Bridesmaid gift...

I was thinking about buying some decent priced tote bags and use them as the gift bags and put their other gifts down in there. Heres the tote I'm looking at:

Do you think this looks okay? Also I am worried I am not doing enough here is what I have got them:
Bath robes (my mother is embroidering their names on them)
Redken Shampoo and Conditioner
Victoria secret body wash and lotion and
bridesmaid tank tops

  • To be honest, I do not like that tote very much, it looks more like a shopping tote, than a cute young person tote, but that is just me.

    I think that those are some nice BM gifts.  If you want to add to that you can, but I don't think that you need to.
  • Yeah thats what I was thinking but I don't want to spend the 30.00 each on the nice ones.

  • I'm with Courtney. There are much better totes out there. But I like everything else you are doing.

  • I think what you're doing is plenty and your girls will be appreciative!

    I agree that I"m not a huge fan of the tote -- if everything else is more expensive than you can afford I would just put their gifts in a regular gift bag. Just my opinion though!
  • Okay I think I will just do a normal gift bag or basket. I bought some ribbon that says bridesmaid on it so maybe I will make a cute bow and not worry about the bags.

  • I agree, find a better tote. I think those are just going to end up being a waste of money (a lot of stuff I've gotten from OT has been crap).

    There are some totes at Forever 21 that are under $5 each: http://tinyurl.com/ykem2p9... and H&M usually has some cute tote bags.

    If you have a Marshall's or TJ Maxx near you, check there as well. I bought my BM a designer tote there for $10 and it's very good quality (originally about $40). 

    LandsEnd.com is having a sale on totes today: http://tinyurl.com/yjq2ycw

    And they have an overstock section on their website: http://tinyurl.com/yfpfxx5
    I looked on the LL Bean website for outlet stores, since the outlets do a deep discount on their totes (sometimes in weird colors or obscure embroidered names), but if you find the right combo you can get a great deal. It doesn't look like there are any in Florida, but if you'll be traveling north before your wedding there are stores on the East Coast starting as far south as Virginia.

  • I agree you wouldn't have to get the tote and the bridesmaid ribbon sounds cute. Adding to domina's suggestion- there are 2 diff color totes that are blank, that you could stencil a monogram on (under $9! and you can print coupons from their website anytime you need them): http://www.acmoore.com/p-65570-mackinac-moon-microfiber-tote-bag-chocolate.aspx
    There's charcoal, light pink and light blue besides the chocolate brown.
