Guest tote: Brooklyn

Categories   DIY Projects

Remember those super cute MapTotes that were making the rounds a few months ago? We love them. They’re so perfect for things like grocery shopping, beach going, flea marketing and the like. But they’d also make exceptional gift bags for guests of your wedding, filled with local treats of course. Inspired by Erin’s guest post on NYC welcome gifts, we thought we’d take on a few more cities.

Here’s our take on Brooklyn:

1. Marlow & Sons snacks
2. One Girl Cookies
3. Map Tote welcome card
4. Map Tote bag
5. McClures Pickles
6. Brooklyn Brewery beer
7. Fine & Raw bonbons
8. Brooklyn coasters from Fish’s Eddy
9. Tickets to a Brooklyn Cyclones game (season permitting)
10. And of course, Brooklyn gum.

We’re taking suggestions for our next city guest tote post, so let us know what you’d like to see!

Would love to see one done for LA. This bag is awesome.

Maggie on Jun 24, 2010

LOVE! One girl cookies are a little piece of heaven in bite size. One of my favorite clients brought some to me the first time I met her and I was in love. Go buy some. Immediately. :)

I bet you could make an awesome bag for Boston!

Chrissy on Jun 24, 2010

How about a Colorado bag? I LOVE this idea!

Catherine on Jun 24, 2010

I'd love you to do a couple of UK cities! Perhaps London - a red bus key ring, a map of a walking tour, some English breakfast tea; perhaps Liverpool - a beatles key ring, some Everton mints, a ticket for the ferry across the Mersey; perhaps Edinburgh - a ticket to a spooky ghost tour, some Edinburgh rock, a little whiskey, something tartan. The list is endless and could be so much fun!

Leigh on Jun 24, 2010

Philly, please!

Kathryn on Jun 24, 2010

Ooh! I hope you do one for San Francisco!

Tova on Jun 24, 2010

Atlanta, please!

Chloe C. on Jun 24, 2010

I'm rooting for a Hawaii bag (selfishly, for my destination wedding)! There are tons of goodies over there, but it's hard to track down choices from afar.

Amanda G. on Jun 24, 2010

Orlando please!! :)

Rebecca Crumley on Jun 24, 2010

Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in!! Plus if you use those Cyclones tickets on a Friday summer night, fireworks are included!

Danielle on Jun 24, 2010

Excellent bag! would love pricing details, though, so one can see how much wonderful guest bags like this might cost. I'll put my vote in for a Sonoma bag. Thanks!

Sofia on Jun 24, 2010

Morgan on Jun 24, 2010

Portland would be a great city to do. I can already think of some fun things to put in the totes.

kellie on Jun 24, 2010

Cera on Jun 25, 2010

I love the gum, too! I think a Pacific Northwest/Northern Idaho bag would be awesome! I've been trying to design a bag for one of my friends who is flying up from St. Louis.

Taryn on Jun 25, 2010

Seconding Atlanta - having a destination wedding there and have NO IDEA what city-specific things I could put in OOT bags!! :(

Estie on Jun 25, 2010


Elizabeth on Jun 25, 2010

How about New Jersey? There's a lot to go with, and editing a cool, edgy, yet wedding appropriate collection of New Jersey swag would be a fun challenge.

annie on Jun 25, 2010
