Budget Friendly Bridesmaid Gift

To continue with my bridesmaid gifts, I fell in love with the idea of a tote bag for my girls. One that would be embroidered with their name. I reached out to our local embroidery shop and if I ordered totes from them, they would be $14 and up... once again it was a little more than my price range. With patience comes reward and I was able to find the totes in my price range. Once again Hobby Lobby to my rescue!

I had purchased 5 canvas bags with "Hello" written on one side in gold. I was able to use a 40% off coupon for one bag, but I didn't risk waiting to purchase one a week (to use the 40% off coupons) and have them gone, so I bought all 5. Well to my surprise, the next time I went to Hobby Lobby, they had canvas, gold dot bags on clearance for $1.36! So I bout the 5 that they had and returned 3 of the 5 'Hello' bags. I kept 2 of those for my junior bride and flower girl. I was able to take them to my local embroidery shop and have the names placed for $5 each.

So in total, I was able to stay under $20 each for my 5 bridesmaid gifts by purchasing:

A pair handmade earrings
A handmade necklace
Bottle of lotion from Bath & Body Works (Thank you sale and coupons!)
An embroidered tote bag

Each total gift cost $16.92... I feel that it is a nice gift for under $20. How do you feel about it? Would you be happy with a gift comparable to this?
