I am thinking about getting a set of these for me, my six bridesmaids, and my mom. It’s $72 for a set of 8. I don’t want to ask their opinion because they know I am on a budget and aren’t really expecting to get a gift so its supposed to be a surprise. I wanted to get them a little something for helping out though and I think these are cute. If you were a bridesmaid would you like a gift like this? Is it enough to get them all cute cups or should I try to find something else to get them in addition to the cups?
(Note: Their dresses are going to be plum with orange sashes so the cup design for the bridesmaid will reflect that. Also, purple or orange bows isntead of red.)

what if you also filled the tumblers with something- maybe the polish you want them to wear on the wedding day, earrings for them to wear, things like that. You could also just buy plain tumblers from WalMart & write their names on them real cute with a sharpie.

Can you get them without the wedding theme part so they can use it at work? Maybe just their name?

@dazzlepop: stick some chocolate and a little mini bottle of alcohol (bevmo, $3) and its a great little gift for them on the day

@dazzlepop: I got my girls https://www.etsy.com/transaction/133782036?ref=fb2_tnx_title so that they wouldn’t need to use ones with their bridesmaid dresses on them for however long after the wedding. But I thought they were a cute and practical idea!

I think it is cute…would definitely use it.

Tumblers are a cute idea, but I think I’d keep it simple (and even less expensive) by perhaps buying a color that each of them would like. Paint pen or sharpie would wear off in a short amount of time. And I agree with PP about filling them with something, but it would be NOTHING that was required of them for the wedding (earrings, etc). Maybe a Starbucks card or something…

@theEguarantee: That’s a great idea to fill them with something! I was also thinking about getting them these cute bracelets they can all wear for the wedding so perhaps I could put those inside too. I think I would buy these instead of Walmart ones. They will look nicer and although $72 seems like a lot thats only $9 per cup. I think that’s how much these sort of cups usually sell for anyway I think.

@dazzlepop: i’m not sure I’d want my name on my mug…I’m a little weird about things like that, I think it goes back to when I was a kid and we were taught to not put our names where strangers could see them for safety. Just my own weird thing though.
They’re super cute otherwise!

I love tervis tumblers so I would be STOKED to get on of these! I agree with PPs though. Maybe add some chocolate, nail polish, and a little bottle of liquor!

I think it’s a cute idea, I love getting things with my name on them, because I can never find premade things with my name spelled right. I saw some cute personalized wine glasses and coffee mugs that were pretty close in price on etsy too, in case your girls are coffee or wine drinkers 🙂

I think they are cute but I’d probably only use it the day of the wedding which to me = kind of a waste of money when they cost 9 bucks a piece.

I am not a fan, but I am especially not a fan of matchy matchy thank you gifts for your girls. Shop for each one individually like it was her birthday or Christmas and tailor each gift to the girl. With all the holiday sales coming up you could get some great deals!
Agree with pp – if you do get these and put something inside, make sure it is nothing to do with the wedding.

I wouldn’t like a gift like this. I’d use it for the getting-ready bit of the day and possibly for part of the reception but I’d probably leave it behind after the wedding. Not trying to be mean and there’s nothing “wrong” with the cups themselves but personally I don’t like things with my name on them. I’d feel like a toddler drinking from a sippy cup with my name on it. And while the idea of a bracelet sounds like a nice gift, if I’m expected to wear it on your wedding day then it’s not a treat for me; it’s accessories for your wedding. If you’d like to give me a bracelet then please make the style something completely un-related to the wedding, and maybe even give it to me after the wedding so I am completely sure it is for me and not decor for you.

Although they’re nice, the cups feel more like a “favor” and less like a gift to me. I think that bridesmaids gifts should be similar to what you might get them for their birthday.
