My nephew is five. He likes farts.
Honestly, I don’t know if boys ever outgrow fart jokes. They just turn into men who download fart sound apps and their inner child laughs and laughs. Because to men and boys, farts are always funny.
To me? No. Not even when my nephew spent all Thanksgiving weekend making fart sounds in my (very straight) face.
But, I love my nephew. Love him enough to put together this homemade bag of reindeer farts cotton candy gift that he will absolutely love (even before he realizes that the farts are actually a sweet surprise)..
If you have little kids on your shopping list, this bag of farts would be the perfect addition to their Christmas stocking. This would also work as party favors for any holiday celebrations you’re attending. Or heck, you could even bring it to a white elephant gift exchange.
The possibilities are endless … as long as you have friends with a sense of humor. Because of course reindeer farts aren’t for everyone.
To make it easier for you, I have a free printable in this post for the topper, so you don’t have to design any whimsical packaging yourself. You just have to download the topper and print it, then follow the rest of the tutorial to make the perfect gift for your fart fan.
This bag of reindeer farts makes the perfect stocking stuffer for a young boy or girl. For more small gift ideas, check out our stocking stuffers for kids gift guide. You’ll find excellent stocking stuffers, like books, small toys, candy, and more.
Homemade Bag Of Reindeer Farts Cotton Candy Gift

We make this with a store-bought bag of cotton candy. Of course, if you had a cotton candy machine, you could make your own and use it in this treat.
How To Make A Homemade Bag Of Reindeer Farts Cotton Candy Gift:
Print out the Reindeer Farts topper.
Use a paper trimmer (or pair of scissors, if you don’t have one) to cut out the topper. Set it aside.
Open the ziptop plastic bag and fill it three-quarters full with cotton candy. Close the bag via the ziptop.
Fold down the top of the ziptop bag and tape it down.
Fold the the Reindeer Farts topper in half. Fill out the To and From on the back.
Put the topper over the bag, making sure that the design is facing the blank side of the bag and the back is facing the side of the bag with any writing on it. Add a staple on each side of the treat topper.
Personally, I made sure to not actually staple through the bag in case any escaping air would cause the cotton candy to deflate and harden. If you’re not worried about that, you could add an extra staple in the middle.
Free Printable Reindeer Farts Gift Tag:
To make your life easier, we designed the Reindeer Farts topper and have it available for you for free. Quick legal note: This is available free of charge for personal use. If you’re making these unique gifts for your own Christmas stockings, print as many as you need. We’re not giving anyone permission to use these commercially, so please, if you run a small business, don’t print them and sell them at your local Christmas markets this holiday season.
Now, with that being said, the topper is designed to print on an 8.5- x 11-inch piece of printer paper and to fit a 7-inch ziptop bag. So, you’ll want to save the download below to your computer, then print it at home — in color — whenever you’re ready for the craft.
Only one topper fits per sheet, so make sure you have enough paper before you start printing.
Reindeer Fluffy Bag Topper
My nephew, who I made this for originally, and his brother have really been into Bluey the last few years. What I learned at Thanksgiving is that Bluey calls farts “fluffy.” So, I actually made a Reindeer Fluffy bag tag when I originally made this craft.
If anyone wants that version, I can create a downloadable file too.
Bag Of Reindeer Fars: Frequently Asked Questions
As long as your sandwich bag has a ziptop to close it, you can use it to make this treat.
We don’t recommend a sandwich bag that you have to close with a twist tie because that will allow air in and may harden the cotton candy before your recipient gets to eat it.
We purchased cotton candy in two ounce bags and we used two full ounces split between two bags and those bags were 3/4 of the way full. So, we recommend a full ounce per bag.
We used rainbow sherbet cotton candy because of the fun colors. You could use peppermint-flavored cotton candy, which is holiday themed because of the flavor.
If neither appeals to you, you could use mini marshmallows instead. Personally, I think marshmallows would pass better as snowman farts, which would also be an epic stocking stuffer for your fart fan. Maybe I’ll have to design that one for my nephew for next year.
Purchase Bags Of Reindeer Farts Online:
For obvious reasons, you can’t buy genuine reindeer farts online. Actually, maybe you can. I didn’t look into it, but this world is weird and you can find anything online. However, with that being said, if you want to give cotton candy reindeer farts as gag gifts, but you just don’t have time to make them, there are a variety of options (like the peppermint cotton candy Reindeer Farts bag above) online at the following stores:
Be mindful of a store’s minimum cart total to qualify for free shipping. Since we are getting close to Christmas, you’ll want to double check delivery times too to assure they’ll arrive before the holiday. Consider instore or curbside pickup (where available) to avoid paying shipping charges and to potentially get your items quicker.

If you’re making these as stocking stuffers, and you want a similar but different holiday gift for people who are less fond of farts, check out our Snowman Snack Mix. That’s basically trail mix with marshmallows added.
There’s a free printable for the bag tag in that post as well. It’s exactly the same size as this Reindeer Farts bag tag, so you can use the same sized ziptop plastic bags for both treats.
