Oh I don’t know what to do for Bridesmaid presents.
I have two bridesmaids – my friend and my half-sister…
My friend is quite easy going and would appreciate just about anything I got her (ie if I like it then theres a good chance she will).
My sister doesn’t like anything!!! (ie – for her birthday she will tell you what she wants and from where and what color and if she doesn’t get exactly what she wants im pretty sure it ends up in the bin). And she doesn’t wear jewelry and is a minimalist…
I feel like anything I get my sister is a waste of money. But think my friend would really appreciate a nice gift.
All I can think of is getting my sister a voucher for a beauty spa and my friend a nice bracelet or something. But I would love to get both of them something they would keep… but don’t know if its possible.
Does anyone know of any different sort of presents? or where I could get nice robes? Im from Australia and I know America has heaps of better/different stuff to us, so can anyone please point me in the direction of good online shops? THANKS!

ITS ALL GOOD!!! I just solved my own problem girls 🙂 🙂 🙂
Just ordered one of these gorgeous Robes each (and one for me of course!) from Pretty Plum Sugar. Much more special than a white boring robe and will look great in picies – win win!
The girls are having white each and I’m having the pink one (which matched perfect with my colour scheme) . At $65 each they fit perfect in my budget and will surely get lots of use after the big day. Plus considering I’ve bought their dresses, shoes, bags, earrings, headbands and accommodation I think that should be ample.

If your sister is a minimalist, get her a gift she can experience, like tickets to avineyard or th beauty treatment thinG. I donno if this is a possibility, but maybe you can ask her for some direction? It’s weird to do for a bridesmaid gift but maybe it’ll work!

I love all the suggestions that have been given so far! I did personalized robes for mine. Real big thick fuzzy ones. I ordered them online from hhembroidery.com which has all different stuff you can have embroidered. I don’t know for sure if they ship internationally, but it should be easy to ask them.

Are the robes to be worn when they get ready the day of the wedding? If so, nice idea they will look great.

Ahh read some bad reviews about Pretty Plum Sugar where I’ve ordered my robes from… so fingers crossed they arrive and are good quality!!! Will update if/when I get them 🙂

Okay well GREAT news!! I got my robessss 🙂
I started to freak out that they wouldn’t come because they said they would post a couple of weeks before my wedding (despite paying and ordering months ago) but after a couple of emails backwards and forwards explaining that I need to travel back home in time for my wedding they arrived (a couple of weeks from ordering them)…
The quiality looks very good (despite some negative reviews) and they look very pretty! Hope the girls like them, cant wait to wear mine 🙂
