    I would get them something personalized for them. Not with their name on it, but something you might get them for their birthday and something that shows that you know them. The above are pretty generic and any bride could give to any bridesmaid. I’m getting my MOH a kindle (she is flying across the states to come visit and she loves to read, her kindle is old so I know she will appreciate it) and my other bridesmaid a beatuiful little jewlry box that I know she will love (hand carved) and I’m still working on my last two (since I have 12 months) but I’m getting them personal gifts for their taste. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful.


    Just my two cents.

    @jwdesiree:  Your gift for them should be a thank your for the love and support they are showing you and should not in any way be related to your wedding. Get them gift cards for a massage or to a restaurant they really like. Get them a nice scarf or tickets to a movie you know they want to see. No one wants tissues, mouthwash, and bobby pins as a gift. 

    I recieved a beach tote for being a maid that had “bridesmaid” plastered on it and promptly threw it out after the wedding. Perhaps I am in the minority here but I had no desire to wear something that says “Bridesmaid” on it beyond her wedding weekend.

    @jwdesiree:  Sure, if you think they will like them. I don’t know what I would do with it. I generally have matching glasses and don’t like single glasses floating around, but if you know your girls to know that they will like them and that is something you might do for a birthday or christmas then go ahead.

    maybe you could get them different types of wine, based on what kind they normally drink.

    @jwdesiree:  I do understand the budget restrictions. If you can’t afford the gift cards others have suggested, maybe you could make a mini-photo-gift with a personal note (like a picture of you and the bm in a nice frame; or a mini-photobook with a couple of pictures; doesn’t have to be too fancy, you could just fold/glue some cardstock to a leporello and add pictures)

    @blueEyes90:  I agree. Single wine glasses aren’t the best.

    Personalization is key.  One of my MOH was in a wedding and she got Sketchers Easytoners as a BM gift when she was in a wedding years ago and loved them. Each BM got a different gift.

    I’m getting each of my BM something unique that they will want/need. I’m still thinking on this!

    Personally, I’d love the pearl drop earrings! 🙂

    @jwdesiree:  Sorry, but I am SO anti the “BM” tank top. If you want to get them a tank top to get ready in, fine. But put their names on it, not “BM.” Otherwise, in my opinion, it’s a waste of money. When are they ever going to wear a tank top that says “BM” ever again.

    I’m also kind of anti the wine glasses. A pair, fine, but no one really keeps one wine glass lying around. Maybe do a water bottle or something.
