One of my first wedding-planning acts was to buy gifts for my bridesmaids. In fact, I bought them before our engagement was even official! But I found the perfect thing and wasn’t sure it would be available forever:
Turns out the World Food Programme Feed Bag (whose name brings to mind that thing they put oats into and strap onto a horse’s snout!) is still available from Amazon.com, for $59.95. Yes, it’s a tote bag, which is not the world’s most unusual bridesmaids’ gift. BUT, this one has a special wrinkle ”“ part of the purchase price goes to the UN Food Programme to feed one child for an entire school year. My fashionable-yet-world-conscious bridesmaids are going to love both the stylish reusable bag AND the act of generosity that goes with it.
With 5 months till the wedding, I’ll probably grow restless and end up adding little gifts inside the bags ”¦ any suggestions? What unusual gifts are you giving your bridesmaids?
