Hi ladies! I’m hoping you can help me out with some ideas for Bridesmaids gifts. I’m struggling particularly because of the age range of my bridesmaids. They are Maid/Matron of Honor: 29, BMs: 19, 23, 19, 16. Any ideas? I love all of the personalized wine glasses, and things like that but I feel like it’s really inappropriate to gift that to my cousin who’s only 16. The two 19 BMs are both in college, and neither they nor their parents would think twice about it (don’t judge please 🙂 ). Any ideas for BMs gifts that can spand such a wide age range. I want to get them something they will like and enjoy. And no offense to anyone who is doing this, I don’t really like the idea of giving them jewelry to wear at the wedding. Suggestions?

Can you do something personalized for each one? I have two girls. One I took to the Boston Opera House for a show and bought some of her textbooks for this semester (she is a student)for the other I bought her a pair of shoes that she loved but didn’t buy for herself when we went to New York City last year.

For mine, i’m doing a ‘gift bag’ for everyone. There’s gonna be things in common- cute flip flops, a nice compact mirror, a monogramed water bottle, a pair of sunglasses, a robe and hair wrap towel, nail polish and probably some candy or mints or gum or something. Then for each of my girls I’m going to add things i pick out for them specifically. Like my Maid/Matron of Honor is getting a straightner and curling iron she’s been eyeing, one girl is getting custom lipstick, another is getting a bunch of BluRays, and the other is getting a lense for her camera. They’re all about the same price, and it’s something they all want.
I’m also getting them all the jewelry and shoes I want them to wear, and a picture frame that my mom and I are making. Two pictures in each frame, one from sometime in my friendship with my girls, and then one to be added from the wedding.
I have guys in my bridal party, and I’m going to be doing similar. Each guy is getting a wallet, sunglasses, a water bottle and and the mints. They’re also getting ties, cuff links and a pocket watch from me.
I personally like the idea of giving them each different big things, while keeping them kind of the same. My girls are all so different that I know they wouldn’t enjoy the same thing.
