…your bridesmaid gift was a bookmark and the other 2 girls got jewelry?
Let me explain: I wanted to get each of my girls something from Tiffany’s that I felt totally represented them. The first two girls wear jewelry regularly, so I got one a necklace and the other a bracelet that I thought they’d love. The third girl, however, does not wear jewelry, so I got her a beautiful sterling silver bookmark with the Tiffany’s heart pendant on it. I thought this would be very sentimental as she is an avid reader and we always exchange books as gifts. Also, I thought it would be something beautiful that she could pass on to her daugther when she’s old enough. I spent the exact same amount on each gift, but I don’t want her to see it and think that her gift isn’t as nice.
What do you think?

If you think she would appreciate it, I think it’s perfect!

Agreed. I think it’s a perfect gift and you tailored it to her likes. Kudos.

I would totally love it and think it was great that you thought of me.
I usually can’t wear jewelry (crazy metal allegies) and I always feel a little mad when people give me jewelry. I just think they really don’t know me if they spend all this time around me and realize I have never ever wore a necklace!

I think she’d love it, write her a little note and explain to her that you know she doesn’t wear jewelry and when you saw the bookmark you thought of all of the books that you had shared in the past and that this reminded you so much of the times together and maybe even put your favorite books in there that you shared and enjoyed. I’d love it honestly!

I think it is a good idea. When you said a bookmark, I thought you meant a cheap plastic thing or something. But a silver one with a heart pendant a great gift for a reader.

If she really doens’t wear jewelery, and is a book lover, I think she would really appreciate the bookmark. That’s really nice!

I think the bookmark sounds lovely 🙂
But I will admit that I was a bit nervous when I first started reading this lol!

I think personalized gifts are way better! What a good idea!

That sounds lovely! Be sure to write a note explaining your reasoning, it’s so thoughtful of you not to just give her jewelry she won’t wear!

Hehe, I pictured a little plastic bookmark at first too but when you explain it, it sounds perfect. I think it’s great that you took each BM’s personality into account.

Agree, especially if you write a note like worcesterbride suggests! I loooooove jewelry but even as a self-proclaimed a bookworm, I do not have a gorgeous bookmark and I’d love it. It’s so thoughtful too…

I like it! I have a friend of mine I always exchange books with for presents and I bet she would totally love it! Also, she very rarely wears jewelry.

It sounds like a very nice bookmark not one of those cheap paper ones. So for someone to be offended by it would be a greedy, unappreciate, materialistic gift monger. It sounds like something she would like if she enjoys reading. You are just personalizing their gifts which is great!
