I've bought some lovely jute tote bags for my bridesmaids, with the letters to spell "Bridesmaid" stitched on to them, edged with lace that matches the detailing on their dresses. I'm going to fill them with little gifts almost like a "bridesmaid hamper", just wondered if anyone had suggestions for extra bits that could go in them?
So far I have bought the 3 of them "Wedding Fever" which is a pretty trashy, chick-lit sort of paperback but it's quite a feel good story about friendship and weddings, doesn't challenge anyones perception of the world or anything but nice light hearted book for Summer hols. I've also bought them the knickers from Debenhams with "Bridesmaid" printed across the bum.
Other ideas I thought of were pyjamas for the night before (we're all staying at my parents and I'll be giving them the bags that evening) although I'm sure they'll have bought something with them to sleep in! Perfume, lipstick/lipgloss, a magazine for reading in the hairdressers or on their way home the day after the wedding, a nail varnish that matches the colour they'll have for the wedding. I saw some little eyemasks with "Bridesmaid" stitched across, like the ones you're given to sleep on a plane, and they were really cute but does anyone actually ever USE those? lol. I thought also perhaps a pack of seeds that represent one of the flowers in their bouquet for them to plant when they get home?
Other ideas welcome!
