So I’m at a loss. Each of my bridesmaids are very different. So i’m not sure what to get them for gifts. I have 7 of them an am hoping to budget about 40-50$ each for them. I have only one who drinks, none of them really wear jewellry, too many of them have too many specialty or nice coffee mugs, none of them are really makeup wearers. I also didn’t want to get them something for the day (didn’t want to get them jewellry to wear day of, or robes, etc.).
Any ideas? I’ve thought of getting them personalized gifts too, so each something different and not all the same.. but i don’t know what any of them would even like, i’m open to any ideas then really!

i’m not really a gift person unless it’s something i asked for. For that reason, I wanted to get my bridesmaids gifts that they’d actually ENJOY and use. So I got them poo pourri, dry shampoo, bobby pins (you can never have enough, amiright?), and a getting ready outfit that they chose (choice between robe, pajamas, romper, etc). I also got them individual gifts.

What would you give them for their individual birthdays? Find something for each person that would make that person happy–a bottle fo wine for one, a spa GC for another, a restaurant GC, flowers, candy, Sephora, …

Get them personal gifts not wedding related. For our bridal party we got them things that they were interested in. Pretend it’s their birthday and go from there

Instead of focussing on what they don’t do or don’t like, take a few moments to think of what they do like/do/wear etc
Buy them each a gift chosen for them as individuals, not bridesmaids. The gifts don’t have to be all the same.
You are right to stay away from “day of” things like robes, hangers, personalized wine glasses etc. Those are props, not gifts.

I’m getting them a make-up bag with their name on it ($12 Etsy), a $50 Sephora gift card, and a soft cotton nightshirt to wear while getting ready that’s from Gap and could be reused ($25), no silly “bridesmaid” wording.
Most of my bridesmaids are flying in so I didn’t want to give them anything too bulky, and I hate useless knick-knacks.
