Girl, I hear you!

So far, I have for them:

personalized tote bags

custom made robes


foldable flats

and hair & makeup the day of the wedding

Just last night, I was looking at makeup bags for them. What is wrong with me??! I can’t stop shopping for them, and we still have 8 months to go!

Someone STOP ME!!!!

Girl, you need FI to hide your credit cards! LOL .. I think those gifts sound really wonderful, I’d be so happy to receive them! 

But now you need to stop while you’re ahead! You’re about one gift away from being on a Suze Orman special.. hahaha Wink

I can’t stop either.  It’s so fun shopping for them.

It helps to remind myself that they are travelling 🙂

@MrsJenBee:  I’m doing a little spa kit for the girls with bubble bath, bath salts, some of my favorite beauty products (favorite cuticle gel, lancome eyeliner, nail polish), and then individual gifts. Like for my Maid/Matron of Honor, I’m getting her Kate Spade stuff because she loves Kate Spade, for one of my bridesmaids her obsession is crazy patterns so I am just buying her stuff with crazy grandma patterns on it (sounds weird, but trust me, she’ll love it), for another I’m planning on a tote bag full of books, etc. For the boys, instead of a spa kit they’re getting a travel bath products kit in one of those bags that has a hangar on it so you can hang it in the bathroom at your travel destination, and then individual gifts. I dunno what because especially my fiance’s bffs I don’t necessarily know what they would want. My fiance isn’t being super helpful though on that front.
