I am debating on what gift to get for my two Bridesmaid or Best Man and my Maid/Matron of Honor and would love your input.
Right now I am giving them shirts with their “titles” on them, a pair of earrings made THIS awesome Etsy seller (and fellow bee) and I’m paying to have their hair and make up done. I feel that this isn’t enough (my Fiance disagrees).
I am debating between a personalized compact mirror (see here) or those foldable flats/sandals (see here) that come in a little tote. Both have practical applications so I’m really torn and they are about the same price.
Which would you rather have? Or do you have another suggestion around the $20.00 price tag?

I’m curious to see the results, since I’ve been eyeing similar flats! So I guess I vote for those.

@Treejewel19: Treejewel, I said neither, but only b/c I personally would not want or use either of those things. I have a million compacts and I just don’t like the shoes. BUT, if you think your BM’s would like them, then I think either of them would be a useful gift – perhaps the compact more so than the shoes.
Do any of the ladies drink coffee? Honestly I think a $20 starbucks gift card could work too, but you might be opposed to gift cards.

@AshleyR83: You have a valid point, I definitely only use a compact when it attached to my face makeup, and not everyone likes flats. But who wouldn’t love a Starbucks gift card?? If you throw in a personal, meaningful note to each bridesmaid I think that would be great.

@futuremrsfitz18: I agree. I know some people (including my mother) think gift cards are tacky, but I love giving and receiving them.

Thanks ladies for your input. Sadly I am the real coffee drinker of the group and a Starbuck’s gift card wouldn’t really be a good fit for these ladies. I am also somewhat opposed to gift cards for this particular situation….although love them for birthdays, Christmas etc.
Also, those shoes aren’t really about loving flats (I rarely wear them myself). They are more about keeping them in your car or purse should you go out at night etc. They definitely aren’t something you wear by choice but rather if you end up with sore feet.
Keep the ideas coming!

I voted for compact mirror. I like to keep one in every purse I have so I can never have too many.

I voted for the flats because I would love to receive them as a gift!

I voted for the flats. They could put them on at the end of the night if their feet hurt from dancing in heels and they are definitley something that can be used afterwards.

For those bees that like the shoes would you rather have basic black? Or another fun color (pink, gold, silver, zebra, cheetah)?

@Treejewel19: I like the metallic options (gold, sliver) because they are neutral but a little more fun than basic black

I would say black or silver for the flats. They will go with pretty much everything then.

What do you think of jewelry rolls? I’m considering them as part of my bridesmaid gifts. You can find a bunch of really cute ones on Etsy!

I’d do the gold flats 🙂
That being said… I may actually do that 🙂
ETA: What color are your bridesmaids dresses? I’d make sure to do a color that matches them in case they end up wanting to use them that night.

OMG THOSE EARRINGS SOUND GORGEOUS! WHAT A TALENTED FRIEND AND FELLOW BEE YOU HAVE!
haha Okay, but seriously, I vote for the compact because in all honesty I personally wouldn’t have a use for the flats, but I apply lipstick like, all day long. But instead of my real name, I’d want it to be like a script BITCH or something.
