To the Bees:
I have officially put together my Bridesmaid “special attraction” and all for under 150 bucks for ALL 4 bridesmaids. (After seeing all the awesome gifts to the maids on here I just HAD to figure out a way to fit it in Fiance and my budget)
Earring Set for them to choose what fits them best
Flip Flops for when their fsore feet (2 girls got the wrong size shoe… eek)
Cosmetic Bag: (survival kit)
Single Pack Advil
Mini Dove Deoderant
Make Up Remover (for end of day)
Tissue just for the occassion (same tissue I’ll use for my “tears of joy”)
Some Orbit Gum (because it’s my fav)
And All together we Got:
YaY!.. Now just to order and make a run to the local market =)

Cute but I also would put in safety pins, blotting tissue for lipstick, tide stain remover pen, static guard, needle and thread.

none of my girls sew, or would use the needle/thread… so I think that one should be good to hold off on.. lol
They’re wearing dark dresses, do you think the stain remover is really needed?.. can we use that on dark satin?
Blotting Tissue work the same with lipgloss? none of us are lipstick wearers so I wouldn’t know
and definitely gotta snag some static guard… do they make travel size? I’ve never bought or used it.

Love it! You could get the “Mini-Mergency” kits instead though! They’ve got a bucnh of the same stuff (around $13) http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P282026&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=6013
Edit: Also, I’m putting together a monster bag with stuff that isn’t like “personal” so anyone who needs it can use it, rather than getting an individual “everything” for them. It saves $$!

@runsyellowlites: Yes they do I bought some for my BM’s at Target and my girls are also wearing dark dresses I did get them the stain removal just in case for like deo stain. The needle and thread would be just in case of lose thread but you could also just use the saftey pins.
Let me see if can remember what I put in mine
Clear nail polish
File/mini nail clipper
little mirror /brush
Tide stain removal pen
mini tooth brush/paste

@M.Ruder Oh Oh Oh… THAT’s great!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I still wanna get the cosmetic bags b/c I think the colors fit the girls but I’ll just take all the goods out of the silver one. =)

@Sassygrn I’ll have to snag the static gaurd and toss it in with the Sephora packs =)

=(…. adding that stuff/getting the Sephora packs puts me OVER budget….
I need the absolute bare essentials…
From experience what DOESN’T get used?
Maybe I can add the “rarely used” to MY “stay in the dressing room” kit and the ladies can just snag it from there?….

You could always do what M.Ruder said just have a monster bag or just have for example the static guard one instead one for each girl. I know the mini ones at target were like 2.00 a piece.

I just had my wedding…the only thing my girls used from the emergency kits I packed for them…which I spent a ton of money on…was their lip gloss, perfume, and jewlery. I added tissues, hand sanitizer, mint, static remover, saftey pins, qtips, bandaids, hairspray, bobby pins, tampons (who knows thats a scary uhoo) all kinds of goodies…it was a gift bag at the end of the night for them to go home with….but honestly if I could do it over again Id just do the lipgloss, jewlery, deoderant, and perfume and throw in some flip flops….I think your kit sounds awsome and wouldn’t add anything into
