I think a swell water bottle is a great idea! Since they have so many different patterns, you can choose different ones for each bridesmaid, depending on their individual tastes.

Things Remebered has nice compact mirrors which you could have personalized/engraved.

Seconded! A swell water bottle would be much more useful than another robe to feel guilty getting rid of

I think the Swell water bottle is a fantastic addition to your gift!  All of those seem like things the girls will use often, and could potentially have forever, sure they will be appreciateive!

Great idea on the drink bottle, personally I think glass bottles are better! Like those Life Factory ones.

I’m in the same boat – I don’t want anything that says ‘bridesmaid’ on it, even though I’m getting the hangers and robes (which doesn’t say bridesmaid, etc) for photos, they’re not the gifts. I am getting the shoes but I might also get a small handbag or clutch by her favourite designer – in a neutral colour so she could use it on the day too.

Other ideas are perfume, pretty candles, nice bottle of wine, cute pjs….

I’m “borrowing” this swell bottle idea for myself! Wondering what size would be best? 25oz seems really large/heavy to tote around, but I want to make sure they have something they can use day of and any day after :). Figure the 9oz likely too small, so torn between 17 and 25

I have the 17 and it’s perfect. It’s kind of heavy when full, so I imagine the 25 would be too heavy/annoying for me to lug back and forth to work daily

libellules :  17oz! Here’s a size chart that might help. The 9oz is just silly….

I drink a lot of water during the day, so I’d say 25oz. But I see what everyone’s saying about lugging around more weight.

The water bottles are a nifty idea.

I appreciate you gifting them stuff that has zero to do with your wedding.

mrscsoontobee :  Thank you so much! Your googling skills are better than mine :). I was looking for images for scale, but had mostly just found comparisons of them next to each other. Love that the large one holds a wine bottle ;). Id considered the 9 ounce because it would be easier to carry on THE DAY, and is purse friendly? But realistically I know most of my ladies are big water drinkers, and my mother actually carries multiple plastic bottles in her purse.
