These were easy-peasy.

I picked up a set of three baskets from Michaels.  I used the two smallest for the bathroom baskets.

Then I went out to the Dollar Store and picked up

1 sewing kit (women)
1 small shoe shine kit (men)
2 small first aide-kits (one each)
2 packages of 20 hand-wipes (one each)

Then I went to CVS and got: 

Womens -

sanitary products
tissues
bobby-pins
safety-pins
tums
asprin
mouthwash
gum
sucking candy
powder
hairspray
hair gel
nail files
hand cream
dental floss
listerine strips
clear nail polish


Mens -

tissues
safety-pins
tums
asprin
mouthwash
gum
sucking candy
powder
hairspray
hair gel
hand cream
dental floss
listerine strips

Then I went to work trying to get everything in the basket and accesible.  It was relatively easy.  I was also able to obtain a ton of perfume/cologne samples from Macy’s (my mom had been saving them up for the past year wink ) and I put an assortment of perfume in the women’s basket and an assortment of cologne in the men’s. 

After they were assembled, I went into word and typed of the poem and printed it out on paper, from paperandmore.com

The poem:

So happy you’re here to share in our special day!
But should something happen to go astray,
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Wet wipe, hand lotion, and even aspirin.
Use only what you need and leave the rest,
It may also be useful to another guest.
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry on back and join in the fun!
Compliments of the Newlyweds!
