I think you have plenty of things in there already!  Are you wanting to add something to fill up the bag more, or is there another reason?  If you want to fill up the bag, put in some fun colored/patterned tissue paper to give it some pop.  You could make them a little “bridesmaids survival kit” for use on the big day… bandaids, tylenol, chapstick, needle/thread, a little snack, tissues, etc. and put it in a cute little bag.

For what it’s worth, I’m only giving my attendants (and the two moms) two things – pashminas, since it will be October, and wristlets that I designed myself at a design your own purse party.

Maybe something food related so they can snack on it if they get hungry. I don’t know if you’re all getting ready together, but if you are then they could snack on something while waiting for everyone.

This Web site does really cute gift boxes, maybe you can take a look and get an idea of something else to add. http://www.bentoboxgifts.com/

i totally like the idea of bridesmaid survival kit… or maybe you could get them each a lip gloss.

i think everything you have done so far is great- especially the lands end totes.  you have lucky bridesmaids!

What you have sounds pretty good. I like the idea of a snack-a bag of pretzels or fruit snacks or an energy bar.

I think you have enough gifts for them but I also like the idea of a bridesmaid survival kit or maybe some sweets. Great job!

It sounds like you have plenty. If you’re trying to fill up the bag, just put some fun tissue paper to give it a pop of color.

Snacks! Definitely — luna bars are delicious and come in pretty colored packaging. There are so many other things you could put in the bags for them to munch on.

Chapstick/lip gloss and gum — your maids will love you for this. These are two things my friends and I forget most often. With all the pictures, chatting and eating these will be lifesavers.

And, if you really want  to make them giggle, perhaps get each one of those little baby bottles of liquor. They aren’t that expensive. You could tie it to their flip flops with a little note about how to make their feet stop hurting. 🙂

The gifts you already have sound great!  I would try to get them something that they can enjoy after the wedding, as opposed to something for the actual wedding day.  Having something different and personalized for each girl might be nice too – like a bottle of wine for the wine aficionado, a cookbook for the baker in the group, and a mani/pedi gift certificate for the glam girl?  That way each girl will know you are thinking especially of her.

it seems like a great fit already !!  But if i was to add something, I’dd add a personalized card/note thanking them personally and how much they mean to you.  🙂

I think what you have sounds really nice.  A nice personalized note would be a nice gesture.

it sounds like a lovely gift bag that you’ve put together.. if you’re looking for something else b/c you couldn’t take them to mani/pedi how about a little bag w/ some foot lotion or scrub and nail polish?
