I’m just beginning to look for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts (and hopefully am trying to catch a sale or two along the way), but I’ve found two general ideas for my BMs and need some help. Which of these two items would you rather recieve?
1. A Tiffany necklace (style to be determined, but probably either the initial one or something else pretty classic)
2. A higher end leather wallet (Coach, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, etc.)
I’m asking ONLY about these two items, not about whether you’d want hair/makeup/dress and such paid for. If you don’t like either idea, please leave a comment suggesting a MATERIAL ITEM you would like to receive.

I would love to get both but think the Tiffany necklace is a better gift. Would you let the girls wear the necklaces at the wedding?

They’re both great options. I think I’d personally prefer the wallet but would be happy with either.

@Mrs. Fireworks: Thanks for your input! Sure, if they wanted to 🙂

I voted necklace because style of wallets becomes an issue for me. I’m very particular about which brands I use and which styles I like, so unless you know they’d all get use out of them, I’d go with a necklace. The classic heart engraved with their initials from Tiffany’s would be gorgeous!

I prefer the necklace.
I like for my wallets to match my purses. Like if I’m wearing a LV purse, I want an LV matching walltet.

I love a Marc Jacobs wallet, but the tiffany initial necklaces are probably more universally appealing.

I love the idea of a Tiffany’s necklace. I don’t think you can go wrong with that. Wallets are much more a personal preference thing, so I would worry about picking out a style that everyone would like/use.

I voted necklace as well because I’m very particular about the style of wallet I carry. But everyone should love jewerly 🙂

I carry a guys tri-fold wallet because chick wallets don’t fit in your pocket, so a oretty girl wallet, and especially an exspensive one (I just don’t get them, they cost twice as much because who puts their name on the label) would be totally wasted. Of course I also wouldn’t wear a Tiffany necklace because I pretty much wear the same ones all thte time, but you would have to know your BMs and their tastes.

I like both ideas actually, but I’d probably lean more towards the Tiffany necklace. I’ve had a friend buy me a wallet before and it wasn’t my style (I like large wallets) so I never used it. A necklace I could wear to work everyday.

I voted the wallet because I personally would never wear an initial or heart anything around my neck. That’s just me, though. But, I think I’ve met more girls than not that hate hearts.

Thanks ladies, you’ve been so helpful! The truth is that I probably won’t get all my girls the same thing, but I wanted to find out which was more universally appealing to everyone in the case that I do. I totally understand the wallet being a choice that’s very particular to each girl, but I know my BM’s tastes very well.
That being said, again, you were all very helpful, because as a girl who would prefer a wallet, I wanted to see if anyone felt that the necklace is frivolous and would never actually wear it again 😉

I voted neither, but between those two I would prefer the necklace.
I would really love a high-end candle or two, like Diptyque, or something else kind of decadent for the home.

Funny you posted this because I am currently shopping for Marc Jacobs wallets for my MOHs and Marc Jacobs make-up cases for the BMs!
So I obviously think a wallet would be the better choice. I never liked self serving gifts like jewelry for the wedding day, though a Tiffany necklace is obviously for after too. But you know your BMs so pick what they would love most!
