Last month, one of my very good friends just asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. This would make it my fifth time being one! Though I've never been a bride (haha!), I can give you ideas on what to gift your bridesmaids when you ask them to be one - based on my experience. What my friend did was to fill up a box of goodies that had a note card inside with the most touching message and the question "Will You Be my Bridesmaid?" at the end. She had a whole Alice in Wonderland theme going on so you can see at the front of the box a photo of Alice falling down the rabbit hole. Inside the box, she filled it with a mini bottle of champagne that had a tag that said "Drink Me', some chips and lollies that said "eat me" (in keeping with the Alice theme) and other wonderful goodies, like a scented candle, personalized cards, a champagne glass (to accompany the champagne ofcourse), a mini perfume roller, nail polish and so on. Check out the photos below to see a closer look at everything.

I'm also showing a photo (grabbed from Instagram) of my cousin's bridesmaid loot from my sister. This loot came in a really pretty wooden box that contained a lace handkerchief, nail polish and a flask. Pretty decent right?
