My son will be one on the 24th of March. I am only inviting friends of mine with children close in age (youngest being 6 months and oldest 2 1/2 years old) I need some ideas for age appropriate items for goody bags. NO CANDY though. Should the items be more aimed for the parents liking, like mini hand sanitizers, little picture frames, and cute stationary? What about bubbles?

Instead of candy try using animal crackers, fruit snacks things that you can buy in bulk but are still fun to eat for kids :)

I just did this a couple weeks ago. I had a wide range of ages to tend to, so it was a little different. They ranged from 6 months to 13 years old. I just went to the dollar store and got the little goodie bags and got some candy and little toys, fun hair stuff for the older girls, and they kids couldn't have been happier. I stressed about it for a while thinking I was going too cheap. The kids didn't care. They had a blast and were just happy to get something. Go with cute kid stuff. Bubbles, bouncy balls, stickers....stuff like that.

Yeah I would put in crafty type things...crayons, note paper etc, and make it up for each individual child if you can since there is such a big difference in their ages :-)

1st birthdays are so exciting! It depends on what your budget is and how many children you have attending really. At my daughters 1st birthday I didn't worry about the children under 1, for the children that were over 1 I put in balloons, crayons and little note pads, for the boys I got them a match box car each, for the girls (depending on age) some costume jewellery, or a my little pony. I also put stickers, and some bubble in.
