One of my favorite gifts for my bridesmaids were survival kits that I made.
They also came in super handy that day when I (a) cried like a baby, (b) got a little headache by the end of the night, and (c) asked if anyone had any mints handy. So basically, I probably utilized them more than my bridesmaids.
Here's how I made them (you should make them too!)
I found these great makeup bags on Etsy...you can customize your fabric and rosette colors (and the rosette comes off if you want). Here's where you can get your own...http://www.etsy.com/shop/allisajacobs?ref=pr_shop_more.
Then I went to Walgreens and found all sorts of great things to put in them. They weren't super big, so here's what I collected:
- Shout to go wipes
- Sewing kits (with scissors for my local girls and no scissors for the girls that had to fly home)
- Burts Bees Chap stick
- Travel Size Deodorant
- Altoids Smalls (a nice little mint tin)
- Emory Board
I would have liked to add more to the kits, but the small makeup bags were pretty full with just these few things.
I also made a little card to go in the kits as well.
Now go! Make your own!
