I have one maid of honor and one bridesmaid. Here are the gifts I was planning on.
1. A robe for each woman that they can reuse after the wedding. They use robes a lot.
2. Reef sandals. Both of my bridesmaids where flip flops a lot and these would be used a lot after the wedding.
3. A personalized tote that they can use since they’re coming from out of town to lug items in and also on their shopping trips back home.
What do you think?

They are cute gifts. I wouldnt consider their hair and makeup as a gift. It is so they look how you want for your day = not a gift. But the other things are cute if you are sure they will like them.

Super cute gifts. I would not do black and orange colors together as most people will think of halloween and the girls may feel limited to only using the bags in the fall. Personally I would not carry a black and orange bag around even as a tote after halloween. Maybe do all orange or all black that way it can be more versatile?
Just a little side note: Paying for their hair and make up is technically not a gift to them (yeah they dont have to pay for it, but they wouldnt be having it done in the first place if it wasnt for your wedding).

Could you do the totes without the names on them? Personalized items seem more suited to a young girl than to a grown woman? Also I agree with PP who says the hair and makeup shouldn’t be counted as gifts since they’re for your wedding and not treats for the girls. Of course it’s very generous of you to give them the hair and makeup services, just don’t tally them as gifts.

@SparkleBee11: depending on the person, black & orange could be a good option. I’m a HUGE Giant’s baseball fan & I would love a black & orange tote.
@jessyrez: I think the gifts you have in mind are great ideas. Also offering to pay for the hair makeup is such a nice gesture! I’ve never had a bride offer to pay for those types of things, but would have totally appreciated it!

Yes definitley I see what you mean about the hair and makeup and I agree they won’t be towards gifts at all. What about a different type of tote?

I think they are great! I’d love to receive these things, as I’d definitely use them all!

I like the robe and flip flops, but I would definitely get rid of the tote. I just have no need for totes, especially with my name embroidered on them. But some girls love having their names on everything!
