Gifts

Coach was having a HUGE sale today and I got my girls makeup bags for a steal...only $23!! I feel like the makeup bags alone aren't that great of a gift and want to fill them with other things. Any suggestions on what to put in? I know makeup is a bad idea since everyone has different skin, but what else can I put in a makeup bag?

    Gift cards to sephora or some place else they like. It doesn't have to be make up related, just as long as it fits their own personalities. So if one of them loves to read, get a barnes and noble gift card, or a movie person would get a netflix membership, etc.

    I personally hate gift cards. I find them super impersonal. You can put in little neckalces or bracelets or hair things. You can roll up a tank or t-shirt. you can put candy in there.

    I agree on the giftcards, I feel like it's an easy way out. Thanks for the suggestions! I was thinking of getting some lip glosses from Victoria's Secret and miniature lotions/perfumes to stick in there, I didn't think of the jewelry! Good idea!

    Ditto PP about the gift cards. But maybe you could stick in certificates for all of you to get a mani/pedi before or after the wedding. 

    Perhaps the jewelry could be something  they can wear at the wedding. 

    Love the idea of make up bags though.

    <div>VS sells rollerballs with their fragrances that would fit perfectly in a makeup case.  I am probably going to get one for my sister (MOH) since she loves fragrances.  I think they are $10 each, and you could different scents for each girl.</div>

    You could also do something to personalize the bags themselves - when my sister got married, she gave us really cute tote bags with our initials embroidered on them.
