So i never get on here much and i usually keep to myself about planning and what not someones opinion wont change what i have visioned in my head. But i am STUMPED! i have no idea what to get my bridesmaids for their wedding present/favor. I’ve beaten my head against the wall multiple times and i just cannot think of anything that stands out like i imagined it would. Any help would be great!

Shop for them like it is their birthday. If you have a bridesmaid who loves movies, a coffee table book about Hollywood and a gift card to the cinema would be a great gift. For a friend who loves to cook, buy that fancy Wusthof knife she has been drooling over. Fashionista? A silk scarf and some designer perfume. It doesn’t have to be a wedding-related gift (and really it shouldn’t be).

Imhis1andonly: I like the idea of shopping for them like it is their birthday. If they each have a distinctive hobby, get them something related to that. DO NOT get them something FOR the wedding – that is NOT a gift.
I got my bridesmaids:
-Coach clutches (I found them for $20 each around Christmas time! I think on black friday)
-Diamond Candles (The “True Love” scent – kind of cute – and I know they like candles)
-Tote Bags (To put all this in!)
I am thinking of maybe getting them some other little items – champagne for the day of, nail polish, makeup, maybe beach towels…. I’m not sure yet.
The one thing for the wedding: “Tumblers” to use the day of – but they can also use them afterwards. Each has a design of the girls initial/a dress in the color of the wedding.
For my Maid/Matron of Honor: I got her the tote bag, tumbler and Tiffany earrings for $175 (she planned my shower, bachelorette, etc.)
We are also paying for hair/makeup for all the girls.

I got my bridesmaids nice robes to wear while we get ready. Each one is different and has patterns/colors that match their personalities. I knew all of their favorite colors already so it was easy for me to pick! It’ll look great in pictures and they are nice robes to have around the house for after. It’s a win win! I’m also making them each a care package that has a little shot of their favorite booze, a thank you letter, etc. I got my co-MOH a couple of those Ani & Alex Bangles that have stones matching a chakra that represents where they are in life and what energy matches their needs. I would have gotten each of them that but I have 9 so bangles+robes would have been too $$$$! We’re doing Mani/Pedis and Hair/Makeup that weekend for them too!

thanks guys for the comments. I’ll have to think long and hard about this. I’m sure I’ll think of something. Some of the forums inread seem like they spend lots of $$ on the gifts.
