What are some of your more unique bridesmaids gifts you’ve given or received?
I did some “bridesmaid survival” bags for my girls. (A mesh tote, button-up to wear for hair/makeup, stemless wine glass, lip scrub, shower melts..) I’m also making them a hanger with their initial hanging on it that could be a Christmas ornament or something later. I didn’t want anything to specifically say “bridesmaid” or the wedding date or anything. I know those items are still more wedding related so now I bought another small, peronal item for each girl too. I have one more to buy for and I’m stumped! (She’s hard to shop for and I don’t see her wearing jewelry or using anything too girly.. I don’t know if a coffee gift card is too cheesy? Or her fave liqeuor, but she’s pregnant and couldn’t drink until November so that seems weird.)
So any fun and unique ideas I can steal?! ($20 or less on this item.)

I had tanks made for all the girls that said like “the funny one” or “the shy one”. I also gave them each a monogrammed tumbler which a few of them have texted me pictures of them using! I also did the ornament thing. I had hangers monogrammed for them to hang their dresses on. I also gave them each a cosmetic bag and a hankie. I was going to give them each some makeup in the cosmetic bag that I thought they’d like based on what they normally wear but ran out of time. My bridesmaids’ gifts weren’t super creative although they did love them. Our groomsmen gifts were way more unique!

Instead of a coffe gift card, what about a personalized coffee mug/travel mug?

That sounds like a nice gift 🙂 I got the “No Ugly Crying ” hankies too.. almost forgot 🙂 I love the tumbler idea though.
This particular bridesmaid is the hardest to shop for.. she’s not overly girly and doesn’t wear makeup or jewelry really. And on top of that she hates receiving gifts lol.. she’s also in a huge declutter mode prepping for baby so I feel bad adding to any messes. So for her I definitely want the gift to be useful, not as sentimental.
I like that idea too 🙂 Maybe a tumbler or travel coffee cup.. both ideas would be used for coffee I’m betting haha.

Try to make the gift something that won’t clutter the house – something she can use (soap, candle, specialty coffees, teas), or something useful (towels, robe, mugs). If she’s got a baby on the way why not get her something that maybe would help her out – a robe, baby blankets, nursing pillow). I know she probably has or is having a baby shower – but most people get the fun cute stuff – like the tiny baby clothes / socks … But no one remembers the mom. Give her something that will make being a mom a bit nicer – even bath bombs would be a nice relaxing break.

If she’s in a declutter mode, perhaps you could get her some cute organizers, maybe even have them monogrammed. I know I love have little baskets around to help me organize everything.
