That sounds great to me 🙂 Although most of that stuff is for the wedding so definitely make sure you have something not for the wedding in there too!

Sounds good to me but the jewelry for the wedding….is it stuff they would wear again? If not, I dont consider that a “gift” for them since it just completes their outfits. I’m getting my BMs jewelry for the wedding but it’s not a part of their gift. The rest of the items all sound cute so I dont see how they wouldn’t like it.

@tcgstar:  they will probably love it. For me personally I prefer a gift card vs someone picking out things for me bc I am picky and my friends are not into fashion. I would never wear clutches or jewelry that they pick out so a gift card is perfect.

I think you’ll be fine. But I might buy something small that is more personal rather than some of the less personal things you’ve got listed.

I don’t count the jewelry and solemates if they are going to be wearing those on wedding day.

Beyond that, it’s hard without knowing your girls. Do they drink wine? If so, then I think wine is a great gift idea, just be sure to get different bottles based on your girl’s preferences (I would love to get wine)! Same with scented candles. Personally I have so much lotion people have given me over the years I don’t think I’ll need any more until I have grandkids. I’m not sure how I feel about a picture from the wedding. I happen to like that idea and have pictures from a couple of the weddings I have been in over the years up in my house. But other people maybe not see it that way. And I’m kinda meh about the hangers. I mean I don’t ever pay attention to the hangers in my closet so I’m not to sure how excited I would be to have a fancy hanger. Nobody would ever see it. But, honestly, I think the most important thing is a really nice thank you note, written from the bottom of the heart. Which is sounds like you’re already planning to do.

I don’t see a problem with the gift…that amount sounds good as well.  If you want to alter it by personalizing a few of the items a little  more to each Bridesmaid or Best Man, that would be a nice idea. 

I’ve been grappling with this subject myself over the past week or two…especially the notion that wedding day jewelry doesn’t count as a gift.  I understand the argument…it’s just that I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a good friend’s wedding a few years ago and absolutely love the necklace she got for us, and most certainly considered that to be a gift.  I don’t wear it all the time (I’m not big into jewelry), but I really did appreciate it.  I guess it just depends on the situation.
