I think they are nice and you shouldn’t second guess yourself. Everyone’s money situation is different, and to be honest, I’ve felt the same way looking at other posts. I’ve been a bridesmaid in two weddings, and the gifts are just an extra special thank you–I’ve never expected gifts for either one.

I think that those gifts are great! Why are you second guessing? 

Not everybody can afford to get all their bridesmaids Tiffany bracelets! (I don’t even like Tiffany, so when I see people who plan to do stuff like that, I think it’s very wasteful!) 

My plan is to do a personalized tote bag (I’m screen printing them myself) and then I’m going to fill it with “Bridesmaids essentials” like bobby pins, travel deodorant/toothbrush/razors/bandaids/etc., snacks (so they won’t be hungry in between meals) and anything else I can think of. 

I’ve also considered getting them each a necklace or a hair accessory for the wedding, but I haven’t decided yet. 

Alternately, for the wedding that I’m in, the bride is paying for part of our dress as our gift. 

I think the thought is more important than the gift itself!

@ecofriendlybride: Thank you! Feel free to steal away! 

Some other ideas I thought of to include were mouthwash, safety pins, a mini sewing kit, a Tide pen, q-tips/makeup applicators, flip flops for the reception (if you are having them wear heels), some one shot bottles of alcohol (if your BMs have a good sense of humor!)…. I’m sure I’ll come up with some other stuff the closer I get to the wedding!

Don’t second guess yourself! I think your gifts are pretty great and I know your BMs will appreciate anything you give them. I really do like that notebook though!
