    I’m doing gifts to my girls and he’s doing gifts to his guys. I’m also putting together little groomsmen grooming kits for the day because one of our GM has a…. smelly… odour issue…. I feel awful saying that but the guy stinks! LOL! So I’m putting together little kits with deoderant, mini colognes, etc for all of them.

    I would say each of you gives the gifts to your attendants as individuals.  But unless you are worried about signing a card or something it’s not very obvious who the giver is any way.

    I would say that the thought/sentiment is from both of us…but I’m in charge of the actual gifts to my girls, and he’s in charge of teh gifts to his guys (although I might end up picking them out if he doesn’t do it!).

    We see the gifts as thank you gifts. Thank you for being my/his friend and for supporting me/him in this whole endevaour. Since I asked the bridesmaids to be in the wedding party and he asked the groomsmen, we will be treating them as gifts from each of us as individuals.

    How close are you to the guys and vice versa for your FI?

    I think it could be person dependent.  Meaning, if you are close to one of his GM, then address the gift from both of you.  Or, if you have a BM that only you are close to – then address it just from you.

    As a BM, I’d expect it to be from the person I’m standing up there for (most typically the bride).  I wouldn’t think it was odd if the gift was from both the groom and the bride, but it seems to make it more personable if it was from the bride.

    We each did o ur own gifts for our attendants. They each got something for the wedding and then another gift.

    Our wedding party is all family, and we have been together of just over 10 years, so the gifts will be from both of us; however, my FI will be handing the guys theirs and I will be handing the girls theirs.

    The thought is from both but for me the gifts were me to my MOH and my husband to his BM
