It is very much in style these days for a hen to give their party a goodie bag as a thank you for attending their last night (or weekend!) of freedom! This article is concentrating on Hen party gifts (we will have a separate post for the boys in a few weeks!).

Check out our hen party planning tips  if you are looking for help organizing your party :).

On average, a hen party will consist of around 12 ladies which means 12 goodie bags!
