So, I’ve been trying to gradually put together my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. I only have 2 girls, so I feel like I can spend a little more on them since it’s just the 2 of them. I’ve been having a hard time trying to figure out what to give them, since they are very different. My Maid/Matron of Honor is not girly. No jewelry, perfume, etc. She wouldn’t use it. My Bridesmaid or Best Man is very girly. My Maid/Matron of Honor cannot use most bath and body sutff, because the heavy fragrance gives her rashes. I didn’t want to just buy something randomly because I wanted it to be a little more personal.
This is what I’ve come up with. I’ve divided the gift into 2 different “categories”, one is stuff for the wedding day, the other is just stuff for them.
In the ‘wedding day” part is a tote bag that I made myself and a pashmina. I themed them on my wedding colors, red and aqua. The red is for my Maid/Matron of Honor, since it’s her favorite color and the blue if for my Bridesmaid or Best Man, since she loves blues and purples.
Along with this is a tank top with “Bridesmaid” and “Maid of Honor” written on them in rhinestones, jst cuz I think they’re cute and I want them in my “getting ready” pictures, plus a pair of flip-flops with rhinestone straps.
Then, in my “other” part, I am trying to make a spa kit. I got them white bathrobes that my mother’s friend is going to monogram for me.(I found them on sale for $6.99 a piece!)
Along with the robe is going to be the spa line from Bath and Body Works. They have 2 different colors of their spa accessories…. you got it, blue and dark pink. So each girl would get a mani/pedi kit, a nail file, a mirror, a loofa, a rubber duck, and a massager thingy along with the products, foot cream, foot scrub, hand cream and manicure scrub. I’ll probabyl throw in some cute, fluffy socks too.
What do you think? Good gift? I’ve gotten a really good deal on everything so far, the bathrobes were $6.99, the pashminas were about $3 on ebay, the bags were handmade and cost about $10/bag in materials, for the tank tops I bought iron-on transfers that cost around $3.99 and the tank tops were 5/$10 (I’m going to make one for me, my mom and my Flower Girl as well). I get a 30% discount at Bath and Body because I work for Victoria’s Secret (it’s the same company). All in all, it’s going to end up around $100 per girl.
Is this something you would be excited to recieve?
