    I wouldn’t use it but I also don’t use them. If they would use them and go for it 🙂

    @gcassioppi:  I would rather have a regular tote or a clutch, IMO

    Another poster said shop for Bridesmaids as if it’s their birthday… which I believe is brilliant logic!

    Would you gift a lunch tote for a birthday?

    Would you gift the same gifts (even if it’s a different pattern) for their birthday?

    That said… my answer would be no. I believe you should think about each Bridesmaid and base your gift on their likes and personality.

    Best Wishes!

    @gcassioppi:  I for one think they’re cute, but find them kinda odd as BM gifts. Maybe if you put things inside? Like snacks or a mini bottle of wine? Or things to “feed the soul” like a heartfelt letter?

    @gcassioppi:  I think I’d rather have an overnight bag. I wouldn’t use that but I’d def use an overnight bag. Maybe a bigger version of that bag! I likethe idea of what pp mentioned above….it would be cute to put things in and then give as a gift!

    @gcassioppi:  I can’t tell you how many pieces of lunch carrying devices I’ve received as gifts over the years. I guess anyone who works is perceived to need items to help them lunch.

    Have not used one of them.

    Personally I really don’t like it.  It seems more suited to a 12 year old girl!

    I think it’s cute but I definitely would not have it monogrammed. No one in the adult world I occupy, has their name on anything.

    FI’s SIL got me a tote with my name on it for christmas from thirtyone and I like it. She put stuff inside of it too, which was nice. I don’t think I own anything else that has my name on it…but honestly I think it’s really sweet. But I agree with others that you shouldn’t get the lunch tote, a regular tote would be cool.
