- Wedding: July 2011
I thought I’d share what I did with other bees who are struggling with trying to find Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts that weren’t monogrammed mirrors, robes, etc. I wish I had pictures to share because they were such a labor of love, but the week before was just too hectic 🙁
My girls all received a letter thanking them for their amazing friendship and being a part of the wedding. Then small gifts that corresponded with specific thanks:
1) Thank you for being a friend to me always and a bridesmaid as I marry the love of my life
Gift: Jewely to wear the day of the wedding
2) Thank you for all the girl talk
Gift: ‘Porn for Women’ book (HILARIOUS)
3) Thank you for all the late nights…
Gift: Bottle of Blend X, a wine from our reception venue that was a winery
4) That occassionally turned into mornings
Gift: Custom coffee mug with their names on one side and the phrase ‘I’m out of bed and dressed. What more do you want?’ on the other
5) And lastly, thank you for always cheering me on.
Gift: Panties with their favorite MLB team from Victoria’s Secret PINK MLB collection
The items were almost all bought on sale (Victoria’s Secret 5/$25 panties, the coffee mugs 50% off at personalizationmall.com, a special on the wine if you bought a case, etc.) so the total cost per girl was probably between $40-$50.
It’s really just a collection of small gifts, but I hope the girls appreciated it and will find use out of all of them and that maybe this will give some other bees inspiration when gift-hunting as well!
