    Maybe some type of perfume or body spray?

    Foldable flats

    Mini compact mirror


    And yes, maybe some chocolates!

    @lovelove1028:  I think a hair tie is a REALLY good idea. The FIRST thing I want to do after a long night dancing is tie my hair up. If it’s not too much, foldable flats is also a great idea. I think Dr. Scholl’s even makes sort of “one or two time use” ones that are like $8. Even if they just put them on in the car for the walk into the house/to the hotel room, it’s perfect!

    @lovelove1028:  what about blister block? I love that stuff! It’s Band-Aid brand and you rub the little stick on parts of your feet prone to get blisters. 


    I also think bobby pins are a must, especially if they will be putting their hair up. Personally, I would like floss since I’m always getting food stuck in my teeth. 


    Also include a sweet note!

    I think band aids are a good idea for people who will be wearing new shoes.

    That is a really sweet and thoughtful gift! There are lists of what are in Bridesmaid emergency kits available online.  Russell and Hazel has a good list, I don’t have the link but just google for their templates and you’ll find them.

    I would try to add things that would be useful overall, not just for the wedding.  But one thing you could add is a small card with a needle and some thread in their dress color, but you could probably just as easily have that in your own kit.

    @lovelove1028:  I bought my blister block at Target. May actually be something to give them before they put their shoes on. It works really well

    Definitely bandaids and hairties. I would also suggest safety pins (big and little) — you never know when you’ll need one. Maybe a travel-size hairspray, if they’re going to be having up-dos?

    I was thinking about going to the department store and getting perfume samples in great perfumes to put in mine.  Some of the brands have nice little bottles and I love having one of these in my purse for a night out. I am hoping my bridesmaids will too! 

    Also, bandaids are great, but moleskin is heaven sent. If you put a couple pre-cut pieces of molekin in there in case they get blisters, you will be a hit.

    @lovelove1028:  First of all, SO SO cute. I like the idea someone said about the foldable flats. Party City (of all places) has a TON.

    I added mini sewing kit, nail polish, mini lint roller, safety pins, tampon – just in case!, band aids, granola bar and hershey chocolate bar. Those blister blocks are a great idea, have to look into it! Other stuff: mini compact, bobby pins, disposable razor, q-tips, comb, advil, tums, mints, etc!
