• Think Spring for Your Next Goodie Bag

Event bags are always a hit with guests. And while most parties can’t live up to the standard of celebrity gift bags (This year’s Academy Award gift bags included $20,000 worth of merchandise featuring a private dinner party at Morton’s steakhouse and a pair of Beamer Video Phones), us ‘regular people’ can have just as much fun with gifts for our guests. Themed bags are a consistently good idea, and we have just the thing for your upcoming spring soiree.

Spring weather can be so unpredictable. One minute it’s blue skies, the next it’s downpouring. The simple fix is an umbrella that can be easily stuffed into a purse or bag. Guests will love the gift’s utility, and the best part is the unlimited amount of designs you can pick from to match the theme of your spring soiree

We love this contemporary and effortlessly simple design by pare*umbrella.

Sunglasses are a must for spring when sunshine is finally starting to grace us with its presence. But it’s likely that most people already own a pair. Take a unique approach and pick one guests will get a kick out of.

These are perfect for spring with their floral arms, and these are a fun retro take on regular ol’ shades.

And speaking of sunshine, it’s time to start thinking skin protection. Throw in a mini sunscreen to show your guests you care. You can even personalize bottles for more fun.

Spring is the time for flora to bloom. Let guests create their own beautiful garden with flower seeds. For us, sunflowers seem to be the most fun, but anything that will brighten up a yard is sure to be a hit.

What spring-themed gifts do you think we missed?

Ten years ago, when celebrating the 10th anniversary of my company, Elias Events, I wrote an article about the 10 changes I witnessed over the years. Now at the 20-year mark, I feel the need to write another article. This time around the changes in the special events industry are astounding, and to say advances in technology are a driving force behind special events is an understatement.
