    I love the idea but I’m not sold on the bag.

    What about a tote or something similar? You could still fill it with the lotion and other swim essentials, but the bag would be more versatile.

    That bag just doesn’t seem very “gifty” to me. So I voted keep looking.

    If you’re getting them totes already for the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, then that’s still two bags even if it’s not a “tote”… I’d go in a different direction for the shower hostess gifts and put the beach idea into the totes… also, if your BM’s are the ones throwing the shower, it might be better to put the money towards that gift and make it even nicer… maybe just a small piece of jewelry or flowers as a thank you gesture.

    I was going to suggest jewelry or something for the wedding since they are your bridesmaids too. I didn’t know you were already giving them a tote so yea two totes wouldn’t make snese, but Lauren is right. This would still be two bags.

    I did this for my bridesmaids!  I got my girls a beach bag, beach towel, flip-flops, sunscreen, body spray, and then found a nice, individual gift for each of them – an iPod for one, sunglasses for another, and a couple of books for the other.

    It seems like a lot, but I did this (along with buying their jewelry and paying for lodging) as their Bridesmaid or Best Man gift since my wedding is on the beach.  🙂  I made them each a gift bag of B&BW stuff for their shower gift.

    Whatever you do, they’ll love it!  🙂  Good luck!
