This past weekend I drove up to Maine with a few close girlfriends to celebrate the engagement of one of my best friends from high school, Cara. It was less of a traditional bachelorette party, and more of a girls' weekend away for her bridal party (at least those of us over age 21). I can't wait to share more details about the apartment we rented, where we ate and shopped, and all the fun we had together, but in the meantime, I wanted to show you the gift bags I put together for Cara and the girls!
Baggu very kindly provided six reusable standard Baggus to house the goodies. I chose solid colors for the wedding party, and stripes for Cara. The girls used them all weekend! All the bags included yoga headbands, mini notebooks and crazy straws (both from Michaels), candy necklaces, and cute nail files. (Not pictured: bottles of water and gluten-free snacks.) In Cara's, I also added a few extra goodies: a heart-shaped cookie cutter, adorable bracelet, "Relax" bath tea, and "Don'ts For Wives," a 1913 manual for a good marriage, which surprisingly contained a lot of advice that still rings true today (along with some old-fashioned gems, of course).
*Special thanks to Baggu for sending the reusable bags. The Amazon links are affiliate links, which means I may get a very small commission if you use them to make a purchase.
