I think they’re good ideas, but the pictures you show aren’t really related.  They have no common theme/color/pattern to tie them together, and just look sort of random.  I think if you tied them all together a little better, it would be a fantastic idea.  I love the idea of doing something completely non-wedding related so they can use it after the wedding!

I Loooooove the stamp! That is one of the best ideas I’ve seen! All the others are great too. I’m also not doing anything wedding related.

I love the stamp, I never would have thought of that and I think it is a fantastic idea!

I do have to agree with @abbie017: though, it woudl be nice to have something to tie everything together, like a common color or pattern.

Those are all adorable! I really love the makeup case, especially.

I love the rubber stamp, but personally would be unlikely to use a canvas tote bag. Are your BMs girls who would appreciate it?

I’m going to go against the popular opinion here but here’s my honest opinion: are these things your bridesmaids will actually use?  Some of these gifts remind me of Christmas gifts I’ve gotten from people who don’t really know me, and I end up just putting them in a drawer (umbrella, pencil pouch).  I could see using the tote bag if it’s good quality and size, but the other things I just don’t really get.  In particular, I’m not sure what I would use a rubber stamp of my name for.  I have about 30 umbrellas, I don’t know why I would use a pencil pouch (maybe as a travel makeup case?) and I know I wouldn’t use a passport holder because I just carry it as is.  BUT, the question is would your girls use these things?  I’m not trying to be a downer, but I’m just giving my honest opinion – if you think your girls will appreciate and use these trinkets, then go for it!  I do love the idea of getting them non-wedding related items that they will use later!

@hardtoconcentrate:  I do have to agree on the passport holder.  Some people don’t travel out of country, thus it would go unused.

I think those are great ideas, the only thing I would change is giving them a common underlying theme..?

I love the stamp idea.  You could get them some stationary to use with it.

That wallet looks amazing!  I would be so happy with that.
