BM and GM gifts??

Recommended Posts

I have been to many weddings this year and not a lot of people get gifts for the BM and GM (or maybe I don't see them) so I wouldn't stress too much. I remember one bride who got customized tote bags with their initials for her bridesmaids which seemed inexpensive and practical.

Hi there,

 

I'm not too sure what the norm is. I think it really depends on your budget and the number of BMs and GMs you're having. I've heard that for a DW, the BM and GM gifts should be a little more than the norm, because they're traveling to be with you and your FI.

 

I ended up getting my BMs very high quality and sturdy beach totes (from Mary Kay), and filled them up with stuff they'll use while they're there (beach towel, flip flops, travel mug, sunglasses, makeup, lint rollers, bug spray, travel pillow, travel manicure set, headache and stomach meds, etc). I basically filled them with all the stuff I put in the OOT bags for guests, plus extra stuff - that I couldn't afford to put in every OOT. I didn't personalize any of the items, 'cause I couldn't decide on a style that I think they'd all like.... And, I know that the only place they may mix up the bags is when we're away. Each gift (bag and contents) cost between $100 & $120.

 

My FI got his GMs a more traditional gift: dress watches. He paid between $100 and $120 per watch, which includes engraving their names.

 

More traditional BM gifts include: jewelery, jewelery boxes, flasks, compacts, picture frames, etc. And, personalization is a nice touch. A digital photo frame might be a nice gift for a DW too. :)

 

Hope that helps a little! :)
