for Not Wedding Related – you can find out what their fave magazine is and buy the current months issue, with a card “enjoy these for a year!” (you can buy the subscription for pretty cheap these days)

Well, I got my girls something embroidered. I went to Wet Seal & got them each a White Zip up hoodie for $8.00 a piece, then went to the embroidery shop & had her put the girls names on the back of the hoodie at the bottom 🙂 I love it! & since my wedding is kind of southern, I got them mason jars with their name’s monogrammed on it in vinyl! I hope they like it!!

Think about their individual hobbies and interests. The gifts don’t  have to match or be identical. Also, keep in mind that what one woman finds useful, another may have no use for at all.

A robe would be a nice gift they could use later.

But do you think that your BMs would use the robes? While it’s nice and I personally love mine I know none of my BMs would use one.

I’ve heard a great idea of a cookbook and a cute apron and maybe some useful cooking utensils.

 

I’m a firm believer in getting bridesmaids gifts that are gifts to THEM, and not the wedding.  I trust my girls to wear nice jewelry on the day.

I also wanted to get something inexpensive and useful. I thought about what my bridesmaids had in common and only thing I could come up with is that they all do yoga. So I used this Etsy seller and bought 5 silkscreened shirts. They are lovely and well crafted. The seller is helpful and friendly. And if you buy a handful, you might be able to negotiate a discount.

I added some handmade stationery and Japanese chocolates (to tie in to the wedding theme) and topped out at around $35-40 per person.

I know you don’t like monogrammed, but  I got all my girls monogrammed spa robes. Something they can use on the big day and after.
