I can’t decide on what to get my bridesmaids. I’m already paying for their hair, but I want to gift them something small as well. My wedding is on May 10, and it probably will be chilly in the evening (and possibly during the day!) so I thought a pashmina would be nice.
Otherwise, I would get them all a pair of classic earrings, like the ones below. They wouldn’t have to wear them for the wedding – I told them to choose their own jewelry.
In case it makes any difference, the guys are getting Nixon watches.

@LindyLu: A pashmina. The earrings aren’t to my taste and I would appreciate something to keep me warm that fits with the dress code.

@Ruby-Redshoes: +1. I love the pashmina!

I chose the pashmina. I think everyone would like it more then the earrings as some people may not like the style of earring

@LindyLu: I like the earrings, but if I had to get everyone the same thing, I’d pick the pashmina. It’s also a very practical gift, which I love.

I suppose I’d prefer the pashmina, but I already have 6 or 8 in various colors. The earrings just seem sort of generic to me. Do you have any interest in trying to personalize gifts for their personalities?

Like you said, it will most likely be chilly, so a pashmina will be practical.

I think I would rather buy them their earrings. Not those specific ones, though.

I’d rather get the pashmina, I’m picky about my jewelry

I picked earrings, but I also agree I may personalize which ones I bought for each girl. Also I personally am not a fan of pashminas but thats just me.

I already have one pair of silver work earrings and dont need more, so I’d prefer the pashmina if it was in a color I liked and didn’t have. If it’s A true gift and not for the wedding, I’d suggest getting the pashminas in colors individualized to what each would like instead of making it part of their wedding look.

I’d go for pachmina because they can be used on the wedding day if it gets chilly and use them afterwords. Besides not everyone has the same taste when it comes to earrings 🙂
