I was planning on gifting my girls a $75 credit to get their hair or makeup done on the day of the wedding, I’m not requiring it to be done, but they all expressed that they would like to get it done if the price was right, but I feel bad since they are spending so much on airfare, dresses, hotel, rental cars etc… I thought it might be nice to offer them a little something to get done on the day of and either keep their $75 they were planning on paying for one service or “splurge” and get both to lighten their financial load a little… And then I wanted to get them a little something to keep for after the wedding and was thinking something like this:
Do you think that a custom necklace (each one would have their birthstone and first initial) plus getting their hair or makeup done for free on the day of the wedding would be a good (sufficient) gift?

I would be very happy with that gift as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, the necklace is so cute!

Paying for their hair for you wedding isnt really a gift to them. So I would only consider the necklace as a gift. If they all like this type of jewelry then thats nice, i might add something small it depending on how much the necklace costs

hmm, I WOULD consider getting my hair done by the bride a gift, and am wondering if any one else feels like me or pp? I think a necklace is enough:)

@FMCollado: yes they are! I just searched for “bridesmaid gift sets necklace”, I don’t want to get in trouble for promoting anything, but I love those necklaces!
@Angelz_love: I agree with you, it would be one thing if they didn’t want to get their hair and makeup done and I pushed it on them and paid for it, but since they all showed interest in getting it done (and were really excited about it) I feel like it is considered a gift… but maybe I’m wrong? Which is also why I thought getting a necklace too would be a good route. 🙂

I think that is definitely enough!
The necklace alone would suffice, and since they want to have hair/make-up done, that’s a very nice touch. It would be especially nice if the hair/make-up place also offered massage or something spa-like, so in case one of them changes their mind or something it could be used as a spa certificate.

That sounds like the perfect bridesmaid gift! Something practical yet fun that saves them money (hair or makeup) and something pretty that will remind them of that special day (the necklace). That is probably one of the best bridesmaids gift ideas I have seen yet!

I agree with the previous poster that the hair/makeup isn’t really a gift to them, but the necklace alone is probably enough.
But I would only say that is true if you think they all would like that necklace aside from your wedding, and that it isn’t something that you mandate for use at the wedding.

@Angelz_love: I agree with you, and I know of others who have paid for hair and makeup as the gift. The necklace PLUS the money towards hair and makeup is going above and beyond. I only wish that I could afford to do the same for my girls!

I think it’s a great idea! I love the necklaces but I don’t think one of my girls would wear it. I’m having trouble coming up with an idea for them.
