That sounds like plenty to me. I think as long as you include a heartfelt note, they will know how much you appreciate them.

I think your gifts definitely sound sufficient.  The only thing I would say is do you think they will actually wear the rob, necklace, earrings and belts outside of the wedding?  I know everyone has different thoughts about what to give for gifts, but I personally don’t like getting gifts that I know I’ll never use (I guess I am a picky gift recipient) b/c it’s a waste of space to me and I honestly will just throw it out.  So make sure you think your BM’s would actually use these gifts after the wedding and it’s not just something they’re wearing for one day, b/c then it’s not really a gift to them.

My BM’s are also putting out quite a bit of money (traveling from out of state and a relatively expensive Bridesmaid or Best Man dress) so I am paying for either hair or makeup (like you), but for gifts I am getting them individual presents based on their personal style and what I know they will like.

I think they’re nice gifts, but I think you should forego the $65 robe and get them something more personal that isn’t wedding-related.  Things that are actually for your wedding shouldn’t be considered ‘gifts’ even though you’re paying for them, you know?

That does seem sufficient! I’d be very blessed by that gift ๐Ÿ™‚

I would actually love a robe, and I don’t think that the gifts need to be wedding or non-wedding related. I think they should be what you want to give and what you find appropriate.  Some people think jewelry is a bad idea because people won’t wear it after the reception. But, to be honest, every person has different tastes, so no matter what you get, I’m sure there will be at least one person that doesn’t like it because that is just what happens. I think that what you got was great and appropriate. That being said, search around and see if you can find some robes that aren’t so expensive. I’ve seen plenty! I think it is easier to swallow that people won’t reuse your gifts if you didn’t spend a fortune.  I would be happy if someone just paid for my hair andmakeup and wrote me a heartfelt note. Good luck!!

I am going to try and buy my Bridesmaid or Best Man something personal ex my Maid/Matron of Honor loves astrology and believes in karma so I found the perfect book for her plus I am going to add a few more thing.

Ohh that robe is pretty! I would wear it again and again, so you wont have to worry about it feeling “wedding related”.

I’m getting each of my girls a 3 month subscription to Birchbox-I thought it’d be a fun gift for them to look forward to and would be something they’d like! I hate getting Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts like a special hair comb, etc. that’ll I’ll never use again. I’m not sure what else I’m getting them. How much do people typically pay total for gifts? I’m also paying for their hair to be done

@hopefloats:  I agree!  That robe is gorgeous!  It isn’t the typical wedding robe that is white and has “bridesmaid” embroidered on it.  I would certainly use that for lounging around the house =)

Can you buy me one?  Lol.
