Sometimes I am asked, just what exactly do you do with a mini tote ? So I thought I would combine some ideas of use & who each item might be good for in this blogpost.
The Mini Tote
My small tote bags are great for any age. From just learning to use a bag to your grandmother who just wants her compact & tissues, they are the perfect little size. Though they are quite small, I am impressed with how much you can fit in a mini tote. It is 3″ deep so you can get your phone, wallet & plenty of other essentials into this small bag. What started off as my answer to only wanting to carry the basics for my walks into town…has changed the way my friends view their bags. I’ve been told, everyone needs to have an itty bitty bag in their collection because they are useful & cute.
7 Possible Uses
- Little girls to hold toys, snacks or a lunch box.
- Bridal Parties to hold small gifts or jewelry
- As a gift bag
- Ladies Night Out
- On your office desk for trips to the ladies room to freshen up <—great gift ideas for your BFF at the office.
- Friends who carry their phone in their pocket
- Concerts or other outings where you want your phone, camera & money.
This year with my clutches I made several different styles including wool, bright colors and even added some embroidery. They are classic, well constructed, not flimsy and just an all around great gift.
My zipper wallets are great for tween on up to grandma. My tween said that they are the perfect size to hold allowance, playdate cards, notes from friends, her game device and music player. They are great for the rest as it holds your phone, cash, credit cards & lip balm. Allowing this clutch to move from different bag to different bag or just grab the clutch for when that is all you need for a quick trip to the grocery store.
- Phone Case
- Purse Organizer
- Clutch – holds the essentials (even for a formal night out)
- Gift Cards
- Cords for recharging
In limited quantities, I still have two wristlets in stock. One is for the iPhone 4 or could be used for an iTouch or iPod and the other wristlet it doesn’t matter what style phone you have it is big enough. These are a very popular item & many like the wristlet straps. The straps are very practical for when you are traveling on vacation and also for teens/tweens who often forget items if they are not strapped to their bodies. Yay for teenage years!
I also have a variety of other items such as Coin Purses, Embroidered Hoop Art, Coffee Cozies, Key Chains; this is what I’ve categorized as Other Fun Items.
These are great inexpensive gifts with a lot of heart. No one would think you didn’t go all out on their gift if you gave them one of these items. They are all priced below $15 and several items are already grouped in packages to provide you a discount & to make your shopping easier.
There is still time to shop but time is running out. I have also been asked for some custom orders and time is running out on these too.
I hope this helps you to with your holiday shopping and that you know that you can come to one store for many different people on your list.
