To all the Bridesmaids (or just put yourself in a BM’s position):
Is a Bridesmaid or Best Man survival kit really a good gift?? I’ve seen a lot of DIY survival kits and I think it’s a really cute idea! But I’m not sure if BM’s would really like that? I’m actually going to put together a box together of that sort of stuff & some other things (nail stuff, compact mirror, DIY jewelry I made, and whatever other small things I can find). Personally, I wouldn’t mind a gift like that but I really can’t figure out if my BM’s would..
I’m still going to do it, but just wondering! 🙂

Most bridesmaids prefer something that is not wedding related that fits their interests and personalities.

yeah.. thats what I was thinking which is why I’m adding other stuff in there.

I’m giving them all clutches with “day of” stuff in them (nail file, Kiehl’s lip balm, lotion, sanitizer, etc) but each clutch is different and not “wedding”-y so they can use them a lot. I tried to match each clutch fabric to each girl’s style. They’re also each getting those hangers with their names bent into them from Etsy and I’m paying for their mani/pedi the day before the wedding. I’m also subsidizing the cost of their hair/make up but they don’t know that… I’m debating just paying for the whole shebang…. Decisions decisions.

Yeah I think it wouldn’t be the best gift. I think they would prefer something more personal and something that lasts longer than just the wedding day.

My mother did this as a small gift to my BMs and me for the day of the Bridal Shower to be used for the day of the wedding….I am giving them a necklace and a coach wristlet (non-wedding items) during the Rehearsal Dinner.
In a canvas bag she added the following:
small mirror, Colgate Wisps, mouthwash, hand santizer, breath mints, lotions, body spary (all on clearnace @ Bath & Bodyworks, lip gloss, flip flips
And…..a box of 4 fabulous local made (super huge!) truffles (Champagne, Razberry, Coffee, and Chocolate).
