it’s all a little too monogrammed.

I think it really depends on your girls. I know that I personally wouldn’t use or want a sleeping mask, bridal tank or bath salts, but I also know many people who love them. I suggest one really nice personalized gift rather than many small ones.

Well, you know your BMs best, so give them what you think they’ll use, even if that means giving them each something a little different. I don’t know about your BMs, but mine are paying for their dresses, so I’m offering to help them a little with cost instead of gifts… I think it’s more practical than stuff they might never use.

These questions are always hard because of individual tastes and you know your BM’s

Personally, for me, I have enough totes. The tank would be only worn once and be a waste and if I bought something for the rehearsal I would be annoyed I didnt know about the tank much earlier.

The jewerly is great, if you think its their style and/or plan to have them wear it in the wedding.

I would never use bath salts, I already own 5 robes (3 silk), a nice matching wine glass sets for china as well as everyday use and I never do my nails… again this is me so you need to know your BM’s so our opinions dont really matter

If you think they would like these, then perfect! I would strive to match their needs, taste and personality.

If you want them to use their gifts again I would stay away from doing their names in rhinestones on the bags. Not many women carry a bag with their name on it- creepy guys then know your name.

The same with wineglasses. A  set of 4 wineglasses is not very expensive and is something they can use rather than one painted or etched glass that doesn’t match anything else they own.

I would add the robes. It’s always fun to have the same robes to wear getting ready the day of the wedding.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man last year and we got rhinestone tanks at the bachelorette party to wear to dinner and then we changed into dresses after dinner. I thought that was a good way of the bride splitting up our gifts. We got pretty necklaces at the rehearsal dinner then.

I agree with the other posts who said they have enough of this kind of stuff. I also think quality is better than quantity.. what about getting your girls gift cards for a massage at a local spa? That’s what I plan on getting my bridal party so they can relax after helping with my wedding! I think the tank, robe and jewelry are good ideas but the other stuff just seems like unnecessary extras.
