I would see about getting things that are catered to each bridesmaid’s individual tastes and interests.

How big are the totes, and how much do you want to spend?

Get a necklace/bracelet/earrings, a bottle of a favorite wine or sparking cider, a nice nail polish in their favorite shade, gift card to a favorite store or restaurant, etc.

I did totes for each girl with the following:
– a bottle of their favorite kind of wine from a local winery
– Nutella to go cup (basically a little plastic thing with Nutella and little biscuits to dip)
– chocolate to pair with the wine
– those foldable flats to change into
– a necklace that I made them
– pretty hanger for their dresses

They loved them. 🙂

@babybug0507:  I’m not doing totes (using a different type of container), but I’m going with the same “gift basket” type idea.

I’ll be filling mine with:

*short robes

*personalized hangers


*jewelry (specific to each girl and not to be used at the wedding)

*scented candles

*handmade (by me) slippers

*possibly a clutch OR an umbrella

@babybug0507:  Here is what I have gathered for my girls and I plan on getting a tote to put it all in 




robe with name in wedding color because our hair and makeup lady said we need to be in robes or button downs or she wouldn’t do our makeup and I hate buttondowns (NOT considering this part of their gift really but it’ll be in there) 




hand painted picture frames that best represent their personality (I am painting two for each girl based on the things I know they care about. One will have a picture of them and their SO and one will have a picture of myself and that girl) 




A necklace that matches their personality that is not for the wedding 




A nailpolish kit that is “ombre” in their favorite color 

Pashminas in their favorite color. They can wear them at the end of the night if they want but they are really because all of the girls but one live in a very cold climate and they will get a lot of use out of them 



Their favorite snack or candy to eat when they get hungry while getting ready 




One of the girls is trying to get pregnant so no alcohol!
