What goes in the sugar cone?

The name says it – as a filling for the sugar bag or school bag, cool gadgets for your room sweets are particularly suitable. You can not only give away sugar bags at the beginning of school but also, for example, for the start of your studies. What these are and what is suitable as a filling for school bags, we write here.

There is always an occasion

Of course, the first day of school is the main reason for a sugar cone. But there are other motives for giving away a school bag, even of a joking nature:


  • Change to a secondary school
  • Start of training at the vocational school
  • Start of studies at the university
  • At the beginning of the driving school
  • For the promoted colleague in his new position
  • With new teachers at the beginning of the first day of work

Of course, in these cases, decoration and contents, as well as the size of the bag, differ.

It is important that the bag must not become too heavy. Otherwise, the child will not be able to carry them or the bag will tear open.

Fillings for the start of school

Sweets / Food

  • Peanut flips (nice and light)
  • Rice waffles
  • The letter or number of cookies

Equipment for the school

  • Pens, a pencil case, erasers, ruler, pencil, fountain pen, sharpener
  • Lunch box, water bottle, sports bag, sports pants, T-shirt, school friends book

If you want to give your child a bigger or heavier gift, a small homemade voucher is a nice idea.

School bag filling for high school, high school, university, or training

In this case, your children are already older and need other things for both school and hobbies.
