OK so first off lots of photos so sorry for that then!!
for my two bridesmaids and my one bridesmaster (my male bridesmaid) I’m doing shoeboxes (as below)
one for each, with:
4 bespoke chocolates, different for each of them,
a pair of pants, sexy, cheeky and boxers,
earings for the girls,
cufflinks for him,
and some of their favorite childhood sweets, wham bars for him, cola pips for my sister, and candysticks that me and my sister used to pretend were cigarettes when we were young – back in the day!!
So what do you guys think??
Good? Bad? or Ugly???

You know your friends best, but personally if I were to receive panties for standing in someone’s wedding, I’d be confused and probably embarassed. It’s an odd gift, IMO.
I wanted to give my girls something they’d hopefully look at and remember how special they are to me. I think it’d be a little weird to get up in the morning and remember your friend’s wedding when you put on your panties!
Love the boxes and filling it with some fun candy filler though!

It seems like a nice and thoughtful gift. I may do something similar. Thanks for the idea!

I really like it, but I agree the underwear might be a bit strange to receive (especially since you have a bridesmaster). I’m not a fan of receiving underwear as a gift, but especially since it just seems to be random underwear (not wedding type underwear – like spanks or VS seamless or something).
Unless it is part of an inside joke or something they all would really appreciate, then I would consider finding something besides the underwear to include in your cute little gift box sets. Everything else is really good though – especially since your showing extra thought with their favorite candy – how cute!

Cute, and I have received underwear from friends before due to an appearance of granny panties peaking out from the pants, but I think I would be a bit surprised to see them in a BM gift.

Honestly, knowing my BMs, they would love panties! It’s all in who they are. (Me and my Bm both work for Victoria’s Secret, so we might be an exception. lol. Everyone who works there loves cute panties.)

I agree that the undies may be a tad weird. Otherwise I really like everything else.

Ok – so with all the concerns about the underwear, I thought I’d offer a different perspective! I think the underwear is great and a really fun idea. In one of the weddings where I was a BM, the bride got us all thongs. We all loved them and decided to wear them together the next day (and all of our guys were laughing and commenting about how they’d look up front at the church and know what all the BMs were wearing underneath our dresses!)
It would be one thing if the underwear was the main thing you were getting them (which would then be a little odd) but as a smaller part of a larger multi-part gift, I think it’s great!

I just think underwear should only be a gift from my husband, haha.

hmmm a lot of you seem to have a problem with the knickers, I don’t know if it’s a British/American thing or what – I mean I’m having 3 bridesmaids, my Sister who I’m very close too, my Best friend who I’ve known since we were 4, and my brides-master is my friend who was training to be a doctor on the same ward as I was a nurse, we’re like brother and sister – we’ve even slept in the same bed when he’s crashed round mine before now!! I don’t think my FI was too sure but after a while he understood.
I give my friends knickers all the time, maybe it’s only OK in the UK, maybe my friends have just come to expect weird presents from me !!
