I’ve been working on my Bridesmaids gifts and I’m unsure if I’m finished or not. I am so grateful to the girls who are standing up with me and the time, commitment and expense they’re all going too to be part of the wedding. Just as a little background info they are all paying for their dresses and alterations where needed and everyone also has to drive and stay overnight at a hotel to attend the rehearsal and wedding. So tell me if you think these gifts are enough to show my appreciation:
- Pashmina Wrap (real pashmina)
- Small Yankee Candle
- Bottle of Philosophy body wash
- A custom “Bagette” make up case with pictures of them and/or their families or pets on both sides. Inside each bagette I’ve created a “shemergency” kit with things like emery boards, stain remover, pain reliever, dental floss, bandaids, lipbalm, granola bar, safety pins, etc.
I’m putting everything in a cute basket. Oh, I’m also paying for their hair and make-up the day of, but I don’t really consider that a gift for them since its for our wedding. So what do you think bees, enough or should I add one or two more things? If so, suggestions?
Thanks for your input!

I think the basket with a personal note to each of them would be perfect. I would love to receive that if I were them.

I think it’s appropriate. I’d be really happy to get those gifts. It’s like an expensive adult goody bag from a party.

You can always add more things and go way overboard but usually you just get a gift and you’ve already gotten them a basket of gifts so I think you have more than enough and paying for their hair/make-up is a gift. I’ve always had to pay for those things. If you really are looking for something else to add the only thing I could even think of would be a necklace.

I think these are great gifts! I’d be really happy to get all that as a thank you for being in someone’s wedding.

I’d love to get that stuff as a gift if I were a BM. You put my gift idea for my BMs to shame! I think you definitely have enough, especially since you are also paying for their hair/makeup. Good job!

I think considering you are paying for hair/makeup it’s a ton of stuff!! Great job, I love the makeup baguette idea, I think I might do the same thing. Thanks for the inspiration!! Where did you end up ordering if you don’t mind me asking?

Hey Bees- thanks for the input! Very much appreciated.
Schrutebeets (love that name), I ordered the bagettes from here:
and they are awesome! I got the medium make-up case and they are very, very well done – the pictures on the bag are clear and sharp and beautiful and the girls that own the company were extremely helpful – I highly recommend them.

That sounds wonderful, we are still pretty far away from our wedding date but I want to do something similar for my girls the day of! Thanks for the tip on the website.

Wow! That’s WAY more than I have ever seen. The wedding I was in last weekend we were given earrings and a clutch wallet. They were nice too! The gifts you listed sound amazing! I know any BM would love to receive them!

You’re ladies are being spoiled rotten by you…in a good way. 🙂 I’m sure they will love it all.
