snowflake1234 :  Rather than split your budget into 4 small gifts for each person, why not personalize the gifts by buying one thoughtful gift chosen for each one’s individual taste and interest?

I like what julies said. I’m getting my girls one of their accessories and a personalized gift. For instance, my Maid/Matron of Honor is getting a shirt with a whole bunch of fish on it. ๐Ÿ˜€ She tried it on before she moved to Australia and didn’t want to pay that much for it, even though she loved it. So I went back when it was on sale and bought  it. She’s gonna die!

I gave one girl a pair of rose gold origami bird earrings- after she had made nearly 200 origami birds for my wedding and she also got a book about how to knit animals, because she is into knitting and other crafty things.

The other girl got a Pandora charm because I know she collects them for her bracelet.

 

I agree, get them something more personalised, you know your girls. They may love starbucks and baileys…but not everyone will want a planner

I’m a fan of getting them each a different, personal gift, but as far as getting the same gifts goes, I think you’re on the right track, as these gifts you’re thinking of aren’t wedding-related. I like the mug and Baileys ideas. Instead of the Starbucks card and additional small gifts, what about buying each girl a gift card to a place she really likes, and make the value of the card more substantial.

Monogrammed mugs are cute, but also look for even more unique mugs, like humorous ones, mugs with book quotes, or mugs relating to her favorite TV show.

My wedding is at the end of November in Florida, so sort of winter/sort of fall/sort of spring/mostly summer. And, since all of my girls are Florida girls through and through and basically live in their flip flops, I got all of them a pair of nice Toms flip flops.

snowflake1234 :  I’d steer away from the personalized planner. For me, that’s a personal thing. Like, everyone is all into the vertical Erin Condren type planners and I HATE them. Unless you get something not very nice, they can be super pricey and would be a total waste for me unless you got the exact kind I like in the exact design I wanted to carry around for a year. 

I’m a fan of buying for each girl individually, which is what I did to great success. The mug and gift card is pretty universal, but for everything else maybe consider checking out their amazon/etsy wish lists or just thinking of them individually.

I’m getting my girls snowflake necklaces, but I’m picking out each one to fit the bridesmaid’s style. So while everyone is kind of getting the same thing, it’s also unique to hopefully reflect them!

I’m doing the Starbucks cups, and mittens. Because winter ๐Ÿ˜

I got a pashmina, a bottle of nail polish (polled them all on their preferred colours and hit Zoya when a great sale was on), a pretty notebook, and a reusable cloth bag that suits their individual style for each girl in my wedding party.

 

I love that your intended gifts are not wedding related. That drives me batty- things that say “bridesmaid” is not something I would ever use, so I feel like the recipients likely feel the same way. I think your ideas are great! I love and collect mugs (obviously a Starbucks gift card would be super handy). I will say, some people are really picky about their planners (I know I am!) so maybe a magnetic personalized stationary pad to put on the fridge? I seriously considered this for my girls as well.
