    I love those earrings!  However, are you requiring your BMs to wear the all of the jewerly?  If you are, then I don’t think you can count it as a gift.  Jewelry is always a good idea, but maybe you could personalize it a little more instead of getting them all matching stuff. 

    I’m also usually not a fan of things that say “bridesmaid,” but because it’s underwear and almost no one will see it (so they can definitely wear it again), I think it’d be ok.  It’d be fun to have a little something wedding related like that.

    I like the robe and the personalized tote (as long as neither say “bridesmaid”).

    I think getting each a wine glass and some wine (mug and candy for the FG) is aslo a good idea.  I’m a little iffy on those specific glasses.  I personally wouldn’t want anything with my face (or any face for that matter) on it.  I like the idea personalized glasses, but maybe something like this where it has just their names.

    Overall though, I think you are being very generous and don’t need to add anything more!  Even if you decide to keep the wedding-related jewelry, the wine, glass, robe, and underwear should be enough. =)

    @aheavel:  Ok good deal!  Also, the more I think about it, the more I want to steal your idea of the bm underwear.  It didn’t really come across in my frist post, but I think it’s a pretty cute and fun idea.

    i’d prefer one bigger item than a bunch of little ones, personally.

    IF this stuff is to be worn on the day of the wedding then to me it doesnt count as a gift. I think the gift should be something unrelated to the wedding day experience.

    Honestly, I think you totally over doing it on the gifts! I’m not sure if these sort of things vary from state to state but every wedding that I have been in all that I have gotten is the jewelry to wear for the wedding. One time I got some lotions / body sprays / etc. plus the jewelry. I plan on buying my BM’s their jewelry (necklace, bracelet, earrings) and possibly a clutch but I have not fully decided yet.
