Since I don’t want to get opinions from my actual bridesmaids, I figured this is the best place to go! I have two different gifts packages in mind for my bridesmaids. Which one would you prefer?
Bag and matching makeup case from etsy
Makeup case packed with “every day essentials”
- nail file
- mini tape measure
- compact mirror
- hand lotion
PJ’s and a matching robe
- Ped-egg (they really work!!)
- 2 OPI nail polishes
- Nail tools (file, cutical pusher, etc)
I have already purchased a small silver jewelry box in the shape of each girl’s initial and will be making their earrings for the wedding.
So hive, what would you prefer???

I love the bag! I say go for it.
The robe idea is nice, but I’m the type of person that never uses a robe.

I love the bag, too! So fun.

Both of these are very thoughtful ideas for gifts, so I really do think that whichever one you choose, they will be happy with! I voted for the make-up bag and stuff because I happen to be obsessed with little bags and carriers 🙂

I would be super happy to get either of those two gifts! However, I LOVE PJs and pedicures, so I chose the second option.

i think that both options are great, but i would definitely prefer the pj, robe & pedicure set. i think that would be a great way to decompress after the wedding!

I like the PJs and robe idea. Personally I have tons of makeup bags from Clinque giveaway time and random Christmas presents and stocking stuffers. I would appreciate the second gift a lot more.

The 2nd b/c I have all that stuff in the 1st already… the 1st sets stuff would just be added to my collection or tossed.

I chose the first, but also love the second idea. You know your maids best!
However, if the pj’s/robe say “bridesmaid” then I vote no! because they won’t use them afterwards.

i think both are great. if you’re getting dressed together the robe might be a nice touch.

I think they are all great as well, but I love PJs, robes and who can’t use a pedi-egg? 🙂

You know your girls best. Are they girlie girls? Do they wear make-up and get their nails done. I only ask because mine would look at me like I was from outer space if I got them nail files, tweezers and mirrors. Then again, I had a hard time getting them to dry and brush their hair for the wedding
I asked if anyone wanted to get their make-up or hair done for the wedding and they laughed at me!

If you do the PJ’s and robe you can get really cute matching “getting ready” photos of all the girls wearing their PJ’s and robes. We did that for mine and it was adorable! They were a big hit and the girls are all using the robes a year later.

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
I say option 2, only because I personally already HAVE all the items you listed to go with #1, as well as a TON of makeup bags!

My vote is for #2. I think it’s more personal and pampering.
