I can see both sides of this debate but I thought I’d share what I’m doing incase there was anything inspired you.

Make-up – we all agreed we prefer to do our oen so paying nothing for that

Hair – I’m paying for them to get thier hair done and a flower to put in their hair (self serving)

Nails – paying for a manacure the day before


– Earings and necklace for the wedding but totally reusable – self serving but reusable

– A charm bracelet and individual charms I picked for each of them – ??

– Lipgloss and a minature perfume – treat

– shoes and handbag for the wedding – self serving but reusable

– robes for the wedding morning and future use – self serving but reusable

– chocolates and a mini bottle of wine – treat

– fridge magnets with personal messages – keepsake

I’ve shopped around for bargins online so I’ve managed to get these for reasonable prices. I hope they like them!

@greenmint: Thanks. If I could’ve afforded to pay for their make-up and hair aswell I would’ve done. In the UK it’s custom for us brides to buy the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses so hence why I ran out of money for the hair and mu.

I totally 100% agree with you!!! You are being SO gracious and courteous, and not being a bridezilla to your girls. I think, if anything, you are going overboard, in the best way possible, haha. You are not being self-serving at ALL, you did a great job with your gifts.
