I have 9 months to go until my wedding but I’ve already collected my bridesmaids gifts and I thought I’d share.
I’m breaking the gifts up into two boxes (1 box with things to use during the wedding and 1 box of things to use after the weding) and on the outside of the box, these notes will be attached:
I posted this before, but for their survival kits I put together this:
(yes that’s a drawing I did of me! ha!)
I also paid for their bridesmaid dresses. The bridesmaids are in charge of getting their hair/makeup done if wanted and their shoes/jewelry for the wedding day.
share your gift ideas!

@jbarker09: Thanks for posting the survival kit, I’ve been looking to do something similar for my girls, but couldn’t really come up with a good list. Since my BMs are traveling from CA to NC to get to my wedding, I’m giving them small items.
I’ve made each girl a unique pair of earrings inside a macaron coin purse I sewed using this pattern. I’m giving each one a Coach wristlet with gift cards from Sephora and VS. My BMs are wearing black dresses that they already owned, and I’m not requiring them to get hair or make-up done. They are also staying with me for the wedding, so that they don’t have to pay for hotels since they’re already paying for their flights.

@cre2013: I wanted to get them robes, but I have already gone over my budget. I think I might search after xmas day sales 🙂

@jbarker09: If you’re still looking for robes, La Vie en Rose has satin ones on sale for 11.99 right now, marked down from 40. I got mine yesterday.
I like the idea of collecting things throughout the process, that’s what I’ve already started to do. I think I’m going to contribute to each of their dresses and pay for their hair. I also want to give them a “bridesmaid swag” bag that will have in it:
– satin robe for getting ready
– flip flops for getting ready/ dancing later in the night.
-some nice pearl earrings they can wear the day of
– a hangover kit for the next morning
-maybe a nice hair comb they can all wear in their hair, if I can find cheap ones
– a travel wine mug, so we can sip wine as we get ready with no spills… plus I think they’re hilarious and really neat
-general nice fun girly things, e.g bath stuff, nail polish etc.
It will likley add up, but I want to spoil my girls, plus I’m only having 3
Can’t wait to to give them their gifts 🙂
