Bachelorette Party - Girls' Night Invites

I am the Maid of Honor for my sister's wedding.  From 2,000+ miles away.  Poor girl.

She doesn't want a traditional Bachelorette party, she wants a girls' night pajama party sleepover the night before her wedding.  Sounds good to me!  I know she doesn't read my blog, so it won't spoil the surprise for her if I post what the invitations will look like.  I'm super-stoked about this.  She is getting married at home plate on the Cincinnati Reds' Great American Baseball Field in case I didn't mention that yet.

I'm putting together little "girls' night" kits to mail each of the girls who will be attending - probably about 15.  So far I have:
1. Red Crystal Nail Files (the wedding colors are red and black)
2. Buttons that say "Britney's Bachelorettes" and one for her that says "Bride" (because you have to wear something to commemorate the occasion, but those sashes are cliche and go too far)
3. Mini Nail Polishes
4. Tide Pens (Um, hello - weddings + ballpark food = something is bound to happen)
5. Individual-sized face masks (.5 oz. so they can come on the plane)

I am looking for one more thing - something to really put this over-the-top on the cuteness radar.  Any suggestions out there?  

I thought about buying a bunch of scrapbook supplies and having each girl make a page for her since she's into that, but I can't guarantee that anyone would remember and then remember to bring it - we are all over the country.   I thought about candy, but we'll have plenty of that there.  Maybe some hair clips?   Geez, I need some suggestions - help!

Check out the invitations (ignore the watermarks) and the buttons.  I'm excited!

I don't know if it's do-able, but what about ribbons that have "Britney's Bachelorette Party" and the date on them? Each girl gets two, so all of you can use them for pigtails or something like that in sleepover pictures.

A sleep mask since a lot of you are coming from out of state you can use them on the plane too?

Having a pyjama party is really nice idea. I also there my sister a surprise bachelorette party at one of NYC venues. Did everything amazing to make her day memorable. She loved everything and liked food and d├ęcor arrangements most.
