Skin care products is a good idea, if you know what your girls like (scents etc). The only reason I wouldn’t like it as a gift is because I’m allergic to scents/perfumes, phalates & parabens, so while it would be a nice thought it’s usually something I can’t use.

But you know your BMs best, so as long as that’s not an issue it’s a pretty good idea.

I would love the wristlet but not skin care products…maybe a lotion or little perfume or lipgloss to use for the wedding.

The wrap I wouldn’t want pictures in but would use it at home again.

I probably would rather have the spa wrap than the skin care and lotions; I would totally use the wrap at home after showering.

I wouldn’t want anyone but my dermo picking out my skin care stuff, but if you know that you’re BMs are really into it, they might really appreciate it.  I’ve gotten a couple of spa wraps as gifts over the years, but I never know where or why to wear them.  

I tried to get something keepsake.

I wouldn’t use the skin care most likely. I think most of us already have a regimen that we use. Plus, if they do start using it close to your wedding, they’ll likely all break out while their skin adjusts.

It really depends on the types of girls your BMs are…I’m not big into skin care and some people already have a tried-and-true product they use. PERSONALLY, I would get simpler things. Things that are less personal and specific. Picture frame, flip flops, candles, etc. I like the wristlet idea–especially if they like Coach. I hope I’m not putting you down. I don’t mean to say that your gifts are bad ideas, but rather that you should think about your BM’s personalities and evaluate whether they’d use that kind of thing.

Personally I would be kinda insulted if someone gave me for a gift skin care products. That is like saying I have bad skin. I would do the spa wraps.

For example for my BM’s they are getting personalized beach totes that zip up, the jewelry to wear for the day of the wedding. Picture frames that say friends on it and then gift cards to their fave coffee shop/ store.
