If I was your bridesmaid, I would appreciate anything you gave me because you are my friend and I love you. I wouldn’t buy most of these items for myself, but it sounds like most girls would like these gifts.

I don’t wear earrings, so that’s the only thing I personally wouldn’t like. I really like the gifts overall though, and I know I’m in the minority with not having pierced ears.

That’s a lovely gift!! Personally I think you could drop the ring/necklace, only because I don’t wear much jewellery so unlikely to wear them again…but that’s just me being a fussy moo. You know your girls. Putting all this together is soo thoughtful!!!

I would like everything except possibly the perfumes. Only because smells are hard to know if individual people like them. I personally hate any perfume that has musk in it.

Sounds great, but I am picky about perfumes.

I might like the necklace and the studs but I wouldn’t like/care about anything else on that list.  However a) I’m not a girly girl and b) you’ve put so much more into this gift than is truly necessary that it shouldn’t matter if a few things are misses. 
Personally I’d prefer nothing at all to do with makeup – that’s too personal for me unless you already knew what I liked.  That includes the makeup case as it’s highly unlikely to be to my taste.

Things I’d appreciate as a non girly girl: tasty treats/snacks, a book I’m interested in, fun necklace, decorative item that matches what I already have (for example an old random book, black picture frames), a good photo of me and the bride (now or in the past), a gift certificate for a restaurant or amazon. (and I would not expect all or many of these – one thing is enough of a thank you, IMO)

What I’ve actually received as a bridesmaid: a purple satin purse to match my dress… sigh.  I actually forgot I owned it until I was digging through that dress bag 8 years later. 

What I gave: the dress and crinoline, 2 nights at our venue to cut costs (travelling across country)
