I’m having so much fun picking out my bridesmaids gifts 🙂 I love being able to pamper my sister and closest friend and I am also getting a gift for a close friend who is playing guitar at the ceremony. However I do have a few questions of usefulness of certain items.
- Would you prefer a canvas tote with a zippered top or a small duffel bag? I’d be getting either from LL Bean.
- I’m including in the tote the girls favorite bottle of wine and wanted to include wine glasses. Would you prefer nice wine glasses or tervis stemless wine tumblers?
- I’m including in the tote a nice cardigan sweater to wear with the BM dresses if it is cold.
- I got really cute socks with sayings that “match” my relationship with each girl.
- I was thinking of also including a comfy flannel button down shirt, with the intention of that being worn while getting hair done. However I don’t want anyone to feel pressured to wear something if they prefer their own clothes – should I include this?
- In addition to the gift, I plan on taking all the ladies in the bridal party out for manis and pedis the day before as well as paying for their hair the morning of – FMIL is also paying for all of their hotel rooms.

i love the flannel shirt idea, i might steal it! chambray shirts would also be nice. i think those are all great gifts, i’d prefer the tote and seamless wineglasses.

missadventure85: Tote and the stemless tumblers. The tumblers go more with the overall “theme” (outdoorsy) than would nice wine glasses.

I’d really appreciate #6. I’m not a big knick-knack person, so that would be my favorite part of the gift.

you are very generous! i’d go with the tote. and i’d skip the button down shirt, you are already thanking them in plenty of ways. paying for mani/pedis and hair is also awesome!

oh and i’d probably go with the tumblers. im sure they all have plenty of regular wine glasses… and you don’t have to worry about breaking the tumblers during transport

missadventure85: Your gifts are awesome! I’d prefer a canvas tote and the stemless tumblers. The flannel shirts are a great idea for photos and just in case someone forgets a button or zip down shirt, but you already have so many other great things that it’s not necessary if you choose not to include them.
