HELP I need ideas for gifts. Other than robes and drinking glasses. I’ve already purchased shoes for my girls.

    Do a spa gift box or personalized wine tumblers. Check etsy.

    I personally wouldn’t purchase gifts if I provided them with shoes. However, if I had to then I would buy gifts that I know they would use more than once.

    Bath and Body Works! Things like lotion and shower gel are definitely things they'll use

    I gifted large (Get Carried Away Tote, I think) Vera Bradley totes and matching wallets to my BMs. I received one as a BM once and I use it all the time, and the BMs have told me since how often they use it. Now would be a good time to buy with holiday sales going on!

    I like the idea of face masks and compact mirrors

    They dont' all need the same thing. Shop for them like it's their birthday (wine for one, starbucks gift card for another, a mani/pedi gift certificate, etc). Just spend about the same on everyone.

    One of my bridesmaids actually suggested this to me for a gift for them they they will use:

    A small bag (or clutch)

    Mini advil/tylenol

    sunscreen or bug spray (outdoor/woodsy wedding)

    lip gloss/chapstick


    I thought it was a pretty smart idea

    I did personalized tote bags! It’s a great way for them to keep their things together during the eventful day. The bags were around $1.25 each at hobby lobby and I had them monogrammed

    I got my ladies small bags that can be used as a makeup bag or a small purse (from jujube called be quick) in the Harry Potter flying keys design. We're doing a nod to Harry Potter for our wedding and my bridesmaids all enjoy the series. I also made them earrings and bracelets and got them ivory shawl/scarf things since the wedding is in February and they might need a cover up. None are mandatory or even suggested to be worn for the wedding.

    I refused to do robes. I had a man in my wedding party, so I decided to be as gender neutral as possible. I also wanted my gifts to be things they would actually use. The only personalized item was the tote bag with each of their first and last initials. It was simple and not overly feminine.

    Classic LokaiPrice online: $18Current sale price (12/2/19): $12.60I purchased 11 of these for about $2 each at my Jeweler's. I gave two of these to two guests who were bridal attendants because they helped us all get ready the morning of. One of them was my bridesman's girlfriend. My sister gave up her bracelet for this purpose, or I wouldn't have had enough.
    Since my wedding day, I have seen evidence of my bridal party enjoying these gifts. My cousin took her tote, towel and mug to the pool a few days after the wedding and posted a photo on Facebook. My best friend dressed up and took her mug to Dragon Con in Atlanta. Her friend snapped a photo of her having her coffee and it seems to have matched her outfit.

    I would say every girl or guy is different. Buy them gifts you know they'll use then price match to stay within budget. Example some girls in my group are girly so customized monogrammed compact mirrors and a cute tote. Make it special and personal.
