I’ve started the (very) early hunt for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. One of my favorite stores for winter apparel is having a BOGO sale in a couple days and I really want to take advantage. I plan on choosing two styles, and then give half my BMs one style and the other half the other style. I plan on choosing one beanie style, and one “accessory” style. Which two styles would you prefer? Or, do you think I should stick with buying the same style for everyone just in different colors? Thanks for the help!
1. Beanie with pom pom
2. Plain beanie

I would buy them each an individual gift chosen especially for them. Giving all the BM’s the same gift, even if they are slightly different, is not a very thoughtful gift in my world.

julies1949 : good point! I should’ve mentioned this is going to be just one part of the gifts I’ll give them, not the only thing. So I’ll still be buying them each their own gift, but I thought this was too good of a deal to pass up and know they’d all go to good use.

I’m not into the patch on the front of any headgear. It’s probably a branding thing I don’t understand but it irks me. The scarf I would love.

Your wedding date is listed as May. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, I don’t think winter hats and scarves are a great gift in May. It screams “seasonal clearance” (which is probably why they are BOGO) plus it will be 5 months before anyone can actually use them— plenty of time for them to be lost or forgotten. Pick something that can be enjoyed right away and also makes sense for the weather outside.

I agree with PP that its a weird bridesmaid gift for a May wedding (as I see that you live in the US). Otherwise I like the scarf the best, I think they are the most universal and versatile.

Horseradish : oh that’s a great point! It didn’t even occur to me to think about the season, whoops. I’ll probably forgo these gift ideas then and try to come up with ideas more seasonally appropriate. Thanks for the feedback!
