That’s a lot of ‘stuff’.  Were you looking to add something sentimental?  Or just another ‘thing’.

If sentimental, I’d include a handwritten card, telling that Bridesmaid or Best Man what you’ve appreciated about her throughout your friendship and during wedding planning.

If another ‘thing’, how about a mani/pedi gift certificate?

I was in the same boat, had everything just needed something extra.  I ended up using a 30% off coupon to Kohls and getting 6 comfy cotton, short robes they can wear while we were4 getting ready that day (we had a lot of time to kill, lol).  They all loved them!

wow that is a lot of stuff!  I think you’re probably set!  I mean you can still always pay for meals the morning of – get snacks ready and stuff for mimosas.  Or pay the room service bill and let everyone order lunch.  Or order in fruit etc.  You can pay for their hair and/or nails.  I agree – write them a nice personal card and they’ll love that!  also what about a pre and/or post wedding mini email thanking them again!  Say youre so excited/were so excited!

M.Ruder: You’re so very welcome. I am already married, so didn’t need them for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. I saw them on a post the other day. I instantly went and bought two leopard print ones. One is for me and one is for a gift, of some sort. I get good things on sale and go through them when a gift is needed. I also shop year round for Christmas, so it was perfect.

Wow! What a lovely set! (Everone loves a bit of Accessorize!). I don’t think you need to add anything else, but when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man last year, we were given white waffle dressing gowns with ‘Bridesmaid’ on the back. The bride said they cost her under a fiver each. Bargain! (I suspect Google may help with this if you’re interested!)

PS. I love the idea of a handwritten card x

Oh yeah as some of the other ladies suggested: a hand written note. I did that and it really meant a lot to my ladies.

Just curious: What’s the diff between a robe and a dressing gown? I have never heard of that before.
