A lady I work with sells purses and totes. I had a party because she convinced me that getting my BM cinch sacks would be great. I was able to sell enough at the party so I got all 5 for free. That was nice.
I am giving each BM a cinch sack w/ slippers inside that they can wear at the reception and some toiletries and goodies inside. I am now thinking that I don’t like the gift. It seems choldish to me and I am having 2nd thoughts. We are 27 and I think I don’t like the gifts. IDK. What do you think? What should I do instead? Here’s are a couple pictures. The patterns aren’t the exact same, but you get the point.

They are cute and would be good for the pool, beach or even a summer outing. I think you could still use them especially since they were free. Perhaps you could put some lotions or candles or other small items specific to each BM inside each bag.

Sorry, I just re-read the post…..I think if you are adding goodies, it’s fine! Sorry for not reading thoroughly 🙁

I think its cute. If you were just going with the tote then it wouldn’t be so hot, but since you are putting things inside its a great idea. Maybe throw a necklace in there they can wear for the ceremony?? If I was a BM I would like the gift. I was just in a wedding as a BM and didn’t get anything like that…It’s cute and you put thought into it!

I like the idea of adding candles. I didn’t think of that. I just don’t know. I’m confused.

I think they’re cute. Maybe you could have them embroidered with the girls initials so that they are more personal. Then, fill them up with goodies, depending on the size.

I think they are a little plain and childish as you had mentioned.

So what can I do with the cinch sacks to make them a good gift? They were free so I don’t have to use them. I can get them each a clutch in their fav color? IDK.

I like your idea,especially if you are adding extra goodies. I am sure your girls will appreciate after a few hours of dancing in high heels.

It reminds me of a sleepover. I think because of the slippers. I would say still give it to the BM’s but def add more to it or give them another gift with it. What else are you going to do with 5 of them?

I think the slippers (or flip flops) will go over well, as will the other goodies. However, the cinch sack reminds me of middle and high school. In fact, my daughter and my niece both have sacks exactly like that. I think if you put the items in a different kind of tote, the gift would go over better.

Depending on how big the tote is, if I were to get it as a gift, I would use it for gym clothes/sneakers. Or, since it’s probably vinyl, it would be good for bad weather.
I think they are cute!

I am a person who is addicted to tote bags. I think these would be all right. I have one that I use for my gym stuff and I really like it! You could get them monogrammed. You could do tote bags. Old Navy has them on sale from time to time and they are really reasonable. Also, check Etsy. I don’t know how much you want to spend, but there’s a seller on there (sewblessedbyjeneice) that I really like! I ordered a big tote bag from her for school stuff and I love it. You could do one of the medium sized ones.
Something that I really liked that I got as a BM gift was a manicure set. They got them from Crabtree and Evelyn, and they were pretty reasonable!
Also, Bath and Body Works is having a really good sale right now, you could get some bath items.
