In 2019, more than 2,000,000 Americans got married.
But before you even walk down the aisle, you have a bachelorette party to plan. Top of the list on that planning should be your bachelorette party gift bag.
Giving a gift bag to your guests lets them know that you appreciate their presence. Plus, it’s just plain fun to put together and watch them open.
But if you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 things to put in your gift bag.
- Party Outfit Accessories
If you give your guests their Bachelorette party gift bags before the actual event, you can stuff some gear for your party in there. But what do we mean by party outfit accessories? The things that let everybody around you know you’re part of a bachelorette party, of course.
We’re talking “bride tribe” tee’s, colorful headbands, or heart-shaped sunnies. If you’re the more traditional type, this could even be beautiful rose gold bracelets or matching bathing suits for parties that’ll be pool or oceanside.
- Wine Koozies
If there’s one thing you can count on at your party, it’s that your girls will be drinking wine. That means they’ll need a way to keep their whites cool if you’re having your party in the hot summer sun.
A wine koozie functions the same as a beer koozie. That is, it insulates your white wine from warming in the sunlight.
As an added bonus, they’re completely customizable. Your custom wine koozies can be any color you want, and you can throw some great copy on there, too.
- Drink Markers
While we’re on the subject of the abundance of alcohol many of your party-goers will likely be consuming, you’ll want to be sure that everyone knows which drink is theirs. While you could just have a sharpie handy to write names on red solo cups, your party is going to be more classy than a college kegger.
There are plenty of bachelorette-themed drink markers or you could opt for something more beautiful and long-lasting. Consider matching them to the koozies you’ve already customized.
- Hangover Kits
This is a classic bachelorette party favor for a reason. They’re relevant considering the activities you’ll be partaking in and you can easily DIY them.
Stuff some Advil, Emergen-C, mints, cleansing towels, and nourishment (nuts or granola bars) into small, purse-sized bags. These can also be customized with cute, wedding-themed sayings like “in sickness and in health”.
- Something Handmade: The Ultimate Bachelorette Party Gift
Handmade items go a long way in showing your friends how much you care about them and how much you appreciate them being there. You might make flower crowns, cookies with each guest’s name on it, or homemade creams and lip balms.
Think about what you already DIY for yourself and what you’re good at. Then, turn it into a party favor.
