Bachelorette Party Gifties

Hey ladies! I've got another bachelorette party-related post for you today.

As you know by now (blah blah blah) I had my bachelorette party in New Orleans last weekend. Traditionally the bride doesn't get gifts for everyone attending the bachelorette party, but I wanted to do a little something something for my girls (and guy!) to say thank you for traveling all the way to NOLA for little old me, so I decided to put together some little gift bags.

I found these adorable gift bags on Etsy from Gold Tinsel Shop and decided to put together some bachelorette "essentials", you know, for all of the shenanigans that were about to go down. I included some custom sunnies, a mini flask, lip balm, Advil, band aids, and Emergen-C. 

The sunglasses were actually my first purchase, I got a white pair for me and pink for everyone else. Don't tell Jeff I told you this, but they were actually his idea. He was looking for gifts for the groomsmen and thought personalized sunglasses would be funny. I stole his idea and ran with it. Sorry groomsmen, no sunglasses for you! These were also from Etsy, from StickyImages.

My initial thought for the gift bags was BOOZE, but I didn't want to just buy a couple of shooters because of the whole liquids on planes thing (turns out it's very easy to get around this - just put them in your ziplock bag with your other toiletries!). So anyway, instead I decided to get these cute little flasks for everyone instead. They were a custom design (also from Etsy) from LaserBeamCreations. The shop also offers pink flasks and created a proof for me with a little tag about the bachelorette party, but I remembered that not everyone likes pink like me (and one of the people coming on the trip was a dude), and thought that if I was getting a little flask for a gift I would much prefer it to not be covered in someone else's name, so I decided to go with a simple fleur de lis. NOLA style. 

Everything just fit in the bags, and they were small enough that I could easily fit them in my bag. Oh, and they were a super hit. Just check us out on Instagram ;)

Have you ever received a gift on a bachelorette party? What did you get?
