Saw these cute pouches on pinterest and found them on amazon on sale so I bought them for my bridesmaids as little gifts and one for myself. Perfect to hold some makeup and money.

I am having so much fun figuring out my bridesmaid gifts! I decided early on I want to get them a nice bag they can use to travel, and pack it with fun stuff. I also don't want to give them anything cheesy or too linked to my wedding, because I want them to really use the stuff again. Here's what I have so far:
1) J Crew canvas weekender bag. I got this on SUPER sale at the J Crew outlet - only $40 each. I figure they can use them as their carry on, or just use them in the future for weekend getaways. I would attach pics of mine but I have no idea how to do that, so here's the link.
2) Mini make up bag from Bath & Body Works. I love that these are so bright and fun! They could even work as clutches. I got one in each color.
3) Stuff to go in the mini make up bags
-- Pure Paradise mini lotion and hand sanitizer, also from BBW
-- mini Stila make up pallete from Nordstrom Rack
-- CO Bigelow lip treatments - 1 Mentha lip tint, 1 My favorite lip balm. I love love love these and they were on sale!
4) Other stuff to go in the J Crew bags
-- Havaina flip flops from Nordstrom Rack
-- travel pillow/iPad holder from Bed Bath & Beyond
So far, believe it or not, I've only spent $90 per bag! I want to spend about $120 - $150 each, so I'm trying to figure out what else to add. I'm considering either a passport holder, like this adorbs one from Kate Spade, or necklaces, like Dogeared or the Kate Spade initial necklace. I also could use the extra $ to pay for their hair or makeup, but I don't know how I feel about that. It's definitely less fun than buying more presents, but maybe more practical.
What does everyone think?? I'm so eager for feedback, but the people I'd normally ask are the girls I'm buying for! Help!
