I have 6 bridesmaids and have slowly been working on putting together the bridesmaid gifts. I didn’t know what to get for them and ended up getting :
A mini tote embroidered with their names
inside: A signiture fragrance mist from Bath and Body Works ( I choose a different one for each girl depending on what smell seemed most like them)
a pair of Dr. Scholls Fast Flats so they can change into for dancing
and a stretch tube dress for “getting ready” in before the wedding ( all the maids in blue and the maid of honor in yellow and I got myself one in white) Thought it would be comfortable and they can also use them again later on for the beach or lounging around the house. Our wedding is in Florida in August and they seemed nice and lightweight for the heat!
I am also thinking of adding a pocket Bac hand sanitizer to each bag and maybe chocolates or something like that.
What do you think? Would you like something like this as a gift?
Any ideas of what else I can add?

Thanks everyone! I really wanted to do the robes but they were all pretty pricey, then i came across a picture of all the bridesmaids in these little summer tube dresses with the first initial monogramm on the bottom Left of the dress.
I am debating doing that, simply because if I want them to reuse the dresses I don;t know if they will re-wear something with thier initial sewn sewn into it?

@AlmostMrsDM: Honestly I would reuse it if my name was embroidered. I’d wear it to the pool =)

Love the dresses!! Great idea. I would prefer mine without an initial if I was getting a gift. It seems a little cheesy to me!

Thanks everyone. @Citybearbride: that is sort of what I was thinking as well.

Love your bridesmaids gift idea! I might steal the tube dress idea, since I’m getting married in June and it will be hot! I agree that I would not put the initial on the dress.

@savbride : Go for it! I got them for 10 each on ebay. So price was not bad. Also i think you can find nice ones at Target and Old navy. 🙂
