Struggling to find that perfect Bridesmaids Gift but finding that nothing remains in budget?  Personalized gifts are all the rage these days, why not gift your girls  handmade cosmetic pouches filled with all of your favorite goodies?  Choose a fixed price, say $100, and stick to your guns.

Start by checking out these adorable cosmetic bags by JuJu Baju.  The Etsy designer will combine shipping, custom match your wedding colors or any colors and prints for that matter, and throws in a “Perfect Purse Pouch” for the bride-to-be.

Then stuff the cute pouches with your personal favorites; think:  OPI or Essie Nail Polishes, MAC lipglass, Benefit Dr. Feel Good, Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara, Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum Roll-On, even a Bonne Belle Lip Smacker.
