So, I already bought my bridesmaids a necklace and earring set, and their shoes. I want to get them one more “bigger” gift. So, would you rather have a Coach clutch/wristlet or a gift certificate for the salon where we’re getting our hair done?
I can get the clutches at the Coach outlet for around $50 a piece, so the other option is a gift certificate for $50. One is obviously more of a keepsake/fun, the other is more cost conscious. What do you think?

Depending on how cost-conscious your bridesmaids are, I vote for the salon. That will help ease their cost burden, and it’s something you can enjoy together while having quality time!

I vote for the salon, too, but I’m not a big Coach fan.

i really do not like coach; do you know if your bridesmaids do? do you know if they have any need for the clutch (maybe they already have a lot of clutches, or even a similar coach clutch). i would love it if someone helped me out with the salon costs via the gift certificate.

Lol good question, I should have mentioned that yes, they all love Coach 🙂

I vote for the Clutch, but I love purses, and I think something that doesn’t have to be centered around your wedding would be nice.

I vote for the clutch – I like gifts that are frivolous and unnecessary. If you were giving them a frivolous spa day it would be different but because they would use it for the wedding I vote for the clutch!
And I think a girl can never have too many clutches… or coach clutches for that matter LOL (I have 2 and would love to get another one!)

If your bridesmaids love coach then I say go with the purse! Personally I dont like coach so I would appreciate the salon more..but its totally a matter of personal preference!

I don’t like Coach, so I wouldn’t want that. But you said your BMs do, so I’d go for that. I don’t really like gift certificates because they so clearly advertise how much you spent. But–are your BMs paying for their own hair? If so, I’d give them the gift certficate so they don’t have to. If you’re paying for their hair, then I think the clutch would be more fun.

The salon might be nice, but then it’s gone (and on your wedding day). I think since it’s a gift for their presence, it should be something that endures a bit more – the purse!

I vote for Coach. But a nice spa treatment at a salon would be cool, too… everyone (almost!) likes massages!

I picked the small coach purse. I think it’s more of a keepsake. However, I may be a little biased as I am in dire need of a new clutch!

Well, I’m all about purses, but I think the salon idea is great too! Honestly, I think they’d both be wonderful gifts!!

I vote for the clutch because it seems more of a sentimental keepsake than the gift certificate.
