The best gift I have gotten from multiple weddings was the jewlery.  Yes, it was matched to use on the wedding day, but I still wear every single piece of jewlery I was given for a wedding, including the one I got when I was 9 (though I have moved it to a longer chain) 

I know a lot of people don’t like the jewlery to ware on the wedding day route, but I have never felt insulted for receiving it.

Well the best gift I ever got was a reusable shopping bag from Target. Everything else was just to use for the wedding and I never used it again afterwards.

But for my bridesmaids I will be getting them each a gift I know they’ll like, probably something from Kate Spade or Coach because I know my girls love these stores. Just as an example of what I’m think this is what I got my girls for Christmas …I am planning something along these lines for their gifts for the wedding too. Each is very personal to each bridesmaid.

MOH1: Kate Spade Golf Ball Wristlet and Bottle of lotion she loves but never will splurge on

MOH2: Wine glass set from Tiffany’s ( only $30!), a bottle of wine, Coach Key Ring

BM1: Wine glass set from Tiffany’s, a bottle of wine, Kate Spade Notebook

BM2: Owl Coin Purse and matching Key Ring from Coach (She loves Owls and Coach)

BM3: A Cowgirl Hooded Sweatshirt, Horseshoe necklace (this BM is country cowgirl all the way)

I already gave them tote bags with stuff for the wedding in it…a clutch, a pashmina in case it’s cold, and  a water bottle koozie.

I plan to additionally get them each a pair of fast flats or flip flops for the reception, a nice card, and a frame which later I will give them a photo of us together on the wedding day to put in it.

Of the gifts I gave for Chirstmas, the Tiffany wine glass set and bottle of wine was one I can see being universally a great gift from any BM (as long as they like wine!). Plus in total I got that for around $40-50/each for wine and glasses! Plus the glasses came in the beautiful Tiffany’s box.

TOTE BAGS! I love totes, I still use the one from my brother’s wedding that his wife gave me like 3 years ago. 

My best friend gave me a ring holder and I use it every night, it’s on my night stand. That was by far one of the better things I got. I gave my girls among other things, coach clutches and hand made them jewelry rolls and I know they all still use both of those items as well as the tote bags I gave them.

I usually don’t re wear the jewelry because its too formal and not sometihing I can put to use. I do rewear nice flip flops if I get those. 

 

I typically never use filler things like, once I got a “mini facial in a box”. I never opened it or used it.

I think I’m going to get them a wedding kit in a personally chosen tote: pashmina, bottled water, Advil/Tylenol, granola bars, blotting papers, etc. and a gift certificate for a massage at a spa near them. Then i’m going to ask my photographer for a pic of me with each of them, plus these cool individual portraits of each of them. After the wedding I’ll send then each a pic or two in a cool frame.
