I’m at the point in my wedding planning where I’m starting to think about what gifts to get my bridesmaids. I know this has been discussed before on Weddingbee, but I wanted to start a discussion to get some ideas going. What would you love to get as a bridesmaid? What are some unique ideas? I’ll get the ideas flowing…
I thought a practical gift would be Vera Bradley curling iron covers, to slip your straightener or curling iron in when you’re traveling so you don’t scorch or melt anything in your luggage. What are your ideas?

I wanted to give my BM’s something special that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves. I stumbled upon http://www.yoyosilver.com one day and they sell authentic Tiffany jewelry at a fraction of the cost. I am buying each girl a tiffany bangle in silver. Classic and elegant, I’m sure they’ll all get a lot of wear out of them.

my BMs are coming in from all over the US. i’m making each of them a little "emergency/survival kit" with things like a manicure set, deodorant, bandaids, hairspray, lipgloss, gum, etc. all tucked into red & black travel bags that came with a matching clutch. (you can google "bridesmaid survival kit" to get more suggestions)
i’m also getting each Bridesmaid or Best Man custom-designed chuck taylors and jewelry sets to wear with their dresses. and then stuffing all of that into cute canvas totes that i got on sale at bath & body works for only $10 each and they’re HUGE!

I love the idea of a survival kit!
I’m leaning towards personalized bags for my girls as they are all so different and are at very different stages in their lives.
They will for sure all be getting custom (made by me) necklaces (none of them wear earrings!) to co-ordinate with their jewelry.

My gift to my 3 bridesmaids will be dress, jewelry, hair and make up for the day.

I gave my bridesmaids personalized letterpress stationery from the amazing, Atlas & Campbell. My girls loved this gift. It is a unique and useful present – not to mention so pretty.

I recently bought my bridesmaids these gorgeous Robes. I have seen them on wedding blogs and fell in love with them a while ago! And i previously bought one for me before and so i know they will just love them.

I’ll just tell y’all what I’m planning on buying my bridesmaids. I want to do a gift bag with a few goodies in there, and this is what’s on my shopping list:
*Swarovski beaded bracelets off Etsy
*Personalised compact mirrors with each BM’s name on it
*Cute sleeping mask with ‘fab bridesmaid’ on it from confetti.co.uk
*Personalised pink damask drink flasks with diamante initial on them
and for my MOH- all this plus a Vera Wang silver plated pic frame from her wedding ‘love knots’ range with a poem saying I owe her a pic from the day

I’m thinking of getting my BMs some cute handmade jewelry that they can wear to the wedding and after. And then I’m thinking of getting personalized totes and make up bags to go with it.
Sandsational Sparkle has a lot of choices:

I think a great bridesmaid gift (which my daughter did) are robes! She did the gorgeous Plum Pretty Sugar robes which made for beautiful getting ready photos. Also, the girls still get great use out of them. I love that fact that her getting ready photos came out flawless. You can also add to a special bracelet to the gift as well or frame a getting ready photo for each girl later on as an extra thank you
