I haven’t had any terrible experiences yet.
Last summer a bride picked out great sunglasses for each of her bridesmaids — all different, all fit us perfectly. We also got flip flops for the reception and massages during our bridesmaids lunch.
I’ve also received a monogrammed jewelry box, which I use every day.
I’m liking the idea of the bathrobes — does everyone use a bathrobe, though?

First off, welcome to Weddingbee!
Are you looing for different BM gifts? If so, the robe idea is a great one…I use mine everyday, in fact I’m wearing it right now, lol.
You can check out the Bridesmaid Gift Wiki for more ideas & I think there are a few posts on the Bridesmaid Boards you can check out if you still want more ideas.

My goodness I can’t even begin to imagine attempting to buy sunglasses for each of my girls — that is one dedicated bride!! I like the idea of the bathrobes too. I love a good bathrobe!! I do think that jewlery is nice, even if it’s for the day, because every time you put it on you get to remember the special day. One thing I would avoid is things with your wedding date on them … like totes or engravings .. make sure you remember it’s a gift for them! But it sounds like you’re on the right track anyway!

I was once given a huge basket from one bride full of Bridesmaid garb. The worst offender? A thong that said "Bridesmaid" on it in crystals. Nuff said. lol
Robes are a cute idea! It would be great for the day of hair/makeup prep.
