I’ve been wanting to make bags for our out of town guests for a while now. And then I found these cheap tote bags from, where else? Cheap Totes. And at 89 cents each? I think I can handle that. Then I saw that you can use a stamp to decorate them, a la Mrs. Mascara.
I know a lot of couples tend to use their initials or monogram, but I think our guests would prefer something that they feel more comfortable reusing.
As for what to fill them with, I’m still trying to decide. But I’m definitely leaning towards Texas-themed items because most of the people coming in from out of town aren’t from Texas. I also want to include food, because I know how much it sucks to be in your hotel room starving with no options, except for the overpriced mini bar.
I’m thinking of also adding beef jerky (even though I’m vegetarian, it’s very Texas, and not everyone else avoids meat).
And maybe peanuts (spicy, lime, or regular):
Maybe we’ll include something sweet, although I can’t think of a Texas candy.
What would you all want in your bags?
