Party bag fillers for adults

Hi, I have two birthday parties coming up for both of my sons, 6 weeks apart. I really love to make party bags and would like to make some for the adults attending too. So i'm looking for inspiration for adult party bag fillers if anyone has any ideas? Many thanks!

    Nice small chocolate, like green and blacks or divine are lovely. could put small bottles of alcohol too depending on budjet and recipient. i dont imagine theyll be expecting much really, and kids ones are usually just cheap bits and bobs - hard to replicate for an adult.

    Thank you for the first two replies, I am grateful for your suggestions and they have given me food for thought!

    I shouldn't feel the need to justify myself but I would just like to clarify that these party bags are for family members attending the parties, perhaps I should have been clear about this so that you didn't feel the need to comment. It's basically for grandparents and aunts and uncles, no single mums and no-one that is going to feel any pressure to reciprocate. As for it not being MSE, I think everyone has a right to spend their money on what they want to, if I didn't have the money to spend on this I wouldn't do it. And no it is not 'a thing', I don't expect the world to join me in doing it but it happens to be something I enjoy putting together, and what is the point in life if you can't do things you enjoy now and again?!

    That's a really nice idea, and the sort of thing I would do as well!

    It's not really that different to having wedding favours, so not too sure why some people are negative. I'm guessing bitterness due to never being invited to any parties (I wonder why :rotfl:)..

    The only other thing I can think of that hasn't been said already is votive candles.

    I’ve never understood why people do wedding favours.

    They just mean lots of clutter at home for the guests or an instant binning of things they don’t want. :(
