Trying to decide what to buy my girls as their bridesmaid gift and have whittled it down to a couple of decisions – would love to hear your thoughts on which you think is nicest… plus what you have bought for your girls!
I’ve found it tough as my girls are all very different – buying jewellery would be very difficult, and one of the doesn’t wear jewellery at all. So this was what I came up with!
Vera Wang Love Knots champagne flutes – http://www.selfridges.com/en/Features-Gifts/Categories/Wedding-engagement/Crystal/Love-Knots-toasting-flutes-pair_547-10010-54735805748/
Vera Wang With Love champagne flutes – http://www.selfridges.com/en/Home-Tech/Categories/Dining-room/Glassware/Glasses/Glass/With-Love-toasting-flutes_547-10010-57003606117/
Vera Wang Love Knots Mirror – http://uk.wwrd.com/en/uk/vera-wang-gifts+accessories/vera-wang-love-knots-purse-mirror-with-pouch/invt/044228004969/
The mirror is nearer to the budget I had in mind, but think I may be swaying towards the one of the champagne flute sets, as I think they would use them more.
As always, thanks in advance for your thoughts 🙂

I actually have the first set of champagne flutes – the Love Knots – I registered for them at Bed Bath and Beyond and received them on the wedding day. I think I may feel a little odd receiving champagne flutes as a bridesmaid gift. I would prefer the mirror if I were a bridesmaid.

I would use the mirror more. Like most women, I have a cheapie purse mirror now, but i certainly wouldn’t mind upgrading it!

I vote the mirror mainly because a pair of champagne flutes seems like a gift for a couple not for a bridesmaid! Most people get champagne flutes at their weddings so if they’re already married they probably have them and if they’re not, that’ll surely be something they get at their wedding!

Yea, now I think of it I guess flutes are more of a “couple” gift – I just know my girls love their bubbles! Haha…
@lila2012: I saw the candle too and thought about that! Hmmm….

I voted for the mirror. I personally would get more use out of that but you know your girls better than we do. 🙂

if they love bubbles I’d do the champange flutes just not those ones… they seem too couply- get them ones that are more “fun and funky”

I’d say the mirror for sure. You could always throw in a bottle of fun champagne. The flutes definitely seem like more of a couple gift. Tie a silly straw around the bottle and they won’t even need a glass. 😉

Why not buy them each something different that suits their personality?

I like the idea of doing the mirror and a bottle of champagne… that could definitely work. I’ve also seen fun champagne flutes where you can get their names engraved or decorated on… maybe that’s something to consider – and definitely less “coupley”.
You ladies are awesome!
