I am getting my girls Kendra Scott bangles. Each one with different color stones to reflect their personality. I also thought about monogrammed clutches.

I know this is not a super popular opinion on here, but I actually like getting jewelry as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I don’t buy a lot of jewelry for myself so I love receiving it as a gift.

mrsb090917 :  The part of the gift that I gave to my BMs that they all love and still use and talk about… Contigo travel mugs. I had them personalized and got them different colors that suit them each. They all still use them and talk about how great they are.

There’s been a bit of a theme with my friends in that we got each other pajamas so I did the same for my bridesmaids.  But I didn’t get them each the same kind.  One of my friend prefers shorts sets and the other prefers pants sets so I did personalizt it. I also got each of them a wristlet which they loved.

My favorite bridesmaids gifts have been pajamas (the softest pair I’ve ever gotten and one of my favorites in my rotation) and a set of really nice makeup brushes.  Good makeup brushes are worth their weight in gold and I never realized it until I actually had an expensive set.

Really unique gift I received as a BM-  our wedding party each received an 80s/90s themed retro scrapbook with a lovely note from the grooms saying ‘we’ve known you since (insert year or memorable moment) and so happy you’ve been part of our lives- (insert 4 or 5 touching lines of personalized note) and to use the scrapbook for memories and treasured photos and mementos. Each person also received a little gift bag of retro candies/chocolate bars etc to go with it. Loved this!

I gave a different gift to each girl that fit with their interests.

I got my sister a custom jewelry box with her nickname on it. She LOVED it. My other Maid/Matron of Honor, I got her a really nice wooden pen set and gorgeous paper to go with it (she loves pens and has a tonne of penpals). I got another Bridesmaid or Best Man a leather camera strap with her nickname on it, she loved it! And the other Bridesmaid or Best Man got a really nice compact mirror with floral engravings on it because she’s really into hair and makeup and beauty. Also got each girl a Mecca gift voucher, and I made a set of spa stuff with scrubs and soaks etc for each girl as well, made with all natural ingredients because they all have sensitive skin.

I’m a big fan of consumable gifts. Wine, liquor dinner out, food, etc. I also loved getting a massage/mani/pedi coupon to a nearby spa. It was nice because she gave it outright and I could go when I needed it rather than going on her schedule for some sort of Bridesmaid or Best Man event.

I was a bridesmaid at my sisters wedding last year and she bought us all earrings, I thought it was lovely, I wore them on her special day and still wear them out often. In keeping with this idea, my bridesmaids are buying their own dresses and paying for their hair and make up, so I want to buy them their jewelry set for the wedding day, and hopefully they will be able to use it afterwards!
