I have 3 bridesmaids and all of them are in their 30’s (30-37). I feel like they wouldn’t like the typical bridesmaids gifts such as monogrammed items, clutches, etc but I can’t think of anything creative to get them. None of them are big jewelry wearers either.
Does a gift certificate to a spa sound good? Any other suggestions? What did you get your “older” bridesmaids?

I would love a spa gift certificate! I got my BMs their shoes and also made personalized coffee mugs that we used the morning of the wedding.

My bridesmaids are 32-35. I’m currently leaning towards wine related gifts. It’s something we all love and bond over. I’m thinking a wine tote, a bottle of bridesmaid red or white (it’s an actual brand), and maybe handpainted wine glasses. The last wedding I was in (June 2010) we received a coach wristlet and I use it often.

I found these cute photo totes on the Bed Bath and Beyond website for $2.49 per bag. Do your maids have families? Kids? They may like them.

Wow! So glad I read this post! I ordered 8 of those…all for xmas gifts for next year. My MIL is sooo hard to please and even if she doesn’t love this, it can be used for anything and is so cheap! Thanks!
Oh…and I’m 35 and think the above gifts are great! Another suggestion…some pretty Swarovski jewelry? I know that everyone I’ve given Swarovkski gifts to (bracelets, earrings, etc…) love them. You can make it yourself, or find nice things on Etsy. Or, if you have a place where the International Gem show comes (intergem.com)…you can find gorgeous Swarovkski bracelets for $12 each. Just a thought…

I would get them a nice gift certificate, some sort of kitchen utensil, a plant, or a beach towel!
