I have been thinking and looking for Bm's gifts. I found a site. (Prettyrobes.com) found some robes at great prices I had to get a total of 8 personalized robes, with slippers. What are some other gifts I should throw in the tote bag, that I will be crafting myself. 💜

    Personalized robes and slippers are actually not considered bridesmaids gifts – they are considered props for your photos. For gifts, I would suggest shopping for them as though it was their birthday. Get them each something unique that reflects them, their personal interests, etc.

    I would make sure the gifts you get them have nothing to do with you, your wedding, then being bridesmaids, nothing being used/worn during your wedding, etc. You could get them gift certificates to one of their favorite places, a nice candle, their favorite perfume, a piece of jewelry that reflects their style, their favorite coffee, etc. The possibilities are endless!

    You can put some nice pampering items in the bag, like bath bombs, bubble bath, face mask, nail polish (or a gift card to get their nails done), tea or coffee, fave snacks, a bottle of wine and chocolates, a good book, fun jewelry, etc everything in the bag doesn't have to match you can personalize it to each person and their hobbies. I love putting together gifts have so much fun with this!

    I'm giving everyone personalized (with names, not bridesmaid) wine tumblers, pens, and bracelets. My MOH is my sister so I'm making her a t shirt quilt with the shirts our mom has saved.

    Props for your wedding are not gifts for them. That includes robes/pjs, any jewelry, covering hair/makeup/dress expenses. There are past posts via the search feature where bridesmaids who are given robes/pjs/jewelry don’t keep them past the wedding day.


    Shop like it’s their birthday. What are their non wedding related hobbies and interests? Find a gift for each bridesmaid that fits their personal interests. Do the same with the groomsmen.

    I would shop like it's their birthday. Anything to use in your wedding shouldn't really be considered a gift for them personally.

    At this point I asked my Bm's for suggestions , something they would like. Truth is whatever will be in these tote bags will be a gift from me from my heart. Starting with the robes and slippers. But I'll wait to see what my Bm's say. Their opinion matters the most.... lol as long as it doesn't break the bank.

    Thing that can be used forgotten like a little compact mirrors some hand lotion with a nice fragrance and a writing pen an candles. I'm putting these things in gifts to my wedding party with a note or a card to each one. I say card because that's a lot of notes for you to be writing. Lol I hope these idea can help you can also look on Esty and Amazon they both will put you on different ideas for gifts

    Thanks Monique. I've been looking on those sites. Lol and I love all the ideas. My Bm's said. They don't mind at all what's in the bag. My sister said she wants food. Lol. They feel like the robes and slippers are enough. God has blessed me with great loving caring BM'S. You and rosebud really helped me out thanks.

    Good idea to ask for suggestions. Every BM doesn't have to have the same gifts as well. Good luck gift hunting!

    I know it's a popular opinion on here that props for your wedding are not considered gifts (robes, slippers), but the weddings I've been in that had these as gifts, I didn't look down on the bride for giving me them. I didn't think twice about it. You know your girls, you'll know if they'd be upset that they're not given something else. I'm getting my girls a zip up hoodie for the day of, but it'll only have their first initial on it so they can use it again. I'm also getting them tumblers, lotion, travel jewelry cases, and a bag. I think I'm going to throw in a small (like $10) gift card to a coffee place I know each of them like.

    Aww Your welcome and I'm happy to hear that they are that caring and supportive and your sis is funny. Mine was good too and as I mentioned before all of them are family in my wedding party and I am thankful for my Bridal Babes. But I did something special for them

    Each sister had a different suggestion I'll get something close to what they suggested. I'll add a P B& J to my sister's with a bag of chips. Lol.
