I’m looking for some inexpensive Bridesmaids Gifts. I don’t want to go cheap, but we also don’t have 100’s of dollars to spend on Bridesmaids Gifts.
I love the personalized totes as gifts, and know that all my bridesmaids would love those as well, so I’d love to do those. Does anyone know where you can get good quality, inexpensive personalized totes? We’ll probably order them on-line (unless someone knows of a great store to go to – in Missouri area).
Here are my thoughts on what to do so far, but I’m open to more:
Personalized Tote (with initials or their name on it)
Flip flops for them to wear at the reception
Black clutch for them to carry day of
Maybe have survival kit inside clutch: Ibuprofen, Bobby pins, Chapstick, Lipstick, etc.
Any other ideas? We want to make them feel appreciated, but can’t break the bank to do it!
Any ideas would be very appreciated! : )

I’m doing some fun retro styled aprons for my girls. My mom is actually sewing them for me from old vintage patterns. I thought it would be fun to give each girl a slightly different one, plus it is using up a bunch of fun fabric I already had. I’m also giving them those wooden hangers with their names in wire (check them out on etsy… http://www.etsy.com/listing/54125953/personalized-wirewood-hanger)
Then I may throw in another thing or two, such as cute clutches or earrings, something…

i got my girls robes & cosmetic bags from etsy. The robes are monogrammed with their first initial & the bags have their first initial & first name overlapping. They turned out great! it was $46 for the set, but they’re $42 now. 🙂 their’s are black with fuschia monogramming & i got myself one that’s white with fuschia monogramming.
The etsy seller is: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ccbgknikolich
She also has the totes that you mentioned & monogramming is included in the prices.
Here’s a picture of one of the cosmetic bags (:

I bought monogrammed compact mirrors (buy one get one free @ monogrammedgifts.com), clutches, Lia Sophia earrings and some other small things. I’m really happy with what I got for my girls. 🙂

Hey! Another St. Louis bride!!! Yay!
I actually made my girls totes from a Butterick pattern I got at Hancock fabrics. Its super easy. They ended up costing about $10/bag, I think. They turned out adorable.
I also am doing robes that I got on sale and a friend of my mothers is embroidering the monograms on them.
In addition, they are getting:
Pashminas (from eBay, $4/scarf)
Footzy Rolls (to wear at the reception, around $20/pair)
Totes w/ emergency kit.
The robes are a special gift for them, I am going to get them little mani/pedi kits and some good hand a foot products to go with them. Maybe a candle or something. A little spa-kit, I guess.
