Well were about 8 months out from the wedding but we found a buy one get one free sale today so we got watches for the GM’s 🙂 My partner wanted watches from the very begining but i didnt think we were going to be able to afford them so I was very surprised.
Im still at a loss as what to get for my BM’s but I have months to organise that
What are you getting your BM’s and GM’s?

No idea what Fiance is getting the guys (that’s one thing that is totally not my problem haha)
As for the Bms, I just recently decided I’m going to do a spa day in lieu of gifts. I found a really cute spa that opened up back home that as excellent packages and prices. I’m very excited about it.

oh i wish that was possible! But for the $50 that i would be spending on them i dont think it would get much past a pedi here 🙁
Actually i think i may amend this to add a poll… what do you think is a appropriate amount for Bridesmaid or Best Man & GM’s gifts.

I thought about this for ages. In the end I bought the BMs their accessories for the day, though I wish I’ve have also been able to afford to get them their make-up done for the day, which I know many bees suggest doing. It’s a hard one really, I know, as buying stuff for them for your day is it really a gift but then again do they really want to be buying stuff for your day out of their own pocket, I don’t know and I suppose everyone’s view is different. When I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man I appreciated the gifts that we wore on the day and enjoy using them now.

Our guys got Converse and argyle socks. My girls got probably more than I should have lol. I built them a spa kit with all the products, a massager, a candle and a monogrammed robe as well as buying them earrings and a bracelet to go with their dresses and a day-of emergency kit.

Actually, I found a place that does a 30 min massage, a facial and foot scrub for $50. I’m not really spending a ton of my BMs. I would if I could, but money is tight for us. I figured I’d get them a gift certificate for $50 or so, then they can do what they want with it on our spa day, and then if they want more than that it’s up to them.

*Sigh* our day spas are NO where near that price here…. just to get a set of acrylics or gels costs $50 – $60 at one of those nail bars.
