Have you celebrated a milestone birthday with friends? Or would you like to? How about having each friend bring one of their favorite things to share with the group and everyone goes home with a bag full of goodies? Sounds great, right?!!!
Well, my friend Susie, author of the novel, On Grace, posed this question on her blog and asked me to create my own “fantasy” swag bag for a friend’s birthday in a few choice categories:
I would definitely have to include newly published Style & Simplicity by Ted Kennedy Watson, because it’s a book that everyone can savor.
For a novel, I would include A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams, as it’s just a wonderful, juicy story you can get lost in. Word is out that she has penned another zinger of a novel, so hope to have more on that soon!
You’ve seen the write ups, but I have to say, it’s as good as they say. Cle de Peau’s concealer! It lasts forever and it really is amazing!
I’m pretty much a smoothie nut….many days for breakfast. Sometimes in the afternoon to ward of the munchies. And, if I’ve overindulged for a while, even for dinner. So, I’d bring everything to make fresh smoothies for everyone.
I have Pandora on all day at my house. Favorite channels include: John Legend, John Mayer and Samantha James. I appreciate that you select an artist you like and then they find other artists similar to that and create a “mix” for you.
As a pen and paper gal, I would have personalized note pads from Haute Papier for everyone and a bundle of Le Pen’s in a rainbow of colors wrapped up in ribbon.
Next Monday, you can see what my friend Sue, of The Zhush, would include in her swag bag. No doubt it will be hip and cool…just like Sue.
So, what would be your must-have item for your friends? We all want to know!

Wow this is like the goodie bag to end all goodie bags!! I love your choices, a bit of everything!
I would have to include a smores set so we could build a fire on the beach and relive our teenage years, a pair of flipflops to insure that we are all comfy and casual and a bottle of sunblock and a cute visor so that everyone knows this is all about hanging at the beach:)

Good morning Elizabeth! What a swag bag you have created!! For a beach trip, I would probably include custom Tervis Tumbler cups with tops, with a fun quote or remembrance of the event…and a great book we could all read together!
Funny you chose St. Barth's…I had just been thinking of St. Barth's and you together…hmmm…
Have a wonderful week! xoxo
