I think our planet is already polluted enough with useless junk. We don’t need to create new ways of participating in useless consumerism. Pass.

Ooh I love the case and would use the case to store my good false lashes and give away the lashes inside honestly

It’s cute, but I’m extremely picky with my false lashes and probably wouldn’t wear these. I think your money would be better spent elsewhere.

I dont really even understand a bridesmaid proposal tbh. Is it just asking your friend to be your bridesmaid? To me, I don’t even really understand why you need a gift for this. I’ve never been on the receiving end of a gift just for being a bridesmaid, but maybe it’s different elsewhere.

I would be so weirded out if someone gave me eyelash wigs!  foot-in-mouth

 

I think the whole thing is silly.  Toss the faux hair in the Goodwill pile and ask your friends to be in the wedding party using… wait for it… words.

charlie057 :  yup. I’ve been given small gifts when I was asked to br a bridesmaid before, but not always. Only one that I’ve kept and regularly use. My best friend was nagging the shit out of me to pick my bridesmaids and I blurted out “well I at least know I want you to be a Maid/Matron of Honor but I hadn’t decided on everyone else yet so give me break!” Then we hugged and cried. On a packed rush hour train during our morning commute. Not much of a “proposal” on my part but definitely memorable!

charlie057 :  This is some new thing that’s become popular in the past couple of years, probably thanks to social media. I’ve been a Maid/Matron of Honor 3 times and a bridesmaid twice, and I’ve never been “proposed” to with a gift or anything. I was asked via phone, email, or in person. I also didn’t “propose” to my bridesmaids, I simply asked them.

Skivies91 : OP after your update I really honestly must say, don’t propose with a free ‘regifted’ thing from work.

If you are going to the point to do that, save your money. A gift to propose to a bridesmaid is really unnecessary. Words are free and would be probably much more appreciated and won’t end up being binned.

I would probably save your money on the gifts that will 98% sure end up in the garbage, and maybe just invite all the girls over and spend the money on a couple of nice bottles of wine and some snackies and have a nice night and ask them there!

I only wear good quality lashes on rare occasions. So these are a no from me. And please don’t gift them face mask packs. 

I’d imagine they’ll come up with an accepting proposal from bridesmaids next. Like they will have to come up with a ‘yes’ gift to give the bride.
