I was just wondering what you thought of bath/body/cosmestic products as Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts? I was thinking of getting my BM’s gifts like little bags of products such as makeup, lip gloss, body lotion, nail polish, bubble bath etc. I was going to do something fun like Philosophy, burts bees, OPI, Kiehls, etc or should I go with jewelry or other products? let me know.

I would rather have one nice item that would always remind me of the bride, than a bunch of toiletries or cosmetics that I may or may not like or use and are a disposable gift.

I would love it! Especially Philosophy and OPI 🙂 But you have to know what your bridesmaids would like, like my best friend can’t use a lot of products because she has sensitive skin, but I personally love to try different products so it would be perfect for me. I would also have something like jewelry or a scarf/pashmina that they can keep.

To be honest, unless you know they would definitely use the stuff, I wouldn’t do it. Why do they all need to get the same thing? Treat it like you would if you were shopping for their birthdays. Give them something you know each of them would love.

I’m not a fan of these types of gifts because I’m really picky about the products I use. Not that quality products wouldn’t be appreciated, but sometimes even things that are higher quality than what I use, I wouldn’t use just because it throws off my routine.
I guess it depends on your girls. I like the idea of jewelry.

I love cosmetics but i think you need to know what specific things each girl likes.

I can’t stand receiving bath products as gifts in any scenario. I may be biased as it was always what I got on Christmas from relatives that I didn’t like. It always makes me feel like someones hinting for me to go have a bath lol!
I think you are the only one that can answer this question. As PP said it depends on the person you are gifting it to. For instance, I have one Bridesmaid or Best Man who goes out often, always uses new makeup looks and products and loves experimenting with all that stuff. I would absolutely give her a bag full of new makeup products with different shades of lipstick etc as I know she’d appreciate it. Another Bridesmaid or Best Man of mine is very low maintenance and a bit of a tomboy and doesn’t really use any products other than soap. She doesn’t wear any makeup during the day. I think she would appreciate the gift, but she wouldn’t use it and I would prefer to get her something she would use like new gym clothes (she’s a total gym junkie.)

I would like that as a gift- but I am a girly girl who loves that stuff! But I know I have BMs who would never use it and probably not really like receiving it as a gift. You know your girls best!

It definitly depends on your bridesmaids and whether they regularly use things like that. I could see doing it for one or two bridesmaids, but not all of them because it just seems the likelihood of all your bridesmaids enjoying the gift are low.
Give your girls something you would give them on their birthday. I mean you probably wouldn’t give them ALL tolietries for their respective birthdays right?
