Our wedding is still 7 months away, but i am thinking about what I am going to get my girls for gifts. I was thinking about getting the a monogramed bag (something they will actually use) with personalized items inside. For example, my Maid/Matron of Honor loves to cook so i was thinking a personalized apron, martini glass and earrings to go with the dress. I think these will be good gifts, but i just wanted another opinion. Any advice would be appreciated 🙂

That sounds cute! I like the idea of getting them little things they’ll use versus one nice thing that’ll end up in the back of their closet

Here’s what I’m giving my girls – total cost of about $50 not including the dress/hair/makeup –
- We are paying for their bridesmaids dresses, hair, and makeup (although I don’t really consider it a gift, although it is very nice I think).
- Monogrammed bag that is NOT wedding themed. Just has a cute design and their initals on it.
- Camelbak water bottle. I use them all the time, two of my girls do, and I think they are just awesome and something it is nice to get a new one of ocassionally.
- A robe that they can wear to get ready in but then that is also very pretty and not wedding-themed. It is a floral light-weight robe, custom made to their sizes (robes can be hard to find for pregnant/plus-size).
- A light-reading chick lit book I picked out different for each of them.
- I’ll probably stick some snacks/candy/weekend survival type stuff in there too.

I love cooking, and people keeps giving me aprons – it’s a pain, you don’t need more than one, tops two!
You could perhaps give them a nice cookbook instead, and write something sweet on the first page.

I think it’s a good idea, and I think eocenia‘s idea about the cookbook is awesome, too!

Bags are a great idea, plus it’s always fun to open a new bag with fun little gifts inside! You have some great gift ideas, I love the personalization! If you have a bridesmaid who loves to travel you should look into a bra bag, there are a lot of cute designs!
Have fun shopping! 😀
