@Firinne:  You are such a generous bride!

I got my girls customized tumblers for iced coffee or whatever. (They’re the kind with lids and straws like the Starbucks cups, but hard plastic.)

Then I ordered them lariat necklaces on Etsy, each with a jewel and a little leaf that has their first initial on it. I still plan to use a VistaPrint Groupon for customized tote bags, which will probably relate to the wedding colors but not the wedding itself for reusability.

I had to stop myself from getting clutches and filling them with their timelines and “emergency” items like chapstick, deodorant remover, earring backs, hairspray, etc. etc. It’s such a cute idea, but it would have been another $200 probably.

I think it’s a lot, but of its not breaking the bank for you a very sweet gesture. I did notice that everything you are giving them is specifically related to use for your wedding though. Are any of the items just a nice thank you that they are likely to use again in the future?

I didn’t get them a whole lot… but I was planning on going a lot simpler and cheaper than I did. Originally I was just going to get them shawls… yeaaa that turned into shawls, decorative wine glasses, engraved compacts, and probably something else I see and compulsively buy for them between now and the wedding… I have a gift giving problem as well. If I had more money, I would have also bought them about 10 other things I’ve seen in the store/online.

I did but I didn’t buy them lots of stuff I just ended up getting one very expensive necklace for all of them. I wanted them to have something they could keep, and that they would love to wear.

I wanted to spoil my girls, but it just wasn’t in the budget. Besides that, none of them have been very helpful in any aspect of the planning (late deposits on dresses, backing out of projects, getting wasted and making a$$es out of themselves at my bachelorette–I was completely sober, however–etc.), so I didn’t feel the need to ‘reward’ them, or ‘thank’ them for much.
That being said, they ended up with necklaces, sunglasses (to match the necklaces), and engraved champagne flutes.

Haha I’m the same way, as of right now I mad ehtem personalized totes which I am planning on filling with stuff as a wedding-day emergency kit, I also made hair-pieces for the wedding and personalized hangers for the wedding. I also got them clutches with their initials on them and wine glasses with their names etched in that will be at the reception but they will take them home with them…

I keep seeing more stuff I want to get them like robes, tumblers and/or coffee mugs, and jewelry but I just can’t spend that much ๐Ÿ™

@Firinne:  I’m the same way! I loooove gifting. 

So far I have:

Totes

Chevron makeup bags that will have “emergency” kits

Necklaces

Tumblers with lids

Flasks (I’m giving those at the bachelorette party)

I’m also getting them either flip flops or flats in case they want to take their heels off but don’t want to be barefoot

I also got each girl something individual that speaks to their personality (more of what I would give for a birthday or Christmas).
