Okay so I need some advice. When I first got engaged I bought totebags with my birdesmaids initials on them for part of their gift. I am still somewhat happy with this, but its too late to turn back now. So after reading a lot of posts on theknot about what to get my bm I came to the realization that getting them all the same thing and for the wedding is not really a gift for them. So I got each of them an individualized necklace from Lia Sophia (catalog jewlery). Very Happy with this idea! However now I feel I need something else for them. But I am stuck…I have spent 30$ on each so far and want to spend a little bit more. These girls have been there for me through thick and thin and I want to get them a nice gift. Also should I get something a little more for my 2 Maid/Matron of Honor. Thanks for listening. Sorry its long

haha this isn’t long just fyi 😉
I thought I’d chime in. So I have one Maid/Matron of Honor and two BMs which are my sister in law and my future sister in law. I got them each a straw tote from J Crew, I sewed them all Jewelry rolls (holy those were a huge pain), bought them each a custom made necklace from Etsy for about 30.00 and then as if that wasn’t enough (Probably aronund 50 by that point with the other little things i’ve picked up here and there that were negligable), the Coach factory is having an online sale so last week I bought them each a wristlet for another 30.00 or so. I am sure I have spent far more than I should have but I only have the 3 girls and they mean a lot to me. My problem is I still keep wanting to buy more! I need to cut myself off. I know none of those things are “personal” but hopefully that doesn’t make them any less enjoyable.
