Default In need of Bunco ideas for favors

Hello! I joined a Bunco group several months ago and I am hosting for the first time March 9. I have small white bags that I want to use to make favors. Favors are not required, but I thought it would be fun! I am going to punch out black circles and glue them to the bags to make them resemble dice. What has me stumped is what to put in the bags! The women like bowls of chocolate and nuts at the Bunco tables and we have a dessert after we are done playing, so I was looking for non-sweet ideas. Does anyone have any? The bags are 6" tall and 3" wide. Thank you!

On the food track and inexpensive - could you maybe pop some corn at home? Personally I like to eat the stuff completely plain but you could add a bit of salt or maybe something like chili for some savoury, spicy heat.

Something in the toiletries line maybe? Guest (small) soaps or a scoop of bath crystals? My local 1 shop (like your dollar stores) sometimes has pretty candles or nightlights, those might do the trick.

What about small notepads to put in the bags? You could "alter" the fronts with paper, ribbons, etc. Lots of ideas for these on pinterest.

Here's a few non-food ideas:
- Some travel-size hand cream
You can find it in any pharmacy or grocery store, and it's not the kind of thing that will break the bank, but it's a perfect little thing to put in a purse or coat pocket.
- Mini post-its and golfing pencils.
You can find a whole bunch of small (2x2") post-its at Target or Walmart. They often come in a bigger pack that you can open and divide up. I found golfers' pencils in the sports aisle of my local Target and they're the perfect size to stick in a treat bag.
- Good luck charms
A lot of stores around here have St Patrick's Day goodies on display. You could probably find a bunch of little four-leaf clover or pot-o-gold trinkets that might work. My local Target has four-leaf clover stickers and erasers in the 1$ section that are cheap and easy to pick up.

If you do want to give food, I would go with mini pretzels or popcorn as a fun snack option. If allergies are not an issue, you could even make your own trail mix with various nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cereal and chocolate chips.

Oh, wow! Thank you so much! I LOVE these ideas! I have been doing a lot of my and my extended family's taxes lately, so my creative side is rusty right now LOL. Thank you again - I really appreciate these great ideas. I knew I could come here for the perfect answers!
