Wedding Wednesday - My Shower Hostess Gifts

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Most of you regulars probably remember the Wedding Wednesday: Hostess Gift Edition feature I did a few months back.  Each guest blogger provided fabulous inspiration, and let's just say that I won't be running out of hostess gift ideas anytime soon!

Well, when it came time to find a gift for my 7 sweet bridal shower hostesses, I actually came up with my own idea and would love to share it with you.  We Dallasites are lucky enough to have a Wisteria Outlet, and they have the most incredible jute shoppers.  They come in every color, and numerous sizes. And best of all, they're only $18 each.  The only problem is that they have a pretty ugly "Wisteria" leather patch smack dab on the front of them... not exactly hostess gift material.  Well the sweet ladies at Wisteria were kind enough to allow me to perform surgery on a sample tote to see if the label would come off smoothly.  That it did, and I took the totes to an embroidery store to have each girl's monogram placed on the front.  I think my friends loved them, and best of all, they only cost about $25 each.

You can get the bags online here if you're interested!

xoxo A

these are so cute!! i recently had to buy 11 hostess gifts for my shower ladies and ended up getting personalized paperweights from etsy.

This is such a great idea! I can also see this being perfect as a little favor for the wedding party, stuffed with goodies. Maybe with the date and location or a phrase embroidered...something that's meaningful but not TOO sentimental to have on a tote bag!

Fabulous gift! A girl can never have too many totes and my favorite are the personalized ones that remind me of something special like a friends shower. :)

Ahh, I have one of these sitting at my feet right now! ($5 at the warehouse sale - I went a little crazy) I'm taking it home to remove the patch tonight - I hate it. Now I shall pick out monogram fonts. :)
