We all get stuck sometimes thinking of an original gift. What should you give a group of ten girls when they’re all flying to Vegas, from around the world, to celebrate your upcoming nuptials? This might be a very specific problem to me, but insert your own occasion and I have the solution. Giftbags can be as simple or extravagant as you want, and easy to personalize.
Since I was specifically told not to be involved with all the party and activity planning I decided to focus all my attention on creating the perfect giftbags for the girls.
What did I put in the giftbags?
♥ Lots of makeup and beauty samples from brands I like (to get prettified).
♥ Nail files (to create claws and protect ourselves).
♥ A flashy gold tattoo (to show our unity).
♥ A little bottle of booze (to get the party started).
♥ A razor (because we know we all need those).
♥ A pink penis straw (to practice).
♥ 2 dare cards (to embarrass ourselves).
♥ A personal note handwritten by yours truly (to show I care).
♥ A hangover kit with my name and the party dates printed on it. Moreover, I filled each hangover kit with: a Dora the Explorer bandage, a package of Advil painkillers, a packet of Emergen-C, a tampon and gum (to refresh).
♥ Last but not least, I gave every girl a pair of knee-high socks from Chrissy’s. Since Chrissy’s site is quite extensive, I was able to choose a pair that suited each girl’s unique personality. My vegan friend received the obvious choice, a pair of socks with VEGAN on them. The animal-rights activist received Panda socks. The crazy cat lady got cat socks and my wino best friend received a pair with WINE printed on the side. All the girls loved the knee socks not only because they’re cute, but they’re also great quality and incredibly comfortable.
It’s always a good idea to give someone an individualized present. It not only shows them you’ve put some thought into it, it also proves you know them well. I’m not saying a nice piece of jewelry isn’t fun, but picking a pair of socks with “bite me” on them for that one friend you know would love it, feels like sharing an inside joke that no-one can take away from you two.[sa_signature]
