    its all good- overall but that necklace is a “taste” thing and I personally think it’s not pretty at all.

    I think you are going way above and beyond!! There is no way I can spend that much per bridal party person, but that is soo nice of you. I’d love it all!

    I would agree that the necklace might not be everyone’s taste, maybe something simpler but still elegant? Can’t go wrong with simple pendant for your bridesmaids! =)

    I think they are nice gifts, but if you are concerned about budget I think you can do better.

    I would forgo the survival kits and the thank you box. Instead, get a couple big bottles of champagne and OJ and have mimosas in the getting ready room. Make sure you provide breakfast, lunch, and waters and your party will love you for it!

    I would be wary of spending $100 on the vintage inspired shaving kits.  While I think they are awesome, it is very unlikely that most of the groomsmen will use them, unless they are already into shaving that way.  My spouse would probably try it once, out of intrigue, but that would be that and it would end up relegated to the back of the bathroom cupboard.  Like I said, awesome, but pricey for something that will likely go unused by most.

    The liquor and brownie kits are rocking, I love them.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think i’d rather get some edibles/drinkables. Mainly because getting jewelry or other gifts is SO hard to find things everyone will like.

    Gourmet brownies/cookies/snacks, maybe even chocolates and the little bottles of alcohol are super cute.

    The art of vintage shaving is very specific and some men do not like it at all. I’m guessing your theme is Vintage but I’d double check those would be appreciated at all. If the necklace is being worn on the day of the wedding I see no problem witih the bridesmaids one.

    My FI does classic shaving including straight razor but it is a more time consuming endevor and they will need additional blades which are not always easy to find depending on the country you live in ๐Ÿ™‚

    FWIW, i actually like the necklace but when i am gifted jewelry as a BM i understand that the bride is choosing something she likes that will go with the wedding’s look. even when it hasnt been my exact style, i’ve loved all the jewelry i’ve gotten in weddings because it always reminds me of being a part of that experience.

    as far as the shaving kits go, i agree they are awesome but might be a bit expensive if guys dont take to using them.

    what about arranging for a morning-of hot shave for all the guys? that would probably only run you about $30-40 each and they would love it, not have to do any work and look spiffy for the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the shaving kit and necklaces are really cool ideas – but you shouldn’t spend that much money unless you know for a fact that they will all actually like / use them.  My guy definitely wouldn’t take the effort to shave with that kit, and the necklace isn’t my taste (although very pretty) so I would literally never wear it.  Make sure the gift is an actual gift they’d want and love and use, rather than another prop to fit your theme….

    I love the day-of gifts!

    @pigzfly:  i totally agree.

    your gifts are very generous but will they “use” them???  i know that my dh for example had a collection of monogrammed flasks, beer steins, and other useless gm paraphernalia.  he never used them and they all went to the good will.

    just remember, not all gifts have to match.  ask yourself, what would i buy them for their birthday or christmas?  if they won’t appreciate a shaving kit, don’t waste your money on one.

    guys can sometimes be difficult to buy for.  we had this issue with my man of honour but when we took the “wedding” part out of it and just thought of a “gift”, it was very easy.   he loves to grill and to cook.  we got him a great set of steak knives (he loved the ones that i had) and a large skillet that i know he would use.  perfect.  he uses them all of the time.  now that’s $100 well spent.
