I am making kits for our bm and gm, with things like sunglasses, mini bottle of liqour, asprin, lip gloss, nailpolish (ovi not in the gm gift) and other things. In there I wanted to put their main gift, but I am not sure what to do. We were thinking personalized beer mugs (they are ALL big beer drinkers) but is this enough with the kit we are on a budget but I dont want them to feel like they were cheated? and if we do personalized should it have their name or should it say “bridemaid” “groomsmen”, thanks you guys are always so helpful! 🙂

I wouldn’t mind a beer mug personalized with my initials. You could also do a unique bottle opener with that too. Other common things I’ve heard of are jewelry for the Bridesmaid or Best Man and like a watch for Groomsmen. Depends on your budget of course.

I would def. like this. I’m not sure I would want it to say “bridesmaid” though….I think I would prefer my name if you wanted to do personalized. For my girls I got them their jewelry (earrings & bracelet), Reef flip flops, a personalized koozie that I got off Etsy (they were all different colors and patterns with their first names), and I also did little kit gift bags. In the bags I put tissues, lip gloss, a couple bandaids (no one likes blisters from uncomfy shoes!), a couple packs of Motrin (2 in a pack), a mini bottle of their fav liquor, antibacterial hand gel ($1 at Bath & Body), & a handful of bobby pins just in case of hair issues. They all seemed to like everything and they all recently just said that the flip flops and koozies came in handy by the pool and beach!

I would do names. I was in a wedding 3 years ago, and while it was awesome, I wouldn’t still be using something that said bridesmaid. My first name is still the same though 🙂

I would like it 🙂 You could also maybe pay for the girls’ hair as part of the gift of you feel like it isn’t enough

Thank you everyone! I agree the bridemaid thing would be strange.. i like the engraved mug with their name and do the botter opener.. We asked all put bm and gm with koozies that said “we can’t say I do without you” so it all makes sense thanks everyone
