I’m sure I am not the first to ask this question, but ask it I will anyways!
What did you get for your girls as gifts?
I’m getting them faux fur wraps for outdoor pictures and likely some cute mitts, but I’m undecided on the main gift. I have always wanted to get them each a Fossil watch, but I am terrified they won’t like them.
Would it be better to get them all the same watch or get them different ones with a bit of each of their personal styles?

This is what I’ve given my girls so far:
This is how I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor
For my Bridesmaid or Best Man
I’m planning on getting both girls coach wristlets, making them earrings, and getting them some gift certificates. Not sure what else though, would love to hear what other bees are doing.

I keep buying stuff for my bridesmaids I need to stop! Asking them to be my bridesmaids I got them totes, bottel of wine and some other small stuff. For throwing my shower I bought them their shoes and gave them a $25 gift card to use towards getting their hair done, Maid/Matron of Honor I paid for her whole appointment. The morning before rehearsal when they meet at the hotel I am giving them personalized hangers to hang up their dresses. Then we are taking them to the spa for manis and pedis. For the night of the rehearsal dinner, I am giving them small coach purses and earrings from Lia Sophia. That night in the room, they are all staying with me, I am giving them Robes for the next day and a bridesmaid survival kit I made with stuff they may need the next day and a starbucks gift card. There is a starbucks in our hotel lobby. Then the morning at the salon I am giving them hand painted wine glasses with their initial on it and their favorite bottle of wine or champagne with it. I also got them cute wine bottle stoppers and stickers for the bottom of their shoes that say team bride but thats not really a “gift”. Im sure there will end up being more stuff I give them. I probably went a little overboard but these girls mean so much to me I just want them to know how much I appreciate them! Guess Ive always been one of those people that show my love with gifts….something im sure my fiance doesnt mind! lol

I paid for their jewelry and for the girls who wanted hair/makeup I paid for that too, but I didn’t force hair/makeup on them if they didn’t want it. And I don’t consider those to be gifts, since those were part of their wedding day gear.
For their gifts I gave each girl:
-Satin pajama set from Victorias Secret. I got them the same set each but picked a color/pattern that reflected their style
-A costume jewelry type ring, same basic style but again in a pattern to reflect their personality, and I kept one for myself so we can be all matchy-matchy if we want
-A fancy teapot, same basic gift but a different model for each girl (for my friend who infuses her own vodka, I picked a teapot with an herbal infuser; for my friend who loves iced tea I picked a teapot with a chiller insert; etc)
-Small box of fancy chocolates from Teuscher in Boston
-And a “wrist item”, for my rock-and-roller that was a thick cuff bracelet; for my cutesy girl it was a Hello Kitty watch

Bridesmaid gifts – A personalized clutch (has a little tag w/ their name on the inside) and earrings that I chose specifically for each girl – they are welcome to wear them on the wedding day but do not have to.
Bridesmaid or Best Man #1
And for my Maid/Matron of Honor (the clutch in this picture is red, but the one I got is burgundy like the one above)
Shower Hostess Gifts – a little cute funny chocolate bar frame, personalized waffle kimono robes, a candle, and a card, all in their favorite color – blue for my Maid/Matron of Honor, purple for my Bridesmaid or Best Man.
I also have a Bridesman, and for his wedding gift, I got him cufflinks and a watch.
