After struggling to think of something to give my girls, I have finally thought of something that I think will be really loved (and used everyday). I was going to buy us all pretty dressing robes to wear while we are getting ready but they’ve already ordered some 🙂
I have spent the past couple of visits to their houses keeping note of the types/brands of beauty products they each use and I have come up with a list of things I’d like to get them- all their own individual brands.
– Eye liner
– Bronzer powder (all my girls love wearing bronzer!)
– 2 x Revlon nail polish colours (in colours that I know they love)
– Nail polish remover
– Body moisturiser (they all use the same Nivea one, funnily enough!)
– A Revlon lip gloss in a neutral tone
– A tin of solid perfume in their favourite scents
Then I would put in a little tote bag with headache tablets, bandaids, clear lip gloss and tissues to use on the wedding day.
I’ve estimated that it will cost about $70 per box. I have also bought their dress, jewellery, hair and makeup.
I would package it all up in a box like this (each with a different coloured ribbon)

I would LOVE to get that as a gift!!! The only thing I can think of besides that, is maybe throw in something they haven’t used before so you arent just restocking things they already have… but I’m terrible at gift giving so feel free to ignore me lol. That’s so awesome how well you know your girls!

Wow, how thoughtful of you! That takes a lot of planning! $70 worth of body products does sound like a lot, and I for one would still be totally jazzed to receive a gift like that even if you had to drop a couple of the items.

I would be thrilled and the packaging is adorable!

I think it’s a great gift!
Edited to add, while the box is cute, if you’re giving this gift to be used at your wedding, I would pick a less bulky box or container for them to carry around.

Cute! I love beauty products….maybe putting the goodies in a cute makeup bag so it can be easily carried?

Hey ladies, thanks for your comments 🙂
Inside the box ill put a little makeup bag for use on the day, the box is more to store the bulkier products like the moisturizer etc, which they won’t take with them on the day 🙂
We’re getting our hair/ makeup professionally done so the gifts are more for use after the wedding 🙂
