Im so excited, because I ordered these beautiful totes from a seller on Etsy, and they came in today!!! 🙂
I have been shopping around to find fun (and affordable) things to fill my bridesmaids totes with. All of them are in college or college aged (except the junior Bridesmaid or Best Man who is in high school) so I was trying to find things they would use.
I hit up the after Christmas Sale at Victoria Secrets and got all of them a set of one of the fragrances from PINK with a body scrub, lotion and body spray. Did I mention I got all 4 of them this for $35?? 🙂
I went on Sephora.com and ordered all the ladies a mini emergency kit (which are fabulous, I got one for myself too!) after christmas and they were $4.50 a piece.
I had a few coupons/giftcards to Victoria Secrets so I stopped by today again. I was considering getting them all robes to wear the morning of the wedding while they got their hair done, but I honestly didn’t think they would ever get used again and didn’t want to shell out the cash. Instead I found these adorable cropped yoga pants (like leggings) and a bunch of new Mint/light blue colored shirts (one of my wedding colors!). I ended getting each girl a pair of yoga pants a different tank top/shirt to wear.
I was going to add a few snacks and a current issue of COSMO for the College ladies and Seventeen for the high schooler to read while getting their hair done
What do you Bee’s think of the BM’s gifts?

I’m in the middle of strugglign to find gifts for my bridesmaids and I think you did a great job on a budget. I’d be really happy to receive somethign like that…
In fact – I’d be on bandwagon and do something similar for my ladies, except one of them is a tomboy (no makeup/jewelry/girly mags for her).
So it’s back to the drawing board.

@dragonlover: My bridesmaids are an interesting mix between girly and tomboy-ish. Thats why I ended up going with sweats instead of the satin monogramed robes that are really popular, because almost everyone loves a comfy sweat outfit 🙂 Best of luck finding Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts though, I know it can be a challenge sometimes
@gelaine22: Thank you!

Adorable! I slurged on some ridiculously amazing earrings for my girls so I kind of got stuck not doing much else, but I DID just find some super cute monogrammed notepads and maganets in the dollar bin at Micheal’s. Score!

@navywifenmoore: In terms of magazines, you could perhaps add an issue of People or something like that. It’s something I would never buy myself, but it’s certainly a guilty pleasure when I go to cut my hair of have a manicure. 🙂
Apart from that, the totes look great!
