It HAD to be in "Old Cognac", Eva. I would have been disappointed if it had been anything else.

So refined.

Now THAT is the thing I was looking for, but couldn't find on Google.

THAT is a purse. My Nan always had a stock of humbugs in hers. Her pound notes were always sticky.

This is called a wallet or billfold (for men.)

Thank you! Actually, the one I am carrying now is that color and brand, although an older style with a larger coin purse. I often take it along and leave the larger purse (handbag) at home.

These are rather expensive, but they last me for 5 years or more. Good leather is worth the investment for something I use every day.

Thanks guys! I just need to see what's "normal" versus what's a little weird.

Ok, also, as a general rule, how many prizes should you buy for a shower? If there are 20 people attending, perhaps 40 small gifts?

I have no clue how to do this!

3 floppy disks, shewolf? For what? I didn't know anyone still used them. (Honest.)


my digital camera uses floppys. So I always keep some with me when I have my camera so I can pop in a disk.

it is like being tied to a 35mm camera needing film. >sigh<
but I love the camera and on one disk I can get 33 pictures

depends on what games you will play?
I mean, if you are only going to schedule 3 games, then a hand full of gifts are ok. They will be only for those who win.

If you want everyone to get a gift, then buy 20, and give one to everyone, then a single gift for the winner of each game.

So far this is what I've planned:

What's in Your Purse?
- The game that assigns points to the things women carry around in their purses. The person with the most wins. I was thinking of 2nd and 3rd place too, as well as a grand prize for the weirdest thing in a purse. So, 4 prizes there.

Bridal Bingo - That's where the guests get a grid with 12 squares to write in what they think the bride will open. The rule is that you can't write in things like wooden spoons, whisk, serving spoons in seperate boxes, so it isn't quite as easy to win. But you only need 4 right answers in a row to win so I was thinking 10-15 very small prizes for that one. (like a scented candle or something like that)

Famous Twosomes
- This tests your knowledge of famous twosomes. The guests get one name and have to write in the second half of the duo. I was thinking 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for that too. So 3 prizes there.

We need a door prize and I want to do something really cool but can't think of any way to give it away that's unique and fun.

I don't want to play too many games because people get bored easily but maybe one more game. Not sure.

yankee candle company has the greatest small candles for something like... 3 for a dollar?
I think?
Let the winner pick the one they like the best.
Put them in a nice basket and voila.

A door prize, 10 bucks to Amazon.

Wal Mart has small "trial size" lotions that smell really good. You can get StIdes lotions, baby lotions, some perfumed ones as well.. of course, the selection depends on the walmart as well..

Fingernail kits are also inexpencive as well. They have the clipers, cuticle removers, buffers etc..

Bed Bath and beyond has ALOT of small trial size smelly stuff that would make a good prize for someone as well..

For a door prize you might be able to find a copy of the 60's game "Mystery Date" - I think the winner opens the door to find the guy in the tux ready to walk her down the aisle.
