I have seven bridesmaids and my budget is 50 dollars a girl. My original plan was to get them personalized tumblers and fill them with things I thought each girl would love. So far I’ve spent ten dollars for each tumbler. I am also paying for their make-up to be done the day of (I know that it doesn’t really count as a gift, but is worth noting). I’d like to hear what you think about the rest.
- ($10) Personalized nail polish. Each girl would get a shade of pink that I think matches their personality (the dresses are pink) https://www.prettypleasenailpolish.com/colors
- ($3) Mini liqour bottle (wine for wine lovers, jack for jack lovers etc)
- I’m setting up a mimosa/drink bar for when we get dressed and eat lunch together
- Filling the tumbler with pink candy
What else should I add? I thought about adding jewelry, but felt “meh” about it.

futuremrsdeemac: Mints or gum, lip gloss or chap stick, the little travel body sprays from victorias secret is always awesome or even the little hand lotions from bath and body works! Little things like that I personally love because I use them all the time and they could come in handy during the wedding.

For the price of the nail polish, I would go with a more established brand, like Essie, OPI, or something else. Also, when are they getting these gifts? If they are getting them the night before the wedding at the rehearsal, I wouldnt expect they would have time to do their nails between then and the wedding. So rather than go with a pink to match the dresses, I would just generally pick a color that matches their personality/what they like instead.
I wouldn’t personally consider the food and drink you are offering them as they get ready for the wedding as part of the gift, but thats not really the point. If you are already offering a mimosa bar, I would nix the bottle of alcohol. It’s overkill.
I’d fill the rest with a nice lipgloss, pair of fun earrings (not to wear at the wedding), some nice hand lotion or gift card for their favorite coffee shop.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I will complete the gifts with nail polish, lip gloss, travel sized beauty products and a gift card.
