so I’m having 5 bridesmaid and one personal attendant (same age as BM’s, she’s just better at directing people and making sure everything is in order, so she’s perfect as my attendant).
I’ve been having trouble deciding on gifts for the girls, especially ones that are within a decent range, considering the fact that my fiance and I are recent college grads and that I am also paying for all hair and make-up for the girls on the wedding day.
my budget is roughly $30 per person (6 girls total, plus a flower girl).
for BM’s, I ordered sterling silver CZ earrings, and want to find personalized necklaces. I also want to make sure to wrap them up cutely – there are adorable “Bridesmaid” mini drawstring bags for sale on Etsy, which I might order to put these little pieces of jewelry in for them.
for bridal attendant, I ordered a monogrammed tote bag in her favorite color she can use the day-of to carry around the bridal emergency kit, snacks, water, etc. // I also want to find some sort of necklace for her. but different than for the BM’s.
my questions are:
1) do these sound like good gifts?
2) does anyone have better suggestions?
3) what is a special gift to do for my MOH? I was thinking some sort of framed print with a special saying or poem or sentimental picture of us

I would be happy with that esp. since you’re paying for hair and make up.

thank you! Ok, hopefully they will appreciate everything. They all have different styles, so I’m trying to pick jewelry that they will appreciate and maybe wear again, but is still personalized and matches with the wedding. Glad that it seems like a good idea though. Thanks!
any thoughts on a special Maid/Matron of Honor gift? I’m a little stumped.

It is very generous fr you to be paying for their hair and makeup. I think that they will appreciate all the effort you are putting in. The necklace in mammogram sounds great. They can use it for other Jewry and will always be reminded for you and your special day.

I bought clutches for my bridesmaid for $10 per clutch. You could possibly find inexpensive clutches and add small items into there clutches like peppermints, lipgloss, tissue, etc…

Hair and make-up IS very generous. I think your gifts are cute too! I am paying for my BM’s make-up and plan on getting gift cards at the salon to put in their gift bag that way it feels more like it’s part of their gift…. oh and as kind of a joke I got everyone a copy of the movie “Bridesmaids”, they were on sale at Target. I’m finding comedy relief to be very important these days!!!!
