I have a quick question about bridesmaid gifts. I have already put together their gift bags — personalized wine glasses, earings/necklaces for the wedding and a clutch. Last minute i decided I also wanted to pay for their makeup. Wanting to make sure i let them know in advance (this could influence if they get their nails done etc — more $$ in their pocket), I sent them a msg about it.
I still would like to do something cute and put a “fake” certificate or something in the gift bags. Is it necessary? Tacky? I’m not too creative, so don’t know what fun way I could incorporate it.
Any tips would be much appreciated.

If you already told them about it, I don’t think there’s any need to put anything into their gift bags. Just let them enjoy their other surprises since they will already know about the makeup.

@FunfettiCupcakes: Agreed. I just let all my BMs know their dresses, hair and makeup are covered, but they need to get their own shoes. The bridal party gift is a totally separate thank you for them being in the wedding.

I don’t see why you need to have a coupon or certificate. I just told my BMs ahead of time that we’d be going to the salon together for hair and make-up, my treat.

I don’t think anything more than “hey, I’m paying for your makeup” is required.
