Bridesmaid "goody bag" ideas
Okay, so I've finally decided that for my wedding I want to get my ladies a monogrammed bag from a local store. Its very nice quality and many different styles for only 10 dollars. Here's the question... What are some things that I can put in the bags? I want to buy the stuff a little at a time so that I can actually give them a lot of stuff because they have really stepped up and have been there for me through some of my bad times in life. Thanks in advance for the help!

The Bridesmaid Survival Kit was made just for you,
So you can be cared for all the day through.
Lotion to keep your hands from getting dry,
A packet of tissues in case you should cry.
Lip gloss in case your lips should chap,
You know this bride is watching your back!
Clear nail polish in case you get a run
A disposable camera to capture some fun.
A nail file to prevent those runs I mentioned before,
I want to prepare you for what may be in store.
Hairspray to keep your hair in place,
A mirror to check out your beautiful face.
Band-Aids in case your shoes aren’t feeling okay,
Or you can just take them off and dance the night away!

Some hugs and kisses for my favorite girls,
You are my best friends in the whole wide world.
Thank you so much for all you have done,
Your support, your love, and all of the fun!
I hope this kit helps you and brings you some glee,
It’s just a little thanks from the bride-to-be..

cut and paste the lines you like...

lotions, cute bracelets, body sprays (Victoria Secret's Semi-Annual Sale should still be going on); I would go to the dollar section at a Walmart or Target and fill it up with some of their products. You can buy wholesale headbands..tons of stuff. Think of the you'd use.

other items: gum, wisps, mints, airline alcohol bottles, flip flops, bottle opener, lint remover, antacid, 5 hr energy, tide pen, condom(?) not sure if you wanted some "fun" items in there...

Items for a hangover kit:
- A multi-vitamin pack
- An Electrolyte Sport Drink Mix
- Cracker Six Pack (peanut butter or cheese- yum)
- water bottle
- Alka-Seltzer® - Two Pack
- Aspirin - Two Pack 325 mg (Don't include Tylenol as that interacts negatively with any alcohol left in the system.)
- toothbrush (have any left over from your last dentist visit?) - Toothpaste
- Wet Wipes - Two Packets (to freshen up)
- Breath Mint

Make them a painted wine glass???

I was hoping to do the same thing and a few things I thought of were:

Flip flops to wear while getting ready/at the reception
I'm going to make each of them a necklace, hair clip and bracelet to wear the day of
And some things from a "wedding day survival kit"... These usually include:

Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Mints, Drinking Straw, Pain Reliever, Antacid, Hand Lotion, Emery Board, Clear Nail Polish, Nail Polish Remover, Facial Tissues, Deodorant, Tampons, Adhesive Bandages, Hair Brush, Hair Spray, Bobby Pins, Interior Mirror, Lint Remover, Mending Kit, Scissors, Safety Pins, Stain Remover, Static Remover, Super Glue, Double-Sided Hem Tape, Earring Backs, Corsage Pins, and Extra Wedding Bands

I don't know if I'll put all those things but, whatever I think will be useful for them.

Ohh I was also going to do custom hangers for their dresses but I'm just going to paint their names on the wooden part so I'll probably put that in there too.

Haha. Love the hangover kit. And all of my girls would love it and find the humor in it since we all have partied together!

Edith: The flip flops are a great idea! :) Maybe even decorate them with the date and bridesmaid/maid of honor. :)

I went shopping at bath and body like a week or so ago with their 75% off sale. I have 10 BM and i got them each a travel size body spray, travel size lotion, those neat little hand sanitizers, and their famous mini candles, all for about $60. I will have to post pics later.
