I would give anyone who comes the gift – otherwise, it looks like the non-bridesmaids gifts aren’t worth it to you, and looks incredibly rude.  I would not send the gift to the girls who aren’t attendimg/

I agree with PP, it would look pretty rude to give the BMs gifts but not everyone else who comes, and probably is funding, your bachelorette.

Jago2014:  Wait.. we get the people who attend the Bach a gift even if we’re not hosting it for ourselves? Can someone clarify that for me? Mine is coming up and I wasn’t planning on getting my girls anything except for some cutesy shirts I made for the night…

springbride23:  I wasnt planning on getting them anything either… I got “hostess” gifts for the people hosting/helped with my shower but I don’t plan on getting the bachelorette party attenders anything.. that’s too many gifts!!

I was planning on giving all of the attendees a little gift (it’s not til November, so I haven’t actually bought them yet, just gathered the ideas.)  They’re all paying to attend a party for me, so I was going to give them a little gift. 

But then, I also believe you give a hostess gift at your shower as well as a little gift/take home to all your guests.

sostobe:  Okay, I gave my MOH who planned my shower a really nice (re:expensive) necklace and a good vintage of wine. She is also planning my bach in part with the bestman (it’s a combined party). Should I also get her something else?

springbride23:  I live by a really simple rule – if I think I should do something, or I question it, I do it.  It can’t hurt.  Maybe a small gift this time since you already gave her a big gift?  Or just something you know she’d like/enjoy but wouldn’t buy for herself?  I dunno.  I’m just doing small fun gifts for the bachelorette, wine and gift certificates for pedicures for the shower hostess (except one elderly lady who is hosting but hates pedicures. She’s getting wine and a gift certificate to a restaurant that she goes to every week.)  

Jago2014:  Same!  I’m giving all my BMs gift cards to their favourite stores as their gift, but my MOH is my sister and she has gone above and beyond already.  So I’m giving her a little something extra, privately.  🙂

I think you need to make all of the girls the kits- as they are really for the bachelorette weekend not a bridal party gift.

That being said – I hadn’t heard of the bride getting gifts for her bachelorette party attendes until recently either. I’m getting the girls going to mine survival type kits as well. I don’t think you have to, it might be a newer thing or something. All the ones I’ve been to in the past the person planning the party put any favors together.
