@redbee13:  I disagree that personalized gifts have become impersonal. Yes, if you mean getting them all a shirt that says Brdesmaid A, Bridesmaid B then yes, maybe so.

I gave my MOH a personalized photo cube from Personalization Mall. I got to completely personalize a message on it and placed pictures of us from the time we were little until now, and she was so thankful that I put that much thought into it. If you want to add a more personal touch to gifts, I would suggest going that route.

@redbee13:  I think I am going to get each other a gift that suits them best. My girls are different but similar. I was thinking of picking out a bracelet or neckalce with a pendent I know they would love and putting it in a jewelry box (each jewelry box also being different to fit their unique styles). 

This is how I thought of what to get them. Sometimes writing it out makes it simpler than just trying to categorize them all into one group.


MOH- loves bows, loves yellow and girly cutesy things

Bridesmaid 1- loves beach, ocean, blues and greens

Bridesmaid 2- love neutrals, flowers and simplicity

Bridesmaid 3- loves girly, pink, shiny things

Bridesmaid 4- loves earthy almost indie inspired things, neutrals with pops of colors.

I’m with your bridesmaids gifts are getting really impersonal and all the same. Surprise! A tote and bath robe with your name on it! So Unique! NOT!

I’m getting my girls all gift cards to different stores they love in the same amount. That way they can pick exactly what they want (for example one bridesmaid is obsessed with Victoria’s Secret, another more practical and will get a restaurant one and another loves the deals at tjmax)

Also, adding in their favorite bottle of booze. They will definitely use that. Along with some chocolates and other little things.

I just didn’t want to give them something like a personalized jewelry roll that they would have to pretend to like, sit on the bottom of their closet or end up at Goodwill. What a waste of money.
