Wer're not doing favours just cos i think they are a huge waste of money but love the idea of toilet baskets cos how many functions have we been to and really needed things like plasters, tampons etc and i can really take it out of you enjoying yourself. Now i know what goes in the womens baskets but what the hell goes in the mens?? i can barely think of 4 things...

Think we're gonna do this as well. Men's ones are hard to think of stuff though - maybe things like hair gel, Rennie, mints, safety pins, plasters. Can't think of any more off the top of my head so would be interested in what anyone thinks!

Cool, thanks for that but if anyone thinks of anything let us know. Thinking of getting cheap (black cos they go with most outfits) flip flops for the girls who's shoes kill them. To be honest favours could cost 200 quid whereas this may only set you back 40 quid if ya look for bargains. Gonna source out baskets tomorrow. Ikea might be a good start!
