addition of a simple printed cotton bag.

This bag is printed in-house with your name or message, and makes a wonderful, environmentally friendly party bag, gift bag or hen party bag.

If you like this style of personalised bag, but prefer something a little different, you could try our hand personalised party bags, which are always very popular. They are hand painted and the result is a flexible, 3D effect name.

Lots more party bags!

I've just added some more party bags which I think are perfect for summer - none more so than the beautiful butterfly and dragonfly loot bags pictured here.

We also have some pretty flower loot bags, and some lovely princess party bags in the shape of a handbag.  For the boys, we have a new line in camouflage print party bags and a new pirate loot bag.

You can see all these and more in our party bags section, and if you're suck for ideas of what to put in them - we have plenty of party bag fillers to choose from!

Lotsa Loot Bags!

You know those fiddly jobs that have to be done, but you just keep putting off?  Well, I'm pleased to say I've just finished one of those - updating the party bags section.  The loot bags in particular have been hanging around my office waiting to be sorted and uploaded, including lots of new cello loot bags, like the one pictured.

 We're phasing out the character loot bags and replacing them with generic, themed loot bags (fairies, dinosaurs, pirates etc), so you'll find most of our licensed character loot bags reduced to half price, so why not pop along for a bargain?
