I’m starting to consider what gifts I’ll be getting my 5 ‘maids. I want the gifts to be special, and I’m against getting them a gift to “use” for the wedding day. As of right now, I’m considering some nice Tiffany crystal keepsake bowls and one other small gift. But, this isn’t set in stone and I’d like to have some other ideas to work with! My budget is ~$100 to $150 per person.

@nocake: keepsake bowls sound interesting! What do they look like?

@nocake: Here’s a link to a thread of mine (lots of pics!); you could easily change the earring packs to a single piece of real, fine jewellery, as well as still being able to spoil them with other goodies if you’re able!

@ksus07: Thanks! That’s thoughtful and helpful. Of course, a handwritten note is the best thing to receive
I was thinking of the crystal bowl to have to just keep on display or use it as a catch-all for lip gloss, keys, pins, etc.:
But now I’m considering a vase for one of my bridesmaids in particular because she loves to style her apartment, and she loves fresh flowers, but would never buy something like this herself:
ETA the links weren’t working so I posted pics

@nocake: Yes, the best thing to receive… but the hardest thing to write! There’s just so much I want to put in but I don’t want them to die of boredom before we have to walk down the aisle haha

@nocake: Could you make an individualized photo book of the memories you have shared with each bridesmaid? You could incorporate the letter you would have written to them amidst the pages.

I really like your crystal bowl idea! I would definitely use and appreciate it if I were to receive one.
I bought my bridesmaids Victoria Secret yoga pants. They LOVED them. Every single one of them says they wear them on a weekly (or daily) basis. Obviously, you would need to know their size, though. I also got them a Dogeared necklace, which they ended up wearing it during the wedding even though that wasn’t my intention.
Hope this helps!
