I am seriously struggling with Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. Would you like this? I am paying for the girls hair, mani/pedi, but I don’t really consider that part of the gift. Since it’s for the wedding.
I was thinking these Coach makeup bags, and inside I would include earrings and a bracelet. Plus a $25 gift card to a store/restaurant that I know they love (a different one for each).
Is this enough? Would you appreciate it?

I think it’s a really cute idea…you might even be able to upgrade to a small Coach clutch if you hit up the Kittery or Wrentham outlets (given that you are in the Boston area)! 🙂
ETA: I do think that it’s more than enough. You are being very generous – and I like how you are making it personalized for each lady!

I think that’s a good gift. I’m not in love ith coach logo. But that just me. If I got it as a gift I would use it.

I think the value of the gift is where it needs to be, and while it’s not to my personal tastes (I’m a chapstick-instead-of-lipstick-most-days kind of gal), for girls who are more fashion-concious I could see them being quite happy with it. Do your bridesmaids tend to primp a lot? Do you think they’d actually use a makeup bag?

I would love it!!!!! It includes 3 of my favorite things: A pretty way to be organized, jewelry, and a little extra something to splurge on guilt free 🙂

@MsMindle: I actually went to the outlets a few weeks ago and the line was out of the door at Coach! I didn’t wait around but I wish I did.
I’m not big into the Coach logo either, but I do like their stuff and I know my BM’s do as well. They do primp but I worry that they already have makeup bags and don’t need another.

Sign up for coach factory emails they have ridiculous sales. Not everyone likes the coach emblem. But.. I do and would totally use it!

I think you’re being very generous and I like the make-up bag idea but I just don’t like anything with the coach logo all over it.

@TopazWedding: I get em 🙂 That is where I found these bags for a steal… $27 each!

I think it depends on your bridesmaids. For instance, my bridesmaids are very particular with their makeup and store it certain ways, so they likely would not get the best use out of this. Maybe a bag or clutch that they can take out on the town?

@MsMindle: second that! i love the idea, but would probably get more use out of a clutch than a make up bag (thats just because i already have a make up bag i really like though!)
@Bostongrl25: your girls are lucky to have such a thoughtful friend! i think i’ll need to step up my gifting ideas!

Like one of the PP’s, I’m also not a fan of the Coach logo, but it’s a very thoughtful gift and I would use it. I think it’s very thoughtful that you’re including the jewelry and giftcard 🙂
