    People will disagree with me, but I think some of the gift giving trends have gotten out of hand between the proposal boxes and bachelorette presents, etc. I think you should stick with what you have and write each bridesmaid a really nice note. Focus on what you think will make each bridesmaid feel appreciated (and sometimes that’s not a physical gift).

    Honestly, between the proposal box and the robes, I think you’ve done enough. There’s no need to break your bank.

    I think most of those items are for you and your pictures, not gifts chosen with their individual tastes/interests/ hobbies in mind.

    The robes, bracelet, tumblers and professional hair styling are bound to be featured in your photographs, aren’t they?

    That is like a husband getting his wife a vacuum cleaner for her birthday. He will benefit from it just as much as her. It ‘s certainly not a thoughtful gift chosen with her interests in mind.

    I’m struggling with that to gift for my bridesmaids too, they are all so different and I’m trying not to get them “prop” gifts. I think what you have chosen is great. I really don’t think think you should worry about anything else and I definitely don’t think you are choosing “prop” gifts. I would just remember to keep your bridesmaids personalities in mind.

    Instead of the jewelry, I’d suggest buying them a gift as if it’s their birthday.  Buy them something they’d like based on their interests, not because its a matchy-matchy gift for all of them.
