    I think bathroom baskets in general are a bit illogical. If I need deodorant, I’d put it on that morning, or if I need tampons, I always have some on me.

    I doubt men would use a bathroom basket.

    I love bathroom baskets! I have always like them when at events. Always so useful when I’m like shoot, my hair is falling down. Wow! Amazing magical hairspray right where I need it! I definitely want to bathroom baskets in my ladies room. I wondered the same thing about the men’s room though. I’m not sure exactly what to put in it? Men’s cologne? Male smelling hair spray? I’m going to have to ask a guy and get back to this!

    I don’t think men will care the slightest bit about baskets!

    IMO bathroom baskets are a huge waste of money for both sexes

    I’m planning to do a male basket but it’s going to only have stuff like gum, mints, mouthwash, deoderant, and some meds (aspirin, stomach meds, etc.).  I figure at the most it’ll be helpful for someone, and at the worst it won’t get used and it’ll be things we use at home.

    @drod:  i had bathroom baskets for both men and ladies and the men’s was used more than the women’s.

    I agree that they are a waste. I would save my money. I see most people say that they are rarely (if ever) used.

    I don’t think the men’s basket would be very useful.

    I have never actually been to an event that had a bathroom basket, but I have been to plenty where I could have used some gum or an extra hair pin but due to my fancy “going out” purse couldn’t pack it all with me. I am still torn on weather to do them for my wedding or not

    We did them for both sexes, mostly because DH felt left out haha.  In the men’s one we put cologne, spray-on deoderant, hair gel, and condoms lol

    I used to clean men’s bathrooms as part of my last peon job before starting my career.

    I once had to clean crap from the inside of a toilet paper dispenser. Not sure who managed it or how, but he defecated into the dispenser.

    So I think a bathroom basket will be TOTALLY lost on your male guests!
