I use the smallest case in my purse to hold various reward and gift cards I have. Large case could be tech case for various charger cords and medium case I use for essentials in car. . I like to keep small bag in car console to hold tissues, gum, chap stick, and hand sanitizer for my family. Not things I necessarily need to carry daily but nice to have in car if needed.I also put my car charger in there when not needed. I also think these bags would make great gifts. Break up the set. Keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts with small gifts inside. The small one in particular would be nice way to give gift cards!!

Sleek and handy, but needs to be bigger
This was a bonus gift that I received recently, and while I'm happy to have the bags, I don't think I would actually buy them on my own. Here's why.
The biggest one is a great size for holding feminine hygiene products in my purse. I also intend to use it for makeup on trips, keeping my large cosmetic bag (which I've had forever in Bali Blue - love!) free for toothbrush, floss, shampoo, etc.
The middle one is good for...medications, I guess? A mini first aid kit? If it was longer, it'd be good for a toothbrush and floss.
What's not so good:
I really can't see what the smallest bag is good for except gift cards, as other people have noted. It's tiny! Coins, maybe, if you carry around a lot. But my wallet already holds my change.
Overall: The big one's great, but the smaller two just aren't large enough to be really useful. I'd recommend buying the cosmetic bags instead.

Great gift !!
I love these !! I usually order a set with every order. Make great gifts, I use in my handbag, book bag, car to hold small items, and more !! Get a different pattern every time - a can't go wrong gift IMO, yes the smallest is great for gift cards. You will be very pleased. I also use in my luggage, as little packing pouch's.

Can I rate these one million stars?
I got these for Christmas in Indigo Pop, and I have to say, perfect for travel. Right after Christmas, my family and I went to Hill Country, and these bags were perfect for my toothbrush and that kind of stuff. I love these bags, and there are much more uses for them. I can see why other reviewers can fit gift cards in the small one. The medium is of course a make-up bag, but I can fit a kindle in the large one. Again, great bags.

GREAT purchase for ANYBODY!
This is a GREAT trio! I got this in Safari Sunset [One of my FAVORITE colors!] and they are the perfect sizes. It's also a really cute set because the medium size one is made of the fabric that is generally on the INSIDE of bags with that particular pattern.
Perfect sizes; SO many uses! I use the large one for make-up [I'm low-key in terms of my make-up use] and it fits just what I need. It fits my Urban Decay Naked 2 eye shadow color palatte [I was having a lot of trouble finding something big enough to fit it but not overwhelmingly huge.
Great trio! Go get a few for yourself and as gifts!

Great for all types of things
I recently bought one of these in Lemon Parfait which is such a pretty color. I use the smallest one to put business cards in to give to people when I meet them and the case protects my cards from getting damaged in my bag. I use the medium one for a protective sleeve for my Garmin GPS. The largest one I use as a pencil case. I am a senior in college and I carry lots of pens, flashdrive, whiteout, lots of pencils, and like 4 packs of post-its. This keeps them all organized and it still takes up little space in my bag. I am planning to buy at least 2 more because there are lots of little things you can use this set for. You can even break them apart and give them away seperatly as gifts-- Like put a giftcard in the small one or put something in the large one to give out.

Great Hostess Gift
I purchased this trio in the new Midnight Blues along with a matching luggage tag as a hostess gift. The couple are relocating overseas so I knew she might be able to use the items when she packed for her trip. The different sizes are a great way to organize items in the suitcase, tote or purse. I also plan on getting this as a graduation gift (along with some $$) for a great-niece in June.
I think I would rename this product just the Trio since at first I didn't think about all the ways to use it besides for cosmetics.

Great variety pack
I got these in Lemon Parfait at the outlet. I am using the smallest one in my gym bag to hold jewelery, the medium one to hold various just-in-case items in my glove compartment in the car, and the largest for those spare items in my office desk drawer. The full price is too high for this set, but if you get them on sale or clearance they are great.

not what I expected, but a great purchase nonethel
I will start off this review by saying that I am kind of dumb. When I saw the cosmetic trio, I thought that the small, medium and large cosmetics had all been grouped into a neat giftable item for a lower price. I was like, "Wow, that is so cool! And a steal!" (I can't see the pictures of the item, so it wasn't as apparent to me as it might be to anyone else.) So when I got the cosmetic trio, I was originally disappointed. But then I realized my mistake and came to really like the bags for what they are. I keep the small and medium bags in my purse. The small holds a couple 5ML bottles of perfume oil. I keep tweezers, chapstick, dental floss, a pill bottle and other random things like that in the medium one. I haven't used the large one a lot, but I did use it on a trip to store my travel-sized toiletries and it worked really well. So if you are carrying a purse with a lack of organizational pockets, or you want to add to the organization your purse already has, the cosmetic trio is a nice option.

Wish I could give this 10 stars!!!!!
I just bought my third set of these: my first was camelia, the second was the daisy doodle, and my new found love, plaid meets paisly, (or is it the other way around? LOL). Anyhooo....I can't say enough about these, and had to take time to write a review. I look to the reviews to help me purchase, so I hope my review is helpful. I hadn't thought to use the smallest one for cards and receipts, so a review helped me there. Thanks! I usually use the smallest one for my mac book air's mouse, since there are no extra pieces. I've also used it to keep my hot spot device or back up battery pack charger. The medium one is used for make up, etc. like some of the other reviewers. As for the largest one, I slip my kindle nook in there and that's my only purpose for those, except if I'm traveling and need to put miscellaneous stuff in it. However, since I have three, my kindle is always in one of them. I thought that was a nice tip I could share. Overall, I love these little babies too. Can't say enough about them. They're great for traveling so you can organize your carryall and not have things all over the place. They're great for organizing your handbag too. When I have my backpack, they are used to hold items I would normally put in my purse so that's the only bag I have to carry that day. So I hope this helps. Thanks Vera Bradley for another gem!
