Ok, I found these cute bags at Michael’s for a $1 each last week, check it out:

What do you guys think would be a good gift to fit in them? I want to use them for my bridesmaids but I’m not quite sure. They’re small which kinda sucks. I was thinking maybe a manicure/pedicure set? I want to get them other gifts, maybe pick up shoes or jewelry for the day for them, but these were too cute to pass up. Anyone have ideas?

It’s hard to tell what size they are from the picture, but could you fit the jewelry in them? I like the idea of a mani pedi kit too.

Sorry, I didn’t think of the size not being clear in the picture. They’re about the size of a cd case, maybe a little smaller!

Are they wearing heels for your wedding? What about foot petals? the mani pedi kit sounds cute and maybe some lipgloss or something?

How about making an emergency kit for things they might need the day of the wedding? Clear nail polish for nylon runs, breath mints, a sewing kit, bandaids, aspirin…
Or, you could include something personal to each BM…maybe their favorite chapstick, lipgloss, hair jewelry, or some small token of your appreciation–perhaps a gift card to their favorite store?

foot petals! Yes! Excellent.
Thank you both, I like all of these ideas! We’ll have to see how many of them I can stuff into each bag LOL

What about a cute keepsake necklace?? Try http://www.modernluxuri.com they have a bridal collection geared toward this kind of thing. Keepsake jewelry made especially for bridesmaids, flower girls, mother of the bride, etc. They’re really cute; it could be a way for you to make each tote a little more personal!
