Hi Bees! All of my bridesmaids are married, in their 30s, with a few young kids. They’ve all told me not to get them accessories or fancy things because they don’t think they’ll use them or they already have enough, but I really want to give them an assortment of thank-you gifts. I’m thinking about giving them practical but luxurious items that married women/moms might treat themselves with in their regular lives. Here are my ideas so far:
1. Bombas socks (they have a light compression and they’re awesome)
2. Microfiber face cloths
3. Diamond Dazzle stik
What other items can you think of that might go into this type of bridesmaid care package?

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)
