Bridesmaids Favors

I'm brainstorming ideas for the favor box for my bridesmaids and maid of honor. I have some generic things in there: Pashmina Shawl (just in case they get cold for our Fall wedding), accessories for their outfits, personalized satin PJs (for getting ready), personalized wine tumblers (for the mimosas), and I'm also buying and having them keep their dresses. I wanted to put something in a little more personal for each of them though. Something that that aligns with their interests. Below is a little bit about each of them and would love to get your thoughts on what a good gift for them would be:

MOH - She's a photographer. Very artsy. She's planning on traveling around the US State Parksin her RV some time next year. (I may join her if I get bored lol). I know nothing about photography and not sure what she would need for her RV adventures!

My SIL - She LOVES her dog. I was thinking of getting like a matching bracelet and dog collar for her and her pup. She also loves to grow plants.

My cousin - She is currently working from home. She is due to have a baby this April so maybe something cute for her and her new baby? Her husband just got a gig at United Airlines so they'll probably be doing a lot of traveling after the baby is born and he's a bit older.

My other cousin - She's a traveling nurse and moves around a lot. Although, she feels as though she may set roots in Napa (but she really doesn't drink much... she just loves it there haha!). She's also a super planner and loves to write everything down, but she has a million planners already lol. She also loves giant tote purses. So, I was thinking a nurse or travel themed tote bag?

Thank you in advance for the ideas!

    For SIL (dog lover), there are lots of independent artists on Etsy who will paint portraits of your pets – they can be realistic, pop art style, some even do oil or black velvet paintings of them dressed as royalty or in period clothes. Or, if that’s not her style, you could book a photo session with your MOH to take professional photos of her beloved dog!

    For your cousin who is pregnant working at home, you could get her a stylish diaper bag. Even Betsey Johnson makes them now! Or, a mono colored lounge said that is so popular right now- they are perfect for staying comfy and cozy (and still looking cute!) while pregnant and working from home

    For your other cousin, who is big on organization, you could get her an electronics organizer. I am a freak about organization, and this was one of my favorite things I have ever gotten as a gift! It’s so convenient to have one place to keep all your electronics and accessories organized, like extra batteries, cords, earbuds, headphones, etc.

    Omg that looks funny! Haha and I absolutely love the idea of a personalized painting. Unfortunately, we are all living in different areas of the country and I'm not sure if she's bringing her doggo with her at our wedding (dog friendly hotel though!), but I really like this idea of a painting Smiley smile I'll look into it. You have really good ideas by the way haha! Super thankful!

    I'm going with the digital file for the custom pet portraits. I also need it for my younger brother who is obsessed with his two dogs. He will appreciate the old renaissance type ones for his pups lol! My SIL will probably like something in water color. Walgreens has sales on their canvas prints very often so this is perfect! Thanks again for the great idea!

    Are these thank you gifts or proposal gifts? As far something personalized, instead of engraved/monogrammed, fit their individual interests like you are shopping for their birthday. Etsy is a great place to check out. For the pregnant cousin, get something she will enjoy and do baby gifts separate.

    That’s what I’m trying to get at with personalization. That’s why I added a little bit about them. The suggestions Cece recommended are exactly the recs I’m looking for.

    For your MOH could you get her a fancy sketch book and pencils if she is arty and draws? Or a travel journal that has her initials on the front so she can write about all her adventures?

    For the SIL could you give her some seeds that she could grow into trees or roses or something that would help her remember your wedding and think of you guys Smiley smile?

    For your cousin could you pay for her to have a pre-baby massage? I'm sure her body must be feeling like it could use some pampering Smiley smile

    For the nurse - I think a nurse tote bag sounds good for her is she loves totes Smiley smile You could always get her initials on it or get her a plain one with her initials monogrammed on it as well.
