    Would it maybe be easier/ less hassle to buy them all personal gifts, you obviously know them well enough to know what they like, it saves the ordeal of having to please everyone? Maybe buy them jewellery that suits their different tastes or pj’s that suit their bodyshape/taste.


    I agree that its important to buy them something practical that they’ll use again but I’m a bit sentimental and would like them to have something they can keep, so although make-up makes a great b’day present (especially if they’re reluctant to splurge) its not very sentimental.


    Good Luck!

    Man you’ve got a tough job!  Do your bridesmaids have any hobbies in common?  Maybe one like pottery and another likes wine, you could give them gift cerftificates for a class on their hobby (pottery spinning, wine tasting class…).

    I say going more personal is the way to go.

    I’m going to give them a little basket of silly stuff, and then one really nice personal gift. My Maid/Matron of Honor is a writer, she’s getting a leather journal with her name embossed on it. My Bridesmaid or Best Man is a drinker so she’s getting a set of Tiffany beer glasses.

    I think your PJ idea is really cute.  I got mine robes from Lands End, monogrammed with their names on them.  They’re on sale right now, too.  Practical, that’s for sure.  Personal too.  I got the idea from another thread on this board.

    A really cute gift idea one of my friends did was have purses made for us.  She picked fabric that represented us and then had each one made.  Many of us still use them today and that was 7 years ago.  If you’re interested, I know a couple places who make these.

    I have the same question. I’m thinking of getting them a necklace and earings set that they can wear on my wedding day. The other popular gifts are beach totes, personalized totes, pink flasks.. and I forget the rest! So many options. I think you should get them something personalized that’s what I would want. That or jewelry.

    After much thought and searching I am getting my briadsmaid a Tiffany and Co. necklace. Something that will last forever and always remind her of the special day that she shared with us.

    I like the mae up idea.  What girl doesn’t like to do a little shopping in Sephora!  What if you paired it up with a nice clutch for everyone so they have something to put their m/u in?  I’m getting custom clutches made through an Etsy seller and the artist is really helpful in terms of helping with colors and fabrics that will match your color scheme!  PM if you want the name!
