I have absolutely no clue what to get for my soon to be SIL, who I barely know, and is my Maid/Matron of Honor. (Reason is a last minute substitute).
She is my FI’s SIL. For her birthday, we got her an AB crystal heart necklace. For Christmas, she got a box of Yankee Candles in beachy scents, and a beachy holder, to remind her of their honeymoon in Hawaii. I will be meeting her for the first time the day before the wedding. Plus, she has to fly from Boston back to Alaska with whatever I get her.
What I do know – she doesn’t use purses and jewelry very much, and loves Kohls.
Any ideas?? Please??

I know some may disagree but I dont care. If you are confused on what to get her but know she loves Kohls, get her a Kohls gift card, and be honest. Tell her you didn’t really know what she liked. She would appreciate the gift card and also appreciate not having to return what you bought her if it wasn’t something she liked.

I agree with PP – i am sure Maid/Matron of Honor understands cos ultimately she doesnt know you either… if it was me in that situation I think i would appreciate a gift card i could use on what i wanted rather than end up with a gift i may not need/want.
Do you have other BMs? Are they each getting similar gifts? If so then you could just do the same for the SIL…

Kohls gift card all the way, with a nice note thanking her for being Maid/Matron of Honor and sayingHowe excited you are to get to know her as a sister.

OK, Kohls Gift Card it is. How much money left in the bank accont will determine what amount it is, the week before the wedding. She was originally the reader, and my sister the “bridal attendant”, so I got them each Pashminas and a small leather photo album. She will still get those as well. My original Maid/Matron of Honor, I purchased some wine glasses that she had been searching for, since I knew she wanted them, as a surprise. And this whole post reminded me that I now need to figure out a present for the new reader.
