I just wanted some ideas from you all.. I got each of my bridesmaids a very nice pearl necklace with matching earnings ($75 value on sale for $40! yay for sales!).
I was thinking I would also pay for their hair on the day of the wedding. (I told them I would like their hair curly but I was fine if they wanted to do their own or get appt – not picky on HOW it’s curled, just didn’t want it laying flat and nothing done with it, so I basically gave them free reign to do whatever they thought looked good).
Do you think this is enough of a gift?
I was debating wanting to do a little “gift bag” or something but I think that could quickly add up (like a cup cozy – I found one on etsy I love that is actually adjustable to different cup sizes for $10, maybe some “day of items – advil, tide to go, lint roller, lip gloss”, scarf/wrap for with their dress ). I wanted to spend MAX $100 but preferably less. I was thinking I could also do personalized clothes hangers but I don’t know if this is something that people actually would want.

as many other BM gifts posts on WB will say, most people appreciate gifts that aren’t all “gifts” for the wedding day. did you want them to wear the jewlery you bought them? if so, it’s less a gift, and more a request that you simply offered to buy for them. same goes for your other ideas (except for the koozie). try to think of what you would buy them for their birthday/christmas, i’m sure they’d much appreciate that thought rather than everything revolving around your wedding!

It depends if the necklace and earrings are for the wedding. BM and MOH presents shouldn’t be about the wedding and as a PP said, get them something that you would like get them as a christmas or birthday gift.
