Ask yourself, will your friends like what you’ve got? If yes. Then you’re good. Seriously. I’m assuming they are some of your very best friends. They don’t want you stressing this much about their gifts.
I’m getting mine each a gift card to her favourite store (one’s getting a sports store, another’s getting lululemon, 2 are getting anthropologie, I have no idea where to get the Jr Bridesmaid or Best Man a card to, she doesn’t live here). Then they’re each getting a personalized tote (just their first initial) and personalized make up bags. (They all travel a lot.) Done. The rest of the stuff will be for the wedding – day of jewellery, the plaid shirts for getting ready, a pashmina and a brooch for the outdoor photos.
Really, don’t stress. You know your friends better than any of us.
And if I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man, I’d love a new lulu hoodie. 🙂

thanks 🙂 It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the little details. I never thought I’d be one of those girls to hyperventilate over the small stuff and here i am lol.
after all my perseverating, three of my bridesmaids got in touch with me and asked if maybe we’d wear floral robes for pictures, LOL. i was like, PROBLEM SOLVED. PHEW. I figured they’d want lulu hoodies for sure, but on further consideration, i think each of them has at least a couple. thanks for your kind note 🙂
thanks 🙂 i know you’re right, but yeah, see above, a little too easy to get wrapped up in the details, without seeing the forrest. deep breathing is my new friend.

Oh my gosh, no. I’m sorry but it makes me so angry when Bees get on this “if it has even the slightest thing to do with your wedding, then it isn’t a real gift” crap. I’ve received gifts as a Bridesmaid or Best Man that were to be worn in the wedding and in no way did I find that rude, tacky, inconsiderate, or anything else negative. I was grateful just to be a part of their special day, geez!! OP I think you’ve gone out of your way trying to be thoughtful and considerate and I would be thrilled with any of those gifts!
