okay, my 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man have left something to be desired when talking about their duties as Bridesmaid or Best Man. They are my cousins but my Maid/Matron of Honor has been doing everything for me. She planned and paid for my whole shower(2 cousins didnt offer any help). She has been with me at every wedding even so far and she has helped me IMMENSLY in the planning department.
So far, what I have bought all of my Bridesmaid or Best Man: they each get a pink robe, a set of soaps, a necklace from Zales, a lavender candle from Michaels and a pretty box from Michaels.
Is this enough? I know I want to get my Maid/Matron of Honor something more, I was thinking a $30 giftcard to her favorite spa. Is that enough of an amount or should I get her a $50 card?

Check out how much things cost at the spa. Would $30 pay for her to get a treatment? Or would she need $50 to cover it?

$30.00 around here wouldn’t get you much in the way of treatments but I don’t know what prices are like over there.

You could consider taking her to the spa for a manicure/pedicure/masage ect, so it doesn’t seem like she has something really different from other BMs, and it’s more personal.

If the $30 giftcard could help to pay for a certain treatment or perhaps both of you could induldge in some pre-wedding mani/pedi or a massage together.

I agree with a PP saying you should maybe take her and treat JUST HER personally instead of them knowingly being shorted…
Idk, she deserves it for sure but you wouldn’t want to make your other BMs jealous and resentful of the extra special treatment.
Go make some memories instead of a gift card!
