hi bees. im starting to plan out my bridesmaids gifts. i have three girls, and all were originally FH’s best friends before us girls were friends. i want to get them all a little basket of goodies that are fun, but won’t come off as a cheap gift.
so far i have planned to include
1). an initail necklace for each girl
2). small perfume that represents each girls personality. ie: my cigar smoking, scotch drinking girl will get the “humidor” scent.
3). a cute nail polish kit that also represents each girl
4). a small split of champagne
i would like to wrap everything up in a pretty gift box for each of the girls. none of the items are expected to be used at/for the wedding.
is this something you would like to receive? any input, thoughts, changes to the box?
thanks so much!!

I’d probably only use the champagne to be honest =

@sofialovesmikey: Actually, I love the ideas here, and I would love to get them. I’m not crazy about the style of the initals you have pictured here. I prefer daintier, more classic initials for everyday wear, but I love the concept of it… if that makes sense.

I would use them all. They are all things I would like to have or try out (the nail polish kit) but probably wouldn’t purchase for myself. I’m also just terrible at picking out perfumes so I think it would be really cool to have a friend pick one out that she thinks suits me!

I like these gifts. But to be honest, some of the scents are weird. Who would want to smell like a humidor? :

I’m afraid that like PP I would also only use the champagne.
ETA: Oh, except I just clicked the link to look at those fragrances – some of them are fantastic! I definitely wouldn’t mind smelling like espresso 🙂 You’d need to make sure you get the right one for each girl though – I enjoy doing laundry, but I wouldn’t want to smell like a laundromat…

i agree on the initials — i don’t like the style shown here but i love the idea generally. i like the champagne and the nail kit/polish. the fragrance could be cool, as long as they actually smelled nice.

Just an idea- how about spending more and just giving one item, rather than spending little amounts on a bunch of things? I love the initial necklace idea- like getting one made of Swarovski crystals or similar?

I like all the gifts except the necklaces. I can’t see anyone wearing anything like that. Like someone said before, if you want to get initial necklaces then get something a little more classy (or if you want it to be more fun, go to the other extreme and get those tacky but kind of cool ones with the whole name spelled out in script–do you know what I’m talking about?)
I love these kind of gifts because theyre fun things that I would never purchase for myself, but would probably use at some point if someone else gave them to be. I’d be happy to receive them!

i’m a perfume and nail polish whore, so i’d love those things!
champagne makes me gag, haha. so i’d probably give it away.
and the necklace is cute, but not really my style, so i probably wouldn’t wear it a whole lot.
