jorjabee :  I’m doing a “chill before the thrill” kit.  Bath bomb, candle, artisan soap, all in matching scents, and minis that make a cocktail. They are also getting a robe for gettign ready that day and all the jewelery they need.  Girly and practical.

I have not done my thank you gifts, however I did make “bridesmaid boxes” to ask my bridesmaids to be in the wedding party. I included a small bottle of pink bubbly, a face mask for each of them based on their skin care needs, a set of two mini liquid lipsticks, a small pack of scented bath salts, a bar of Godiva chocolate and a little gold bracelet that had a knot tied in it (“I can’t tie the knot without you!”).

To go with your theme, maybe some skin care products? a face mask or perhaps some bubble bath or bath bombs?

My bridesmaid gifts include a huge canvas bag with a zipper (Christmas Tree Shop), a metal water Bottle (Paper Store) a throw blanket (Paper Store), a bath bomb (Christmas Tree shop), tea towels (Christmas Tree Shop) a candle (yankee candle) and an air freshener spray (yankee candle).  I’m also paying for their hair and makeup if they want it done (Not a requirement and some still decided to do their own)

All ladies are getting a large beach tote (as the bag)

earrings for the wedding (simple enough to wear again)

outfit for getting ready (not a real qift)

im paying for hair

a cute cannvas makeup bag that says “little bag of tricks” on it filled with sheet masks

then i decided to gift them things theyll each use:

Maid/Matron of Honor – she loves to travel so shes getting a travel journal, a book of travel lists (shes a huge list maker), and personalized luggage tag and passport set (i also got her a necklace from pandora as her Maid/Matron of Honor gift)

Bridesmaid #1 – a mongrammed yeti cup and a few bags of gourmet coffee (she LOVES all things coffee)

Married with young kids? Wine, a bath bomb, a candle and a sheet mask or Kindle gift card. (A coupon for you to babysit during mommy bath time would be nice as well. : ) )
