    I got mine a monogrammed robe from Lands End and they loved it.  I also got one for myself which I use each morning!

    I’m the solo bathrobe vote so far. My first inclination was a Coach wristlet, since it’s a quality, non-wedding related item that’s incredibly awesome (and generous!). But then I thought of all the wristlets I own, and they’ve all been sitting in the closet for a really long time. I love them, but I hardly ever use them.

    If your friends are the type to have a reason to carry one (parties?), I would definitely say go with that, though!

    I voted for Coach wristlet. I love mine, have multiple ones and use them frequently. Plus a robe is a fairly common gift that people are very likely to get over their life time from family members and I just know that I personally would be very excited to get a wristlet, whereas I already have 4 robes at home that I’ve gotten on different holidays as gifts.

    Wristlets are cute but not the most practical – I wouldn’t use one. But, it depends on your BMs, maybe they are into wristlets, in which case they’d be a great gift.

    I gave my girls monogrammed robes that I purchased from an Etsy seller. They loved them and it meant we got to take fun photos like this one!:

    ETA: My Bridesman did NOT receive a robe as a gift – he borrowed my mum’s bathrobe for this photo!

    I would not use either of these things. I’d prefer if the bride didn’t get everyone the same thing, but got us presents with our own interests/needs in mind. Or paid for hair/makeup, etc.

    I agree with PP definitely depends on your bridesmaids. I personally would never use a wristlet so although nice it would be a useless gift for me. So I would prefer bathrobes. HOwever, I really like crayfish’s idea of getting individual presents.

    I agree … i have quite a few wristlets sitting in the back of my closet.  I’d use the bathrobe everyday 😀

    I voted for the wristlet.  I never wear bathrobes, so it would most likely hang in my closet until I decided to give it to Goodwill.

    I voted for the bathrobe for its fluffy comfy awesomeness.

    @hergreenapples: love that picture!

    I vote for bathrobe too – I would use a bathrobe way more than a wristlet. I wear a bathrobe every morning when I get out of bed and after I dry off from the shower. Sometimes I might end up lounging around in it for a while!

    I voted wristlet, I use the one’s I have to carry my IPod to work and my camera and then I have one for tampons. I am short and always feel so swamped in most robes.

    I say robe.  Personally, I would buy myself a wristlet, but I would not buy myself a monogramed robe, so I think that makes it a good gift.

    I’ve received a coach wristlet as a Bridesmaid or Best Man gift and sadly, I’ve never used it. That’s why I voted for the robe.
